Despite Ron Turner telling us Monday that senior wide receiver Willis Wright, redshirt sophomore running back Jakhari Gore and redshirt freshman safety Adrian Jenkins wouldn't be joining the team until at least the first day of classes, Aug. 26, it appears Gore's practicing this morning although not in any pads.
I'm still not sure Gore's academically eligible. But I did hear Wednesday night Gore was being told to come to camp. There might've been a mistake made with grade forgiveness that, if rectified, would push Gore closer to eligibility.
In team drills, Shane Coleman took the first reps with the first team offense as they worked on the running game without the wideouts and the cornerbacks.
Also joining the team Thursday morning was former Nortthwestern High defensive tackle Imarjaye Albury, who transferred from West Virginia.
The same injured players working on the side this morning as the last few days -- offensive lineman Yousif Khoury, safety Jordan Davis, freshman linebacker Jordan Gibbs.
