Just days after South Florida was contemplating a redshirt year for running back Lindsey Lamar, Rick Stroud says things have changed. He reports, "USF coach Skip Holtz says they have decided to pull the redshirt off RB Lindsey Lamar."
On Sunday, Jamie DeVriend of Voodoo Five explored the possibility that Lamar would, in fact, spend the year as a redshirt.
As of then, Coach Holtz had said,
"Having four running backs with Lindsey not in the mix ...I think Lindsey is a weapon, he's fast, he can run. A little bit rusty right now at running back. He hadn't played there in two years. I don't think he's an every-down back back there yet. I think he can truly benefit from a redshirt year. ... He would rather do that, which I totally respect."
Lamar was the 2010 Big East special teams player of the year.
