  • Jahleel Billingsley - TE (3)
  • Braylen Ingraham - DL (1)

Offense: 5 (1 starting)

Defense: 10 (3 starting)


Landon Dickerson - RG (5)

If it’s okay with everyone, I think I’m just going to stop including Dickerson. He can’t redshirt again, and he’s on the only non-freshman newcomer. He’s also firmly entrenched in the two deep and will play every game, barring an injury.

15 freshmen played against Ole Miss.

10 freshmen have now played in all five games, which means they cannot redshirt. Three players are sitting at four games: Will Reichard, Keilan Robinson, and King Mwikuta.

Reichard missed the game with an injury and will almost definitely burn his redshirt when he’s healthy. Mwikuta did not play in the opener but has played in every game since. Robinson sat against Southern Miss, but he played over Jerome Ford against Ole Miss.

We also saw a brand new face out there! Defensive lineman Braylen Ingraham made his debut. He made the most of his limited snaps, getting on the stat sheet with one (solo) tackle.

With Ingraham playing, 20 of the 26 member (not counting Trey Sanders) Class of 2019 have now played in at least one game, with 18 of them playing in at least two games.

Here’s where the freshmen who didn’t play against Ole Miss stand.

Will Reichard - K (4)

Scooby Carter - DB (3)

Pierce Quick - OL (3)

Taulia Tagovailoa - QB (2)

Tanner Bowles - OL (1)
