Literally no one was predicting that before the season started. Every year, new and unexpected guys are given the opportunity to step up and many of them do, it's the nature of college sports.

As people have pointed out, last season it was reported that Fisher was pushing Roberts for the #1 TE spot until he got injured. Bradley made some big plays in the spring game this year too. The TE position will continue to benefit from the fact that defenses have to pay attention to Thompson, and J Johnson and D Johnson first. I think it will be ok.

Yeah, Chioke had a good Spring.

RE: Work ethic drives UT's Thompson
thompson is a wonder. hope he stays healthy and we push him for all american.

TE is gonna OK. Kulon is healthy and a big strong blocker in his 5th yr. Other younger players have begun to mature and have played behind an NFL guy. so, they know the expectations.

there's always a few true frosh that star or become good role players at some point. often, they are not the big recruits. guys like teacher and thompson, diontae johnson and blue, were all under the radar recruits that played right away. eric page, anybody?

Thompson also on the watch list for the Wurfell trophy, for community service.

Curious as to why the article doesn't mention the Biletnikof Award?
