FS Keenon Ward

He asked in January to play receiver and was turned down. Since then, he’s dedicated himself to becoming the best safety he can be, with positive results.

RB Justin Stockton

Running backs coach Mike Jinks says Stockton has “elite” speed — and the Red Raiders plan to put it to use in a hurry.

CB Tevin Madison

He already surprised, just by going from presumed redshirt candidate to challenging for a key role right away. Anything else is gravy.

WR D.J. Polite-Bray

Eric Ward’s replacement brings a different skill set, but he’ll be a well-known name soon.

CB Jah’Shawn Johnson

Another freshman who, in August, took advantage of the unsettled cornerback situation.
