It's too early to say with absolutely certainty that wide receivers Jermaine Lindsey and David Harvey will not play in 2007.
The university has not said anything about their eligibility. However, a big indication of the future is that neither has participated during the offseason program. Harvey has been AWOL since the spring. Lindsey hasn't been around since June.
So where does that leave the team in terms of receivers? From what I'm hearing, juniors Stephon Fuqua and Brandon Williams are having strong summers. They appear to be the No. 2 and 3 receivers respectively, unless a true freshman can earn playing time (cough, Vince Hill).
As far as the quarterback situation goes, Carlton Jackson probably still has the advantage. I'm starting to remember the feeling in the stands during CJ's debut at the Rubber Bowl. A tangible buzz filled the air. That feeling was on the sidelines, too, according to a player I spoke with.
This summer, many true freshman have participated in the offseason program. One is quarterback Matt Rodgers. From what I hear, this guy is a real talent. He possesses a great arm and surprising maturity and intelligence for a freshman.
