1/15/23 EDIT - Removed portal and NFL-bound kids completely. Tired of tracking their new home or if they may return - it’s too much. Let me know if I missed a portal event 🤷

Maybe ‘mis-positioned’ a couple DL/DE guys? If there is a SR returning with eligibility that I left off let me know.

Tried to place in some sense of depth chart but what do I know…with exception of DB group which is somewhat organized but random still

SR* = still another yr eligibility (I think)
SR** = 2023 is last remaining - Super SR (I think)
* by any other year = redshirted a year already

And the obvious question from this list is: How many of these who are injured could be ready to play as soon as January?

...and if I may tag on this question regarding a bowl roster: Can redshirts play in January bowl games without violating their redshirt year?
The NCAA changed the rule a few years ago that Redshirt players can compete in up to 4 games and still maintain their Redshirt status. Anything over 4 games and the redshirt is gone.

Love it. We have a lot of experience coming back on defense unless anything changes with eligibility or transfers. Looks like next season will rest on the shoulders of Joe Milton and getting comfortable with this group of receivers. Still think the running back room needs a transfer portal guy.

EDIT - Thanks to input from others I made an attempt….

Here’s what I think we have plus a couple more recruits and portal. Let me know what I’ve missed…pretty sure I’ve ‘mis-positioned’ a couple:

** My quick thought - that LB group looks thin. Need a portal guy and/or convert someone looking to the future

Where is Darnell Wright. I know it’s a strong possibility he may go pro, but also a possibility he returns.

I think he’s gonna project high enough to make it a no brainer. We had him for 4 years and these last two he has really matured as a player. I think he plays on Sundays next year. I’m glad he stayed when other bailed out.

Cameron Seldon could end up anywhere from WR, RB, or TE on offense to LB or Safety on defense. Good athlete - I hope we find a spot that works for him and for us.
You’re absolutely correct. Made an assumption. I think he could get playing time at WR first year like Squirrel did this year and be an impact player Year 2…if not Year 1. But he absolutely could be placed somewhere else.
