A: “Jaz (Reynolds) and Kenny (Stills) and Trey Franks have been around for awhile. Kameel Jackson and Trey Metoyer are coming along trying to learn the offense, especially Trey, this being his first spring. They have to get more confident in running routes and things like that. But they're progressing. They'll do a good job for us and will be in the mix next year.”
Q: How has redshirt freshman QB Kendal Thompson looked?
A: “He's very athletic. He's very mobile. He's smaller than guys we've been used to around this place the last few years. We've had tall quarterbacks. But he's definitely an explosive quarterback who can move around and do things with his feet.”
Q: How much did Kameel Jackson playing last year help him?
A: “He's matured a little more as far as knowing the offense. Last year at times, he kind of second-guessed himself a little bit on how he wants to run a route and what his release would be. This year, he seems to be a little more confident. He just needs to get in the offense and buckle down on how to run routes.”
Q: What are your thoughts on the new tight ends?
A: “It's a little bit of a process teaching, helping those young guys, especially the young tight ends, with signals and things like that. Obviously they have a long way to go but they're picking it up.”
