Once again Morris is terrorizing opponents
12:20PM- Week five riser Mike Morris of Michigan continues to wreak havoc, this Saturday against Indiana. Most exciting about Morris and his pass rush ability is the versatility he displays. Last week Morris was consistently blowing up Iowa’s game plans out of a three point stance. Just now he stopped Indiana in their tracks, rushing the passer out of a three point stance. TP
The struggles continue for Boutte
12:20PM- While many of the offensive struggles for Kayshon Boutte are coming off the arm of his quarterback Jayden Daniels, the receiver has not played well this season. Boutte is not making plays people expected and he’s dropping a lot of catchable throws- as we just saw. Too many passes are slipping through his hands and while they may not be pinpoint accurate passes, they are catchable balls. TP
Another Challenge for Aidan O’Connell
The Purdue Boilermakers travel to College Park, Maryland for a meeting with the Terrapins in an all important Big 10 match-up. Multiple times tis season I’ve written about Purdue quarterback Aidan O’Connell, who’s played reasonably well after being graded by some scouts as a day two prospect. After facing the tough secondaries of Syracuse and Minnesota the past two weeks, O’Connell has another difficult challenge against Maryland.
The Terps presently have a pair of next level corners who are both playing well. Jakorian Bennett entered the season with late round grades on my board but is having a terrific campaign with 6 PBU’s. The team’s other corner, Banks Deonte, is having a Nick Cross type of season, i.e., he’s a day two prospect few are paying attention too. Banks has no INT’s and a pair of PBU’s this season but that’s primarily because opponents have not thrown in his direction.
Michigan takes on Indiana in Bloomington for what’s likely to be a tough day for the Hoosiers. IU has four defenders to keep an eye on, senior prospects having good seasons that will be challenged by the Wolverines.
Linebacker Cam Jones leads the team with 54 tackles in five games. Jones is a small but explosive run and chase linebacker with a 7th round grade on my board.
Corners Tiawan Mullen and Jaylin Williams as well as safety Devon Matthews all grade slightly higher as they are 6th round prospects. The ball production has been a bit disappointing this season, though Williams leads the team with 4 PBU’s, but the trio have been a big part of holding opponents to just over 275 yards passing per game.
