Millwood cornerback and Texas commitment Josh Turner

"If Texas asked me to redshirt, that wouldn't change a thing for me. Texas is a great program, and I would respect that that's what they thought was best. But I think I'll have a shot to play."

Norman North defensive end and Stanford commitment Daniel Davis

"Depth at your position is hand in hand with playing time. When you look at a college you should really see how deep they are at your position so you can see if it's a good fit."

Gary Pinkel, Missouri

"I tell my players that it has a lot to do with physical maturity, whether you can play or not. It has a lot to do with depth at the position whether you can play or not. It has to do a lot with can you learn the complexity of whatever position you are at, some positions are more difficult to learn than others."
