Middle Tennessee sophomore WR Ty Lee caught five passes for 39 yards in a 35-30 victory on Saturday over Arkansas State in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl.

It's a quiet finale for Lee (5'9/163), but he still played a factor in the Blue Raiders pulling out the bowl win. He finishes the year just short of both 80 catches (79) and a thousand yard season (965). Lee was easily the most consistent offensive weapon for MTSU in 2017, and he's shown the versatility to lineup as a wideout, catch the ball out of the backfield, and even spent some time at running back in 2017. He's a potential breakout star for the 2018 season.

Arkansas State junior WR Justin McInnis snagged seven passes for 107 yards and scored a touchdown in a 35-30 loss to Middle Tennessee in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl on Saturday.

McInnis's touchdown was a 20-yard strike from Justice Hansen that brought the Red Wolves back into the game at 28-18. He made several other big catches on the night, but it wasn't enough. The 6-foot-6, 202-pound junior from Quebec excelled late in the year, with over 400 of his 693 yards coming in the last three games. With his size, he's certain to get draft looks in 2019, and he'll start the year near the top of watch lists for wideouts in the Sun Belt.

Arkansas State redshirt junior QB Justice Hansen completed 31-of-57 passes for 337 yards and three scores with one touchdown in a 35-30 loss to Middle Tennessee State in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl on Saturday.

Hansen (6'4/207) also rushed for 32 yards on 17 carries with a touchdown. The only reason the Red Wolves were in this game was the star junior quarterback, but they just couldn't do enough on defense to win the game. The redshirt junior took big strides forward in 2017, and draft analysts took notice. He ranks 12th on NFL Draft Scout's list of top quarterbacks for the 2018 class, but another step forward could see him take a big jump up, especially with his size and ability to make plays with his legs.
Dec 17 - 12:17 AM

Middle Tennessee sophomore RB Terrelle West ran for 65 yards and a score on ten carries in a 35-30 victory over Arkansas State in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl on Saturday.

Most of West's damage was done on one run, but when that one run is a 45-yard touchdown in a bowl game, you'll probably take it. Outside of that run, the Blue Raiders' run game was held in check. West wasn't a big part of the offense to start the year -- or even in the middle -- but was effective in his late-season carries, and the sophomore tailback should be due for many more touches in the 2018 season.

Middle Tennessee redshirt junior QB Brent Stockstill completed 19-of-35 passes for 232 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in a 35-30 victory over Arkansas State on Saturday in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl.

It wasn't always pretty for Stockstill, but he did enough for the Blue Raiders to win on Saturday night. The turnovers were particularly ugly, as they kept the Red Wolves in the game. He also had a few gorgeous passes, including a back-shoulder throw on third down late in the game that allowed MTSU to use much of the clock. Stockstill missed much of the year with injuries, and even when healthy, it was an inconsistent season. He's still one of the more talented quarterbacks coming back in Conference-USA, and if healthy, he should lead the Blue Raiders to another bowl game next season.

Four-star 2018 WR Tyquan Thornton decommitted from Florida and has verbally committed to Baylor.

It's the second four-star player to decommit from Florida this week, as quarterback Matt Corral also flipped his commitment to Ole Miss. Thornton ranks 57th on the Scout.com wide receiver list, and ranked just outside of the top 300 at 307. With Baylor coming off a 1-11 season, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound wideout is a candidate for immediate playing time.

Sam Houston State senior QB Jeremiah Briscoe completed 29-of-51 passes for 289 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions in a 55-13 loss to North Dakota State on Saturday in the FCS playoffs.

Briscoe has some of the best passing numbers in the country -- FCS or FBS -- but really struggled against the powerhouse that is the North Dakota State Bison. This game was over at halftime, with the Bison leading the Bearkats 41-3 after 30 minutes. Even with the poor game, Briscoe still ranks as the top FCS quarterback prospect in the country, and if he tests well, he has a chance to be drafted. This will be a game he'll likely want to forget, however, and won't help his draft stock.

South Dakota State senior TE Dallas Goedert hauled in five passes for 43 yards with a touchdown in a 51-16 loss to James Madison on Saturday in the FCS playoffs.

