Countdown to Kickoff: 5 Days
Aug. 27, 2008
FRESNO, Calif. - In a conference where there is a lot of pressure placed on the secondary, No. 25 ranked Fresno State will have some talent and depth in 2008.
Owens is a solid lockdown cover corner, while Harris is the quarterback and hardest hitter of the group. Haynes brings tremendous athletic ability and size (6-1, 205).
The open corner position, vacated by senior Damon Jenkins, will be filled by Sharrod Davis or A.J. Jefferson. Both players saw action last season and have the athletic ability and speed to perform well.
Senior safety Jake Jorde, coming off his first career interception against Georgia Tech, and senior cornerback Will Harding, are both experienced players who will add depth and leadership to the secondary.
"Join the State - Fresno State!" - The first Big Ten team will travel to the Valley on September 13th as the No. 25 `Dogs take on Wisconsin in the home opener at 7:30 pm.
