Could Justice Hill be the Raven’s best back?:

The Ravens have a crowded backfield, but despite that Justice Hill has the opportunity to be the guy at running back for the Ravens. Brian Baldinger of the NFL Network shows some plays from hill that highlight his potential in the league.

Tylan Wallace makes list of most important players in the CFB Playoff chase:

ESPN’s Bill Connelly list Oklahoma State’s Tylan Wallace as No.24 on his list of the top-25 important players in the CFB Playoff chase.

As a sophomore, Wallace had 546 receiving yards at the end of September, and while his production had almost nowhere to go but down from there, he excelled in the biggest games, combining for 20 catches, 442 yards and four scores against Texas and Oklahoma. Even with the Cowboys breaking in another another new starting QB, Wallace can take the lid off almost any defense. {ESPN}

High praise for true freshman Thomas Harper:

Freshman cornerback Thomas Harper has had his coaches and teammates talking. The Stillwater Newspress highlighted Harper and what they’re saying.

“The most exciting thing for me about Thomas is that he is low maintenance,” cornerbacks coach Tim Duffie said right before the start of fall camp. “He came here when he should have been at his prom and was here this spring. He didn’t miss a beat.”

The 5-ft-11, 165-pound cornerback was a two-way player at Karns, hauling in 1,086 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns during his junior year – the first player in school history to surpass the 1,000-yard mark – and repeated his offensive numbers his senior season with 1,279 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns. {Stillwater Newspress}
