    Are there any redshirt freshmen that stood out at practice this fall?

    Can anyone on this board that either regularly attended practice or has inside information give us an update on freshmen that did not participate in games this season?

    Chris Black is a redshirt that looked good. The staff spent a lot of time A. Taylor as well.

    I haven't heard anything but I'd be surprised if Eddie Williams doesn't make an impression this spring. He had further to go to learn the defensive back position than others but from an athletic and hitting standpoint this guy was top of the line. At the very least he should deliver some serious headaches on kickoff coverage.

    When EW committed in 2011, he was the #1 Safety in the nation IIRC. The recruiting folks eventually switched his label to Athlete. Of course, CNS's system does take some serious learning, though.

    do you mean players who redshirted this year or redshirt freshmen? I've heard rumblings about Tomlinson as far as redshirted players go as well as black, alphonse taylor and brandon greene.

    I also understand Austin Shepard is a name to look out for on the o line, not sure what year he is though.

    I'm curious to see how Korren Kirven looks this spring. I think he could be a pleasant surprise. I've heard Caleb Gullege has put on some good weight and is huge now. Wonder if he will battle for a starting spot.
    I also wonder if Adam Griffith will win the short field goal kicking duties or will Cade do both next year. Cade looked a lot better this year.

    I do not know any specifics about individuals but I think our scout team tackled Lacy better this year than ND did.

    I think Eddie was switched to WR, but not sure if he will stay there, or go back to DB. Anxious to see what he can do - he'll have competition at either position, but I'm looking for him to make his mark.

    He started out at WR but due to some injuries he switched back to Safety and of course that put him back some IIRC.

    Watching the NC game I thought I saw another Castille (a younger brother of Tim and Simeon) on the sideline. Does anyone know anything about him?
