Running back Meggett playing his best football

Coach Ralph Friedgen was not planning on holding a scrimmage Saturday, but he said what the heck and conducted one anyway. There will be another one late afternoon today, which will be closed to the media. Reporters got to see the last 20 minutes or so of Saturday’s affair.

Friedgen said the defense is ahead of the offense right now. Sophomore Demetrius Hartsfield played well. The defensive line is quicker and more athletic than last season, Friedgen said.

But there were some highlights offensively. Coaches believe the corps of wide outs is deeper than last season. Junior Quintin McCree, who hauled in a great catch but stepped out of bounds in the end zone, could be one to emerge.

Junior running back Davin Meggett is playing the best football of his career, Friedgen said. Yoga really helped Meggett become more flexible. He has always been compact and strong. He had a great run in a goal-line situation late in the scrimmage.

“He is a lot more confident than he has been,” Friedgen said. “He has always been a strong kid. I don’t think he played with his eyes and read things well. He kind of predetermined things. He is being decisive with his cuts now.”
