Tracking the true freshmen

I figured, based on some of the questions I’ve gotten, it’s probably worth making a separate entry to track the true freshmen who played Saturday.
There were 13 true freshmen who played Saturday and now, barring a significant injury early in the season, will use a year of eligibility this year. Those 13 are:running back Jesse Callier, safety Sean Parker, linebackers Cooper Pelleur, Garret Gilliland and Princeton Fuimaono, defensive end Hau’oli Jamora, receiver Kevin Smith, cornerback Greg Ducre, tight end Michael Hartvigson, defensive tackle Sione Potoa’e, offensive tackle Erik Kohler, safety Taz Stevenson and fullback Zach Fogerson.
Steve Sarkisian also said Monday that guard Colin Porter will likely play Saturday against Syracuse.
So that would be 14 true frosh playing this season, a school record — 12 played in 2008 (and 10 last year).
That leaves 13 true freshmen as likely to redshirt this year — offensive tackle James Atoe, linebacker Victor Burnett, receiver DiAndre Campbell, offensive lineman Mike Criste, running back Deontae Cooper, offensive tackle Micah Hatchie, defensive end Andrew Hudson, linebacker Jamaal Kearse, defensive tackle Lawrence Lagafuaina, quarterback Nick Montana, offensive tackle Ben Riva, defensive end Josh Shirley, offensive lineman Colin Tanigawa,
UW signed 30 players last February, but two have delayed their enrollment — safety John Timu and defensive end Brent Williams; and two didn’t get eligible — linebacker Chris Young and linebacker Darius Waters — and UW then added Shirley late.
One thing to remember is that there are no papers to file to redshirt players, no deadline. So any of the players currently on the redshirt track could still play at any moment this year if needed (the obvious scenario being that if a spate of injuries hit a specific position).
But for now, this seems to be who is playing and who isn’t this year.
