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.

http://www.sbnation.com/college-football...rojections

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.

No problem. We just won't punt this season... 03-lmfao

Seriously, redshirting benefits the school but can also come back to bite it.

I wonder what the one-year market is for punters?

Good programs will take an impact player, but a special teams player, even a good one???

Barnes is a difference maker. He'll be picked up shortly. Wish him well.

What's the point? Something specific at ECU related to his major, or grad school?

Won't help at all with NFL dreams. AAC barely a step up from MAC. A punter is a punter. The numbers tell the story, not whether he's in the MAC or the AAC. If it was the Big10 or SEC, maybe you could see it, because of the extra exposure. AAC....uh....no.

Strange. Sad to see him go, he was a weapon.

Agreed, must be something else to the story.

I know we're looking at possibly a JUCO punter for this year but haven't officially offered and looking at various true frosh ones for 2018. Want to see at least two JUCO OL and a JUCO or prep school TE before July 1.
