“Other than nose tackle Aymiel Fleming, everyone else from last year’s main playing rotation returns for 2020. The team has also fortified its ranks through the transfer portal by bringing in former West Virginia defensive back JoVanni Stewart. The hope for the Cougars is that last year’s lumps lead to rapid improvement from a deep, experienced defense.”
I have not been keeping close tabs but I thought there were several key pieces added to the picture via the transfer portal and not just one player.
You may be thinking of juco transfers.
You’re right, we had 5 transfers but one has already left the program. Not sure how many are eligible in 2020 though.
While 2021 only has 7 commits, they are rated higher than the 2020 commits…FWIW
Thanks. I was thinking we had more than that transfer in in 2019 and had to sit a season. I know the biggest of those left the program but I still thought there were some expected positives to the defensive side of the ball from the 2019 transfers. I was surprised that this was not referenced in the write up.
