True Freshman Playing Time Tracker

Updated January 1, 2019 by Karl Hess

We at HOOS Place are excited to present our True Freshman Playing Time Tracker beginning with the 2018 football season. Our aim is to track the number of true freshman playing throughout the football season and the number of games played by each as well. With the new redshirt rules in college football that allow a player to maintain their redshirt year by playing four or fewer games, there's an added importance in tracking the number of games played by the true freshman for those fans into the roster management aspect of college football. We also hope to quantify an individual player's contributions in the games they play as well. Hopefully our readers here at HOOS Place will find this new feature interesting and helpful for the 2018 UVA football season and beyond.

Our source of information will be the game participation reports published by the school itself and my own observations as the game participation reports are not always entirely accurate.

The data is current as of the South Carolina game on December 29, 2018.

    • 27 Tavares KellyWR/PR
    • 5-8 160 lbs. Fr 2018 Class 247 Comp: 3 Games: 13Scholarship
    • Updates!

      • South Carolina (Belk Bowl): Kelly had 1 carry (bubble screen) for -4 yards in the bowl game. The play seemed to have promise but the TE on the play missed his block, dooming Kelly for a loss.

        Kelly's season stats were as follows.

        Carries: 6 for 21 yards (11 yard long)

        Receptions: 10 for 121 yards (32 yard long)

        Punt Returns: 13 for 143 yards (43 yard long)

        Kick Returns: 3 for 50 yards (23 yard long)

        Tackles: 1 (assisted)

        Touchdowns: 0

      • Virginia Tech: Kelly had a rough night in his first Commonwealth Cup rivalry game. Late in the first quarter, Kelly was wide open on the VT side of the field awaiting a pass from Bryce Perkins. The ball was slightly underthrown but should have been an easy enough catch for a college wide receiver. Had Kelly caught the pass, he would have likely scored a touchdown. Instead the pass was dropped as he fell to the ground. 

        Later, on Kelly's lone touch of the game, a 1 yard carry per the official box score, he was violently tackled by VT's Ricky Walker via a textbook helmet to helmet targeting act. The officials on the field missed the infraction but the replay booth elected to review the play. Betraying all logic, the officials still declined to assess the targeting foul to the Hokies' Walker.

      • Georgia Tech: Kelly didn't figure into the game on offense. On special teams, Kelly and the punt return team had a day to forget. The Yellow Jackets were able to down one punt on the UVA 1 yard line. That resulted in a safety, injury to Bryce Perkins, a free kick return for a touchdown, and a 2 point coversion. On another GT punt, miscommunicatoin between Kelly and Darrius Bratton resulted in a Bratton muff of a punt when the ball allegedly bounced off of him. Georgia Tech was credited with the recovery and a review upheld the call on the field. GT scored a touchdown on the extra 4th quarter possession to take a 24 to 21 lead.

      • Liberty: In the win over Liberty, Kelly contributed 1 carry for 11 yards. The 11 rurshing yards were a game career high. The 11 yard carry was also a career long. For the season, Kelly now has 4 carries for 24 yards.

      • Pitt: Kelly was credited with the start against Pitt.

        He had 2 catches for 17 yards including a long of 13 yards. Kelly also had 2 punt returns for 15 yards including a long of 8 yards. He's also credited with 1 tackle in the game.

        On the season, Kelly is up to 10 catches for 121 yards.

      • North Carolina: Firmly established within the offense, Kelly had 1 carry for 1 yard against UNC. He also contributed 3 catches for 21 yards with a long of 11 yards. On special teams, Kelly chipped in 3 punt returns for 5 yards, with a long of 5 yards.

        For the season, Kelly has 8 receptions for 104 yards and 3 carries for 13 yards.

      • Duke: In the passing game, Kelly was targeted once by Bryce Perkins. The target came on 4th and 3 from the Duke 29 as Perkins took a shot at the touchdown to Kelly who had a step on his Duke defender. The ball was slightly underthrown allowing the Duke defender to knock the ball away and/or interfere with Kelly depending on your point of view.

        Kelly also returned one kick for ten yards. But his largest impact came once again in the punt return game. Kelly returned two punts for a total of 72 yards including a long of 43 yards. It's only a matter of time until he takes one back the distance.

      • Miami: Kelly had two punt returns for 8 yards against Miami with a long return of 8 yards. He was also targeted on a deep ball from Bryce Perkins during the 4th quarter.

