Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . Cade McNamara. I wasn’t quite ready after the Wisconsin game, but now I’m ready. Quarterback Cade McNamara should be the starter going forward. He went 27/36 for 260 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions, and he also ran in 1 touchdown. This happened after starter Joe Milton was 5/12 for 89 yards.

Hit the jump for more.

South Orange (NJ) Choate Rosemary Hall

Safety

Redshirt junior
Jersey number:

Last year:
I ranked Reynolds #56 and said he would be a backup safety and special teamer (LINK). He made 5 tackles and 1 tackle for loss.
TTB Rating:
N/A

Reynolds had his most significant year yet in 2019. He was named Defensive Scout Team Player of the Year in 2018, and last year he made 5 tackles and 1 tackle for loss while playing special teams and a little bit of defense.

Overall, it’s tough to get much playing time as a walk-on, let alone as a defensive back. At the defensive back position, it’s been since the early 2010’s when Jordan Kovacs manned one of the safety positions. (Jordan Glasgow didn’t really emerge until he moved to linebacker.) With Josh Metellus and Lavert Hill having moved on to the NFL, there’s a possibility that Reynolds might work his way into the two-deep.

For whatever it’s worth, in 2019 Reynolds made more tackles than Sammy Faustin, played in more games than Faustin and Gemon Green, recorded stats – unlike German Green – and exceeded any season Jaylen Kelly-Powell ever had in a Wolverines uniform.

How much does all that mean for Reynolds going into 2020? It’s very hard to say. But I think he might be a dark horse candidate for playing time while people are busy getting excited about R.J. Moten, Jordan Morant, Makari Paige, and Darion Green-Warren.

Prediction: Backup safety, special teamer
