Last year: I ranked Hagerup #14 and said he would be the starting punter. He punted 29 times for 1,043 yards (36.0 yards per punt) and downed 5 inside the 20-yard line.
Hagerup was suspended for the first three games of last season because of off-the-field issues. His off-the-field issues carried over into on-the-field issues, however, because he only averaged 36.0 yards a punt as a sophomore after averaging 43.6 as a freshman in 2010. Minor fluctuations might be expected from a punter, but not a 7.6-yard drop.
Based on his first two seasons, all we can really count on is that Hagerup will get suspended. He went from being the best underclassman punter in the league and the nation's 28th-best punter (by average distance) in 2010 to somewhere around the 95th-best punter in the country as a sophomore, so I don't know what to expect out of his leg for 2012. However it turns out for him, he has a capable backup punter in sophomore Matt Wile (41.7 yards per punt last season), so if Hagerup can't get the job done, hopefully the coaches will insert someone who can.
Prediction: Starting punter unless he sucks again