      • NC State: Kelly played in his 5th game of the season against the Wolfpack thus negating his redshirt for the year. He finished the game with career highs in receptions (3) and receiving yards (57). He also added one punt return for no yards and one kick return for twenty three yards (also a career high). Kelly is becoming a larger part of the offense as the season progresses.

      • Louisville: Kelly ceded punt returner duties back to Chuck Davis for the Louisville game. But he had some nice plays from scrimmage on offense to make up for it. He and Bryce Perkins finally connected on a chunk play for a 25 yard reception down the middle of the field. Later, he was credited with an 8 yard rush on the next to last play of the game. Kelly threw jukes at two Louisville defenders that left them grasping for air.

        If Kelly plays in one more game this season, he will not be eligible for a redshirt this season. Expect him to play in most, if not all, games this year.

      • Ohio: Kelly had an eventful afternoon against Ohio. Taking over the punt returner duties from Chuck Davis, this happened...

        but unfortunately, so did this...

        Kelly also caught a pass for a 1 yard gain. He finished the day with 3 punt returns for 43 yards with a long of 42.

      • Indiana: Kelly had no touches but did get one target against the Hoosiers. Like against Richmond, Bryce Perkins tried to hit Kelly on a deep shot. A good play by the Indiana DB saved a probable touchdown.

      • Richmond: Kelly was an integral part of the gameplan against Richmond. He only had 1 carry for 4 yards but was constantly on the field. On his one carry, Kelly bounced off of a defender in the backfield after taking the option pitch from Bryce Perkins and showed the ability to run hard with the ball despite his size. Kelly was also the target of one deep ball in the first quarter. He beat his man initially but ended up playing defender by breaking up a probable interception as he and the Spiders' defender came to the ground.

    • 70 Bobby HaskinsOL
    • 6-7 280 lbs. Fr 2018 Class 247 Comp: 3 Games: 13Scholarship
    • Updates!

      • South Carolina (Belk Bowl): Haskins continued to see special teams duty but also made a late game appearance at LT.

      • Virginia Tech: Like recent weeks, Haskins on field action came on the field goal and extra point teams.

      • Georgia Tech: Haskins continues to see work on special teams as part of the field goal and extra point units.

      • Liberty: Like recent weeks, Haskins is is contributing on special teams for the Hoos. 

      • Pitt: Haskins continues to participate in special teams on the field goal unit. As the season has progressed and the OL rotation tightened, he's seen less time from scrimmage on the OL lately.

      • North Carolina: Haskins continues to see reserve snaps at OT. He also gets snaps on the extra point and field goal protection teams.

      • Duke: Haskins remains an important reserve at OT for the Hoos.

      • Miami: The rotation at OT tightened against Miami, and thus, Haskins didn't see much, if any, time from scrimmage. He was part of the field goal and extra point units so he did contribute positively to the Hoos' win.

      • NC State: Haskins played in his 5th game this season against NC State. He won't be able to redshirt this year but it appears that the staff is grooming him as a future fixture at OT. Haskins didn't earn a start but played almost the entire game at LT.

      • Louisville: Haskins was solidly in the rotation on the offensive line against Louisville. As the season has progressed, Haskins has steadily received increased playing time and he's performing well. He continues to look like a multi-year starter at tackle on the offensive line during the remainder of his career.

        If Haskins plays in one more game this season, he will not have the ability to redshirt this season. Expect Haskins to play in the remainder of the games this season.

      • Ohio: With a large first half lead and Rutgers grad transfer Marcus Applefield continuing to experience growing pains with the transition from guard to right tackle, Haskins received a good deal of playing time against Ohio. He logged first half snaps at RT for what I believe is the first time this season. Haskins has a real opportunity to be a three year starter at tackle for UVA if he shows well this season.

      • Indiana: To be honest, I didn't notice Haskins on the field. Chances are he played a role as one of the up men on the punt coverage unit or as a lineman for extra points.

      • Richmond: A big TE in high school, Haskins was recruited by UVA as an offensive lineman. He enrolled early in January which helped in the transition to a new position. The extra time in the program helped as Haskins logged reserve snaps on the OL at the end of the game.

    • 94 Aaron FaumuiDL
    • 6-1 280 lbs. Fr 2018 Class 247 Comp: 3 Games: 12Scholarship
    • Updates!

