Make sure you read MaconDawg’s initial write-up of what he heard at the Pigskin Preview. What he was told about Isaiah Crowell’s introduction into the summer work out program is similar to what I’ve heard:
… The incoming freshman “Dream Team” was a big topic of conversation, to the point that it seemed veterans Christian Robinson and Cordy Glenn were frankly a little tired of talking about them. When asked about Isaiah Crowell specifically, Christian Robinson displayed a sly smile and said that while he’d just done 7-on-7 drills with several of the freshmen, Crowell was not able to participate because he “had a hard morning” in conditioning and “got a little sick.” I took from this that our all-world tailback may have been a little too chill during the spring and is not yet quite ready for primetime. I don’t know if that’s reason to worry just yet, but it’s certainly not the same as saying “He fell right in like he’s been here for years.”
I agree that it’s not a matter of concern this early. I think Mr. Crowell is learning that Coach Tereshinski doesn’t play favorites, though.
(By the way, while we’re doing the workout scuttlebutt, word is that John Jenkins arrived in very good shape and as strong as advertised. Maybe we’ll hear something about that from MaconDawg in an upcoming installment.)
