Jimbo Fisher said the team is very healthy entering spring.
Ira Denson is not with the team right now and is "just going to school right now." Fisher said his status will be evaluated later, and he wants him to do well academically.
New JUCO offensive lineman Kareem Are has lost 15 pounds, per Fisher. We noted he came in heavy. He was not working out Thursday.
Kain Daub won't be eligible for the spring, but the freshman linebacker will be good to go for summer and fall. Fisher isn't happy about it, but it's a clearinghouse issue.
Fisher singled out P.J. Williams, Markuss Eligwe, all of the running backs, Terrance Smith, Tyler Hunter, Kevin Haplea, Josue Matias and Nick O'Leary as standing out. Fisher said Mario Pender is doing great in school, too. Fisher said Desmond Hollin looks great at defensive tackle, and that Eddie Goldman needs to get in better shape.
Fisher also praised fullback Freddie Stevenson.
