Good to see Smith at safety to compete with Carter, Hall, Bolden, Keontra and Bob Knowles.
The article reported he needs to gain weight to really man up for the striker position. It also said he's currently 6'1" 192...Did Frierson eat his way into a striker, or was he moved there because he truly belongs there? I remember a poster saying he didn't take his RS year seriously and partied a lot, gaining weight in the process.
The thread below is where i heard about it. Also 192lb is his listed weight on the UM official roster. That information is rarely updated/correct. It just struck me as odd he went from looking better than Ivey and Blades in spring to completely disappearing from the picture and returning as a striker.The article reported he needs to gain weight to really man up for the striker position. It also said he's currently 6'1" 192...
I don't think he's eaten his way into the striker position.
Joyner is still listed as a DL on the rooster FWIW.WLB - Michael Pinckney/ Waynmon Steed/ Sam Brooks
MLB - Shaquille Quarterman/ BJ Jennings
SLB - Zach McCloud/ Patrick Joyner/ Avery Huff
Striker - Romeo Finley/ Gilbert Frierson
DeAndre Wilder can play both Sam backer & Striker if he ever comes back healthy.
I'm also curious to see if Diaz/Baker like Joyner at Mike or Strong side.
