WKU football updates roster

14 07 2011

WKU updated its 2011 football roster on its web site recently, placing accurate heights and weights – as well as numbers – to its incoming freshmen.

A couple of additional notes:

– Former Ballard Memorial quarterback Alex Mallory is listed on the roster and will walk-on this season.

– Tight end Tristan Jones is no longer a member of the club, neither is receiver Maurice Bullard. Jones was lost for the season during the Kentucky game last year with a knee injury, and would have been far down on the depth chart this season with the addition of Ryan Wallace, emergence of Demetrius Coley and signing of three prep tight ends. Bullard, meanwhile, did not catch a pass last season.

– Defensive back Cam Thomas, who was rated as a Rivals.com three-star signee with the 2010 class, was ineligible last season – but stayed on campus to work his grades out. He now has everything in order, and is on the roster as a redshirt freshman for this season.

– WKU has also added freshman kicker Jesse Roy (Charlotte, N.C.) and freshman offensive lineman Tyler Sweetland (St. Petersburg, Fla.) to the roster.

The rest of the numbers, heights, weights for the freshmen class: (Note – incoming offensive lineman Cliff Burns was actually a JC transfer and will be a junior this season. He’ll wear No. 68. He’s listed at 6-8, 335 pounds)

So what is the deal with Dexter Haynes. Is he a part of the team? Is he suspended? Will he play? etc…

You’ve got some good timing, don’t you!?

I was actually inquiring about this again earlier today. I didn’t want to respond until I had something official – but I just blogged it. Haynes is still on the team, his suspension has been lifted, he’ll be on the field when WKU opens practice Aug. 6.
