Any news on how summer workouts are going?
The first session is a little different. Some players choose to work out at home during the first session, but attendance has been very good. Anthony Waters, Gaines Adams, Chansi Stuckey, Will Proctor, and the rest of the seniors are doing a great job. Tiger fans should feel very confident in the senior leader ship of this team.
The freshmen will arrive on campus in about a week. Second session is when they really start to crank it up. There is a different intensity level in the second session. The players understand the more crisp they can be going into August, the better off they will be.
If you could guess, what freshmen will avoid a redshirt?
CJ Spiller, Ricky Sapp, and Jamie Cumbie are three that I would be shocked barring injury, if they do not see the field this season. You can also put Jacoby Ford in the same category as those three. Crezdon Butler and Darius Gaither will both have an opportunity to make a splash in the secondary. Right now, I would lean towards a redshirt for Gaither, and Butler avoiding a redshirt. Jeremy Campbell and Kevin Alexander are redshirt candidates, but they are one injury from one or both seeing the field. Jeffrey Ogren is on the bubble, but we would lean towards a redshirt at this point. Byron Maxwell is a complete mystery at this point, because we have no idea how is going to bounce back from his injury.
Is there any update with Chris Little, are the rumors true that he is a silent commitment to us?
There is no truth to the rumor that he is a silent commitment to us. Little has been laying very low, which probably stems from the whirlwind process Antonio Clay went through at Twiggs County. Dexter Copeland never wants to put one of his players through that mess again. Clemson, Georgia, and Florida State would be the top three in my opinion. Ron West has done a great job in Twiggs County the last two years, and his ties certainly will make Clemson a strong factor.
