2001 Media Guide: Bam Childress is a redshirt freshman who made a late, but very impressive, switch from defensive back to wide receiver in the spring, literally swapping places with Mo Lee in a one-on-one trade that appears to have helped both the offense and the defense … has excellent hands, quick feet, terrific instincts and in the early going has demonstrated the ability to get open and make plays … coaches are anxious to see how he progresses in the fall with the benefit of more practices … also returns punts … an exciting young player.
