Utah junior QB Travis Wilson completed 13 of 18 attempts for 265 yards and one touchdown in the school's 56-14 win over Idaho State.
61 of those yards occurred on a single screen pass, but Wilson completed a nice 48 yard pass on a vertical route. Wilson added a rushing score from two yards out after he helicoptered his way into the end zone. Wilson was considered a future draft prospect and battled back from significant head injuries.
Minnesota redshirt sophomore TE Maxx Williams recorded two catches for 57 yards in the school's 42-20 win over Eastern Illinois.
Williams' first catch was a 25 yard gain in the second quarter, and the second went for 32 yards in the fourth. Despite only being a redshirt sophomore, Williams is absolutely a prospect worth watching. He could be a top three draft-eligible tight end.
Arizona State senior QB Taylor Kelly completed 18 of 27 attempts for 238 yards and one touchdown in the school's 45-14 win over Weber State.
We do not feel that Kelly has an NFL future (despite many saying otherwise), but he definitely produces at the college level. Arizona State's offense is one to watch, thanks to redshirt junior receiver Jaelen Strong and running back D.J. Foster.
Arizona State redshirt junior WR Jaelen Strong caught 10 passes for 146 yards in the school's 45-14 win over Weber State.
Multiple evaluators list Strong among their top five receivers, and this was a solid start to the season. One 26 yard pass along sideline saw Strong box out his opponent and win at the catch point after climbing the ladder. In fact Strong displayed high pointing ability on multiple grabs. One beat writer noted that Strong was in better shape this season, and it showed in his performance.
Arizona State junior RB D.J. Foster logged 147 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries in the school's 45-14 win over Weber State.
He added 26 yards on four receptions, at least one of which was while split out as a receiver and not just out of the backfield. Foster's most inspiring run occurred in the third quarter, with the running back starting out of the off-set I, spinning out of tackles at the second level and outrunning the defense for a 57 yard score. Foster is just another name to remember in the loaded 2015 running back class.
Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell caught seven passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in the school's 35-13 win over Boise State.
Treadwell reportedly added 15 pounds of muscle this offseason and it showed in his game. Bo Wallace frequently allowed Treadwell to get downfield against man coverage, lob it up and allow his receiver to win at the catch point. He is not draft eligible, but Treadwell is a name to watch on a talented Ole Miss team.
Boise State redshirt junior RB Jay Ajayi rushed for 86 yards on 20 carries and added 93 receiving yards and a touchdown on 12 receptions in the school's 35-13 loss to Ole Miss.
Ajayi did fumble in the first quarter, which some believe is his biggest weakness, but Boise State recovered it. The 12 receptions really stand out, as NFL teams continue to look for running backs with receiving ability. The 2015 class is loaded at running back, and Ajayi might be another piece.
Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace completed 25 of 36 attempts for 387 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions, in the school's 35-13 opening win versus Boise State.
Wallace had a rough start, throwing three interceptions in the first half of play. The Ole Miss prospect failed to look off defenders, locking on his targets, while not following through on his progressions. For about 2 1/2 quarters the Rebels' offense struggled to separate from Boise State, but put together consecutive scoring drives in the fourth quarter to pull away with a victory. Moving forward, Wallace will need to improve his play if he plans to impress evaluators.
