Holtz plans to redshirt a HUGE part of Bulls’ future

If the USF football team was preparing for a hot-dog eating contest instead of Skip Holtz’s first season, freshman offensive linemen Quinterrius Eatmon, Jake Kaufman and Tony Kibler are three players Holtz would line up against anybody.
Eatmon (6-6, 340), Kaufman (6-9, 362) and Kibler (6-4, 355) are a huge part—we can’t emphasize HUGE enough here—of the program’s future as members of Holtz’s first recruiting class.
But with an experienced offensive line returning despite the loss of the unit’s most experienced player—Zach Hermann, who had 26 career starts before leaving the program in the spring due to a lingering neck injury—Holtz said he expects to redshirt the three new linemen.
“I think the three freshman linemen have obviously got a long way to go from a physical standpoint,’’ Holtz said Friday. “They are all 340 pounds, but it’s not about being 340 pounds in college. It’s about carrying your weight and trying to be lean, not necessarily big.
“They are probably all three going to be redshirted right now as I’m looking at this just where they are with their condition. But I think they are all three good takes. They are all athletic and they all have a chance to be really good players down the road.’’
Check back in later for another practice report. The Bulls are scheduled to take the field around 3:30 and finish around 6 p.m.
