As of last season, a new NCAA rule went into effect allow a player to play in up to 4 games and still receive a redshirt designation. As such, it has made it worthwhile to track which freshmen were seeing playing time in each game to determine which players will land a redshirt at the end of the year.

In week 3, 6 of Miami's 16 true freshmen saw the first game action of their careers. They were: Jeremiah Payton, Jason Blissett, Jared Harrison-Hunte, Jalar Holley, Sam Brooks, and Keontra Smith. 4 Hurricane freshmen did not appear vs. Bethune-Cookman, have not yet seen game action this year, and appear certain to redshirt at this point barring injuries ahead of them: Peyton Matocha, Adam ElGammal, Cameron Williams, and Avery Huff.

Here's a chart to keep track of how many games the UM freshmen still eligible for a redshirt have participated in so far in 2019 (data is from UM's own official participation charts). This thread will be updated each week to reflect the new games played for each player and will be pinned to the top of the board.

Great thread!!!


Doesn't the rule apply to second year players also? If so, it might makes sense to track those players too.

Of those that didn’t play, only JPayton and Keontra are extremely likely to not redshirt this year, in my opinion. One of the linebackers is a possibility also to burn the shirt, but if we’re lucky enough to stay 100% healthy there, I could see them both shirting.

Surprised Keontra Smith didn't get some action against UF. Guess they wanted to keep as much experience on the field as possible.

I like this thread...I'd also like an "early entree" thread with any changes/updates to that list in the recruiting section.

Should all play this year, can't afford to lose any of them to the portal due to the fact they didn't play.

You definitely redshirt the OL's & the QB, but the everyone else should play, even if it's limited reps, keep them engaged & make them feel like they're going to have a legit chance next year.

Lingard
Nesta
Traore
Ivey
Jennings
Bolden
Lingard will play this year, he already redshirted his Freshman year.

Nesta will be back this season & will play.

Traore I doubt it, could be needed for depth.

Under no circumstances will Ivey be redshirted, is needed for CB depth & will be CB3 all year.

Jennings depends on if he'll be out for whole season or not.

Bolden ain't shirting either, he'll play as soon as he gets clearedl

Yes it applies to everyone that hasn't previously redshirted. We tracked them all last year and after game 4, singled out the guys who hadn't yet hit the 4 game limit. I think that's the best way to do it instead of listing out the entire team

In 2019, the Canes have 16 true freshman. In the first game of the season, Miami only played 4 of them against the Florida Gators: Zion Nelson, Jahfari Harvey, Te'Cory Couch, and Christian Williams.

Any kids that you think play at UNC that have not played as of yet?

Although we were stout on the run I just don’t see the defensive tackles flash enough. We gotta be more in tuned with down and distance and subbing the right guys in. JON FORD AND BETHEL “AIN’T IT” ON LONG DOWN AND DISTANCE.

Shows how great Willis really was last year, but Nesta coming back will help a lot.
