Stampeding The 2014 USF Football Roster - #35 K Emilio Nadelman

Do the Bulls have another standout kicker waiting in the wings?

gousfbulls.com

As the season draws closer and closer, we're catching up on some of the players we missed earlier in the countdown.

#35 K Emilio Nadelman
Redshirt Freshman, 5'6", 173 lbs.

Stats in 2013: Nadelman redshirted and did not play.

Spot on Pre-Season Depth Chart: Second string kicker behind Marvin Kloss.

How did he come to USF: From Miami Central High, where he was under the tutelage of current USF running back coach Telly Lockette. He originally committed to FIU, but decommitted after just a week and gave his word to the Bulls shortly after.

Recruiting Rankings: Emilio was given two stars by both Rivals and 247.

Projected Playing Time in 2014: He probably won't play unless Kloss gets injured, so let's hope we don't see him this year. Still, it looks like there could be a very bright future ahead for Emilio. Word out of spring practice said that he was giving Kloss a run for his money, and Coach T did state during the spring that there was competition at every position apart from punter, so hopefully we've got another good kicker waiting in the wings (Kicker has been a rare position of strength for USF lately, hasn't it? I didn't think I could love a player more than Maikon Bonani until Marvin Kloss came along).

Fun Fact: At 5'6", Emilio is the shortest player on the Bulls' roster.
