The 2021-2022 season for the PSAL high school boys varsity basketball is here and the Lions of Lehman Campus are expected to face it with a plethora of new players after graduating 9 seniors but as usual, they have optimism that the returning players will be ready to carry the load.
The Lions, with COVID restrictions sort of lifted, have been preparing vigorously and as per Head Coach Francisco Rivera, “We have new faces and we will come together, get better and continue to improve as the season goes on with the common goal of getting better and growing as a team. I’m excited to see how this group comes together.
Jalen Elfe 5’10, is a 3 year starting senior guard who will be in the familiar role of leader and at times the go to guy. Jalen has good range on his 3pt shot to go along with his ability to finish in the paint, find the open man and playing both ends of the court.
5’8 seniors Chevy Williams and Angel Arce are both pesky defenders with good range on their 3pt shots. They play a tough brand of basketball and are being looked at for Leadership on offense and tough nosed defense.
6’6 seniors Steven Mejia and Gio Maldonado roles will both expand this year. They are athletic, block shots well, rebound, and have the ability to get up and down the floor quickly. 6’3 senior Jordan Mills will provide size and touch from the post area.
6ft seniors Elijah Flores and Justin Santiago should provide the defensive spark the team will need to close out games. Both have the ability to get to the basket and space the defense with their shooting.
6ft juniors Marques Hutchinson and Jayquan Lee can both score in multiple ways while providing the team great versatility. 6’1 Junior Chris Lature is a streak shooter you will have to pay attention too. 6’2 Juniors Tyler Laqqueri and Arial Vargas are projects with some nice potential. Sophomore Jaziel Vargas, seniors Noel Villanueva and Andrew Sanchez, along with juniors Zishawn Strouble and Mike Waleh round out the team’s depth at the guard position.
The coaching staff has big aspirations for the team and feels this could be a surprisingly big year for the Lions. As per Coach Rivera, “Our goal is to compete to win the Bronx championship and make a long run in the City to give ourselves a chance at states. The main goal is to get each senior placed into college whether or not basketball is part of the equation. We have a few guys who should be able to play college basketball as they continue to grow.”

When St Raymond High coaches Jorge Lopez and Chris Williams use their holiday day off to host a full slate of New York City power teams, it makes it very easy for RecruitTheBronx.com to live up to its name. On October 11, they did just that with their Test the Waters Invitational. It was a NYC hoops junkie’s dream, with so many of the region’s high talent players on display running with their high school teams.
Here are the college prospects that we took note of:
Jaden Daughtry (2023) 6’6 wing, St Francis Prep – Daughtry was impressive. He is a long, springy, lefty, with a great first step which made him both a scorer at the rim and a foul drawing magnet. Help defenders had to stay focused, because Daughtry would embarrass single man coverage. His basket drives were frequent because his ability to shoot the 3 warranted tight coverage. He was active without the ball and was a competitor on the boards. His length, athleticism and high motor also made him impactful as a help defender.
Vere Anthony (2025) 6’0 guard, St Francis Prep – If you wonder what it takes for a 6’0 freshman to crack the starting line up on a very deep SFP roster, you get to see that in Anthony. He uses his low-to-the-ground advantages well, creating his own gaps through the team defense, and has the body control to both finish and draw fouls. He has speed, quickness and a nose for the ball on defense, and excels at both getting the 50/50s and creating steals. He has good court vision and a nice mid-range pull-up. When he adds a reliable deep ball threat to his arsenal, he will draw collegiate interest over the next four years.
Chance Morrish (2022) 6’2 guard, St Francis Prep – Morrish has very live legs. They give him a lot of advantages on the hoops court. He has a quick rise jump shot that can’t be contested. He is a very active, will-to-win defender and especially nasty in his ability to pressure the ball.
Josh Pascarelli (2023) 6’2 guard, St Francis Prep – Pascarelli has a sweet, deep, game-changing 3 ball shot. It’s a problem, both because defenders have to extend beyond their ability to play help-defense elsewhere and because it makes his defender vulnerable to his quick first step blow-by moves. He also has the college-game complimentary floater game to beat the rim protection rotations.
Latiek Brisco (2022) 6’2 guard, St Francis Prep – Brisco has great foundational footwork that enables him to get up college-level quick release 3’s and mid-range jumpers. He has good court vision and leaves a jet stream behind when in transition. He earns free throws, and he makes them. He is also lock-down on-the-ball defender.
Justin Price (2022) 6’1 shooting guard, Immaculate Conception High (NJ) – Price was one of the highest percentage 3 ball shooters in the showcase. He consistently changed the momentum towards his team’s direction with every dagger 3 that he hit. He seems to be developing a complimentary floater game, which will serve him well vs college-sized rim defenders.
Jeremiah St John (2022) 6’9 forward, Immaculate Conception High (NJ) - St John has the D1 big man size. The ICHS offensive scheme avoided using him as a scoring or post passing threat, but he did score off of his offensive rebounds, and he likely set a single game record for number of screens set. He rebounds and defends as his great size would lend you to expect.
Mark Armstrong (2022) 6’2 guard, St Peter’s Prep (NJ) – This Villanova Commit is a very polished player. He has that High Major first step, hang time and body control. He shoots the 3, he shoots the floater, and gets himself into the paint as a Jay Wright-style playmaker. A vocal leader on defense.
Matt Kinsler (2023) 6’7 small forward, St Peter’s Prep (NJ) – When Kinsler matches up on defense with the opponent’s big, you’re initially led to believe he plays a skinny man’s version of center. Then as the game gets going, you start to realize, no, you are watching a D1 wing guard. He dribbles, he drives, and he finishes with either hand. He shoots the deep ball. He is the guy that his teammates look for to find the gaps and solve the press with IQ, vision and passing instincts.
Tobe Awaka (2022) 6’8 forward, Cardinal Hayes High - When you see Awaka in person, you just imagine that the Cardinal Hayes football coach probably weeps with jealousy every time he passes this Julius Pepper clone on campus. Awaka is big, strong and can overpower the opponent with deep post set-ups. It’s a big mistake to foul him, because he is money at the line. He leaves bruises and makes a great roll target off of his ball screens. There is no two-dribble scoring drives from the wing by the opponents; Awaka pins those to the backboard.
Ian Jackson (2024) 6’6 wing, Cardinal Hayes High – Nothing new to report here…i.e., Jackson is a High Major prospect loading… He has big time length, agility and explosive vertical lift. Terrific catch radius in receiving the ball, and is ambidextrous in his ability to finish. He also impressed with the intangibles of having scheme discipline and the patience to allow the offense to come to him. Right now, at this point in his development, his most impactful aspect is his ability and desire to destroy the opponent with his defense.
Elijah Moore (2024) 6’3 guard, Cardinal Hayes High – Although only a sophomore on a very talent-loaded team, Moore is the vocal leader on defense. He is athletic and agile and is gonna smoke you with his deep ball shooting.
Tarique Foster (2022) 6’7 forward, Cardinal Hayes High – A very competitive rebounder and a highlight reel Alley Oop target. Foster is active, athletic, and long, He is unselfish in nature and makes the team’s schemes work well.
Brandon Williams (2023) 6’8 guard, Christ the King High – Williams suits up and you think you may be looking at a physically dominant power forward, then he takes the court and you quickly realize that you are watching a very high ceiling guard. He is a load off of the dribble drive. He overpowers, and/or outsizes the guys trying to stop him on his way to a score, getting fouled or finding the teammate that he just got open. Trying to sag off and cut down his drive angles doesn’t help, he’ll splash the long ball in that situation. When in the paint, he rebounds well as his great size and athleticism enables.
