Name: Christian Bartholomew
185 lbs.
High school:
Galesburg (MI) Kalamazoo Central
Wide receiver
Redshirt freshman
Jersey number:
Last year:
I ranked Bartholomew #107 and said he would redshirt (LINK). He redshirted.
TTB Rating:

Bartholomew had two 1,000-yard receiving seasons in high school – as a sophomore and junior – before moving to quarterback as a senior. Though he played at a small school, those are still impressive numbers. Last year I did not expect much from him because he was a freshman walk-on.

I still like Bartholomew’s talent, but he continues to hang around here in the 100’s because of his status as a walk-on. I don’t think Josh Gattis is quite as likely to play walk-on receivers as former coaches like Pep Hamilton. There might be an opportunity if there are injuries or as Bartholomew gets older, but I think he’s a practice squad guy for now.

Prediction: Backup wide receiver
