Which college football freshmen are ready to step into starting positions?

It is obvious that there are a handful of freshmen around the country who are ready to step into starting positions. Can they lead their teams to the College Football Playoffs in 2020?

Bryce Young, Quarterback, Alabama

Alabama has seen another great quarterback leave campus for the NFL this offseason. Tua Tagovailoa will be a top pick in the NFL Draft but his departure leaves a void at the position in Tuscaloosa. Enter Bryce Young, a five-star freshman recruit, who has all the tools to wrestle away the starting job from potential starter Mac Jones. Although Jones deputized for Tagovailoa last season when the starter was injured, Young’s skillset could see him usurp Jones in the race to be No. 1. Spring practice will see the two go toe to toe for the starting quarterback position.

Elias Ricks, cornerback, LSU

LSU has become one of the top schools around the country when it comes to developing NFL ready cornerbacks. Elias Ricks could be the next great shut-down cornerback produced in Baton Rogue. The 6ft 2in cornerback is likely to snatch one of the starting positions for the Tigers. The opposite side will be manned by returning player Derek Stingley. The Tigers’ defense is likely to be better next season with Ricks manning the flanks and that is a scary thought.

Rakim Jarrett, WR, Maryland

Wide receiver Rakim Jarrett has been hyped to the hilt this offseason. The Maryland freshman has a lot to live up but could come good in 2020. Jarrett should improve Maryland’s woeful pass offense from last season. The Terps were 114th in passing in 2019 and Jarrett goes into spring practice on par in terms of skills with the team’s existing wideouts Dontay Demus Jr and Jeshaun Jones.

MarShawn Lloyd, RB, South Carolina

MarShawn Lloyd should have the keys to the backfield at South Carolina in 2020. South Carolina lost three senior running backs at the end of last season. Lloyd will walk onto campus in Columbia with all of the changes in the world to earn the starting position. It is the perfect scenario for a freshman and could have been part of the recruiting tools used by the Gamecocks. Lloyd was ranked as the No. 42 high school prospect and simply has two sophomore running backs in front of him on the depth chart.
