Quarterbacks showed out week 2, with quite a few breakout performers but we're highlighting an unheralded interior Sun Devil.
Renell Wren, DT, Arizona St
Wren first jumped out on tape to me last year when, lined at NT, he chased down a ballcarrier 40yds downfield. Week 2 vs Michigan St he jumped off the los again and again, proving way too much for their interior to handle. Final stats were modest but Wren wrecked them all game.
Kellen Mond, QB, Texas A&M
Mond isn't draft eligible this year as a true sophomore but had a big time coming out game vs one of the most heralded defenses in the nation. Always possessing athletic tools and talent, Mond was more precise in this one finishing with 430yds on 57.5% with 3TDs and 0 ints, adding 33 more yards rushing.
Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
Murray followed an impressive debut week 1 with an equally impressive showing vs UCLA. It might be time to rethink that baseball agreement because Murray is showing legit Sunday capability. His accuracy and poise in the pocket has been remarkable and he's an explosive threat as a runner.
Terry Wilson Jr, QB, Kentucky
Dual threat Sophomore Wilson keyed a resounding victory vs Florida week 2 with 151yds passing with 2TDs and 105yds rushing with another TD. He made clutch throws and runs throughout.
Gardner Minshew, QB, Washington St
East Carolina junior transfer Minshew has an awful name but an emerging solid game. He stood out vs San Jose St week 2 and was the difference in the win. He finished with 34-51, 66.7% for 414yds and 3 TDs with 2 ints. And he added 32yds rushing with a TD.
D'Andre Baker, CB , Georgia
Baker's rounding out to be the top CB in this class. He followed a solid showing week 1 vs South Carolina with another dominant showing week 2. As long as he tests like he appears on the field, he's CB#1.
Laviska Shenault Jr, WR, Colorado
Following an explosive debut week 1, Shenault kept it rolling vs Nebraska en route to 10 catches for 177yds and 2 TDs. Built like a RB, Shenault has blazing speed and sticky hands.