      • Virginia Tech: Faumui started at DE against the Hokies. He played major snaps during the game but did not record any stats.

      • Georgia Tech: Faumui was an important piece of the defensive line rotation against the Yellow Jackets. He added 1 solo tackle during the game.

      • Liberty: Faumui was in the defensive line rotation against Liberty. He likely gave up some playing time against the Flames so that Tommy Christ could acclimate himself better to live action as the Hoos need another body on the DL due to Mandy Alonso's injury. Faumui recorded no stats against Liberty.

      • Pitt: Faumui was part of the rotation on the DL for the Pitt game but recorded no stats.

      • North Carolina: Faumui started against UNC as part of a three man DL with Mandy Alonso and Eli Hanback. He chipped in 1 assisted tackle to push his total tackles to 10 on the season.

      • Duke: Faumui remains in the rotation on the defensive line. Against Duke, he picked up an assisted tackle. On the season, Faumui has 3 assited tackles and 2 solo tackles having played in every game this year.

      • Miami: Faumui started at DE for the second consecutive game. He played a ton against Miami as the Hoos played a lot of nickel and even some two down lineman sets. Faumui is established as the replacement for an injured Richard Burney.

        Against the Hurricanes, Faumui added an assited tackle and a QB hit.

      • NC State: Faumui's strong play against Louisville earned him a start against the Wolfpack as the Hoos opened the game in their nickel package. It was his first career start. Faumui picked up one solo tackle during the game, the second of his career.

        This was Faumui's 5th game of the season eliminating the possibility of a redshirt. Like Jordan Redmond, he's a big part of the rotation on the defensive line.

      • Louisville: Faumui earned his first career solo tackle against Louisville and he made it count! It was also his first career sack and caused a fumble that was recovered by the Hoos.

        Like his fellow freshman on the defensive line, Jordan Redmond, Faumui has played in all 4 UVA games this season. With one more game played, he won't be able to redshirt this season. And like Redmond, it's expected that Faumui will play in the remaining games on the schedule as he's become an integral part of the defensive line rotation.

      • Ohio: Faumui was part of the defensive line rotation against the Bobcats, especially in nickel sub-packages. He did not record any stats in the game but did receive ample playing time.

      • Indiana: Faumui was in the defensive line rotation throughout the game. He did not record any stats against the Hoosiers.

      • Richmond: Faumui received credit for one assisted tackle against Richmond. He was part of the defensive line rotation, featured heavily in two lineman sets along with Mandy Alonso.

    • 42 Noah TaylorOLB
    • 6-5 205 lbs. Fr 2018 Class 247 Comp: 3 Games: 10Scholarship
    • Updates!

      • South Carolina (Belk Bowl): Taylor didn't record any stats against the Gamecocks, but he did play some OLB at the end of the game. Taylor made most of his appearances during the season on special teams, but he looked active and athletic at the OLB spot to finish the Belk Bowl.

        Taylor recorded no stats during the season.

         

      • Virginia Tech: Taylor played against the Hokies but did not record any stats.

      • Liberty: Taylor continues to play on special teams for the Hoos. He recorded no stats against Liberty.

      • Pitt: Taylor again participated in special teams action against the Panthers. He recorded no stats.

      • North Carolina: Taylor isn't listed in the participation report, but he's clearly in the game during Tavares Kelly's 2nd quarter punt return that went for 5 yards.

        I suspect that the official scorer mistook Taylor's 42 for Lee Dudley's 62.

      • Miami: Taylor continues to log time on special teams. He got some run from scrimmage late in the game too as the Hoos got creative with their alignments and personnel against the Hurricanes. A few DL light - LB heavy formations allowed the Hoos to dig a bit deeper in the roster than usual and Taylor benifited. 

      • Louisville: Taylor continues to see action on special teams. Against Louisville, he logged some time on defense in the 4th quarter. Taylor did not record any defensive stats in the game.

        If Taylor plays in one more game this season, he will not be able to take a redshirt this year. Expect him to play in most, if not all, games this season.

      • Ohio: Taylor continues to play a role on UVA's special teams units.

      • Indiana: Taylor had a quiet night against the Hoosiers but he did participate in the kicking game on the return and coverage units.

