Unfortunately we are leading off with some not so good news. It appears that Raymond Cotton's short time as a South Alabama Jaguar are over. Right after his exceptional performance in the spring game he was suspended due to poor academic performance. Indications are that he is so far behind that it will impossible for him to recover in time to play this fall. It is very likely that he will be leaving school and perhaps follow in his father's footsteps and joining the military. Other players with academic concerns are Kendall Houston, Audoniss Madison and Sean Kennedy, but their situations are no where near as dire as Cotton's.
Speaking of the spring, Ucambre Williams, the redshirt freshman who moved from offensive line to defensive line and then back again, had a great spring practice season. He did not have a good performance in the spring game but the coaching staff is very encouraged by what he can do at guard.
The spring game coincided with Junior Day and top target Daniel Aust was in attendance. His visit went very well. Aust had shoulder surgery this offseason and will not be able to work out until the summer. Nevertheless the staff is still very high on the offensive lineman.
Bradley Steele, an offensive lineman from Prattville was also in attendance. Reports were that he had committed to USA but on his visit both Steele and the South Alabama staff agreed that both sides needed more time to size each other up. USA is looking to load up on offensive linemen in this class but they are hoping to bring in players with a rangy build, which is not Steele's body type.
That's all for now. Be on the lookout for more news from the JagJungle.com staff.
