Look forward to seeing him next year..........and hopefully solving one of our OT problems for the following 4 years.

So I'm guessing he redshirts this year and regains eligibility for 2018? He is listed on the roster, has a 6'5 frame to add additional muscle and learn the game.

Assume so. He is a BIG kid with a bright future. Probably would have been starting OT before the year was over, as a true freshman. Probably says more about our current struggles at the position, than him being all world or anything. Fact remains, he's big, with good feet, and very likely our starter next year assuming everything gets worked out.

He's already 6'5" and 315lbs, so plenty big. Not a ton of bad weight there either. Just needs to turn some of the baby fat into muscle, which he'll certainly do over the next year (if he has any work ethic at all).

Glass half full I guess.

i was reading another forum (WMU) and they seem to be having NCAA issues as well.

Why is everyone writing off the season for him (as a redshirt)? Very likely NCAA is still working on pending decisions.

Dear steve and EagleTough,
We still have a few days for the NCAA to make its decision.

RE: Charlotte 49ers at EMU
He's not on depth chart, stick a fork in him, time to move on. Bukoski is the man right now. Close between he and Armstrong, but apparently Armstrong is only about 275 so Bukoski gets his shot. If Nielsen gets hurt we're in deep doodoo, that's where Sow was competing. The other 2 guys behind Nielsen are not ready for this level.

For whoever thought Samuelson would compete, he got moved inside from OT, and still ended up 3rd string!

Will be holding breathe all year hoping OL stays healthy.

On a positive note, next year the OL will be returning a load of experience. That will help with the new QB situation. They will need to recruit the position heavily though. Isn't there already a few OL commits?

I'm pretty sure he will not be listed on the depth chart until if and when cleared by the NCAA.
