Dylan Sideline-Gardner: Why prized recruit didn't play in opener

By Paul Gerke. CREATED Sep 1, 2014

One of Boise State's potential play-makers rode the bench for the entire season opener against Ole Miss- prized recruit, Dylan Sumner-Gardner.

Coach Harsin explained why he didn't want to put the freshman into the game.

"I don't think there's any reason behind it, necessarily, other than just the flow of the game," said Harsin. "It's also about putting guys, especially young guys, in situations they are going to have success."

"I think you've got to be very careful, and I could name off several players at different teams that went in and played as freshmen and didn't have success. They're not playing anymore."
