Not seeing Teric Jones on the new chart. Did I miss something. Last I heard Rich Rod was moving him back over to the offensive side of the ball because of all our new recruits in the secondary.
spoiler alert: i linked this
one of those RB/slot guys. He was a 5'9" 186lb running back out of high school.
Is moving over to offense for spring. I don't think the coaches know for sure where he will end up, cornerback, running back or slot receiver.
Was not very impressed w/ T. Jones in the Delaware St. game. Looked small and slow. I think he would be better suited on the other side of the ball w/ all the help coming in for the secondary.
Yeah, Teric had a tough day in that game. I don't think he looked slow speed-wise, but his decision-making was definately not honed. He never seemed to make the right read or take a good angle on plays that went his way. The only time during the day Baby Seal U moved the ball was when they were throwing at him.
To be fair wasn't Teric originally recruited as a slot/RB and moved to DB due to numbers, etc? I thought I remember reading at some point, Teric played sparingly on defense in HS. This of course begs the question, why move the kid in the first place, but as we all saw last year, there wasn't a whole lot else in regards to players in the defensive backfield. Maybe the coaches saw something they liked in Teric during practice and thought that he could transition into becoming a DB?
I took him off the D list but forgot to put him on offense. Fixing.
So, it was briefly mentioned here that Teric is moving back to offense.
Jones, who saw spot duty at cornerback last year, will move back to running back/slot receiver this spring, Wilcher said.
For some better clarification of what Teric will do see Brian's recruitment post about him.
Michigan might be shooting Jones into lots of space as a slot receiver. Rodriguez said Jones was a slot receiver who "may also get reps at running back"
Rodriguez said the RB's and the Slot's duties will "overlap" in the spring. Meaning, they're installing more of the offense.
... I'm wondering who sees the field at corner. Assuming Woolfolk moves back to safety and some combo of Turner/Christian/Dorsey/Floyd are the starting cornerbacks, will either little Talbott or Courtney Avery play as a true freshman?
Four corners on the depth chart isn't a whole lot, especially if one of those guys gets hurt or really struggles early in the year.
there are more than four corners
and Woolfolk if need be.
