That’s what he was wanting to play. We’ll see how this shakes out.

He was kind of surprised by the WR offer so he’s sorting it all out. Sounds like he might visit.

Richard, do we need him at WR?

You evaluate your needs as the season goes on and I guess they believe they do. He would be nice to have in the red zone for sure. Obviously could play OLB if WR doesn’t work out.

OK, thanks. Just wondering if he trusts the staff enough to believe they will give him a legitimate shot at WR before trying to move him to linebacker.

I would be more skeptical if they said it right after he decommitted. Bielema and the staff usually do what they say. They gave Mitchell a chance at QB.

Best players available.
