6'1 3-star Corner from DC, we were in his final group with Wisconsin, and Penn State.
EDIT: Mr. Miggle below has pointed out that TT was only used in the first two games - I hadn't seen that = my bad. In that case it is extremely likely that he and the coaches will apply for a redshirt for last year and it will almost definitely be granted assuming that an injury was the reason he was held out thereafter. So hopefully a moot point about Talbott - but if the coaches do apply for his redshirt then it says that Hoke & Co. do not agree with the many opinions below that basically say: play the guy in two games without regard to losing eligibility.
The emergence of Terrence Talbott as a viable option at CB raises the old question about why coaches uselessly burn redshirt years. Talbott is a prime example because he is very young for his class (remember his older DL brother was in the same class) so a year of extra growth would have been beneficial. He was pressed into duty as a freshman due to the lack of DB bodies in 2010, but last year he was not needed so could have redshirted. Instead he appeared in TWO games on special teams with no stats and thus a year of elegibility for a CB who now appears valuable was lost.
We have seen this happen many times, and as mere fans it always seems like a form of insanity. The stock answers like " the kid worked so hard all year we wanted to reward him by getting him on the field" are lame in a case like Talbott's. Somewhere beyond the land of coachspeak there must be a real answer to this question. Wanna try this one Heiko?
