Three or less:
Pretty self-explanatory, these players will appear in three games or less for the Jackets in 2019. Safely securing themselves as redshirt freshmen for the 2020 season.
LB Chico Bennett Jr:
One of the higher rated recruits of the class, we feel that Bennett will see playing time in at least two games for the Jackets this season. There isn’t much wiggle room for playing time at linebacker in 2019 but Bennett’s high upside may just be enough to work his way into a few games.
WR Nazir Burnett:
The Jackets are going to really take a look at what they have at wide receiver this year so, at one point or another, I think all wide receivers that the Jackets have will find their selves into a game. Burnett has a chance to be a nice steal for the Jackets, but with 10 other wide receivers on the roster, it could be tight trying to find room for everyone to play.

CB Jordan Huff
We have a feeling Huff could become an elite cornerback for the Yellow Jackets over his time on The Flats but he may not be ready just yet to take on playing a full season with the Jackets. Huff will get into his fair share of games but they’ll keep his redshirt.
CB Kenan Johnson
Like Huff, Johnson has a rather high upside but in a crowded secondary, playing time will be hard to come by. Johnson should find his way into at least two or three games but beyond that, it’s hard to say if he will see more in 2019.
WR Zach Owens
Owens has a great deal of potential and was another part of the 2019 wide receiver haul. That being said, like Burnett, he could use some time to develop and it will be important for the Jackets to build some depth going forward at the position. With that, Owens may see some playing time but he’ll redshirt without a doubt.
S Jeremiah Smith
Smith has a bright future on The Flats but with five safeties in front of him on the roster, it’s hard to see him sneak into a game beyond one or two games. That being said, when we get a better idea of the Jackets roster and depth chart for 2019, we’ll get a better read on Smith and the rest of these freshmen.
DE Sylvian Youndjouen
Youndjouen is a raw prospect but his size and athleticism are off the charts and the Jackets will be creative with how they play Youndjouen in 2019 and beyond. It wouldn’t be shocking if he plays in a game or two just to see if he can flash any of the potential that he holds.
