Coastal Carolina Chanticleers College Football Preview 2021: Top Players
Best Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Offensive Player
QB Grayson McCall, Soph.
Well that went well. McCall was a decent recruit for the program in 2019 and saw a little bit of time, and then he took over the gig going into 2020 and … kaboom.
He hit 69% of his passes for 2,488 yards and 26 touchdowns with three picks, and he was second on the team with 569 rushing yards with seven scores. The 6-3, 200-pounder has good size, a live arm, and he showed he’s a perfect fit for the attack.
2. WR Jaivon Heiligh, Sr.
3. TE Isaiah Likely, Sr.
4. OG Willie Lampkin, Soph.
5. OG Trey Carter, Sr.
Best Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Defensive Player
DT CJ Brewer, Sr.
Several Chanticleers could be considered the Best Defensive Player, but all-star defensive tackles are worth just a wee bit more – they’re tough to find. Brewer isn’t massive, but the 6-2, 280-pounder can more than hold his own while also being an active playmaker in the backfield. He came up with 60 tackles with 6.5 sacks and 11 tackles for loss – expect more of the same.
2. LB Silas Kelly, Sr.
3. CB D’Jordan Strong, Sr.
4. DE Jeffrey Gunter, Sr.
5. LB Teddy Gallagher, Sr.
Top Incoming Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Transfer
DE Emmanuel Johnson, Soph.
No one’s expecting anyone to step in and be another Tarron Jackson at defensive end, and Coastal Carolina has several options to work on the other side of Jeffrey Gunter, but landing the 6-6, 265-pound Johnson from Georgia Tech is a big help for the depth. The Chanticleers got a big prospect for the next few years.
