The Viewing

Alright, so we know JoJo Domann is the truth. Moving on.

Caleb Tannor has not lived up to his recruiting hype. Yet. I hope that he will have more opportunities to rush the passer this season. If Tannor can live up to what we think he should be then we should have a good one-two punch at the OLB position.

If JoJo Domann is the truth, then Garrett Nelson is moose.

I just wanted something to rhyme.

Nelson played extensively as a true freshman and probably would have benefited from a year redshirting but the state of the OLB position is where it was so that couldn’t happen.

I am looking forward to see if we hearing anything from David Alston and Jamin Graham. Hopefully we do.

I think we have a good one-two punch, but hopefully this spring we will find that there is more depth there than we realize.

Hugs All Around

Don’t worry. Everything will be fine.