Dwayne Pierce (2024) 6’5 shooting guard, Christ the King High – Pierce is the college built scorer. He will hit the three, but then can blow-by when that shot is over-contested. He has a great first step and the body control to attack the rim. He is a foul drawing magnet. Excellent ability to accelerate in transition.
Bryce Merchant (2022) 6’5 small forward, Christ the King High – Merchant is the “positionless” scheme coach’s guy. He is just as happy posting up and being a physical scorer as he is splashing it from deep. Try extending out to hand-check his three ball, and you’ll just trigger a freight train drive into the lane by him.
Nate Boateng (2023) 6’6 small forward, Fordham Prep - Boateng steals your heart with his will-to-win help-defense effort. He is long, athletic, very active and takes it personally if anyone with 10 feet of him is trying to score. He is like the Catholic School fundamentals student of basketball. He uses his D1 physical gifts and sets great screens, makes great passes, rebounds with desire, and finishes shots with either hand. But if you need a little splash with all those solid traits, then lob up an Alley Oop pass in his direction, he will throw that down for you too.
Thomas Whelan (2022) 6’0 guard, Fordham Prep - Whelan does not have typical D1 size, but boy does he have the “it” factor on the basketball court. He was clearly big factor in Fordham winning the City title last year. He does that, he wins games. He is very tough-minded and has an uncanny ability to break down a team defense with vision, decision making and his ability to make plays. He’s blessed with a quick first step and quick-off-of-the-floor ups. He embellishes those with pump-n-go deception. A coach’s scheme “genius” gets boosted up several levels when Whelan is in the game.
Don Colon Lewis (2023) 6’6 power forward, Xaverian High - Lewis is an absolute clinic on how to get open in the post. Truly one of the more impressive players we’ve seen in that technique. It’s clear why he works so hard and so well to earn the entry pass, because once he gets it, he is money. His wide body belies his quick pivot, soft hands and doesn’t-miss finishing talent. He also doesn’t let his opponents get their fair share of the rebounding pie. He is strong, active and very tough to get around. His college recruiting will take a hit because he is carrying a lot of extra pounds. But for some college coach, this will be seen as an opportunity, not a problem. I.e., whoever get Lewis to buy into a college level diet and conditioning program, will get themselves a key piece at the next level.
Michael Walker (2023) 6’7 forward, Xaverian High - Walker will lead your squad in rebounding. He combines his D1 size and strength with motor and instincts to really get it done on the boards. For similar reasons, he is a valuable help-defender. Offensively, he is a textbook roll man off of the ball screen. He loves to post up but is also hard to deal with when driving from the wing.
Tristan Davis (2025) 5’9 guard, Thomas Jefferson High - You know that Davis must be special, to be able to crack the starting line-up and be very impactful as the (maybe) 5’9 freshman in the guard-rich Jefferson roster. You rub your eyes in disbelief, seeing the impact that such an under-sized, baby faced player can have in a high level game. He does it with some Barry Sanders type quickness, agility and impressive vertical leaping ability. His cross-over in tight spaces is unguardable. His ability to finish near the rim is so much better than it should be for a (maybe) 5’9 player. Similarly, his stop-n-pop jumper is not going to get defended. He has four years to invest in building his long ball game, if he adds that floor stretching ability, he will over-achieve like the other exceptional small guards have. before him.
Javoy Thompson (2023) 6’6 guard, Mt St Michaels Academy - Thompson is a lengthy and athletic D1 sized guard who wants to lead the league in assists. And he is very good at it. When he drives, his length and athleticism is so threatening that the help-defense has to converge. He then uses his above-the-rim elevation and great vision to hit the most open teammate on the floor. He has a great catch radius, making it difficult to deny him the ball and the ensuing ability to make plays. He uses the same combination of length and athleticism to rebound well. The more he develops his ability to hit floor stretching 3’s, the higher up the D1 level he will play.
Noah Best (2022) 6’5 guard, Mt St Michaels Academy - Best is a clear D1 level prospect. He has a pretty, quick off-of-the-floor, jump shot that works both as a mid-range pull-up and from three ball range. He has deceptively effective ball skills for a guard of his length. He also has the athleticism to finish at the rim, and to defend at the rim at the other end of the floor.
Max Ragusa (2020) 6’0 point guard, South Shore High - Max Ragusa has jet speed. Max Ragusa is a gifted shot maker, floaters, rim finishes, 3 ball, etc. Oh, and by the way, Max Ragusa does those things as an sideline to running the show for his team’s offense in the half court and in transition. New York City high school ball will miss The Max Ragusa Show when he moves on to the next level, next year.
Davin Francis (2023) 6’6 shooting guard, South Shore High - The Vikings are gonna be hard to handle in PSAL this season. Teams will struggle to minimize the damage caused by Ragusa, Tyliek Weaks, Ibrahim Ba and Kyrone Alexander, but a lot of fatal daggers will also come from the sweet, high release 3 ball from Davin Francis. They cannot defend his shot, they just have to pray that he misses. When a defender over-commits to stop the long ball, Franics counters with D1 length and first step acceleration. He has the long arms and athleticism that also makes him tough to guard on a basket drive. He also has an impressive cross-over move for a player of his length. He is very useful in defensive rotations with his ability to defend above the rim.
RJ Greene (2022) 6’5 wing, Iona Prep - Greene’s game-within-the-game is that he wants to foul out all of your rim protectors as soon as possible. He has the James Harden long and strong arms and body control to bait the opponent’s bigs into whacking him on rim drives. He is a very invested defender, using those same physical gifts and a whole lot of motor to make potential scorers have a bad day.
Blaise New (2022) 5’10 point guard, Iona Prep - It was a treat to see New match up vs. Ragusa, in a battle of two of the region’s toughest small guards. (It seems like it turned out to be a draw). Jitter bug quick and nails tough, Blaise is a problem. He loves drawing the defense out with his long ball, then making them pay for having too many gaps. Opponents need to coach their ball handlers to quit dribbling whenever within 10 feet of New. If you don’t, your dribble is gonna become his dribble.
Isaiah Philbert (2022) 6’0 shooting guard, St Raymond High - Philbert finished his game with a game high 22 points (five 3 ptrs). Philbert is becoming one of the best shooters in NYC. He has long range on his 3, a nice pull up jump shot and is a versatile defender. The MVP of his 2021 JV Championship squad, Philbert is becoming a hot name within NYC basketball circles.
Brandon Stores (2025) 6’3 shooting guard, St Raymond High - Stores lived up to the billing as one of the top, if not the top, freshman in a deep NYC class. His versatility was on full display as he scored from all three levels, scoring 16 in this game. He is a physically imposing guard that has a ton of upside.
CJ Riley (2022) 6’0 guard, Wings Academy - Riley’s transfer into Wings has been impactful. He was their lead guard, with his skilled handle. He was their leading scorer, with 16. He is also a terror on the ball as defender, and a confirmed pick pocket as a steals threat. He has range as shooter and impact as a playmaker off of the dribble.
Mohammed Kante (2022) 6’3 guard, Wings Academy - Kante slashed his way to 11 points and six rebounds against the CHSAA power, St Raymond. He has an array of moves around the basket and uses his length to be a pesky defender at the other end. He is a fierce competitor who will keep Wings in the hunt for a PSAL title.
The first ever Mental Toughness Exposure Clinic was a four-hour event that took place at the Westport YMCA in Connecticut. The purpose of the camp was to give high school players genuine exposure in front of college coaches, while using basketball to continue a mission of spreading mental health awareness.

