CommentsDavid Long returns as starter. The competition for playing time as the 5th and 6th backs in coverage will be fierce with Jaylen Kelly-Powell, Sammy Faustin, Myles Sims, Gemon and German Green amongst the candidates. Who else will we add? Vincent Gray?

Peoples-Jones, Donovan 9 PR 1 Fr. 6'2" 199 Starter n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Crawford, Kekoa 1 PR 2 So. 6'2" 187 Backup 4.62 n/a n/a n/a n/a

McDoom, Eddie 13 PR 2 So. 6'0" 181 Backup n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Comments: Donovan Peoples-Jones returns as starter. It is obvious we have another great returner for the next 4 years in the mold of Jabril Peppers, Steve Breaston, Anthony Carter and others. Eddie McDoom, David Long, and Kekoa Crawford are other capable punt returners. Both Khaleke Hudson, Josh Metellus, and Josh Uche could be great punt rushers. Nate Schoenle is an excellent flyer or gunner on punt coverage, and was elected Captain of Special Teams for Cincinnati. Benjamin St. Juste is our other gunner.
