Mailbag July 10: Did Gutierrez And Vinci Leave Program?

by Categorized: Mailbag Tagged: , Date:

Q: Long time no talk Dez.  Hope all is well and your recovery is near complete now.  Looked at the roster that the school just released and see a couple of names missing: Vinci and Gutierrez.  Did they leave the program? Chris, CT

A: How’s it going my friend? You are correct. Recovery is near complete thanks for asking. You’re also correct about Vinci and Gutierrez. You can add Jonathan Louis as well. I can’t say I’m surprised about that one. He didn’t really play last season. I don’t think he fit in the plans here. Gutierrez I’m hearing is an academic-related issue and Vinci I’m hearing is transferring to play someplace else; don’t know where. I think he would have been a good fullback here but I do know for a fact the coaches really do like Jazzmar Clax, also a redshirt freshman, also from New Jersey, at that spot…. It’s good hearing from you.