The event’s standouts were:
Ayo Aminu (2023) 6’5 small forward, Notre Dame-West Haven High, AAU team: Gibson Way - Ayo is a true hybrid forward who can put the ball on the ground an attack the basket or punish you from outside. He has a good feel for the game and makes the right decision with the ball in his hands. His athleticism also makes him a talented defender who can alter shots with his length. With his size and ability to handle the ball, he is a mismatch for smaller opposing guards and can rise over defenders closing out on his jump shot.
Cooper Galdenzi (2023) 6’2 guard, The Morgan School: Cooper is a strong, physical, and athletic guard who is not afraid to get downhill, getting to the rim and finishing through contact. Though, he also will make you pay with his ability to consistently make feet set three-pointers. He is an intelligent player who has good shot selection and understands spacing and movement off the ball. Galdenzi’s athleticism in the open court gives him a step above the competition too as he can throw down some impressive dunks.
Darien Gillins (2023) 6’2 guard, Beacon High, AAU team: Playmakers AAU - Darien was a calm and collected player who plays at his own pace. He has good basketball IQ and does the little things well for his age. He hits his open jump shots and has a good release when the ball is coming off his hands. He also can deal with pressure while handling the ball and does not over dribble. Lastly, he is an athletic defender that has good on ball-defense that gives opposing guards some problems.
Roger Squire 2022 6’5 small forward, North Salem High, AAU team: NorthStar Naturals - Roger has good size and strength inside and uses his body well in carving out space. His handle needs to get a little sharper, but he has the ability to blow by defenders and attack the basket. He even threw down a couple dunks in the live games. Squire is good on the offensive glass and can get to his spot on the blocks and rise over defenders, while finishing through contact. He also can hit feet set jump shots, which makes him hard to guard as he can work inside and out.

He is a mixture of Andre Drummond’s strength and rebounding mixed with a little of Vin Baker’s scoring skillset. No one can match his toughness when he sets his mind to it. Offers will be coming at a rapid pace with new Middletown head coach Eric Holley at the helm.
Tyrone Cummings 6’2, Norwich Free Academy - This kid has uncanny athleticism, built like a running back and has nearly a 40 inch vertical.

Ashton Sannasi (2022) - one of the top guards at the showcase. He sees the floor extremely well while penetrating. He has a College mid-range pull-up game.

On October 1, Hoop Group brought their Exposure Tour to Harlem at the three court complex at Riverbank State Park. Over 130 prospects were put through the paces for about five and half hours. RecruitTheBronx.com stopped in and caught a look at the following high potential players:
Mohamed Soumahoro (2022) 6’6 forward, KIPP NYC College Prep – Soumahoro has been blessed with a D1 basketball body: tall, log arms and trampoline legs. He was the dominant performer of the night. Rarely do we see a player score 30 points in a game… and shoot >90% in doing so. Those stats were helped by 11 dunks. Dunks in transition, dunks off of wing drives, dunks off of post moves, and dunks off of offensive rebounds. On the rare times he couldn’t get over the rim, his long arms and vertical lift also allowed him to be a very high percentage finisher off of the backboard. When the opponents’ tried to back up to slow his drives, Soumahoro showed that he can also hit the under-contested three. His physical advantages were also making him a strong paint enforcer and rebounder.
Isaiah Alexander (2022) 6’7 wing, Archbishop Stepinac – Alexander is a D1 wing….loading. “Smooth” is the defining label on Alexander’s offensive game. He glides to get open, he glides through the defense, and he has an effortless, high release outside shot. His defensive intensity will determine how high he lands in D1. A solid 2021-22 season in Stepinac’s CHSAA title campaign, should put him in the habit of competing at the highest level on that end of the floor.
Jordan Randolph (2025) 6’2 point guard, Success Academy – We had to keep double-checking Randolph’s listed grad year. His point guard play far exceeded the expected level of a high school freshman. He was a complete master of the basketball universe, when running the show. He sees it, reads it, and then gets the ball where it should be ASAP. That includes the ability to call his own number, and opportunistically slice through a team defense. His has quick hands on defense and will embarrass ball handlers with a picked pocket, both as a primary defender and in a help-defense rotation. If he can put together a >40% three point shot over the next three years, he will go to college for free.
Damon Friery (2025) 6’7 small forward, St Ignatius (OH) – An old scout’s showcase hack: whenever a player travels from a long way to participate in a Houp Group Exposure Event, they’re gonna be really, really good. Friery did not play like a freshman, he played MVP ball in all aspects of the game. The national prospects ranking agencies need to be put on notice in their Class of 2025 Top Players work.
Desmond Ulokameje (2023) 6’2 guard, McNair High (NJ) – Ulokameje is an agile, strong and long armed prospect. He was tough inside the arc. He used his long step and long arms advantages well with a variety of slice through, jump stop, pump, pivot and step through play making tools. We saw him hit nice midrange pull-ups. Future college scouts will be looking to see if he has also built himself a college level three point shot.
Diego Martella (2023) 6’0 guard, Eleanor Roosevelt High – Martella is a lot of meals and weight lifting sessions away from looking like a college prospects, but he showed a lot on the court. He was crafty and surprising in all elements of his game, including sneaky defensive instincts. He was one of the best shot makers in the building and sees the game on both ends very well.
Jon Reiner (2022) 6’0 gurad, Beacon High – Reiner played the game like he really wants to win. Intense and athletic in his ability to impact the game. He was also money from beyond the arc. Excellent spirit that will elevate a team’s ability to compete.
Eddy Hart 6’2 guard, St Raymonds High – Hart has a great nose for the basket. He is a lefty with a great first step and long armed ability to finish past rim protectors. He complemented his ability to beat the defender off of the dribble with an unguardable step-back jumper.
Victor Cruz (2022) 5’9 guard, Christ the King – We probably aren’t the only “Coach Carter” movie fans who connect to that movie’s key character, Timo Cruz when watching Victor Cruz. He is that prototypical NYC point guard: gritty, serious, hard-playing and shifty as hell. Very difficult to stay in front of, a package of stop-n-gos, left-then-rights, rights-then-lefts. That package is complimented in a key way with a solid midrange jumper.
Kristan Lewis (2022) 6’2 guard, Vision Academy - Lewis played like he is ready to make some noise in his upcoming season. He is a strongly built player, and uses that to his full advantage on the basketball court. He is alert, active and physical, on both ends of the court. He sees the floor well, and has a quick-off-the-floor, high release jump shot.
Ben Lyttle (2023) 6’5 wing, Archbishop Stepinac – Lyttle is the guy that “position-less” scheme coaches are looking for. Built like a high major tight end prospect, he combines those physical blessings with a great energy and effort level on the court. He is a nasty thief in the passing lanes, reading the situation better than the opponent’s passers. He is very effective as a screen setter, and very savvy as a screen-slipping scoring threat. And like all great energy and athletic players, he is an impactful rebounder.
Necho Estiler (2023) 6’1 guard, McNair High (NJ) – Estiler is strongly built, athletic and active. He leaves his opponents with multiple bruise souvenirs. He has a great first step, and is hard to contest at the rim due to either hand being available to put the ball past wherever the rim protectors’ hands leave a gap. If he is guarding you, you’re gonna have a long night.
Hassan Koureissi (2026) 6’1 guard Mott Hall Charter Middle School – It’s generally really, really hard to predict which eight graders will have the work ethic to build themselves into a college prospect, but Koureissi shows eye-catching potential. He has a long limbed body that looks like its’ got a whole lot of growing and maturing left to do. He already has the long ball accuracy, and belief in his ability to hit that shot that will open a lot of doors…and defenses… for him going forward. Those long arms get a lot use in the poke steal game and finishing well at the basket.
