Some players don't want to redshirt because they can't stand sitting on the sidelines watching their team on the field. This is not the case with UConn running back Max DeLorenzo as he says "I know there are three guys ahead of me right now" and "if I have to take my time and redshirt I'm more than happy to do that."
DeLorenzo would do well to wait until D.J. Shoemate leaves Storrs as he could challenge for some serious playing time in 2012. DeLorenzo could team up with speedster Deshon Foxx next season to provide a nice combo for the Huskies.
