    Deontez Thompson, RB: https://richmondspiders.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3008
    Both have announced that they are doing grad transfers to WIU for their final year of eligibility. Just wondering if these guys look like they might jump right into starting roles, or if they're more likely "depth" guys (we're pretty thin at both positions).
    Thompson's best season by far was 2016 when he went from #3 RB at the start of the Season to #1 in just a couple games due to injuries to a couple other RBs. He ended up with 1000+ yard rushing. 2017 he was a preseason 1st Team All Conference RB, but was bothered with injuries and ran for a total of about 300 yards. Last season I heard his production was way down again but I didn't pay much attention to Richmond in 2018 - UNH didn't play them and they were eliminated from playoff contention pretty early in the season.

    not a bad perk, for the third straight year the Elon football junior class takes a spring break to Costa Rica on a service mission and also partake of what Costa Rica has in store like rainforests and extreme natural habitat. not badd

    If your team is thin at these positions do not be surprised if these guys compete hard to be your starters, especially Thompson. IMHO he is better than stats show if he stays healthy.

    Have a lot of respect for Johnson. He gave up his redshirt to QB team in playoffs the year Lauletta when down in season's final game and got two wins before Spiders went down hard to Eastern Washington, then redshirted again the next year, so the guy basically ran the scout team for two years for his team waiting on Lauletta to leave, then got hurt as the starter about three games in and backup kept the job when Johnson returned. All our QBs had tough years last year even with a good receiving corps(even after Brisett lose for season), throwing 18 picks if I remember the stat correctly, behind a patched Oline (our one senior played all three positins during the year to keep it patched together), so I will give Johnson a little bit of slack.

    They were both Rocco recruits so I have no idea if they were worried about playing time behind Huesman's recruits or not, as Spiders will have some youngers players at each position. My guess is a new style offense than what they were recruited for might have been part of the decisions and who knows how personalities works in to these decisions.

    I have nothing bad to say about either of these guys.

    Henderson is really going to push Kehoe, he gives the Hens some mojo at the QB position
    He does, but Nova LBs used him for target practice a few times. Needs to learn when to duck & chuck.