Goedert (6'4/260) had a decent day in the box score, but was mostly held in check by the impressive JMU defense. His score came with SDSU trailing 51-10, but it was an impressive 10-yard fade route where he showed off his impressive length and ability to high-point the football. Goedert will next be seen in the Senior Bowl, and a strong outing in those practices and the game could see him rank as the top tight end prospect in the country.

Four-star 2018 CB Josh Jobe has verbally committed to play at Alabama after decommitting from Miami (FL).

Jobe (6'0/178) picks the Crimson Tide over the Hurricanes and a wealth of other SEC and ACC offers. 247 Sports rates him the 13th best cornerback in the country, and 95th overall. Reports say that Jobe has excellent instincts along with his impressive measurables, but could be a candidate to move to safety because of a lack of to-end speed.

Marshall junior QB Chase Litton completed 17-of-32 passes for 262 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 31-28 win over Colorado State in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

After a scoreless first quarter, the 6-foot-6, 232-pound Litton finally got things revved -- and in dramatic fashion at that -- when he connected with Tyre Brady for a 76-yard touchdown. He's proven incredibly consistent throughout his career, having now thrown for at least 23 touchdowns in each of his first three seasons at Marshall. He could potentially crack Day 2 should he declare for the draft, but there's some fluidity to that stock profile. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell passes along that Litton is a "love/hate prospect, depending on whom you ask."
Dec 16 - 9:09 PM

Colorado State senior QB Nick Stevens completed 25-of-52 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-28 loss to Marshall in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

Stevens tried his darnedest to lead the Rams to a late comeback after they fell behind 31-14 entering the fourth quarter, but it just wasn't to be. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder passed for 3,804 yards with a 29/10 TD/INT ratio for the campaign as a whole. The All-Mountain West first-teamer will be heading off to the East-West Shrine Game now that he's called it a collegiate career. At this juncture, he should be viewed as a likely undrafted free agent come the spring even despite what's been a stellar close to his time at Colorado State.
Dec 16 - 9:00 PM

Marshall redshirt junior WR Tyre Brady (undisclosed) caught six passes for 165 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-28 win over Colorado State in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

Brady (6'3/204) missed the final two games of the regular-season campaign due to his undisclosed injury concern, but showed no limitation in helping to down the Rams on Saturday. He's done a lovely job on the whole when healthy this season, finishing the year the owner of a 62-942-eight receiving line. Brady is eligible to declare for the draft, but there's been no rumblings of a jump at this juncture. He'll be gunning for his first career 1,000-yard campaign in 2018 assuming he returns to the Thundering Herd.
Dec 16 - 8:51 PM

Minnesota redshirt sophomore QB Demry Croft is transferring to Tennessee State.

Croft made the announcement on Twitter. The redshirt sophomore quarterback started the last six games of the season for the Gophers, and completed just 42 percent of his passes while throwing four touchdowns and six interceptions. Because he's transferring to an FCS team, he'll be eligible to play immediately.
Dec 16 - 8:45 PM

Colorado State senior WR Michael Gallup caught six passes for 68 yards in Saturday's 31-28 loss to Marshall in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

Gallup (6'1/203) almost had himself a brilliant touchdown grab in the fourth quarter, but that was overturned on replay when it was determined that he was unable to get his foot down in bounds. For the campaign, the senior received Pro Football Focus' highest grade for any draft-eligible wideout. Draft Analyst's Chris Tripodi notes that the prolific receiver "plays physical football and knows how to use his size and strength to his advantage both as a receiver and running after the catch." While the outlet currently stamps Gallup with a fifth-round grade, he could catapult toward the late Day 2 conversation with a strong evaluating process. The Senior Bowl awaits him in January as he begins prep for his professional career.
Dec 16 - 8:44 PM

Marshall redshirt senior RB Keion Davis rushed for 141 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in Saturday's 31-28 win over Colorado State in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

Both Davis and Tyler King topped 100 yards on the ground in what was a nice, balanced effort by the Thundering Herd. Overall, the 6-foot-1, 214-pounder turned in 812 yards rushing and six touchdowns in what finished as a career-best year for the redshirt senior. He'll likely have to find his way into the pros as an undrafted free agent, but will try to impress during the evaluating process this winter.
