"Any time you bring in a junior college guy you probably think a guy is going to come in and compete right away and they are probably in a need position," Rich Rodriguez said.
"Certainly up front we need guys on the defensive line. Matt Morin I think is a guy that is going to give us a lot of versatility because he play a couple positions, including quarterback, even though his primary position will be at tight end, H-back. Paul Magloire, with our safeties graduating, I think Paul has a chance to come in and contribute."
"We have a few guys we grey shirted last year that will be here in January, probably 7,8,9 guys starting with our program in January," Rodriguez said. "That will be a good thing because that means they will be here for spring ball."
"It’s high, higher than the normal," Rodriguez said. "The grey shirted guys brought that number up, but we are constantly evolving and trying to get our roster. We are still not playing as many guys, but some of it is that they are not ready yet."
"Typically the last practice before the break is not the best because they are thinking about Santa Claus and Christmas," Rodriguez said. "Hopefully they will get in a good one Monday morning before they go home."
"Up and down," Rodriguez said of Jones' season. "At times he competed well, but he played at times like it is his first year in the system.
"He is a really competitive guy and it is important to him, so I am excited what he can grow from this year like a lot of the other first year players."
"He’s a competitive, athletic guy," Rodriguez said. "He’s not the biggest guy, but he knows what we’re doing and when he has had his chance in there he has played pretty well."
