The Sporting News has come up with what they believe are the Top 25 Players going into 2013. Of course if you follow College Football you know that Johnny Manziel from Texas A&M is at the top of the list. South Carolina’s Monster on Defense Mr. Clowney is in at #4. Several Ducks on Offense made the list including Quarterback Marcus Mariota at #14. Junior do-it-all player De’Anthony Thomas came in at #22.
My big question is why no one from Oregon’s Defense made the list? Former Oregon running back Lache Seastrunk, now with Baylor even made the list at #18.
There were other players from the Pac 12 on the list including USC Wideout Marquise Lee(2), Arizona State Defensive Tackle Will Sutton(6), UCLA Linebacker Anthony Barr(8), Arizona Running Back Ka’Deem Carey(20), and UCLA Quarterback Brett Hundley(23).
There are plenty of Big Ten and SEC names on the list as well including Ohio State QB Braxton Miller and Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel – which is noted was the one who overshadowed Mariota’s stellar Freshman season.
