weekend series article by dnj prep writer
MTSU welcomed back leading scorer Dontrell Shuler this weekend, but injuries kept the Blue Raiders shorthanded in losses to Western Kentucky.
Could it be that both Jackson and Fussell are candidates for a redshirt year? (As for Jackson; I hate that a member of last years C-USA Freshman team hasn't progressed to where he is an integral part of the team as a Soph. - has covid hindered player development that much?)I never did hear anything on Tyson Jackson. Hope he’s ok.
to my knowledge, only in football was the extra year givenAren't redshirts virtually irrelevant this year? I was thinking the NCAA has basically made this a free year of eligibility for all.
In another thread I had brought up concerns about Jackson, a conf freshman honoree, essentially doing little more than riding the pine. To me, that is a waste of a year worth of good experience where he was thrown into a baptism of fire. With that experience and the raw tools he has, he should be developing into a leader on the team that is also all-conf by next year. Short of an unbeknownst injury, this is a failing on the coach's part.
Then again, I'm not really seeing the development of any players on this team.
