Is Marcell Ateman ready to Breakout?



Of all the talk of the receiving group, Marcell Ateman remained mostly in the shadows in camp behind the hype of Sheperd, Washington, Seales, and others.

But there was chatter that Ateman was having a great camp as well. And on Thursday night, he looked ready to bust out.

In the depth chart, Ateman stood behind Brandon Sheperd, who was still clearly limited with his recent finger disclocation.

Ateman took full advantage of his opportunity, and ended the game with 75 total receiving yards, including a 18-yard touchdown grab that Mason Rudolph put only where Ateman could grab.

A quick refresher: Ateman is 6-foot-5! He should be making those plays.

After the game, Mike Gundy said that “He (Ateman) is in his third year now, so it’s time for him to start making some plays.”

With a big performance to build on at Mount Pleasant on Thursday, he could be ready to do just that.
