Coy Cronk Transferring

Recommended Posts

??????????

Another plugged in person on Twitter mentioned twice things for entering the transfer portal: possibly leaving for the NFL and potential position change if he were to come back.

Who knows if that’s true, but just all around puzzling.

My guess is that he is seeing if any big time programs have any interest (Alabama, Clemson, LSU etc) and if not he’ll just enter the NFL most likely. Just a guess and could be WAY off.

Wouldn’t think any big time schools would him. Wouldn’t consider him to be good enough to make it in the NFL either. But he wasn’t even that great to begin with and the line didn’t fall off any when he went down. Stayed the same really.

I don’t understand this notion that he would have to change positions if he came back. Why? He’s light years ahead of Bedford and Caleb Jones has been an absolute liability at right tackle so put Bedford there and let Jones further develop/add depth since we’re also graduating Love, the backup RT. If Cronk doesn’t want to switch he shouldn’t have to, nor should we want him to.

If he wants a chance at the NFL, it won’t be at tackle.

And that’s fine but why transfer if that’s what he wants? We’re graduating Stepaniak. I read the comment about his “having to change positions if he comes back” as though he doesn’t want to change. The fact of the matter is, he can start at any of the 5 spots and be easily the best on the team at it. We also get OL guys into the league all the time so what’s he gonna get at a place like Alabama other than the possibility of getting beat out?

I see what you’re saying. I’m not really sure the details behind why he’s leaving, so I agree that it’s likely not because of a “forced” position change. Could just be a change of scenery or something, who knows. 
 

Unfortunate, because with him moving inside and the success the guys on the outside had after he went down this season, the OL was looking to be a strength next year. Still will be solid as long as it stays healthy.

I agree and after all the love he was given from the staff, teammates and fans it’s just disappointing to see. I’m looking forward to the days where “Indiana” things stop happening to this program.
