Redshirt sophomore players who might declare

Question is what players are RS sophomores who might declare early for the draft..?
I'm hoping for either devante Adams or jalen strong to and we draft 1 of them..
I like Davante Adams too. One of my favorite WR prospect. Big fast reminds me of Dez Bryant/Josh Gordon

I think Adams might be more likely to bounce than Strong due to the change in QB.

A redshirt = 1 year
Sophomore = 2 year

Therefore a RS sophomore = 3 years

The NCAA has rule that says athletes can set out their first year of a competitive sport without it counting against their scholarship eligibility. This allows high school students to take advantage of the strength and conditioning programs and perfect the technique they'll need to be successful in their sport. It also gives them time to adjust to college without the stress of competing. Any athlete that chooses to set out his 1st year is deemed a red shirt. This red shirt is broken the moment you enter a game. If a red shirt is broken that year counts against your eligibility. Football players have 4 years of eligibility but the red shirt allows them to stretch it out for another year essentially spending 5 years under an athletic scholarship. Hope I got that right anyone can feel free to set me straight otherwise.

This seems correct to me. Crabtree was a RS Sophomore when he came out. There are also cases where a player starts the year playing and gets a season-ending injury early in the season and is then granted a RS year. (In rare cases a player may be provided with a 6th year of eligibility for a medical RS.) That is the only situation where someone can play during a season and still have it counted as a RS year.