      • Richmond: Taylor was a presence on special teams units. He didn't record a tackle but his heady play on Richmond's kickoff following their pick six of Bryce Perkins was a real highlight. Richmond tried to surprise the Hoos with an onside kick. Taylor had the presence of mind to call for a fair catch on the ball in the air and then field it cleanly in the face of the attacking Richmond kick cover unit. Taylor's play righted the ship after Perkins' interception and the Hoos were off and running from there.

    • 86 Ugo ObasiWR
    • 6-0 190 lbs. Fr 2018 Class 247 Comp: 3 Games: 10Scholarship
    • Updates!

      • Virginia Tech: Obasi played against the Hokies but recorded no stats in the game.

      • Georgia Tech: Obasi is in the wide receiver rotation for the Hoos but did not record any stats against GT.

      • Liberty: Obasi received some action at WR against Liberty but made no catches and saw no targets. 

      • North Carolina: Like his first year WR partner Billy Kemp, Obasi is now firmly entrenched in the WR rotation for UVA. He didn't record any stats against UNC but saw significant time on the field.

      • Duke: The invisible man continues to play and was involved in the action against Duke. Obasi received his first career target at WR although the play didn't count. During the second quarter, the Hoos had the ball on Duke's 41 when the Blue Devils jumped offside. Taking advantage of the free play, Perkins let one fly deep to Obasi who almost made a leaping catch. Had he come down with the ball, Obasi would have landed with the ball either on the half yard line or in the end zone depending on the spot. The Hoos ended up taking the five yards from the penalty, but it was great to see the first year get a shot in that situation. 

      • Miami: The invisible man played for the fifth time this season making him ineligible for a redshirt. Per Jamie Oakes, Obasi is playing both special teams and WR from scrimmage. He did not accumulate any stats against Miami.

      • NC State: Obasi continues to be the invisible man on the field for UVA. He's credited as playing in his 4th game of the season. One more appearance and he loses the ability to redshirt this year. The same as the Louisville game, I didn't notice him on the field.

      • Louisville: Obasi is credited with playing in the Louisville game by the official participation report. But, to be honest, I didn't notice him on the field. He did not record any stats against the Cards.

        Obasi can play in 1 more game before reaching the redshirt limit. Even with his limited playing time in the 3 games in which he's appeared, it seems like a sure bet that Obasi will exceed the 4 game limit this season.

      • Ohio: Obasi made a few cameos at WR against Ohio but did not record any stats. He's still awaiting his first career catch and target.

      • Richmond: Obasi made a cameo appearance during UVA's last offensive drive of the game. He did not accumulate any stats but he did get in a Richmond defender's grill near the pile after a play.

    • 80 Billy KempWR
    • 5-9 175 lbs. Fr 2018 Class 247 Comp: 3 Games: 8Scholarship
    • Updates!

      • South Carolina (Belk Bowl): Few players benefited from the extra practice time leading up to the bowl game more than Kemp. He took the punt returner duties from Tavares Kelly and Chuck Davis and saw increased playing time from scrimmage at WR. The transfer from Cole Blackman certainly helped with the latter, but it's certainly plausible that Kemp's emergence helped Blackman decide to move along. 

        At WR, Kemp saw 1 target but was unable to make the catch. At punt retuner, he returned 3 punts for 31 yards with a long of 11 yards.

        Kemp's stats for the season are as follows.

        Catches: 0

        Carries: 0

        Punt Returns: 3

        Punt Return Yards: 31

        Long: 11 yards

      • Virginia Tech: Kemp played but recorded no stats against Virginia Tech.

      • Georgia Tech: Kemp has started to earn time in the wide receiver rotation. Against the Yellow Jackets, Kemp received his first career target in the passing game.

      • Liberty: Kemp played in this 5th game of the season against Liberty. As a result, he will not be able to take a redshirt this season. He recorded no stats against the Flames.

      • North Carolina: Kemp has entered the rotation at WR but did not make a catch or receive a target against the Heels.

        With 4 games played, he's reached the point where he can no longer play this season without burning his redshirt.

      • Duke: Kemp appeared in his third game of the season against Duke. It marked the second consecutive week that Kemp has seen action. Whether on special teams or playing WR from scrimmage, Kemp did not accumulate any stats against Duke. 

      • Miami: Kemp appeared for the second time this season against Miami. He played from scrimmage as a WR in the offense but did not accumulate any stats.

      • Richmond: The Richmond native made a cameo appearance at the end of the Richmond game as a wide receiver despite being listed as a running back on the official roster. He did not accumulate any stats in the game.

