#46 Lamar Atkins
Class: RS Freshman
Hometown: Miami, Fla
Thoughts: Lamar came into the program last season with a little less hype than some of the other freshman linebackers. Lamar's brother, Keith Brown, had a solid season last year and Lamar hopes to join the party. As of the spring, Lamar was listed three deep at the Mike linebacker position, but I think he can jump into a legitimate backup role before we snap the ball. P Brown will maintain the start but I think we'll be flying guys in an out regularly with the multiple blitz packages Charlie and Vance like to run. The one thing people sometimes over look with these solid recruiting classes are the talented players who may not get a chance to immediately contribute. I think a couple years from now we'll all know Atkins name.
Sweet Tweet: Couldn't locate a twitter account for Lamar. I hope to find s'more of them for the upcoming players. See what I did there? Since we're talking about S'mores now, hopefully you've all partaken in the deliciousness that is a S'more Blizzard from DQ. If not, stop what you're doing and drive there immediately. I just wish I could get a chuckle from the drive-thru every time I say "you're killing me smalls" after I order it. They're really starting to crush my spirit.
It's the little things.
#46 DeAngelo Thomas
Class: RS Junior
Position: Running Back
Hometown: Louisville, KY (Product of Butler High School)
Thoughts: DeAngelo is another local kid hailing from the southend of Louisville. Thomas joins the program as a walk-on this year after taking a couple years off. We obviously have some depth at RB, but Thomas can be very dependable practice player and reliable contributor when called upon. With the health of a few key RB's still in question Thomas could be very valuable when Fall Camp starts up here very soon.
Sweet Tweet: No tweets for DeAngelo. But since he comes from the southend and I'm feeling a little homesick and I talked about food above.... I'll leave you with this....
Come for the seafood, stay for the scenery.
