The team officially announced five incoming freshmen today - QB Chris Laviano, RB Dontae Ayres, LB Lester Liston, CB Nadir Barnwell, and CB Delon Stephenson. Barnwell and Stephenson should have good opportunities to see time next fall both because of talent and need, while Liston has a chance at the two deep. The other two will probably redshirt.
One surprising name not on the list is punter Dean Crozier. He seemingly came out of nowhere a few weeks back, only to disappear just as fast due to eligibility issues. Honestly, it was a surprise that a 24-year old foreigner was eligible to begin with. So, that raises the question about whether the staff is comfortable with DiPaula next year or not.
