During the course of fall practice multiple players have shined, who weren’t here in the spring. Here at House of Sparky, we wanted to see who you the fans are the most excited to see come game time of the newcomers.
Freshman linebacker Merlin Robertson
The first few practices Robertson worked on and off with the first and second teams. Since then, he’s emerged as the only linebacker so far that’s a lock to start day one against UTSA. The outside linebacker from Gardena, Calif. is larger than most true freshman, coming in at 6-foot-3, 235 pounds.
Junior wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk
With the injuries to receivers Frank Darby and Terrell Chatman during the fall, Aiyuk has become the third starter with N’Keal Harry and Kyle Williams. The JUCO transfer from Sierra College has electric speed that shows in his shifty runs on screen passes. Expect Aiyuk to also contribute in the return game.
Redshirt sophomore cornerback Terin Adams
Adams has only worked with the first team during the team’s first scrimmage with Chase Lucas’ absence. Matched up with N’Keal Harry that night Adams played him very well. He also has picked off multiple passes and broke up a handful more in the fall. The City College of San Francisco transfer seems to be ready if any injury occurs to Lucas or Kobe Williams.
Redshirt sophomore running back Isaiah Floyd
Also from the City College of San Francisco, Floyd is now the number two back behind Eno Benjamin. Much like Aiyuk he’ll also help in the return game due to his speed. He’ll also most likely be the team’s passing catching back as he’s been used all fall.