Sebastian Roda (2022) 6’4 guard, New York Military Academy – Cadet Roda made his trip down the Hudson pay off. He showed a lot, a natural for the positionless game in that he is a Swiss Army knife on the court. He is active and in charge of the game. Sees the game very well. A crafty shot maker who finds a way to get the ball in the bucket when it’s the right decision.
Brandon Nathan (2024) 5’8 Medgar Evers College Prep – Nathan is that guy that NYC ball produces like no other. Tough, relentless, low-to-the ground elusive. His change-of-direction ball handling in a migraine for the opponent. He also showed a three point shot that will help him grab a college scout’s attention.

2022 NFL Draft bowl tracker: Georgia and Alabama rematch littered with future NFL talent
College football bowl season kicked off Friday, Dec. 17 and carries through early January with the College Football Playoffs. Several players will opt out of respective bowl opportunities, but many more will close out their collegiate careers before jettisoning to the NFL. CBSSports.com is tracking all of the prospects to watch throughout bowl season:
Tuesday, Jan. 4
LSU vs. Kansas State (9 p.m. ET on ESPN)
Since parting ways with head coach Ed Orgeron and hiring Brian Kelly, LSU has been a team in transition. Cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. is considered to be the best available at his position but he has not played since September. The Tigers are sending defensive lineman Neil Farrell Jr., linebacker Damone Clark and interior offensive lineman Ed Ingram to the Reese's Senior Bowl.
Fans often hear of an offensive lineman that plays with a mean streak. Kansas State's Cooper Beebe embodies that description. He brings a physicality to the table for the Wildcats. Only a sophomore, the Kansas native has time before he has to make a decision on his professional future.
Monday, Jan. 10
College Football Playoff National Championship
No. 3 Georgia vs. No. 1 Alabama (8 p.m. ET on ESPN)
Georgia running back James Cook, the brother of Vikings' Dalvin Cook, has joined Zamir White as draftable options at the position. Cook was very impactful in the semifinal against Michigan. Wide receiver George Pickens is a big downfield threat that can also be used in jump ball situations in the end zone. The bulk of the Bulldogs' professional prospects are found on defense.
Along the front seven, Kirby Smart's team boats defensive lineman Travon Walker, Devonte Wyatt and Jordan Davis. Davis is a mammoth run-stuffer that does have a bit of pass rushing potential to offer. He and Walker have been labeled as potential first round picks. The linebacker group featuring Quay Walker, Channing Tindall and Nakobe Dean is the best in the nation. Dean gets all of the attention and hype but Walker has the size and freakish athleticism that could eventually allow him to join his teammate in first round conversation. Cornerback Derion Kendrick, a Clemson transfer, has the athletic ability to be in that next group of cornerbacks behind Stingley.
Alabama is loaded on both sides of the ball. Wide receiver Jameson Williams, an Ohio State transfer, has the best chance to surpass former Buckeye teammate Garrett Wilson as the first wide receiver selected. Unfortunately, wide receiver John Metchie III was lost for the season due to injury. Gardner and Williams could be an entertaining matchup. It could also be a big day for tight ends Jahleel Billingsley and Cameron Latu. Offensive tackle Evan Neal is a rare prospect with his combination of size and athleticism. For those reasons and more, the Florida native is often noted as a top 10 overall pick.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Crimson Tide have a pair of NFL prospects at linebacker: Christian Harris and Henry To'oTo'o. While Harris began the pre-draft process as a first round pick, To'oTo'o has eclipsed his teammate in my personal rankings. From Dylan Moses to Mack Wilson, Alabama often has a linebacker among first round projections early in the season but it seldom plays out that way. Safety Jordan Battle is another that finds himself in first round projections. Safety Jordan Battle is also among the best at his position.
Saturday, Jan. 1
Penn State 10, No. 21 Arkansas 24 (Recap)
The Nittany Lions landed Temple's Arnold Ebiketie in the offseason. Ebiketie has done as much for his stock as any other player in the country. It is a position group that is wide open beyond the top three: Oregon's Kayvon Thibodeaux, Michigan's Aidan Hutchinson and Purdue's George Karlaftis. Ebiketie fits into that second tier. Jaquan Brisker has established himself as one of the best senior safeties in the nation. Linebacker Brandon Smith has great size and athleticism but production has not met expectations. Cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields is another NFL prospect.
Wide receiver Jahan Dotson is one of the best in the nation. He is a fast player that has shown an ability to win at all three levels this season. Offensive tackle Rasheed Walker is not the first round pick that many considered early in the year but he still has an NFL future.
Arkansas center Ricky Stromberg and safety Jalen Catalon made the decision to return to school. Wide receiver Treylon Burks is a rare combination of size and play-making ability. Burks has spent a lot of time in the slot and his blocking potential could be an enticing option for a wide zone prevalent scheme in the first round. Defensive tackle John Ridgeway III is headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. He is a wide body with limited pass rush potential.
Vrbo Citrus Bowl
No. 15 Iowa 17, No. 22 Kentucky 20 (Recap)
Iowa is led by the best offensive lineman in the nation: center Tyler Linderbaum. Linderbaum has great athleticism but is also going to finish plays with physicality. The ex-wrestler is comfortably a top 10 talent in this draft class. Tight end Sam LaPorta acquits himself well as a blocker and has better receiving ability than he has been empowered to display.
Cornerback Riley Moss has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl. The Iowa native has had at least two interceptions each of his four seasons.
Wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson transferred from Nebraska to Lexington to play in offensive coordinator Liam Coen's pass-happy scheme. Robinson was one of the most productive pass catchers in the SEC last season. Traditionally sized to play in the slot, the Kentucky native showed an ability to win at all three levels. The league went on a shopping spree for smaller, faster wide receivers on Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft. Offensive tackles Dare Rosenthal and Darian Kinnard, center Luke Fortner were integral in the success of physical running back Chris Rodriguez. Fortner moved over from offensive guard after Drake Jackson moved on to the NFL.
Defensive lineman Josh Paschal is a bit of a tweener by traditional standards but there is a place for him in the modern NFL. He has a non-stop motor. Defensive tackle Marquan McCall is primarily a nose tackle with some pass rush potential. He is a good option for teams that do not land Georgia's Jordan Davis. Defensive back Yusuf Corker is headed to Reese's Senior Bowl.
PlayStation Fiesta Bowl
No. 5 Notre Dame 35, No. 9 Oklahoma State 37 (Recap)
Notre Dame running back Kyren Williams does not have ideal size for an NFL running back but that should not exclude him from the discussion of best running back prospect. He is a three down back that can contribute in the pass game. The decisions to return to school for Minnesota's John Michael Schmitz and Arkansas' Ricky Stromberg directly impacts Fighting Irish center Jarrett Patterson, who promises to be one of the best prospects available at the position.
Safety Kyle Hamilton opted out of the bowl game after dealing with an injury late in the season. Hamilton is in the conversation for best prospect regardless of position. He is another one of those overhang linebackers that can drop into coverage or play downhill. Notre Dame's defensive line features two future NFL players in defensive tackle Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa (cousin of Tua Tagovailoa) and edge rusher Isaiah Foskey.
The play of Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders is a rollercoaster ride. He is throwing two touchdowns for every one interception, but averaging 4.2 yards per carry, which makes him the team's second leading rusher. Safety Kolby Harvell-Peel has been highly productive, accumulating 10 interceptions over the last three seasons. Wide receiver Tay Martin has a good chance to to 1,000 total receiving yards this season. He needs just 58 yards. Martin, who stepped in for Tylan Wallace, is a tall, slender receiver.

