College Football: ACC Top Players To Watch
The ACC is home of National Champions, the Clemson Tigers. Clemson has won the past four ACC titles. The only teams that could challenge Clemson are the Virginia Cavaliers and maybe the Miami Hurricanes. That’s only if the Hurricanes can play consistently good football. The ACC is Clemson’s conference to lose. Here are some of the players to watch in the ACC.
Trevor Lawrence Quarterback Clemson
In Trevor Lawrence first full season as a starter, he should build on the numbers he put up last year. Lawrence became the full-time starter in week five last season. He Threw 3,280 yards, 30 touchdowns, and just four interceptions. Also, Lawrence helped lead Clemson to the National Title. The Clemson star is poised for a big season in his first full year as a starter.
Travis Etienne Running Back Clemson
As a sophomore last season, Travis Etienne ran for 1,658 yards and 24 touchdowns. Also, he averaged an outstanding 8.1 yards per rush. Clemson has other running backs to share the load with Etienne, so it may make his yardage numbers go down, but he will be fresh and still may put up big numbers.
AJ Dillion Running Back Boston College
AJ Dillion is a big, physical running back who also has some breakaway speed. He is not afraid to run an opposing defender over. Last season. Dillion ran for 1,108 rushing yards 10 touchdowns while missing two games. Dillion will get the ball a lot for Boston College this season, so be on the lookout for him.
Alton Robinson Defensive End Syracuse
Alton Robinson is coming off a season where he had ten sacks and 17 tackles for a loss. Also, he had three forced fumbles. He will be looking to build on last season numbers. Robinson is athletic and will shoot up NFL teams draft boards.
Bryce Hall Cornerback Virginia
Bryce Hall led the nation in pass breakups with 21 last season. Also, he had two interceptions. Hall is the ACC’s best cover corner. Hall has NFL speed and size; he leads Virginia’s ball-hawking secondary.
