Devy Watch: WR Anthony Ratliff-Williams, UNC July 12, 2018

Anthony Ratliff-Williams was an electrifying dual-threat quarterback in high school. As a college fantasy football player, it’s pretty disappointing that we never got to see him play QB in Chapel Hill. We’ve gotten glimpses of him on trick plays but n...

Devy Watch: WR Cody Thompson, Toledo June 29, 2018

Cody Thompson is the most recent confoundingly under-recruited player in my summer profile series. He was a do-it-all two-star-recruit from Huron, Ohio. His high school highlights are quite enjoyable. He played wide receiver as a sophomore, catching 48 pa...

Devy Watch: RB Shakif Seymour, Toledo June 25, 2018

Shakif La’paris Nyrobi Seymour is a running back from Cleveland, Ohio. Hilariously, Holy Name is where he played his high school ball. Most of his friends call him “Fish” so I’m going with that if I ever get the chance to meet him. As a senior in ...

Devy Watch: RB Jonathan Ward, Central Michigan June 21, 2018

Some players sneak up on me. That’s part of what makes college football so fun. I have no idea who they are and then “BOOM” they emerge and make their presence felt. Jonathan Ward is one such example. It was early November in 2017, and I remember wa...

If the saying, “Adversity builds character” is true, then it should come as no surprise that Hakeem Butler is truly an exceptional young man. For fans of the HBO’s show, The Wire, you will have some context for what life may be like for a young Afri...

Devy Watch: RB A.J. Dillon, Boston College June 14, 2018

This is the appropriate place to start with AJ Dillon. He’s a grown man. Not sure about you, but we still can't get over this stiff-arm by @BCFootball running back AJ Dillon. 💪 pic.twitter.com/9ENsDAjYpP — ACC Digital Network (@theACCDN) Oc...

Devy Watch: WR CeeDee Lamb, Oklahoma June 11, 2018

“CeeDee Lamb is a very, very talented natural athlete. He’s a guy that just kind of has that ‘it’ factor on the outside as a receiver… You talk about ball skills being able to go up in the air and get the ball and attack it. He&#...

Devy Watch: RB Mulbah Car, Houston June 7, 2018

“Only 5 when he left Liberia, Car only remembers what his mother, Oretha, told him. How he ran away from his father, who had custody and lived on the streets for a month before being reunited with his mother. How he, his mother and younger sister, ...

Devy Watch: WR Antonio Gandy-Golden, Liberty June 2, 2018

SEC Spring ‘18: LSU April 21, 2018

Quarterback Few positions have been as disappointing as the LSU QBs over the past decade. History tells me to skip this section altogether and get right to the RBs and the defense. Instead of using a bunch of my own words, I’m going to borrow from Billy...