No. 6 Ohio State 48, No. 11 Utah 45 (Recap)
Ohio State wide receivers Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave are the cream of the crop. They are certainly two of the top five prospects at their position and they might be the two best. Wilson has insane body control and post-catch play-making ability. Olave is Mr. Consistent and a magnet for throws in the red zone. Tight end Jeremy Ruckert is one of the better blocking tight ends in college football. Offensive linemen Nicholas Petit-Frere, Thayer Munford and Dawand Jones should all hear their names called regardless of when they decide to leave for the league.
Defensive tackle Haskell Garrett and edge rusher Tyreke Smith have accepted Reese's Senior Bowl invitations. The other piece to that defensive line, Zach Harrison, was a highly-regarded high school recruit.
Few teams were playing as well as Utah at season's end. Linebacker Devin Lloyd, who I have favorably compared to Fred Warner, is my top linebacker prospect and a surefire first round choice. Edge rusher Mike Tafua and linebacker Nephi Sewell have made their intentions of leaving for the NFL known. Offensive guard Nick Ford is another Ute of note.
Allstate Sugar Bowl
No. 8 Ole Miss 7, No. 7 Baylor 21 (Recap)
Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral has shown improved decision-making an accuracy in his second season under head coach Lane Kiffin. Despite an offense that relies upon getting the ball out quickly, Corral has shown an ability to push the ball to all three levels. Wide receiver Dontario Drummond has been a big play threat all season. Offensive tackle Nick Broeker was in most first-round pre-season projections but his season did not live up that billing. His future is still paved for the NFL, however. Running back Jerrion Ealy is one of the most explosive prospects in college football.
On defense, the Rebels have edge rusher Sam Williams and safety A.J. Finley. Williams was fifth in college football with 12.5 sacks. He was eighth in forced fumbles. Combined with his size, there is a good chance he is headed for Day 2.
Baylor has a two-headed rushing attack with Trestan Ebner and Abram Smith. The latter is headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. Both are of similar size and have been very productive for the Big XII champion Bears. Safety Jalen Pitre is one of the most exciting defenders in college football. He has good size and can drop in coverage or play down in the box. He is a likely Day 2 choice. Linebacker Terrel Bernard, along with Pitre, is also headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. Bernard is a modern day NFL linebacker that glides around the field. He has contributed at least 3.5 sacks each of the past three seasons. The most recent campaign was his first without an interception. Few coaches were as impressive as Baylor's Dave Aranda this season.
Friday, Dec. 31
TaxSlayer Gator Bowl
No. 17 Wake Forest vs. Rutgers (Recap)
Wake Forest wide receiver Jaquarii Roberson has good range and great body control. He averaged 15.2 yards per reception this season in the absence of Donovan Greene. The Demon Deacons offense allowed for their skill players to make plays after the catch. Offensive tackle Zach Tom reminds a bit of Christian Darrisaw in the sense that he never panics into pass protection. He has a strong upper body and an acceptable arm length to fend off defenders. Cornerback Ja'Sir Taylor has a slight frame but is a smooth athlete that breaks hard on the ball. Taylor has been effective playing in the slot.
Rutgers wide receiver Bo Melton has been efficient over the last four years. Melton is headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. He fights through his routes and is not afraid to make a contested catch. The New Jersey native shows good speed and some agility in space. Cornerback Avery Young is a physical player that is not afraid to mix things up. He has tremendous versatility playing man and zone coverage with exposure to the field and boundary.
Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl
Washington State vs. Central Michigan (Recap)
Washington State defensive back Jaylen Watson and offensive tackle Abraham Lucas are headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. Watson, a former USC signee, has great length and good ball production in 2021. Running back Max Borghi has been a dual-threat skill player for the Cougars. Early in his career, under the direction of Air Raid aficionado Mike Leach, he was catching passes at a high rate. In 2021, he recorded the best rushing numbers of his career.
Central Michigan offensive tackle Bernhard Raimann has great athleticism and his technique is improving. As a former tight end, he has only been playing the position for a few years. The Austrian will be 25-years-old shortly after the season begins but that has not stopped many from including him in first-round projections. Offensive tackle Luke Goedeke projects inside and that transition could begin in January at the Reese's Senior Bowl next to Raimann. Cornerback Dishon McNary showed enough speed to mirror D'Wayne Eskridge last year. He has good size but limited ball production.
College Football Playoff Semifinal: Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic
No. 4 Cincinnati vs. No. 1 Alabama (Recap)
A half dozen Bearcats have already pledged the Reese's Senior Bowl: cornerback Coby Bryant, safety Bryan Cook, edge rusher Myjai Sanders, quarterback Desmond Ridder, linebacker Darrian Beavers and wide receiver Alec Pierce. Ridder is one of the quarterbacks most often mentioned as possibly joining the first round contenders. He can throw with great touch and drive the ball at times but it has been inconsistent. His receiver, Pierce, is part of a talented assembly of potential Day 2 options.
Cincinnati cornerback Ahmad 'Sauce' Gardner has been stingy in coverage this season. Gardner is almost a unanimous inclusion in first round mock drafts. LSU's Derek Stingley Jr. is widely-regarded as the top prospect at his position but the Bearcat has himself firmly entrenched in the debate for No. 2.
Alabama is loaded on both sides of the ball. Wide receiver Jameson Williams, an Ohio State transfer, has the best chance to surpass former Buckeye teammate Garrett Wilson as the first wide receiver selected. Unfortunately, wide receiver John Metchie III was lost for the season due to injury. Gardner and Williams could be an entertaining matchup. It could also be a big day for tight ends Jahleel Billingsley and Cameron Latu. Offensive tackle Evan Neal is a rare prospect with his combination of size and athleticism. For those reasons and more, the Florida native is often noted as a top 10 overall pick.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Crimson Tide have a pair of NFL prospects at linebacker: Christian Harris and Henry To'oTo'o. While Harris began the pre-draft process as a first round pick, To'oTo'o has eclipsed his teammate in my personal rankings. From Dylan Moses to Mack Wilson, Alabama often has a linebacker among first round projections early in the season but it seldom plays out that way. Safety Jordan Battle is another that finds himself in first round projections.
I'll save a little meat on the bone in the event that the Crimson Tide advance to the College Football Playoffs Finals.

College Football Playoff Semifinal: Capital One Orange Bowl
No. 3 Georgia vs. No. 2 Michigan (Recap)
Georgia running back James Cook, the brother of Vikings' Dalvin Cook, has joined Zamir White as draftable options at the position. Wide receiver George Pickens is a big downfield threat that can also be used in jump ball situations in the end zone. The bulk of the Bulldog's professional prospects are found on defense.
Along the front seven, Kirby Smart's team boats defensive lineman Travon Walker, Devonte Wyatt and Jordan Davis. Davis is a mammoth run-stuffer that does have a bit of pass rushing potential to offer. He and Walker have been labeled as potential first round picks. The linebacker group featuring Quay Walker, Channing Tindall and Nakobe Dean is the best in the nation. Dean gets all of the attention and hype but Walker has the size and freakish athleticism that could eventually allow him to join his teammate in first round conversation. Cornerback Derion Kendrick, a Clemson transfer, has the athletic ability to be in that next group of cornerbacks behind Stingley.
Most fans became familiar with Michigan's offensive line in that snowy affair with Ohio State. The hard-nosed group, led by Ryan Hayes and Andrew Steuber, set the tone early and often against that flashy Ohio State front and opened big holes for running back Hassan Haskins.
