6. DB Andrew Mukuba, Clemson

The skinny: While Clemson didn’t have the season he expected, Mukuba’s game wowed fans for its future. With a total of 46 tackles, two tackles per loss, one sack and numerous break-up passes, he appears to be the future leader of the defensive unit in Death Valley.

Farrell’s opinion: Mukuba was a Rivals250 obtained for Clemson from Texas and was ready to play ahead of schedule. It made a huge impact and provided a leadership role down the line.

5. RB Braelon Allen, Wisconsin

The skinny: Considering Allen didn’t become a significant part of the offense until game four of the season, his performance in 2021 was even more impressive. Finishing with 1,109 yards and 12 touchdowns, averaging 7.1 yards per carry, Allen has the potential to become Wisconsin’s next great running back.

Farrell’s opinion: Allen is a monster. He sped through high school, was recruited as a linebacker and then moved on to running back, and is now the next star of the Wisconsin offense. He has a chance to be a 2,000-yard runner.

4. WR Xavier Worthy, Texas

The skinny: Worthy came to Texas knowing there would be an immediate opportunity for playing time considering the need for directors in the position. He responded by leading the team into receptions (63), receiving yards (998) and receiving touchdowns (12). His total of yards and touchdowns led to the Big 12.

Farrell’s opinion: The Californian sprinter may be number 1 on this list as his deep play ability was a must for the Texas offense. He is already an absolute star.
