Which Bulls remain in play for a redshirt?

New NCAA guidelines allow players to appear in four games without burning their redshirt.

Like most staffs around the nation, USF's coaches maximized the NCAA's new redshirt rule, giving game time to many of its rookies early in the season.

But how many burned their redshirt in the process? Not as many as you might presume.

Entering the final five games of the regular season, several Bulls freshmen (and some veterans) have appeared in four or fewer games. Under the new guidelines, players can appear in up to four and still take a redshirt year.

Here's the list of Bulls who have played in four or fewer contests, with their respective number of appearances in parentheses. (Our source: USF's official game-by-game participation list.)

Those with an asterisk by their name already have redshirted. We also gave a designation (^) to walk-ons, some of whom haven't appeared in four or more games in multiple seasons.

RB Duran Bell (1)*
WR Ryeshene Bronson (4)*
TE Chris Carter (1)
LB Randal Copeland (1)
WR Deric Dubose (1)
DB Keyon Helton (1)
WR Terrence Horne (3)
QB Brett Kean (1)*
RB Elijah Mack (3)*
C Jean Marcellus (1)*
TE Jacob Mathis (3)*
LT Eric Mayes (4)
WR LaDarion McBride (1)^
QB Chris Oladokun (3)*
WR Jernard Phillips (4)
DL Marquies Price (1)*
WR Zion Roland (2)
OL Sebastian Sainterling (1)
WR Odunayo Seriki (2)
TE Riley Sheehan (1)^
RB Dave Small (3)^
OL Jeremiah Stafford (2)*
QB Kyle Trina (2)^
PK Jake Vivonetto (2)^
OL Ethan Watson (1)
DL Armon Williams (2)
DL Rashawn Yates (3)

Note: Bell and Mack are injured, according to coaches. Conceivably, both could seek a medical hardship if they don't play again this season (but we're getting waaayyy ahead of ourselves). Mayes already has graduated.
