Observations

  • Houston Miller and Noah Jones were running with the 1s on a lot of the reps with the d-line. 
  • At quarterback reps went as expected with Nic Shimonek on first team, McLane Carter on second and then Xavier Martin. 
  • For running backs, looks like Justin Stockton is running with the first team. Demarcus Felton showed the most spark on the offense as he made a few big plays during the scrimmage portion. DaLeon Ward had one good play that I remember where he ran through the tackles for a big break. 
  • Antonie Wesley got a lot of reps at WR and him and Jonathan Giles made some impactful plays in the scrimmage portion. Did not see much of Quan Shorts, who I wanted to see in action.
  • Brown shirt report: Madison Akanonmu and Joe Wallace are still in brown shirts but those are the only two that I saw.
