Reviewing the Redshirts | WR Dominique Wheeler

Fans tend to forget about the players that redshirted the previous year. This is an attempt to remind you about those players.

Doug Pensinger

PLAYER: Dominique Wheeler

POSITION: Wide Receiver
HEIGHT: 6’1"
HIGH SCHOOL: Crockett (Crockett, TX)

There's no denying Wheeler's talents on the football field. Absolutely. He might be the most talented player of the group from last year, but I worry about Wheeler. Perhaps completey without a reason, but I think that Wheeler is a bit of a free spirit, and there are times that this sort of attitude is really beneficial and then there are other times where it can be a detriment. It's largely dependent on where that energy is focused. Wheeler's Texas Tech profile has him about the same size as in high school.

So I'm not sure what to do with Wheeler other than in my gut, I think that Wheeler is going to be on the bench one more year and hone his craft. I also think the same thing about Reginald Davis for the most part. I don't really see Wheeler working his way into the receiver rotation unless there is some sort of injury and I don't see him working his way into the return game just yet. Or maybe I don't see anyone wrestling that job away from Jakeem Grant or DeAndre Washington. Like I said at the beginning, I think that Wheeler is supremely talented, but he may not be quite ready for prime time just yet.
