On the cornerback position, via SI.com
“We’re going to be young at that position, but very talented. We do have some guys that have transferred in that will help us. There might be another guy (smiles) that might pop up here in the next couple days, we’ll see. That’s a position where I feel like we have more depth.”
While he says almost the same thing about the cornerbacks that he did about the offensive weapons, his voice gave the impression that there’s still some work to do with this squad.
We all know this has been the Spartans’ biggest issue in Mel Tucker’s short tenure, and the fact that it sounds like it’s going to be another year being at the bottom of the Big Ten in pass yards allowing is frustrating.
Now, a loaded defensive front seven should make the defensive backfield’s job a little easier, but there’s nothing more backbreaking that giving up a long completion or a third-and-long because the cornerback couldn’t keep up. I do like that he said that there might be another transfer added to the team because that means he’s never satisfied with the roster. He’s always looking to improve the weaknesses for the betterment of the team.
