DeKALB – Last fall, true freshman cornerback Devin Haney went from not taking snaps against Iowa in Week 1 to being thrust into a starting spot in the Boca Raton Bowl against UAB.
This spring, Haney is feeling much more comfortable taking practice repetitions with the first team, knowing fully well what the expectations placed upon him are.
“Last year, we had to step up, so now it’s ... we’re like literally the guys. It’s only us,” Haney said. “Now, there’s not really any pressure there because we already had to step up last season.”
