Freshman Monday: Tuesday Edition

Buckeye CommentarySenior Analyst IOctober 14, 2008

Among those top 25 teams, only 12 true freshmen are starting, and in the Big Ten, the two Buckeyes are among just eight true freshmen currently starting. Among the top 10 players from the Rivals.com rankings for this class, Alabama's Julio Jones and Georgia's A.J. Green are both starting at receiver, probably the easiest position for freshmen, for top-25 teams.

But only one other team in the top 25 or in the conference is starting a freshmen center and none is starting a true freshmen quarterback. Teams can go young -- 2-3 Baylor is starting freshman Robert Griffin at quarterback and Michigan is starting three freshmen on its 109th ranked offense -- but it's harder to win young.
