Not really sure about this as shouldn't the coaches be able to show the young guys how to play the position, since it's their job and all.....

Programs get to be great because the upperclassmen help the underclassmen along.  That's one reason why it takes a few years to build a college program.  This is a tiny bit of a head start.

I can see that angle too but i think the coaches should be doing the job they are bringing this young guy in to do.  Maybe this is more so a statement about the upperclassmen that are currently playing that same position since they have to bring this guy in to more than likely play the position since he knows it so well.

You don't have to be able to play the position to coach it.....

Gidrey started out as a fullback, but Skip rarely used one. He more often went with a big tailback in the fullback position.

After our TE went to the NFL, Gidrey had to make the switch. He didn't put up big numbers, but he's a solid player, with great hands.

As a FB, he caught the 1st TD in the 2008 CUSA championship game. Its about 2 seconds into this short crappy video.

It doesn't say anything about the current upperclassmen at that position, since the position didn't really exist under the old coaching staff.  And it doesn't just help players at the H-Back position.  If this is a bright player that fully understands the offense, he can potentially help translate lots of details to other players...including the QBs.

he is a mass comm graduate, but it seems like the coaches could teach guys the plays, too.

Sooo you give a scholly to a guy you don't plan to play when you have some very talented guys that would be available for more than one year interested in USF?  Seems like Skip could have waited on this one to me.

    With the climate going on in NCAA athletics, you’re either moving forward at a hard pace or you’re not. I think what intrigued me the most is they’re very determined to become a big player nationally.
