The True Freshman Report

The Washington Huskies signed one of their top rated recruiting classes in school history last offseason, and that talent is starting to see the field.

During this past year, the NCAA announced a new redshirt rule that would change the landscape of college football as we know it.

All Division I college football players are now able to play in up to four games per season, without using a season of eligibility.

For the Huskies, the timing of this new rule couldn’t have come at a better time for the program.  With a talented freshman recruiting class just recently added to the roster, it has allowed the coaches to preview the futures of these skilled newcomers.

Once again this season, the Huskies have suffered a ton of injuries, which has resulted in freshman players being inserted into the lineups quicker than normal.

Most of the freshman players who have played so far, have been thrown in on special teams to get their feet wet at the collegiate level.  Others have been inserted into the lineup at their true positions due to depth issues at certain position groups.

The new rule has benefited the Huskies so far, and it allows the fans to get a glimpse at the newbies during game action and not just at open practices.

Now that the bye week is officially here, we take a look at the “True Freshman” players on the roster and who has contributed this season up until this point.
