2009's Top Five Under The Radar College Football Players From the South
This list is South/SEC oriented because those are the teams I watch the most. Please feel free to add your own players in the comments section.
They won't let me publish this article unless this introduction is at least 300 characters long. I don't know why the intro has to be this long.
You can just skip this part and go right to the slideshow if you want. Hopefully, they will fix this in the future because it is really wasting my time to type this.
1. Alshon Jeffery, WR South Carolina
True freshman with 24 catches for 443 yards and five TD’s through six games.
6’3” 225 lbs.
Was heavily recruited by the other USC but chose to stay close to home.
Alshom Jefferies is the third all-world wide receiver to come out of the state of South Carolina in the last five years after Sidney Rice and A.J. Green.
2. Anthony Allen, RB Georgia Tech
Allen's getting lost in all the attention Johnathan Dwyer and Josh Nesbitt are getting. Reminds me of Dallas’ Marion Barber. Both are 6’0” 230 lbs.
3. Roy Upchurch, RB Alabama
Awesome back, but can’t take snaps away from Mark Ingram.
4. Kyle Parker QB Clemson
6”0” with his boots on, but big time arm. Looks like a gamer.
Let’s not get too excited. Defenses may adjust to him, like they did McElroy at Alabama.
5. Randall Cobb WR Kentucky
When’s the last time a player returned a punt for a TD and passed for a TD in the same game? Randall Cobb almost did it last week, when he just barely over led a receiver in the end zone.
He still completed two passes for 46 yards.
He has 800 all purpose yards through seven games. He passes and runs out of the wildcat, returns punts, and oh yeah, he’s their leading wide receiver too.
