Fifth-year DJ Ivey was next to take the podium. Much embattled at times, Ivey has the skillset to shine however the lights haven’t fully come on during games. Ivey is somewhat cognizant that there were issues that plagued the defense a year ago. Hopefully new defensive backs coach Jahmile Addae can maximize the most of the 6-1, 195 pound Ivey.
“I’m not too worried about last year, we’re going to keep that in the past, moving forward.” -DJ Ivey
“We are looking pretty good. We are just out here working, trying to get better each and every day. Have to keep working.” -DJ Ivey
Coach Cristobal overseeing his first training camp practice
Finally, fifth-year senior and Miami native DJ Scaife, Jr. took the podium. The offensive line unit now has the benefit of having a former offensive line coach in Mario Cristobal as its new proverbial CEO. Except Cristobal didn’t have a background in sales, he had a background in trench-enomics. This unit stands to improve the most in terms of technique and attitude.
“We’re working. I like the aggressiveness that we’ve got. We’re going in the right direction.” DJ Scaife, JR.
