UTEP Football: 2016 roster updates

The 2016 roster is starting to taking shape.

The UTEP Athletics website updated the 2016 football roster with class of 2016 signees, and 2015 grayshirts dotting the freshman class.

14 Class of 2016 members are on the roster including El Pasons defensive back Eric Foster, quarterback Mark Torrez, wide receiver Brannon Bullitt, linebackers Dylan Parsee, Kolbi McGary, and Sione Tupou, offensive lineman Jared Goldwire, defensive lineman Tiano Tialavea, and running backs Kevin Dove, and Quadraiz Wadley.

Notable 2015 signees who were grayshirts last fall are running back Tyrone Nelson, offensive lineman Greg Long, and defensive lineman Denzel Chukwukelu who are now listed on the updated roster.

2016 signees who will grayshirt on the offensive side are running backs Ronald Awatt, Walter Dawn Jr., and wideout/athlete Richie Rodriguez, and offensive lineman Robert DeHaro.

2016 3-star running back Antonio Dupree will be a Prop 48 or academic redshirt in upcoming the fall semester.

Some great news at linebacker is inside backer Stephen Forester was able redshirt and is now listed as a redshirt freshman after missing last season with injury.

Zack Greenlee will wear #8 in the Orange and Blue, and Cole Fretyag will switch and wear #11 for his senior campaign.

The roster could see some tweaking over the next couple of months ahead of the August 4th start of fall training camp along with a surprise addition or two with the most notable addition possibly coming in the form of a graduate transfer tight end.

In some recruiting news, 2017 quarterback Calvin Brownholtz reports he received a UTEP offer after participating in UTEP's elite camp last weekend.