The Wolverines have two potential first-round edge rushers in Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo. Ojabo is an ascending prospect with as much bend around the corner as any prospect in this class. Hutchinson is the relentless, physical pass rusher that bullies blockers and engulfs quarterbacks. The presence of both prevents opposing teams from throwing double teams in either direction. Linebacker Josh Ross and safety Brad Hawkins are a few prospects that should hear their names called in April. Finally, do-it-all defensive back Daxton Hill could warrant first-round consideration. He was involved in a back and forth recruiting battle between Michigan and Alabama that ultimately saw the Wolverines win out. Hill can impact passing lanes or drop into the box to make plays.

Thursday, Dec. 30
Duke's Mayo Bowl
North Carolina 21, South Carolina 38 (Recap)
North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell shows strong leadership skills. He is a gritty passer with average mobility. Howell's accuracy was very spotty this season and many are wondering if he needs a strong supporting cast to be successful.
Linebacker Jeremiah Gemmel is headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. His teammate and Vikings third-round pick Chazz Surratt received all of the notoriety last season but Gemmel has good eyes. His communication skills have been tested and approved.
South Carolina boats edge rusher Kingsley Enagbare, who is also headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. Enagbare is a name that often gets tossed around in first round conversation as one of the top pass rushers. Defensive tackle Zacch Pickens and edge rusher Jordan Strachan entered the campaign with significant fanfare but that did not play out as anticipated. Running back ZaQuandre White has already declared for the draft while his running mate, Kevin Harris, also has an NFL future.
TransPerfect Music City Bowl
Tennessee 45, Purdue 48 (Recap)
Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker is returning for another season to build upon an already stable foundation in Knoxville. Hooker gave that offense a boost upon entering the starting lineup. Wide receiver Cedrick Tillman is returning as well, while Velus Jones Jr. is onto professional pursuits. Jones, a USC transfer, delivered some big plays for the Volunteers, in addition to return capabilities. The league showed a desire for quicker wide receivers that can create yards after the catch in 2021 and Jones fits the criteria. Cornerback Alontae Taylor and offensive guard Cade Mays are potential top 100 picks. Mays is still waffling on his decision. Taylor has already committed to the Reese's Senior Bowl.
Purdue's George Karlaftis is a heavy-handed pass rusher that fights through chips and double teams. He fights through blocks to create pressure at an impressive rate. Karlaftis deserves to be mentioned in the same stratosphere as Michigan's Aidan Hutchinson. Wide receiver David Bell has great size. He has good body control and shows great range to make catches outside of his frame.
Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl
No. 10 Michigan State 31, No. 12 Pittsburgh 21 (Recap)
Michigan State had a storybook season in Mel Tucker's second season. Running back Kenneth Walker III put together a Heisman-worthy season and has forcefully entered his name into the discussion for first running back off the board. Walker showed a lot more agility post-Wake Forest. Fullback Connor Heyward has worn many hats for the Spartans over the years. The younger brother of Steelers defensive lineman Cam Heyward is headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. Wide receivers Jalen Nailor and Jayden Reed compiled 84 receptions for 1,533 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Defensive lineman Jacub Panasiuk is a smart player that knows how to exploit the opponent. He is not quick twitch but shows a variety of moves to apply pressure.
Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett has done as much as anyone to improve his stock from last year to this season. He will likely not get a first-round grade from me but he will almost certainly be one of the first quarterbacks selected in April. Offensive lineman Carter Warren is returning to the Steel City so that leaves cornerback Damarri Mathis as the program's top prospect outside of Pickett. Long snapper Cal Adomitis and Mathis are headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl.
SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl
Wisconsin 20, Arizona State 13 (Recap)
Wisconsin tight end Jake Ferguson is headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. Ferguson has soft hands and blocks with good leverage. Logan Bruss projects an interior player despite playing right tackle this season. Bruss has disciplined eyes and does a good job of flashing hands at varying rates.
Defensive tackle Keeanu Benton is one of the top prospects at Camp Randall but he has elected to return for another season. Linebackers Jack Sanborn and Leo Chenal are a physical pair that have spots in the NFL.
The left side of Arizona State's offensive line has been underappreciated this season Offensive tackle Kellen Diesch and offensive guard Dohnovan West pave the way for big play running back Rachaad White. Herm Edwards' defense is loaded with NFL prospects. The secondary features safety Evan Fields and cornerbacks Jack Jones, Chase Lucas. Jones began his career at USC and is now finishing up his sixth season of college football.
Wednesday, Dec. 29
New Era Pinstripe Bowl
Maryland 54, Virginia Tech 10 (Recap)
The Terrapins should have one of the best receiver rooms in the country next season with Dontay Demus Jr. and Rakim Jarrett returning, plus the addition of Florida transfer Jacob Copeland. Led by Taulia Tagovailoa, Maryland could have a formidable offense next season. Offensive tackle Jaelyn Duncan was a highly regarded recruit with immense athletic upside. Coming into the year, he had some oversetting issues to correct. Safety Nick Cross has stuffed the stat sheet over the course of his career. He has accumulated six interceptions, three sacks and two forced fumbles.
Virginia Tech's Amare Barno is a long pass rusher with limited production. Scouts have been intrigued with his capabilities, and he has the opportunity to showcase them in Mobile in January. Interior offensive lineman Lecitus Smith and wide receiver Tre Turner are also headed to the Senior Bowl. Turner is a slender-framed wide receiver. Virginia Tech's pass catchers did a really good job of committing as blockers. The Hokies lost wide receiver Tayvion Robinson in the transfer portal. He is a competitive prospect who attacks the ball in the air. Robinson could really break out at Kentucky in a similar role that Wan'Dale Robinson thrived in this season.
No. 19 Clemson 20, Iowa State 13 (Recap)
The Clemson cornerback tandem of Mario Goodrich and Andrew Booth Jr. made life difficult for opposing offenses. Booth is regarded as one of the best at his position, while Goodrich has accepted an invitation to compete at the Senior Bowl.
Wide receivers Ajou Ajou and Frank Ladson have entered the transfer portal since the regular season concluded. Justyn Ross has made the announcement that he is off to the NFL after two seasons hampered by injury. Joe Ngata should be the team's leading receiver next season assuming he returns. Ngata is only scratching the surface of what he could become.
Iowa State running back Breece Hall is regarded as one of the best at his position, though he'll miss this game after declaring for the NFL draft. The tight end class lacks a bonafide first-round option, but it is a really deep group that features Charlie Kolar of the Cyclones. He finished this season with 58 receptions for 723 yards and five touchdowns. Kicker Andrew Mevis and linebacker Mike Rose are headed to the Senior Bowl.
Valero Alamo Bowl
No. 14 Oregon 32, No. 16 Oklahoma 47 (Recap)
Oregon will be without wide receiver Devon Williams, edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux and cornerback Mykael Wright - all of whom have opted out of the game and declared for the NFL Draft. Running back CJ Verdell and wide receivers Johnny Johnson III and Jaylon Redd are out due to injury. Wide receiver Mycah Pittman and cornerback DJ James are among those to transfer since Mario Cristobal departed for Coral Gables. The roster is a shell of itself. Safety Verone McKinley III is the best prospect playing for the Ducks. He has shown a lot of versatility in coverage and making plays downhill.
The Sooners will be well-represented in Mobile with defensive tackle Perrion Winfrey, fullback Jeremiah Hall, linebacker Brian Asamoah II and interior offensive lineman Marquis Hayes. Asamoah is a fluid athlete that gets up to speed quickly. Defensive lineman Isaiah Thomas has shown the versatility to play on the edge or kick inside depending upon the situation. He is a heavy-handed prospect that is able to get off blocks. Quarterback Spencer Rattler and tight end Austin Stogner have declared they are transferring to South Carolina.
