CGS Showcase Standouts for week 9! Which players tore it up week 9

College Gridiron Showcase is just a few weeks away and one player that continues to catch the eye of our owner is Merrimack’s wide out Marquis Spence.

Kaleb Barker, QB, Troy – Are you kidding me? This kid was on fire week 9. He has 2,091 yards on the year and 18 touchdowns, but this past week he had a field day against Georgia State. He finished the game with 421 yards passing, and was 34-45 with 2 touchdowns.  The 6010 quarterback from Decatur, Alabama had himself a week.

Tra Barnett, RB, Georgia State – The same game as Barker, Barnett could not be stopped by the Troy defense. I put both of them because this was a high powered offensive game. There was little defense but Barnett was a dog. He ran for a season high 242 yards and scored twice.  The senior back from Elberton, Georgia had himself a game and caught the eye of our scouts.

Jauan Jennings, WR, Tennessee – The Vols are not the best team in the SEC, but they may have one of the draft’s biggest sleepers. I love Jauan Jennings from Tennessee, this kid is 6030 and is a big time play maker. On the season he has 652 yards and 7 touchdowns, and this week he had 174 yards receiving and 2 touchdowns against the South Carolina Gamecoks.

Michael Bandy, WR, San Diego – I am sold on this kid, you do not have to tell me anything else on this kid. Bandy is a future NFL player. He finished with 194 yards week 9 on 9 receptions and scored twice.  Bandy is not the biggest wide out but the kid is dangerous.  He has that it factor NFL teams are looking for.

Marquis Spence, WR, Merrimack – Yes, this kid is growing on me.  He had another 100 yard game receiving week 9.  I am a fan of his and the kid continues to make plays week after week.  He finished with 12 receptions for 118 yards and 1 touchdown. I want him at the CGS game, I feel he will shine there.
