Admittedly, I don’t follow the Georgia Tech program that closely, but surely this isn’t correct:
In looking for another theme on the depth chart released Saturday by Tech officials, senior wide receiver Kevin Cone figures to be the only non-scholarship player to start. [Emphasis added.]
How many top-20 teams do you figure start walk-ons (not counting special teams, of course)?
At least he sounds qualified for the job.
… At 6-feet 2, he looks more like departed wide receiver Demaryius Thomas — bigger.
“I was about 200 pounds last year, and I’m about 210 now,” Cone said. “I just wanted to get a little bigger so I can be more aggressive. Last year, I was having trouble getting off press [coverage] and staying on my man [while blocking].”
