NCAA Football Week 5 Prospect Match-Ups

By: Justin Walters @SportsRuckus

West Virginia @ Oklahoma

  • Shell RB Shepherd WR
  • Worley CB Striker Edge
  • Joseph S Tapper DE
  • Dillon S Alexander LB
  • Nwachuku DE Sanchez CB

West Virginia has an underrated secondary, full of NFL prospects. Worley vs Shepherd could be worth the price of admission. The 2 safeties have no problem knocking someone’s head off. Something to watch is the continued improvement of Karl Joseph in coverage.

Texas at TCU

  • Gray RB Boykin QB
  • Hughes OT Green RB
  • Ridgeway DT Doctson WR
  • Haines S Vaitai OT
  • Thomas CB Hunt C

The TCU trio faces a tough Texas D. Boykin and Doctson are a lethal combination on the deep ball and Green is a shifty all purpose back who can take it to the house.

Notre Dame @ Clemson

  • Procise RB Gallman RB
  • Fuller WR Peake WR
  • Stanley OT Reader DT
  • Day DT Lawson DE
  • Smith LB Alexander CB
  • Russell CB Kearse S

The matchup to watch is Notre Dame deep threat Will Fuller vs Clemson’s emerging lockdown corner MacKenzie Alexander. Alexander had a few issues in coverage last week but Louisville was unable to make him pay. ND will provide a real test.

Baylor @ Texas Tech

  • Russell QB Washington RB
  • Linwood RB Grant WR
  • Coleman WR Clark OT
  • Drango OT Jackson DT
  • Billings DT Robertson Edge
  • Oakman DE

In what will most likely be an offensive shootout Baylor will be hoping DL Andrew Billings and Shawn Oakman can disrupt Texas Techs passing game and be the difference.

Alabama @Georgia

  • Henry RB Mitchell WR
  • Drake RB Theus OT
  • Howard TE Rome TE
  • Robinson DT Floyd Edge
  • Allen DE Jenkins Edge
  • Ragland LB Mauger S

In a battle of running games Alabama’s stout group of DL Ashawn Robinson, Jonathan Allen, and Jarran Reed will look to clog the run lanes which will then be filled by hard hitting LBs Reggie Ragland, Ruben Foster, and Denzel Deval. Stopping Georgia’s deep stable of RBs.

Ole Miss @ Florida

  • Treadwell WR Taylor RB
  • Core WR Robinson WR
  • Engram TE Bullard DL
  • Nkemdiche DE/DT Morrison LB
  • Johnson LB Hargreaves CB
  • Elston S Poole CB

In what could be one if the best individual matchups of the year Florida’s elite cornerback Vernon Hargreaves looks to stop Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell. Treadwell will struggle to separate from Hargreaves on the ground but where he can win is by using his size and excellent ability at the catch point.

Miss St @ Texas A&M

  • Prescott QB Carson RB
  • Wilson WR Reynolds WR
  • Jones DT Seals-Jones WR
  • Redmond CB Ifedi OT
  • Calhoun CB Hall Edge

Texas A&M’s depth at the WR position led by the steady Josh Reynolds & physical Ricky Seals-Jones face off against Mississippi St. CBs the athletic Will Redmond & feisty Taveze Calhoun. The Mississippi St. CBs will also be tested by explosive freshman Christian Kirk who may be the best player in this whole game.
