You forgot to add Saad, but even still, he'd likely be in the rotation as a red shirt sophomore. I don't think anyone on the roster is entrenched as a starter at this point (outside of the seniors).Does anyone think it has anything to do with the number of DT we have on the roster? Maybe that isn't, or shouldn't be a factor. But this is what we have (I think):
Dew-Treadway - Sr
Schad - Sr
Hickcox - Jr (hasn't played much)
Robinson - Jr (hasn't played much)
Teague - Jr
Kern - So (hasn't played much -- walkon?)
Cheney - RFr
Richter - RFr
Carter - RFr
Eastern - 2021 (recruited as DE, but would not be surprised if he moves inside)
Note: I'm using Sr, Jr, etc. in the sense of how many season they have left to play.
Maybe Teague, as well? I think he has played a fair amount in two seasons as a true freshman and soph.You forgot to add Saad, but even still, he'd likely be in the rotation as a red shirt sophomore.

exactly. Some of these commits have never even been on campus nor taken official visits. Once those open up it has the potential for many kids to experience what else is out there.I'm surprised that as many players have committed during the pandemic and I won't be surprised if some change their minds. It's a difficult decision for these players in the best of times. The current situation adds to the difficulty. It would have been great if Regis hadn't de-committed, but I still wish him the best.
And that is OK?17-year-old kid changes mind.
"this has never happened before...."
on a semi-related note, I was reading an article the other day about people who called off weddings at the last minute. In some cases, bride or groom literally got up in front of the church, said "I can't do this," and ran out of the church. people change their minds all the time about all types of things.
Exactly, and that ain't what it used to be. My point exactly. "A man is only as good as his word."
Grown men getting upset at 17 year olds kids for not picking their favorite school is definition of pathetic.Deciding what school to go to was difficult for me and I wasn't being recruited by anyone. He's seventeen and deserves some slack. I wish him success wherever he ends up.
It helps if you think of Veritas like Benjamin Button. He is clearly on the back stretch of his life and, therefore, probably about aligned with a 17-year-old mentally right now.Grown men getting upset at 17 year olds kids for not picking their favorite school is definition of pathetic.
