Seth Dooley (#43, 6-4, 237, Fr.): I didn’t expect Seth Dooley to come in quite as big as he’s listed, but as you can see from the picture at right, he’s every bit of 237 and maybe more.  I thought he might begin his career at tight end because of the need at that position, but for now he’s at defensive end.  He’ll redshirt, but he definitely looks the part.

Brandon Facyson (#31, 6-2, 183, Fr.): Facyson is doing well for a true freshman corner, yet I’m still not convinced he is a natural corner.  It’s simply too early to tell at this point.  He got burned badly on a pump and go yesterday, but overall he’s doing
