NFL Network’s Chad Reuter has compiled a list of players he believes are the top dogs in college football’s sophomore class. Unsurprisingly, three Buckeyes are in the top five, while only two players in the top 10 are from the PAC-12; Stanford’s TE Austin Hooper and Arizona’s QB Anu Solomon (Reuter’s pick to receive All-American honors in 2016).
A graduate of Bishop Gorman High School (NV) – bringing four high school state championships home – Anu Solomon gave reason for NFL scouts to jot him down and put Solomon on the radar.
Thankfully, Solomon will be in good hands this season since most of his on-field support is returning.
Chad Reuter’s excerpt on eighth-ranked sophomore, Anu Solomon:
“Solomon put Pac-12 defensive coordinators on notice last season with more than 4,000 combined passing and rushing yards. If he improves his ability to find a second or third target from the pocket using his intriguing combination of arm strength and a deft touch — in addition to making plays with his feet – he’ll be an All-American candidate in 2016.”
