Name: Andrew Russell
Weight: 190 lbs.
High school: Victor (NY) Victor
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #43
Last year: I did not rank Russell. He did not play in any games.
TTB Rating: N/A
Russell has been on campus for a couple years and has not participated in any games so far. I did not rank him previously, partly because he’s a safety on a team that recruited a ton of safeties over a couple recruiting classes. While the focus on recruiting safeties has perhaps petered out a little bit, there are still a lot of those guys on the roster.
Russell’s only real chance of getting on the field is playing on special teams. At 6’2″ and 190 lbs., Russell is a former standout lacrosse player (he was on Michigan’s lacrosse team for two years) and a decent athlete. He does not have superb speed, but his length and aggression are respectable. I do not expect him to see the field this fall.
Prediction: Backup safety and special teamer