Tuesday, Dec. 28
TicketSmarter Birmingham Bowl
No. 20 Houston 17, Auburn 13 (Recap)
Houston defensive lineman Logan Hall is long, similar to his former teammate, Payton Turner, who was taken in the first round. Hall is further along in his development than Turner at the same stage. While watching Hall, edge rusher David Anenih kept flashing. Anenih is not the prototypical edge rusher but his production led to an invitation to the Shrine Bowl. Do-it-all cornerback Marcus Jones has announced that he is sitting this one out. He has extensive experience on special teams and plays bigger than his size.
Auburn cornerback Roger McCreary is an incredibly competitive cornerback. He has versatility playing in zone and man coverage. His athletic traits may not match up with some of the other top prospects in the class but teams know what they are buying and McCreary has the goods to be successful. Defensive lineman Colby Wooden is traditionally a bit of a tweener but he has a three-down role in the modern NFL. Linebacker Zakoby McClain and safety Smoke Monday are a few other Tiger prospects of note.
SERVPro First Responder Bowl
Air Force 31, Louisville 28 (Recap)
Air Force defensive tackle Jordan Jackson has great size as an interior rusher. He managed seven sacks this season. Military obligations often make for tricky professional projections, however.
Coming into the year, Louisville linebacker Monty Montgomery and cornerback Kei'Trel Clark were both on my radar but the season ended prematurely for each of them due to knee injuries. The Cardinals largely imported their secondary with Clark (a Liberty transfer), Georgia State safety transfer Kenderick Duncan and Alcorn State safety Qwynterrio Cole. Duncan and Cole are physical enforcers across the middle with great size.
San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl
UCLA vs. No. 18 NC State (Cancelled)
UCLA's offense is loaded with offensive ability. It begins with dual-threat quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson. Running back Zach Charbonnet -- a Michigan transfer -- is patient and displays great balance. Tight end Greg Dulcich can become more physical through his routes but does a nice job of attacking zones. Offensive tackle Sean Rhyan is a controlled blocker that finishes with vigor. He shows great strength and average athletic competency.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Bruins have defensive tackle Otito Ogbonnia and linebacker Mitchell Agude.
N.C. State offensive tackle Ikem Ekwonu is a monster in the ground game that has shown steady improvement in pass protection. Although his highest potential would be reached by sliding inside, Ekwonu has the capability of playing on the edge. With a shortage of quality offensive tackles league-wide, teams can ill afford to move quality options elsewhere. Running back Zonovan Knight is a natural runner that fights through contact. He is perfectly competent as a pass catcher.
AutoZone Liberty Bowl
Mississippi State 7, Texas Tech 34 (Recap)
Mississippi State offensive tackle Charles Cross struggled with his balance last season as he lunged outside of his frame. The sophomore still has some issues with oversetting but shows speed to succeed on the edge and does a good job of adjusting his hands once engaged. Cross has elevated himself into the conversation as one of the first offensive tackles off the board. Cornerback Martin Emerson is a long player but ball production is a concern. He has not recorded an interception since 2019.
Texas Tech wide receiver Erik Ezukanma piqued my interest pre-season. He has great size and an ability to pick up speed effortlessly. His breaks and route-running can improve but the natural athletic gifts are there. Texas wide receiver transfer Joshua Moore recently announced that he would continue his playing career at Texas Tech so that will be a fun duo to watch next year.
Guaranteed Rate Bowl
West Virginia 6, Minnesota 18 (Recap)
West Virginia defensive lineman Dante Stills returned to Morgantown after a relatively disappointing 2020 campaign. He is neither a defensive end nor defensive tackle traditionally speaking, but teams might find him of interest as they search for interior pass rush help. Running back Leddie Brown has been incredibly productive. Brown looks comfortable catching passes and has a natural gate.
Minnesota center John Michael Schmitz elected to return to school after an impressive season. Offensive tackle Daniel Faalele and edge rushers Boye Mafe, Esezi Otomewo have made the decision to move on to other pursuits. All three are slated to take part in the Senior Bowl. Faalele is a massive human being from Australia. He has been pegged as a Day 2 pick dating back to last season. Mafe has some juice around the corner.
Monday, Dec. 27
Quick Lane Bowl
Western Michigan 52, Nevada 24 (Recap)
Western Michigan quarterback Kaleb Eleby is an inconsistent passer with good mobility. He is able to drive the ball to all levels of the field. Edge rusher Ali Fayad does not have the length that NFL teams covet at the position but he was one of the most productive defenders in college football this season. He registered 11.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
Nevada is loaded on offense and the names have been bandied about since the summer. Quarterback Carson Strong is large in stature but lacks mobility. He will have to be an excellent passer to overcome those limitations. He announced that he will skip the bowl game. Tight end Cole Turner is a former wide receiver that plays outside of his frame and attacks the football. He has a claim as one of the best tight ends in this draft class. Wide receiver Romeo Doubs is a good short to intermediate route-runner with an ability to create after the catch. The Wolfpack have a quality pair of offensive linemen in offensive tackle Aaron Frost and center Tyler Orsini.
Military Bowl presented by Peraton
Boston College vs. East Carolina (Cancelled)
Boston College wide receiver Zay Flowers has already announced that he is returning for another season. He had a down campaign after asserting himself as one of the most dynamic skill players after the catch in 2020. Quarterback Phil Jurkovec has also announced that he is returning. The Eagles have leaned on its offensive line over the past few years. Offensive guard Zion Johnson has established himself as one of the best interior prospects in this class. He can do a better job of sinking his hips and absorbing contact.
East Carolina cornerback Ja'Quan McMillian is just a sophomore but he was second among all FBS players with five interceptions. He had seven interceptions over the prior two seasons. Left tackle Justin Chase was in his second season since transferring from N.C. State. He played in the absence of D'Ante Smith, who was drafted in the fourth-round by the Bengals, last season before taking on the role of full-time starter this year.
Saturday, Dec. 25
TaxAct Camellia Bowl
Georgia State 51, Ball State 20 (Recap)
Georgia State sophomore safety Antavious Lane has made big plays for the Panthers this season. He has recorded four interceptions and one forced fumble. All-conference offensive guard Shamarious Gilmore is one of the most experienced prospects in college football.
Ball State quarterback Drew Plitt has good size but average mobility. The Ohio native has been a a three-year plus starter and shows touch in the short to intermediate. Senior wide receivers Justin Hall and Yo'Heinz Tyler have been highly productive players in that Ball State offense. Hall has compiled 318 receptions, 3,385 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns in five seasons. In addition, he has presented his versatility through exposure to the run and return games.
Friday, Dec. 24
EasyPost Hawai'i Bowl
Memphis vs. Hawaii (Cancelled)
Wide receiver Calvin Austin III and offensive guard Dylan Parham will represent Memphis at the Senior Bowl. Austin is an undersized but explosive wide receiver who has topped 1,000 receiving yards each of the past two seasons. Over the course of his career at Memphis, he has averaged 16.3 yards per reception. Parham has disciplined eyes trained to stop loopers and jumpers.
Hawaii running back Calvin Turner Jr. began his collegiate career as a triple-option quarterback at Jacksonville before transferring. Last year, Memphis had a running back by the name of Kenny Gainwell who also spent a lot of time at wide receiver. Turner is a little taller but has similar versatility. Turner had the same number of carries as he did receptions (73). He accumulated roughly 1,200 all-purpose yards.
Thursday, Dec. 23
Frisco Football Classic
North Texas 14, Miami (Ohio) 27 (Recap)
North Texas' Dion Novil is a big interior defender with respectable pass rush production this season. Wide receiver Jyaire Shorter has battled injuries over the past few seasons but is certainly one to watch in the future.
