2019 Season Countdown: #57 Sammy Faustin

2019 Season Countdown: #57 Sammy Faustin

Name: Sammy Faustin
187 lbs.
High school:
Naples (FL) Naples
Redshirt freshman
Jersey number:
Last year:
I ranked Faustin #93 and said he would redshirt (LINK). He redshirted.
TTB Rating:

Faustin was raw coming into 2018. He had some injury issues in high school and played cornerback, when he was almost certainly bound for safety. That made him a virtual lock to redshirt.

Now Faustin is in a bit of an odd spot. The coaches reportedly think highly of him, but there are already players entrenched or expected to contribute ahead of him. Josh Metellus, Brad Hawkins, and J’Marick Woods are established players ahead of him, while Jaylen Kelly-Powell has a little playing time under his belt and 5-star Daxton Hill is expected to jump ahead as soon as the practice pads go on. Some of those players will start to filter away after 2019 (Metellus to the NFL, Hawkins/Hill/Woods perhaps to Viper), but right now Faustin will have to bide his time as a little used backup.

Prediction: Backup safety, special teamer

    I like that Sammy Faustin has 5 years to develop. He seems to be a sharp person. He might get his chance in his 4th and 5th years to be a big help to the team. And if all goes well, with no serious injuries, I think he’s going to make the pros.

    A regular role on special teams would be a significant step forward for Faustin. Too much depth ahead of him at safety for there to be any chance at a meaningful role on D,… unless he can play CB which sounds like not real likely.
