Expect to see De'Andre Jasper on offense this week in addition to kickoff returns. Punt returns? True freshmen often make coaches nervous.

Click the link below to check out highlights of Bradenton Manatee defensive back Willie Smith, who verbally committed last week to FIU. ESPN's and Scout.com have him at two stars. He led Manatee in interceptions last season.
Louisiana-Lafayette opened a 6-point favorite and is up to 6.5 at most sports books.
In answer to your questions about DeMarkus Perkins and James Louis: Perkins has played in each game this season on special teams and taken some defensive snaps.
Louis has off-the-field issues, not all of them have to do with Camp Mitch. Remember what I said on another blog about recruits? You never know what might kneecap their careers.
Expect the FIU-Louisville game on Dec. 19 to be a 7 p.m. game. Television isn't set yet.