    • 76 Jordan RedmondDL
    • 6-0 320 lbs. Fr 2018 Class 247 Comp: 3 Games: 8Scholarship
    • Updates!

      • South Carolina (Belk Bowl): With the UVA DL down to four available players, Redmond earned himself a start in the bowl game. His penetration was critical to stopping the Gamecocks on 4th and short on the game's opening drive. He didn't record any stats in the game, but his play on that 4th down helped set the tone for the afternoon.

        For the season, Redmond's stats were as follows.

        Tackles (solo): 5

        Tackles (assisted): 5

        Tackles (total): 10

        Tackles For Loss: 2

        Sacks: 0.5

      • Liberty: Redmond was part of the defensive line rotation against the Flames. He picked up 1 assisted tackle in the game. For the season, Jordan now has 10 tackles (5 solo, 5 assisted). He also has 3 tackles for loss and 0.5 sacks on the season.

      • Pitt: After having not played since the NC State game, Redmond is credited with starting against Pitt. He responded with 2 assited tackles.

        For the season, Redmond has 9 total tackles (5 solo, 4 assisted).

      • NC State: Like against Indiana, Redmond didn't make an appearance during the first half of the game. He played considerable snaps during the second half, however. He recorded no stats against the Wolfpack but did play in his 5th game. Redmond won't be able to redshirt this season, but he's a sometime starter and big part of the rotation on the defensive line.

      • Louisville: Redmond got his third career start against the Cards. He tallied a career high 4 tackles (3 solo), 1.5 tackles for loss, and 0.5 sacks (a career first). Redmond is looking increasingly comfortable with his role in the middle of the Wahoos defensive line.

        Redmond cannot play another game and maintain a redshirt this season but he's entrenched as a starter on the defensive line. Expect him to play in the remaining games this year.

      • Ohio: Redmond logged his second start of the season (Richmond, Ohio). He also picked up 1 tackle in the game to increase his tackle total to 3 on the season. He was the only true freshman to start the game for the Hoos.

      • Indiana: Redmond relinquished his starting spot this game as Eli Hanback got the call in the middle. It appeared that Redmond didn't play at all during the first half, but he was solidly in the mix during the second half. Redmond picked up his first two career tackles against Indiana including sharing a tackle for loss.

      • Richmond: The big man from Florida started the season opener as the man in the middle of the Hoos' three man defensive line. Redmond certainly looks the part. And while he did not receive credit for any tackles throughout the game, he was seen collapsing the middle of Richmond's line on several occasions.

    • 7 Wayne TaulapapaTB

    • Updates!

      • South Carolina (Belk Bowl): Taulapapa continued to play on special teams supporting the kick coverage teams. He recorded no stats against South Carolina.

        Taulapapa's stats on the season are as follows.

        Tackles (Solo): 1

        Tackles (Assisted): 0

        Tackles (Total): 1

      • Virginia Tech: Taulapapa played on special teams against the Hokies but did not record any stats.

      • Georgia Tech: Taulapapa continued to play on special teams against the Yellow Jackets but did not record any stats.

      • Liberty: Taulapapa played in his 5th game of the season against Liberty. As a result, he'll not be eligible for a redshirt this season. Against Liberty, his action came on special teams. He did not record any stats against the Flames.

      • Pitt: Taulapapa continues to log time on kick coverage units on special teams. He made a solo tackle against Pitt for his first career tackle.

        The Pitt game was Taulapapa's fourth game this season. If he plays in another game, he will not be able to count this season as a redshirt.

      • North Carolina: Taulapapa has yet to see time from scrimmage but he remains part of the Hoos' special teams units.

      • Duke: Taulapapa appeared in special teams play against Duke on the coverage units. He's now played in consecutive weeks, receiving his first career action the prior week against Miami. Taulapapa did not contribute any stats against Duke.

        However, he did switch numbers. As Taulapapa has not officially received a number through the Hoos' number awarding ceremony, he's wearing temporary numbers each week. At first, he was number 75 but that was officially taken by walkon running back Webster Hill during the week prior to Duke. Taulapapa switched to number 7 which is not being used by the injured Chris Moore at the moment.

      • Miami: Taulapapa made his collegiate debut against Miami in special teams action. He was number 75 with no name on the back. As he's not had an official jersey awarded to him yet, this could be a one off appearance. If he does win a jersey number this season, he'll likely pick a different number.

