Football Offseason Update: Part I

Just a few updates to whet the appetite for fall…

  • Sophomore phenom running back Mike Boone will be wearing #5 this year as a throwback to his high school days at Baker County High School in Miami, FL (instead of #27 his freshman year).

  • Deionte Buckley is back on the team this year after transferring back from Indiana State. The former running back / fullback is officially listed on the roster as a tight end. However, I am not aware of many 5’ 9” 201 lb. tight ends in college football. Given the extreme depth at the running back position at UC, this may just be a way to list him as a potential receiver in 5-wide or other scenarios. This is especially true since Tuberville’s offensive schemes at UC have not utilized the fullback position unlike his former SEC glory days.
  • Redshirt freshman Hayden Moore looks to be the backup behind Gunner Kiel this year.
