08/18/17 - Keller Chryst, rJr/2019, Stanford, 6-4, 237 (DS#15 QB)[Newsfeed] QB Keller Chryst tore his ACL in the Sun Bowl against North Carolina last year, but he recovered well enough to be named the opening-game starter by head coach David Shaw early in camp. He was 6-0 as the starter last season.
08/18/17 - Dedrick Mills, So/2020, Georgia Tech, 5-10, 217 (DS#14 RB)[Newsfeed] RB Dedrick Mills, a sophomore, was dismissed from the Georgia Tech football team on Friday for violating team rules. Mills, the top B-back on the roster, was the top returning rusher for the Yellow Jackets. He compiled 771 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns as a freshman in 2016. Mills served two suspensions last season for a total of three games.
08/18/17 - Devin Asiasi, So/2020, UCLA, 6-3, 287 (DS#999 TE)[Newsfeed] TE Devin Asiasi, a transfer from Michigan, will likely have to sit out this season despite UCLA's appeal to the NCAA that he be eligible this season because of his limited playing time last season with the Wolverines (two receptions for 18 yards) playing behind Big Ten Tight End of the Year Jake Butt.
08/18/17 - Dechaun Holiday, /2019, UCLA, 6-2, 207 (DS#5 ATH)[Newsfeed] LB DeChaun Holiday missed early practices of fall camp after having surgery on his shoulder in April. He is expected to practice with the Bruins before the end of camp.
08/18/17 - Josh Rosen, Jr/2019, UCLA, 6-3, 220 (DS#1 QB)[Newsfeed] QB Josh Rosen must adapt to the schemes of new offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, whose faster pace should help the potential high NFL Draft pick unload the ball before getting sacked. Look for the Rosen-to-Darren Andrews connection to be one of the best in the Pac-12. Rosen said he knows Andrews, a fifth-year senior receiver, is "going to be at the right place at the right time" and that they have built a chemistry.
08/18/17 - Kyrin Priester, Sr/2018, Washington State, 6-1, 194 (DS#999 WR)[Newsfeed] WR Kyrin Priester was dismissed from the Cougars for the second time because of an undisclosed violation of team rules. Priester originally played for Clemson but he was dismissed from that program during his freshman season reportedly because of friction with the Tigers' coaching staff.
08/18/17 - Joshua Talbott, /2021, Washington State, 6-0, 180 (DS# DB)[Newsfeed] S Josh Talbott will compete for a starting role despite being in his first season of college football. The 6-foot freshman is known for his ability to read routes. He has tremendous closing speed on receivers. He is also physical with the ability to shed blocks.
08/18/17 - Tavares Martin Jr., Jr/2019, Washington State, 6-0, 182 (DS#56 WR)[Newsfeed] WR Tavares Martin is ready to become QB Luke Falk's primary target in Mike Leach's Air Raid offense. Martin's 64 receptions for 728 yards and seven touchdowns last season was a noted increase from 2015, when he had 16 catches for 124 yards and one touchdown in 2015.
08/18/17 - Bryce Perkins, /2019, Arizona State, 6-3, 205 (DS#20 QB)[Newsfeed] QB Bryce Perkins, who challenged for playing time at that position entering the 2016 season, has transferred to Arizona Western College with the hopes of signing with an FBS school after this season.
08/18/17 - Alex Perry, /2021, Arizona State, 5-10, 165 (DS# DB)[Newsfeed] CB Alex Perry is a heralded recruit from powerhouse Las Vegas Bishop Gorman High School who should see immediate playing time for ASU's woeful secondary, especially with the transfer of Kareem Orr to Tennessee-Chattanooga. Perry was part of a Bishop Gorman program that ranked No. 1 nationally in 2016 by USA Today. "He's a guy that does nothing but win championships," ASU coach Todd Graham said.
08/18/17 - John Humphrey, So/2019, Arizona State, 5-11, 170 (DS#67 WR)[Newsfeed] WR John Humphrey, a speedy Oklahoma transfer (4.3 seconds in the 40), was one of the stars of the spring, catching three touchdown passes in the spring game, including two for more than 35 yards. Humphrey is eager to show what he can do in his third year of college without playing a snap yet in a live game (redshirting at Oklahoma in 2015 and sitting out last year per NCAA transfer rules).
08/18/17 - Tyrell Crosby, Sr/2018, Oregon, 6-5, 310 (DS#7 OT)[Newsfeed] LT Tyrell Crosby is healthy and back to bolster the offensive line. After missing all but two games last year with a season-ending injury, Crosby has been named to the Outland Trophy watch list this year, given annually to the nation's best interior lineman.
08/18/17 - Thomas Graham, /2021, Oregon, 5-10, 173 (DS# DB)[Newsfeed] DB Thomas Graham Jr. has been one of two breakout stars so far in fall camp (DL Jordan Scott being the other). Oregon had one of the worst passing defenses in the nation last year, so the play of Graham Jr. will be important to monitor. The freshman has proven that he's not afraid to play against the best, often lining up against Mitchell, Carrington or Nelson in fall camp drills. If Graham Jr. can provide stability to Oregon's back line, look for more turnovers and energy throughout the defense.
08/18/17 - Dillon Mitchell, Fr/2020, Oregon, 6-3, 301 (DS#999 WR)[Newsfeed] WR Dillon Mitchell has had a strong fall camp and his production will be the talk of the season. Oregon lost its top wide receiver when Darren Carrington was kicked off the team after a DUI arrest, so somebody must take his place -- and Mitchell is that guy. After displaying unreal athleticism in the 2016 spring game, Oregon fans have been waiting to see Mitchell in action and now they'll get their chance. Look for Mitchell to use his size (6-1, 180) to take advantage of play-action passes and lead Oregon in receiving throughout the year.
08/18/17 - Royce Freeman, Sr/2018, Oregon, 5-10, 231 (DS#2 RB)[Newsfeed] RB Royce Freeman had an All-American campaign as a sophomore, when he ran for 1,836 yards and scored 19 touchdowns. Last year was one that Freeman would like to forget, as his injury-plagued junior season ended with 945 yards and nine touchdowns, both career-lows. Coach Willie Taggart has already made it clear that the Ducks are going to feed Freeman the ball as much as possible, and if he produces like his first two years as a Duck, look for Oregon to return to a bowl game.
08/18/17 - Hunter Bryant, /2021, Washington, 6-3, 235 (DS# TE)[Newsfeed] TE Hunter Bryant, a true freshman, is physically ready to make an immediate contribution -- at least as a pass-catcher. The 6-foot-2, 239-pound Bryant caught 56 passes for 979 yards and 10 touchdowns as a high school senior while earning all-state honors in Washington. Bryant is battling junior Drew Sample for the starting tight end job.
08/18/17 - Jordan Miller, Jr/2019, Washington, 6-1, 176 (DS#34 CB)[Newsfeed] CB Jordan Miller -- Washington needs to replace two standout cornerbacks, and this junior is being counted on to be a difference-maker. Miller is one of the fastest players in the program and has two career interceptions as a backup; he has looked at ease under his new role throughout fall camp. The Huskies led the Pac-12 with 19 interceptions last season and Miller's development could help the defense defend that title.
08/18/17 - Jake Browning, Jr/2019, Washington, 6-1, 209 (DS#7 QB)[Newsfeed] QB Jake Browning sensitivity about his offseason shoulder surgery makes it clear he knows deep inside that the program is highly dependent on his health. "If it was my left shoulder, no one would care," Browning said of the surgery. "Since it was my right, even I'm focused on it a little more, but it's just more to make sure I get back to where I need to be and be even better than it used to be."
