CFN 2016 Preseason Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year

RB Samaje Perine, Jr. Oklahoma

Put Sooner QB Baker Mayfield No. 1A when it comes to preseason accolades, but watch out for Perine to breakout and be the league’s biggest star. He hasn’t received the hype compared to all the phenomenal running back talent across the country, but he’s got the compact, tough style and quickness the do even more in the upgraded OU attack.

LB Malik Jefferson, Soph. Texas

The hype is starting to crank up for the superstar recruit who looks and plays the part of an unstoppable machine who can do a little of everything. Can he stay in one piece? He’s not huge, but he can fly and work in a hybrid role coming off a 61-tackle, 2.5-sack season – get ready for his production to jump in Year Two.
