Head coach Dana Holgorsen met with the media Monday to discuss what he has seen through the first few weeks of practice. During the conference Holgorsen made note that transfer running back Rushel Shell has emerged as a top back on the team. According to the coach, Shell has fantastic ball skills. Holgorsen also made note through two weeks the team is "still pretty healthy." Tight end Cody Clay has improved as an option to catch the ball down the field, and fullback Elijah Wellman has "great potential" for the future.
