Fall Camp notes

Here are some thoughts about how the Fall has gone so far.

Here are some thoughts about how the Fall has gone so far.

  • Nick Foles and Matt Scott are basically equals right now. If the coaching staff wants more mobility, Scott is likely the answer. If it wants a better deep ball, Foles is the better option.

    Both players have left something to be desired, but that seems to be the pattern each Fall. Just when you start to worry about the offense, it has an impressive performance and everything is just fine.

  • Brooks Reed is emerging as one of the better defensive players in the Pac-10. Sure, it is only practice, but the impact he is going to make is obvious.

    Reed makes everybody's job easier because the opposing offensive line has to focus so much on him. Don't be surprised if he reaches double digit sacks this season.

  • Trevin Wade is another exciting defensive player. He seems to always be in the right place at the same time and will likely succeed because of it.

    Wade is the starter opposite of Ross right now and rightfully so. We would not be surprised if he wound up being the best corner on the team.

  • Juron Criner is trying to give Terrell Turner all he can handle. While Turner not being the starter would be a major surprise, Criner has been very impressive so far.

    He continually makes extremely athletic plays and by the end of the season, could team the team in yards per catch. There is plenty of competition at wide receiver, but Criner is starting to emerge.

  • Sione Tuihalamaka is the most impressive freshman physically. He ran with the second team on Sunday and seems to be moving up the depth chart.

    In terms of other physically impressive players, Jonathan Hollins is a man among boys. He is likely the starter from day one, as he should be.
