Shon Carson to focus on football this spring and will not be with the baseball team.

Good for him. Good for the football team. He showed flashes of greatness late in the season, if he can improve he could be a great speed back to accompany Davis/Williams bruising style. Along with Wilds as well of course. His outlook professionally in football doesn't look too good, but who would have thought Ellington would be getting drafted a few years ago.

Good. We don't really need him on the baseball team and he looked pretty bad at the plate last year. Football only is the best path for him in my opinion

He seems to only run in a straight line, its like he doesnt know how to cutback.

Dont get me wrong i love a back that goes north-south, but you shouldnt go straight in a line.

I agree he should cutback more often, but as a speed back, I would rather him have the problem of running in a straight line more so than east to west like Jarvis Giles did when he was here. He started juking before he even got near contact on the line of scrimmage.

Definitely need him more on the football team than the baseball team. Had he concentrated solely on baseball from the beginning I'm sure he would've been a great player but especially now with D. Scott going to UT we're gonna need him for the next couple years.

Is he really going to Tennessee? I thought he was still 80% us?

He's tweeted in the past few hours the rumors that he's committing to UT are untrue, and he's still undecided.

He definitely gets a full head of steam and leans in before hitting the line.

During team timings, Carson ran under 4.45. He was a 4.4 guy coming out of high school before the knee injury.

Probably another reason why Scott is headed to Tennessee

Jaw dropped when I seen Williams 40 time at 4.37.