Miami (Ohio) safety Sterling Weatherford and edge rusher Dominique Robinson are headed to the Senior Bowl. Robinson looks light playing as a down edge rusher. He shows good speed and flexibility around the edge but needs to get stronger to hold his own in the run game.
The CBS Sports college football staff offered more analysis from a betting perspective and explained how each team can achieve success.
Union Home Mortgage Gasparilla Bowl
UCF 29, Florida 17 (Recap)
UCF offensive tackle Marcus Tatum is a really athletic lineman with an athletic frame. The Tennessee transfer gets a little off-balance in the run game and can improve marrying his hands and feet. Defensive tackle Kalia Davis shows first-step quickness and a good understanding of leverage.
The Gators made the change from head coach Dan Mullen to Billy Napier after the regular concluded in an effort to salvage their recruiting class. Several players entered the transfer portal, but others will represent Florida in the draft process. Defensive lineman Zachary Carter, edge rusher Jeremiah Moon and running back Dameon Pierce are headed to the Senior Bowl. Pierce was a highly productive player this season. Carter is a bit of a tweener traditionally, but that is a coveted role in the league today. Cornerback Kaiir Elam is often mentioned among the best at his position.
Wednesday, Dec. 22
Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl
Army 24, Missouri 22 (Recap)
Tulsa cornerback transfers Akayleb Evans and Allie Green IV made a big impact for Missouri this season. Evans is a physical player and quarterbacks proceeded at their own risk when making throws to the field. He is headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl despite limited ball production. Defensive tackle Kobie Whiteside had 7.5 sacks in 2019 but has just three in his four other combined seasons. He has to do a better job of holding his gaps because that would seem to be his bread and butter on the next level. Running back Tyler Badie is undersized but otherwise checks all of the boxes. The Tennessee native is a good receiver and fights through contact.
Army linebacker Andre Carter II is a tall drink of water. At 6-foot-7, the Texas native is second among FBS programs in sacks (14.5) and tied for eighth in forced fumbles (4).
Tuesday, Dec. 21
Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl
No. 24 San Diego State 38, UTSA 24 (Recap)
Two Roadrunners are headed to Mobile, Alabama, next month for the Reese's Senior Bowl. Offensive tackle Spencer Burford and cornerback Tariq Woolen will participate in college football's premier professional showcase. Woolen is a lengthy cornerback with limited ball production. He can do a better job of getting his eyes back to the quarterback but his long speed allows him to mirror receivers and recover rather quickly. Safety Rashad Wisdom is undersized but does not play like it. He is a physical player with great range.
San Diego State defensive lineman Cam Thomas has great size and strength. Over the past year, he has improved to the point where some consider him a potential Day 2 draft choice. He registered 10.5 sacks this season. Tight end Daniel Bellinger is also headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. Bellinger can get stronger but he shows an ability to make catches outside of his frame. Running back Greg Bell has good burst and fights through contact. He can improve in pass protection.
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
Wyoming 52, Kent State 38 (Recap)
Kent State quarterback Dustin Crum is a three-year starter for the Golden Flashes. The dual-threat senior from Grafton, Ohio, accounted for 27 total touchdowns this season relative to six interceptions. He is one to watch on Day 3. Wyoming produced linebacker Logan Wilson a few years ago and the Cowboys are back with a key front seven contributor. Linebacker Chad Muma is headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl. Muma has natural movement skills and is able to change directions with ease. He has the traits necessary to be a starter in the NFL.
Monday, Dec. 20
Myrtle Beach Bowl presented by TaxAct
Tulsa 30, Old Dominion 17 (Recap)
Tulsa has a few prospects of note, particularly along the offensive line. Sophomore left tackle Tyler Smith was the recipient of a lot of praise in the preseason, but it was his teammate, right tackle Chris Paul, who recently accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Paul, like Louisiana's Robert Hunt a few years ago, plays on the edge but is projected to move inside. Speed gives him a lot of problems around the corner, but he has good strength to counter bull rushes. Moving inside should correct some of the oversetting issues he has encountered. A Day 2 selection is within range.
Saturday, Dec. 18
R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl
No. 23 Louisiana 36, Marshall 21 (Recap)
Billy Napier accepted the head coaching position at Florida, but that program will produce a few more pros on his way out the door. Offensive lineman Robert Hunt was taken in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The Ragin' Cajuns have a few more offensive linemen coming down the pike. Offensive tackle Max Mitchell is off to the Senior Bowl. Mitchell is a long lineman with good mobility. His neighbor, offensive guard O'Cyrus Torrence, is an NFL caliber player. When the 2020 season began, he was trying to run through defenders rather than engage and marry his feet. As the year progressed, his technique improved. Torrence is a player who looks for work when disengaged and plays to the whistle.
Tayland Humphrey is a big, imposing interior defender. The safety tandem of Percy Butler and Bralen Trahan have made a strong case for draft consideration. Butler has great burst and range but he is inconsistent as a tackler in space.
Marshall has a name familiar to NFL fans. Safety Steven Gilmore is the younger brother of Panthers cornerback Stephon Gilmore. Tall and thin, Steven has registered six interceptions over the past three seasons.
Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl presented by Stifel
Utah State 24, Oregon State 13 (Recap)
Utah State produced first-round quarterback Jordan Love a few years ago, but few have popped onto the radar in 2021. Linebacker AJ Vongphachanh has looked really good in coverage but struggles to get off blocks and has little pass rush production. Oregon State center Nathan Eldridge has accumulated a tremendous amount of experience in his career.
Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl
UAB 31, BYU 28 (Recap)
UAB edge rusher Alex Wright is a long, but filled out prospect. He is quick and able to turn speed into power. His pass rush production does not match the talent, but NFL teams will salivate over his traits.
BYU has a strong offensive line led by left tackle Blake Freeland and center James Empey. Freeland flipped from the right side last year. He is a very athletic player, but he struggles with leverage because of his height. Empey, on the other hand, plays with great leverage. He will lean on opponents in the run game. Tight end Isaac Rex and running back Tyler Allgeier both show traits that suggest they could one day develop into NFL starters.
PUBG Mobile New Mexico Bowl
Fresno State 31, UTEP 24 (Recap)
There is a talent discrepancy in this matchup, as Fresno State brings a lot more to the table this year. Bulldogs quarterback Jake Haener has fought through injuries to deliver his team a few big wins this season. The Washington transfer is a bit undersized but displays great accuracy and leadership.
Running back Ronnie Rivers has taken down nearly every record that the program had entering the season. Rivers has flexible ankles to create opportunities in open space. Wide receiver Jalen Cropper is the team's top draft prospect with Haener returning to school next season. Cropper has a large catch radius and shows great body control allowing him to attack the ball in the air. The California native has footwork at the stem to create leverage.
Cricket Celebration Bowl
South Carolina State 31, Jackson State 10 (Recap)
South Carolina State cornerback Decobie Durant is a long, lean prospect with great ball skills. Over the past four seasons, he has managed to snare 12 interceptions, including three this season. Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders loaded up on transfers in his first season with the program. One of those transfers was senior linebacker James Houston, who has registered 14.5 sacks since coming over from Florida. Even more impressive, Houston has converted seven pass rush opportunities into forced fumbles. He was coached by Patrick Surtain in high school.
RoofClaim.com Boca Raton Bowl
Western Kentucky 59, App State 38 (Recap)
Western Kentucky quarterback Bailey Zappe has been rising in the draft community. The Houston Baptist transfer is calm in the pocket. He shows great accuracy and an understanding of how to lead his receivers. Zappe is headed to the Reese's Senior Bowl in an effort to boost his stock even more.
