2014 Second Year Player Profiles

Second Year Profiles: Donte Wilkins

+

As a true freshman, Wilkins started 4 games, and saw action in 9. He was very good against Georgia Tech, forcing a fumble and recording 7 tackles. He also had 0.5 sacks against Clemson. He's still...

Second Year Profiles: Max Valles

+

In a Jon Tenuta coached defense, LBs are often asked to generate QB pressure. Max Valles was the only LB on the team with more than 1.5 sacks. And he was a true freshman, getting by on raw...

Second Year Profiles: Keeon Johnson

4

After initially being a redshirt candidate, Johnson forced his way onto the field with strong play in practice. The struggles of the upperclass WRs may have helped. He stepped in and made an...

Second Year Profiles: Eric Smith

3

One on 3 true freshmen to play on the OL last year, Smith was the only one who played extended snaps. In fact, he started 8 games and played very well. He was named to several freshman All-American...

Second Year Profiles: Jack McDonald

+

McDonald will probably spend some time this year playing special teams. It would take an avalanche of injuries, though, for him to see time on the OL though. He's just not ready. Next year,...

Second Year Profiles: Eric Tetlow

+

Tetlow played as a true freshman, but barely. He saw action in 5 games, for a total of just over 100 plays. That isn't near enough to justify burning his redshirt, unless he's going to play a large...

Second Year Profiles: Jack English

+

English has already been listed at 3 different positions in his brief UVA career. And none of those positions match the position he played the most in HS. Let's hope he doesn't end up constantly...

Second Year Profiles: George Adeosun

4

A late grab for the Hoos last year on signing day, Adeosun was a big get at a position of need. Sadly, his football career may be over after two knee surgeries in under a year. If he returns, the...

Second Year Profiles: Micah Kiser

+

Kiser was a highly touted recruit out of a strong HS program in Baltimore. He needed to get bigger, so he spent a redshirt year in the weight room. He's gotten bigger, kept up his speed, and now is...

Second Year Profiles: Zach Bradshaw

+

In what seems like another horrendous decision by the coaching staff, Zach Bradshaw played in final 5 games of the season after a wrist injury kept him out previously. Isn't it likely that somebody...

Second Year Profiles: Connor Wingo-Reeves

+

Of the 12 first years who played last season, probably the most surprising was Connor Wingo-Reeves. Not because he wasn't ready, but because he didn't even have a position when training camp...

Second Year Profiles: LaChaston Smith

2

Every once in a while, a coach makes such an egregious mistake that it is unforgivable. The decision to play LaChaston Smith for a few plays at the end of last year's VMI game was one such decision.

Second Year Profiles: Malcolm Cook

3

Cook wasn't as highly touted as Quin Blanding, but was still in a simular situation last year. A highly touted safety trying to break into a deep and talented secondary. Cook redshirted last year,...

Second Year Profiles: Brendan Marshall

2

Brendan Marshall gets no love from UVA fans. We deride David Watford, tout Greyson Lambert, and profess our love for Corwin Cutler. We're indifferent about Matt Johns. But Marshall doesn't even get...

Second Year Profiles: Andre Levrone

+

A couple of underclassmen WRs really impressed last year. Meanwhile, Andre Levrone was redshirting and recovering from an injury. This year, Levrone looks to join his young teammates in leading the...

Second Year Profiles: Kirk Garner

3

After a pre-season full of hype, Kirk Garner redshirted during his freshman season. Was this the correct call? Why did he change his jersey number? Meanwhile, his classmate, Tim Harris, started 7...

Second Year Profiles: Tim Harris

+

Tim Harris was forced into starting duty after Tra Nicholson suffered a season ending injury. As the season went on, Harris looked more comfortable on the field and ended up having a solid first...

Second Year Profiles: Smoke

2

A 5-star RB coming to Charlottesville? Yes! Smoke came in with tons of hype. He was going to change our entire offensive philosophy. It didn't really work out that way, not in his freshman year...

Second Year Profiles: Kirk Garner

1

We begin our profiles of last year's first-year football players with CB Kirk Garner. Garner redshirted because of the Hoos' tremendous CB depth. That depth still exists, so Garner likely spends...
