3. TOP UTEP PLAYERS

Best UTEP Offensive Player

QB Kai Locksley, Sr. 
If he can stay in one piece – he had ankle issues last year – and if he can get a little bit of blocking, he should be a difference-maker for defenses to worry about on a weekly basis.

The former JUCO superstar and son of Maryland head coach Mike Locksley only hit 49% of his passes with three touchdowns and nine picks, and he ran for 340 yards and six touchdowns, but the skills are there to make the passing game night-and-day better.

4. WR Keynan Foster, Sr.
5. RB Deion Hankins, Fr.

Best UTEP Defensive Player

DT Denzel Chukwukelu, Sr. 
The 6-4, 290-pound veteran was okay as part of the mix in his first two seasons, and then last year he turned into one of the bright spots on the Miner D. Quick off the ball, he can get into the backfield with two sacks and 6.5 tackles for loss last season to go along with 42 stops, and he’s able to block kicks. Now he’s the anchor to work around.
