Deonte Welch was a forgotten man last year, but should play a role this season in the passing game for the Bulls. 

Deonte Welch – Redshirt junior – 6’ 206 lbs. – Williston, FL (Williston HS) – Wide receiver

2012: Welch played in 12 games last season, recording 18 catches for 183 yards.  He had a down year compared to 2011 where he made 4 starts (12 games) catching 31 passes for 433 yards (14 yards per catch) and a touchdown.

2013 Bull Rush Projection: Welch was kind of a forgotten man last year, barely getting play time till late in the year (was it him or good old Skip on that decision).  Welch has solid ball skills and has solid speed to make the catch in the flat and get solid yards.  He is probably 2nd on the depth chart behind the starters heading into the fall, which means if he is able to keep it up, he should see more playing time compared to last season.
