I actually hope Cronk is one of the players that they ask to come back again next year.Eventually, I think Cronk starts at tackle opposite AJ & Kallenberger starts at guard.
Just gonna take awhile for Cronk to learn beyond the 'just block the guy in front of you' assignment scheme @ IU.
He seems like a fine athlete, he just played stiff. It could be he was just young, but I wasn’t optimistic.Dillon Doyle transferring was a blessing. While he is young with experience, Jacobs and Campbell have much more potential and are long term going to be much better.
Doyle would have been a Bo Bower
We also went from Amani Hooker, who was really fucking good and could play 4-5 different positions, to a true freshman.Belton caught some hate in chats and posts last year, but I think he is going to be great as well. Got better every game as a true freshman and you can tell Parker loves him.
Doyle had been going through the strength program since he was a middle schooler. He was probably ahead if where most players are at in the same class. No one is saying he's bad, but I am saying his ceiling is much lower than other options.
I have no doubt that he might have ended up as one of the typical smart, physical players we’ve seen play that spot over the years. But he simply did not posses an elite athletic profile. That might have been a non-issue against half the teams we play...but that type of stuff shows up on tape 3 to 4 times a year in key situations versus the better teams on the schedule
