College Football News Preview 2020: Top Houston Cougars Players
Best Houston Cougars Offensive Player
WR Marquez Stevenson, Sr.
The 6-0, 190-pounder missed all of his 2017 season hurt after missing almost all of 2016 banged up. Fine in 2018, he caught 75 passes for 1,019 yards and nine scores while becoming a whale of a kick returner.
Last year he dropped to 52 grabs, but he made more big plays and became more dangerous. With tremendous speed and quickness, get the ball his way and he’ll average more than 17 yards per catch.
2. RB Mulbah Car, Sr.
3. RB Kyle Porter, Sr.
4. WR Jeremy Singleton, Jr.
5. QB Clayton Tune, Jr.
Best Houston Cougars Defensive Player
S Grant Stuard, Sr.
A special teamer who got in a few carries in his first two seasons, Stuard found his niche and role last year as a hitting machine who led the team with 97 tackles with a sack, 9.5 tackles for loss, and four broken up passes. He’s part linebacker and part safety in the 4-2-5 alignment with great athleticism and range. If he stays in one piece, he’ll be a lock for 100 tackles.
2. CB Damarion Williams. Sr.
3. S Gervarrius Owens, Jr.
4. LB Donavan Mutin, Jr.
5. DE Payton Turner, Sr.
