The top Pac-12 freshman are loaded with new incoming talent this year. Oregon led the way with the top-ranked recruiting class in the Pac-12. The Pac-12 freshman are on the following teams, Oregon, Washington, USC, Stanford, and Arizona State also had strong Classes as well.
Kayvon Thibodeaux DE Oregon
Thibodeaux is the Number 2 ranked player in the 247sports rankings. He has the speed and athleticism to be terrific edge rusher for the Ducks. Thibodeaux is 6’5 and weighs 240 pounds. The star defensive end will need to get a little bigger to handle the offensive tackles in college football. Once Thibodeaux adds weight, he should be elite pass rusher for Oregon, and a high first-round draft pick some day.
Jayden Daniels QB Arizona State
Jayden Daniels is the number two dual-threat quarterback in the country. The Sun Devils quarterback position is an open competition, and Daniels could be in line to win it. Daniels played well in spring practice to emerge as a contender for the starting job. I like Daniels starting this season for the Sun Devils because opposing teams will be keying on running back Eno Benjamin. Doing this should free Daniels up to make plays with his legs and his arm.
Kyle Ford WR USC
Ford was one the top receivers out west; he should help USC tremendously. Although coming off an ACL injury in 2019, Ford’s route running and being able to win one on one battles will help the Trojans big time. Jack Sears and JT Daniels have another reliable target to throw to this season.
Mykael Wright CB Oregon
Wright is an elite cornerback, who probably will not start right away. Oregon has two third-year starters in Deommodore Lenoir and Thomas Graham. But i still see Wright getting playing time; he has too much talent to sit on the bench, he probably will see time as the nickel back.
Drake Jackson DE USC
Jackson has mad quite the impression at spring practice for USC. He made a one-handed interception that he returned for a touchdown in the spring practice. Jackson will help a defensive line that struggled last season sacking the quarterback. The Trojans had 29 sacks good for 49th in the nation. Jackson had drawn comparisons to former USC Trojan Leonard Williams.
