Incoming freshmen have much to go through when they first arrive on campus. From getting settled into their dorms, setting their academic schedules, getting comfortable with the playbook and fighting homesickness, incoming freshmen have a long adjustment checklist.
For some true freshmen this season, they can add "fill big shoes" to their to do list. Florida has a legacy recruit who is expected to help replace a 1,000-yard rusher while Michigan is bringing in a running back it needs to help replace Denard Robinson's rushing production.
Tennessee lost two outstanding receivers, and a big receiver prospect who chose the Volunteers over North Carolina is expected to immediately post big numbers. Auburn will be hoping two young pass-rushers can replace the production of a good defensive end it lost to the NFL.
