Interesting that Gilzene is listed on the two deep in the Spring prospectus but missing from the roster. Must of have been a last minute change. http://www.stonybrookathletics.com/documents/2018/3/20/2018_Spring_Prospectus.pdf


I think the Bolden is going to be the hardest player two replace from last year's team and WR is the position to watch. Washington, Anderson, and Trent all have experience and have made some notable plays. There's also 6 freshmen, counting Seba Nekhet who burned his redshirt season in the fal, looking to make a impression. Hopefully a couple of these guys have big seasons.

Isaiah White is one of the most coachable and great person you will ever meet, his primary job for 2018 will be one of the leaders of special teams but will do whatever is necessary to help this team

With Spring Football winding down this is what I'm hearing;

Isaiah White will probably be redshirted so that they will have a senior presence at RB for the 2019 season

Sometime over the next month 2 or 3 transfers could be coming on board

So far around 100 rising seniors have been on campus and a huge number will be on campus for the Spring game next Saturday

I was correct the new WR Coach has been here and he will be officially announced in May

SBU is also bringing on another defensive assistant to assist one of the position Coaches and he has also been on board

There has been only one major injury this Spring and he will be ready for when camp opens in August

I am not usually critical but this whole Isiah White situation boggles my mind. They shouldve redshirted him 2 yrs ago when they could have or they could have redshirted Gowins 2 yrs ago due to the fact that he was coming off ankle sugery. White is a stud athlete who has been wasted the last couple yrs with that failed LB experiment. Gowins was hampered that first yr and could have used the yr to get healthy. White was good enough to step right in as a true freshman but they couldnt figure the redshirt thing out until now. I know he was an all conference special teamer but 2 yrs wasted imo. The RB position doesnt need senior leadership, thats just code word for " we really f***d that one up". At least White will finally get a real shot at RB.

A few weeks ago I mentioned that Mitchell Wright a Punter from Australia was the first commit for the 2019 recruiting class well I was wrong he was added to the 2018 roster today as a sophomore for the 2018 season. In addition Kameron Pickett a RB from the University of Buffalo also was added to the 2018 roster today.

Coach P added his 3rd transfer today when CeQuan Jefferson a DB with 1 year of eligibility was added to the roster that makes a total of 3 transfers so far

Can you post the other 2 transfers, Campi..

I thought I read that JMU and JSU had the most in the FCS. I think 7 for JMU, as of now...

I read a little on Jefferson yesterday.  He had amazingly sterling credentials coming out of high school and prep school, but never seemed to gel (or, perhaps, get a real opportunity) at Temple, even though he lettered there for 4 years.  Can't figure out why.  He's going to do a graduate year at SBU, so I don't think it's academics related.  So, I have to believe that he could be a tremendous boost to the secondary in filling the holes left by guys like Beverette and Cooper.

Ward Melville Football is going to be great again this year. They have some strong boys on the line. My son is on the left and is in the front of the line in the tug of war challenge where they beat Floyd last night in the Bigg Ugly lineman challenge in Farmingdale..

Hammer not sure if you know this but Lindenhurst and Northport have dropped down to Division II

I think it will be Floyd (which is loaded) then either Melville or Connetquot but I think the Melville Coach has this program in a very good place and they should contend year in and year out.

On Fathers Day Mike Devlin who coaches for the Houston Texans has his linemen camp over at Connetquot HS and he brings many of the Texan players it's a great opportunity for linemen

The two other transfers that you asked about are Mitchell Wright a Punter from Australia who has 3 years of eligibility and will take over for Marc once he graduates and the other player will be Kenny Pickett from Buffalo who is a RB and also has 3 years of eligibility remaining. For 2018 the rotation will be; Liotine, Gowins and Pickett.

Marshall Ellick WR came in earlier from Temple and also has one year remaining.

I still think Coach P wants to bring in a linemen

I knew about Lindenhurst and Northport dropping down, but i did not hear about the lineman camp at Connetquot HS, Ill have to ask my son about it. Coach Boultrek usually sends the parents information on up and coming football camps and competitions. I didnt see this one... Thanks for the heads up ....
