STrib: Saving redshirts

Saving redshirts

Gophers coach P.J. Fleck revealed last week that freshman linebackers Donald Willis and James Gordon IV will redshirt this year after they play four games on special teams: But as far as other redshirts, he was keeping everything open.

Freshman running back Cam Wiley has already played one game when injuries depleted his position. While ideally, Fleck would like to redshirt Wiley, the coach knows Wiley has the potential to play more if needed.

He said it is similar with freshman quarterbacks Jacob Clark and Cole Kramer.

“To run the game out [against Illinois last week], I put Seth [Green, wildcat quarterback] in there as well,” Fleck said. “Because I could easily put another quarterback in there, but that counts as one [game]. You just never know. So you’re constantly thinking ahead of what could possibly go wrong.”

Go Gophers!!
