Newcomers report to Cats

The 2006 football season got just a little bit closer on Tuesday as the newcomers reported to the football program. The veterans report on Wednesday and things get going on Thursday with the first full practice.

33 players reported, with 18 of them being scholarship players. The Cats have six other scholarship players who they are still waiting on.

Defensive End Braylon Broughton is still awaiting a test score, while Michael Turner, D'aundre Reed and Derke Robinson were all awaiting clearance from the NCAA Clearinghouse.

Junior college transfers Gabe Long and Louis Holmes were still finishing up some coursework and their status remain uncertain. Holmes felt confident that he could be ready to go as early as this week, though early next week seemed more likely. Long's status is more up in the air.
