Indiana wide receivers to test Ohio State CB Shaun Wade
The fun starts at noon, as a pair of top-10 Big Ten teams square off. The Indiana-Ohio State contest offers plenty of battles for scouts to watch, the most prominent being Indiana wide receiver Ty Fryfogle — a Week 11 riser — and his teammate Whop Philyor battling Buckeyes cornerback Shaun Wade.
Fryfogle is off to a great start, and Philyor is well-liked in the scouting community. Wade is expected to be a first-round selection.
Nevada QB Carson Strong in the spotlight
Nevada quarterback Carson Strong, a name still met with shrugged shoulders in the scouting community despite his great season, takes college football’s national stage in Week 12 against San Diego State on Saturday afternoon.
Strong, a quarterback prospect I pegged as a future first-round pick, has been unstoppable since the season’s first game against Wyoming. The Aztecs have several next-level prospects in the secondary, including safeties Tariq Thompson and Dwayne Johnson Jr. This will be the toughest test yet for Nevada’s redshirt sophomore quarterback. The postponement of the Ole Miss-Texas A&M game allowed CBS to move this Mountain West contest to the national stage.
WR Tylan Wallace vs CB Tre Brown a matchup scouts will be eyeing
The interstate rivalry between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State kicks off a week earlier than usual, but it still offers some exciting next-level matchups.
OSU receiver Tylan Wallace keeps playing better and better since returning from the injury that sidelined him for most of 2019. His main opponent will be cornerback Tre Brown, who’s getting a lot of chatter in the scouting community.
Brown is a shorter corner at 5-foot-9, but he’s tough and has next-level ball skills. In seven games this season, Brown has two interceptions and three pass breakups.
