Gone
QB Tom Vatter
RB Jordan Nettles
RB Zakee Swann
TE Michael Cerniglia
LB Walter Riley
LB Mike Newman

Position Changes
Woodly Appolon to LB from Safety
Jyran Mitchell to RB from WR

Surprised about Nettles. He must have been told he wouldn't be the starter.

Tom Vatter had quite the short stint at NIU.

I bet these dudes got cut. Vatter was a Juco backup.

Nettles is a big surprise to me. Hopefully Erin Collins and Rondarious can pick up the slack? Collins was a NC State kid.

Was always hopeful Nettles would be a playmaker with that speed, but honestly, his 3.8 ypc career average probably had him not seeing the field much this year. He will be the kind of guy who dominates when he goes FCS.

i don't think Nettles is a devastating loss, but you're kidding yourself if you don't think he would have been heavily in the mix.

All our Safety's are Freshman or RS-Freshman.Appolon would have provided some experience there. Odd.

Heavy in the mix as the starter? Nah. He was probably locked in as the third down back, but I don’t think he had a shot at being the starter.

My guess it’s Collins right away with majority of the snaps.

They gave Trayvon Rudolph a scholly this morning so he's doing work. He's on the Chad Spann plan. Show up to camp, ball out, earn a scholly in two weeks.

He's a 3 star kid with offers from a bunch of MAC schools. I like what I see.

Remember Hammock is historically good at coaching up kids, both talented and not.

Lots of success with Garrett Wolfe, James White, Melvin Gordon, Gus Edwards, Justin Forsett and Alex Collins.

Edwards bounced around Miami and Rutgers and wasn't a big contributor at either school, thus was undrafted. Forsett bounced around many rosters and wasn't a huge contributor till he came to Baltimore and made a probowl. Lastly Collins was a guy Seattle didn't see any value in, and he looked very effective off the street in Baltimore.

I asked Ham about it, and he says it comes down to kids who want to be coached and take advice. Hopefully he can mold a few of these guys into NFL talent. I want to see another lights out runner that we haven't seen since Jordan Huff.

RE: 2020 football roster is up
Rudolph is a WR not a RB, but I was excited about him immediately after watching his highlights when he committed. Was a QB in high school that is flat out dynamic with the ball in his hands. I expect him to contribute some right away and then be THE guy out of the slot and on jet sweeps once Richie is gone. As for the RB position and Nettles leaving... I think a rotation of Collins, Gregory and Ducker will turn out to be a good group. Starting to get excited for Husky Football!!!!

That Online has 2 really good players...Cox & Z. The other 3 spots should be fine. RB is a winner....wait & see on those receivers, nothing to write home about at this time. That D looks young and not strong upfront.

I thought he was transferring? Did he change his mind?

RE: 2020 football roster is up
I feel like this team is switching back to offense first. The last half of Carey’s time it was a defensive team(that will happen when you have Sutton Smith on D and Childers as your QB). But the best talent on paper appears to all be on O.

And I’m sure this was mentioned before but I missed Eddie Jackson moving to LB. Why take a good sized, successful safety and make him a small LB? Team need I’m sure. Just have to see.