        Taulapapa did not accumulate any stats against Miamis.

    • 6-2 210 lbs. Fr 2018 Class 247 Comp: 4 Games: 4Scholarship
    • Updates!

      • South Carolina (Belk Bowl): Armstrong appeared for one play during the Belk Bowl. Despite it being his fourth game of the season, he'll be able to claim a redshirt for the year. 

        His one play in the Belk Bowl was a trick play. He was in at QB while Bryce Perkins was lined up as a receiver. Armstrong took the snap, lateraled the ball to Perkins who completed a pass to Dubois. Unfortunately for the Hoos, Dubois would fumble the ball away on the play after a nice gain.

        Armstrong's stats on the season are as follows.

        Completions: 2

        Attempts: 5

        Passing Yards: 62

        Long: 56 yards

        Touchdowns: 1

        Interceptions: 0

        Rushing Attempts: 9

        Rushing Yards: 74

        Long: 34 yards

        Rushing Touchdowns: 0

      • Georgia Tech: Armstong played one series against Georgia Tech in relief of an injured Bryce Perkins. For a time, it looked like Armstrong might be the UVA starting QB for the remainder of the year. It's still not clear how Perkins recovered so quickly from what looked to be a serious injury.

        Armstrong's one series was an unqualified success. He ran two times for 13 yards including a long of 11 yards. He also completed 1 of 2 passes for 56 yards. The completion was a 56 yard touchdown pass, the first of his career, to Joe Reed.

      • Louisville: Armstrong entered the Louisville game during the 2nd quarter for an injured Bryce Perkins as the collective UVA football fanbase held its breath. It was the Perkins injury that had everyone about to lose their collective mind, and not Armstrong's presence on the field. Armstrong then unleashed this 34 yard run to get the Hoos into the redzone.

        There were some sighs of relief but things were still tense until Perkins entered the game again. Still, Armstrong performed well under the spotlight. Besides the highlight run, he nearly scored his first TD pass to Hasise Dubois on a slant but the Louisville DB knocked the ball away at the last second. The Hoos cashed in the drive with a field goal instead.

        Armstrong relieved Perkins again during the 4th quarter as the Hoos had already put away the Cardinals. He looked good in mop up duty as well with runs of 4 and 7 yards.

        For the day, Armstrong finished with 50 yards rushing on 4 carries. He was 0 for 1 passing.

        Armstrong certainly seems like the QB of the future for UVA. I'm sure the coaches would love to maintain his redshirt but it's clear that he's the guy should another QB be needed in an emergency situation. Circumstances will dictate whether he exceeds the 4 game threshold this season.

      • Richmond: Another January enrollee that took advantage of the additional time in the program, Armstrong took over for Bryce Perkins late in the 4th quarter with the game's outcome determined. Armstrong connected on his first collegiate pass. He finished the game 1 for 2 passing for 6 yards. He also contributed 11 yards rushing on 3 carries.

      • Georgia Tech: Jones is still awaiting his first crack at returning a kick, but he continues to be back there with Joe Reed.

        With 4 games played now, Jones will lose his ability to redshirt if he places in another game this season.

      • Liberty: For the third consecutive game, Jones was the second man back on kick returns along with Joe Reed. He's still waiting for his first opportunity to return a kick.

      • Pitt: Jones continued to join Joe Reed as one of the two kick returners on the kick return team. He did not get a chance at his first career kick return, however. 

      • North Carolina: Jones made his debut against UNC. He was the second kick returner along with Joe Reed during the game. The Hoos have some talented option at kick returner, so that's quite a testament to Jones' ability and work ethic.

      • NC State: Pearson assumed the placekicker duties from AJ Mejia against Louisville and the change stuck against the Wolfpack. Pearson went 3 for 3 on extra point attempts and provided a no drama afternoon for Wahoo fans. He did not attempt a field goal in the game.

      • Louisville: Pearson made his college debut against Louisville in relief of starting placekicker AJ Mejia. Pearson had a perfect day on the field has he made both of his field goal attempts and all three of his extra point attempts. Pearson's field goals were from 24 and 28 yards so he's yet to face a challenging kick.

        A redshirt for Pearson seems unlikely now as Bronco noted that Pearson is now the starting placekicker for the Hoos.

      • North Carolina: The walkon defensive back made his career debut against UNC. I believe that King played on special teams units against the Tar Heels.
