Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline relays that Middle Tennessee CB Jeremy Cutrer ran the 40-yard dash in the mid-to-high 4.4's during Friday's pro day.

According to Pauline, a few stopwatches had Cutrer clocking in at 4.50 seconds. He met with the Giants and Titans following his workout. This past season, the Middle Tennessee defender recorded 63 tackles (4.0 for loss) and a trio of interceptions. He also picked off three passes during his junior campaign with the Blue Raiders. Pauline sees him as a UDFA when all is said and done.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Middle Tennessee RB I'Tavius Mathers ran the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds during Friday's pro day.

That 40-yard dash time would have been one of the best among running backs had it been turned in at the NFL Scouting Combine. In addition, the 5-foot-11, 203-pound Mathers logged a healthy 21 reps in the bench press, a less impressive 32-inch vertical jump and a broad jump of 10-foot-2. Mathers was a jack-of-all-trades this past season, rushing for 1,561 yards (6.7 YPC) and 17 touchdowns while catching 66 passes for 633 yards and three additional scores. In a deep class of backs, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline views the Middle Tennessee standout as a likely undrafted free agent.

Middle Tennessee redshirt junior QB Brent Stockstill will miss spring practices after undergoing surgery on his left (throwing) shoulder.

Stockstill was dogged by a right shoulder injury last season. Now, his throwing shoulder is acting up. Stockstill threw for 3,233 yards with a 31/7 TD/INT ratio across 10 games played last year. He already owns school marks with 61 touchdown passes, 14 300-yard passing games, two 400-yard passing games and 303.3 passing yards per game.

Former Missouri redshirt junior DE Walter Brady transferred to Middle Tennessee State.

He actually did so last September, but MTSU just officially announced the news on Wednesday. Brady sat out last season but was enrolled in classes at MTSU. This coming fall, he’ll be eligible as a redshirt junior. As a redshirt frosh in 2015, the 6-foot-3, 268-pound defensive end led all freshman nationally with seven sacks. "He's shown ability to power through guys, even in the SEC with all of those big offensive linemen," sophomore offensive lineman Chandler Brewer said. "He can move really well, he has great hands and great feet, and he controls his body really well. He'll definitely bring it for us this year on the defensive side."

Middle Tennessee hired former Maryland DC Scott Shafer to serve in the same capacity.

Shafer has held several high-profile jobs in recent years. He served as head coach for Syracuse from 2013-2014, then linked up with Maryland as defensive coordinator in 2015. Last April, he resigned from that position, citing personal reasons. Shafer did not coach during the 2016 season. With the Blue Raiders, he steps in for the recently terminated Tyrone Nix. He vows that under his watchful eye, MTSU "will put a physical, attacking, multiple defense on the field that will excel in fundamentals and tackling."

Middle Tennessee RB I'Tavius Mathers will play in Saturday's East-West Shrine Game.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound former Ole Miss Rebel really only contributed in a significant at the FBS level for one season, but boy did he make it count. In 2016, Mathers became the first RB in NCAA history to rush for more than 1,500 yards, catch 60 passes and record more than 500 yards receiving in the same season.

Middle Tennessee will not retain DC Tyrone Nix or WR coach Kez McCorvey.

Nix had been on staff with the Blue Raiders since 2012. His defense proved exceedingly porous in 2016, surrendering 35.77 points on average. The poison cherry on top of this sludge sundae came when MTSU surrendered 52 points to Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve. For his part, McCorvey joined Middle Tennessee last winter.

Middle Tennessee freshman WR Ty Lee caught 10 passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 52-35 loss to Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl.

Lee turned in a lovely freshman campaign for the Blue Raiders. The 5-foot-9, 155-pounder's work against Hawaii represented his second 100-yard receiving effort of the season. Also, his second game with two touchdown grabs. For the season as a whole, Lee caught 63 passes for 699 yards and nine scores. He figures to form one half of a lethal receiving duo with stud wideout Richie James in 2017.

Middle Tennessee sophomore WR Richie James caught eight passes for 162 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 52-35 loss to Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl.

James found the end zone from 51 yards out early in the first quarter to boost the Blue Raiders to a 14-0 advantage, but Hawaii would come back to tie the contest by the close of the quarter before taking the lead on a two-yard run by QB Dru Brown with 11:43 remaining in the first half. The Warriors would not trail again. For his part, the 5-foot-9, 170-pound James has developed into one of the most statistically prolific wideouts in the country, finishing off his 2016 campaign with a sweet 105-1625-12 receiving line across 13 games played. He has topped 1,300 yards in each of his first two collegiate seasons.

Middle Tennessee redshirt sophomore QB Brent Stockstill (collarbone) completed 30-of-51 passes for 432 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 52-35 loss to Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl.

Stockstill made a successful recovery from a broken collarbone which sidelined him for three contests in November, but his statistical light wasn't enough to earn the Blue Raiders a win on Christmas Eve. Loss aside, the 6-foot, 192-pounder notched his fourth game this season of at least four passing touchdowns. He may well have challenged 40 touchdown passes for the year as a whole had he not suffered the collarbone injury, but as is, finishes the 2016 campaign having thrown for 3,233 yards with a 31/7 TD/INT ratio across 10 games played.

Middle Tennessee redshirt sophomore QB Brent Stockstill (collarbone) has been medically-cleared to play in Saturday's Hawaii Bowl.

An early Christmas gift for Blue Raider fans the whole world wide. Stockstill missed the final three games of the regular season after breaking his collarbone against UTSA on November 5. The 6-foot, 192-pound redshirt sophomore has aced his recovery, though, and his return to action greatly boosts Middle Tennessee's potential for offensive glory come their Christmas Eve showdown with Hawaii later on Saturday.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 12:52:00 PM

Middle Tennessee HC Rick Stockstill said that redshirt sophomore QB Brent Stockstill (collarbone) is a game-time decision for Saturday's Hawaii Bowl.

While his father/coach would only deem him a game-time decision, Stockstill the Younger has already deemed himself ready to rock and/or roll. Said the 6-foot, 192-pounder, "First of all I am going to play. So that is exciting and it's been a good week of preparation." Stockstill was initially sidelined by a broken collarbone sustained against UTSA on November 5. The Hawaii Bowl (fittingly, to be played against Hawaii) will kick off at 8:00 EST on Christmas Eve.

Middle Tennessee redshirt sophomore QB Brent Stockstill (collarbone) underwent a bone scan on Thursday.

Stockstill will find out the results of the bone scan over the weekend. That exam should help shed some light on his status for Christmas Eve's Hawaii Bowl against, well, Hawaii. The 6-foot, 192-pounder was sidelined in early November due to a broken collarbone suffered against UTSA. He underwent surgery to repair that injury and has been ramping up his practice efforts of late. On Friday, he indicated that he has been practicing in pads.

Middle Tennessee redshirt sophomore QB Brent Stockstill (collarbone) indicated that he has been practicing as though he will start in the Hawaii Bowl.

Stockstill suffered a broken collarbone against UTSA at the beginning of November and subsequently underwent surgery. Somewhat remarkably, he said that he began throwing again just a week after that surgery. The 6-foot, 192-pound gunslinger participated in the team's first pre-bowl practice, too. All of these are positive signs for a return against Hawaii on Christmas Eve, but until Stockstill receives medical clearance, his status should be considered up-in-the-air.
