Austin Barnes is considered a good punt prospect for the NFL. Among the best at his position.

RE: Unofficial 2017 FB Pre-Camp Thread
BTW, the main MAC board has a thread on the Orlando Sentinel's college FB countdown.

Charlotte is ranked #126.

No Rutgers, Kentucky or Army yet. (they have gone from #130 to #98 so far).

I still believe those three games will be challenging. Do not sleep on Rutgers or Army. And Kentucky was a bowl team in 2016.

He would have been a 5th year senior one of the last of English's recruits. He probably graduated and either will be a 5th year transfer or move on.

We still have Oraha on the roster who has been on the team for a while and I think both or either of one of the placekickers can also punt. No doubt Barnes was great at his position will be missed took alot of pressure on defense, next man up.

Frankly I think that's a crock. We have a potential depth problem at TE, an unproven punter and offensive line questions. I really think our defense will be stepping up this year and improved over last year.

I looked that article up and it completely confuses me.

Here is their listing of teams in rank order. EMU #96 with a lot of MAC teams below them.

This 'ranking' has teams placed in tiers with us in the big broad 3rd tier.

I did think of 5th year grad transfer option. He got a med. redshirt one year.

His Twitter account says that's what he's looking for. Too bad for us.
