[NCAA] Week 7 – Jalin Hyatt takes off

Every Sunday, the editorial staff of DNA of Sports offers you an update on university players. Who performed well and who disappointed? Here is a weekly focused on the individual performances of future NFL players. Only players eligible for the 2023 draft are listed here.

On the program for week 7 of college soccermany big posters including a duel of undefeated teams in Tennessee between the Flights and the Crimson Tide of Alabama in SEC. Same thing in Big 12 between Oklahoma State and TCU and in Big Ten East with the clash Michigan – Penn State.

Finally, the Pac-12 is also in the spotlight with the clash between the undefeated USC Trojans and the Utah Utes.

quarterback of the week

This 2023 promotion is rich in quarterbacks. The opportunity to focus on a player in this position.

Cameron Rising (QB, Utah): 30/44, 415 yards, 2 touchdowns – 11 carries, 60 yards, 3 touchdowns

Cameron Rising had a hard time dealing with a USC defense coming off a successful game against Washington State. After an average 1st period where he often looked for the big win with his arm, he behaved like a good quarterback manager to lead the Utes to one of the upsets of the week.

Besides being a good passer, he can also run. The proof with the 2-point conversion which gives the victory 43-42 to his team where he breaks 2 tackles, the first defeat of USC. A 4-star rookie in 2018, he could take advantage of the average performance of his competitors to earn a place in the 3rd round next April.


  • Bryce Young (QB, Alabama): 35/52, 455 yards, 2 TDs
  • Hendon Hooker (QB, Tennessee): 21/30, 385 yards, 5 TDs, 1 INT
  • Michael Penix Jr. (QB, Washington): 36/44, 516 yards, 5 TDs (including 1 on the ground)
  • KJ Jefferson (QB, Arkansas): 29/40, 367 yards, 5 touchdowns
  • John Rhys Plumlee (QB, UCF): 18/22, 373 yards, 4 TDs – 7 carries, 37 yards, 3 TDs

In the game of the week between Alabama and Tennessee, how can we not mention quarterbacks Bryce Young and Hendon Hooker? If the Alabama player sometimes ran for his life (9 pressures from Tennessee) and saved his team, Hooker was clutch by delivering the pass allowing Tennessee to put the winning field goal (see later). If Bryce Young is sure to be a first round, Hendon Hooker must also be one even if his age will be a brake (25 years old at the time of the 2023 draft).

Other quarterbacks have distinguished themselves, including Michael Penix Jr., who has a powerful and precise left arm. College record 500+ yards and win over rivals Arizona. KJ Jefferson sinks BYU with a performance worthy of a magician. Career-best 5 passing touchdowns and footwork that hurt a BYU defense that didn’t see the light of day.

Finally, we do not know if he will have a future in the NFL but he scored 7 touchdowns (including 3 on the ground), the Knight John Rhys Plumlee completely dominated Temple’s defense with 70 points scored.

Offensive Player of the Week

Jalin Hyatt (WR, TN): 6 receptions, 207 yards, 5 touchdowns

It was his day. And his connection with Hendon Hooker is getting better week by week, even year by year. After 2 discreet first seasons, the receiver of 1.83m has already broken his career record for a season in receptions. Already author of 2 touchdowns against LSU last week, he did it again against Alabama with 5 touchdowns.

A 2020 4-star rookie, Jalin Hyatt could run this year or wait until next year. Since the cuvée is ultimately not so high in quality, it could try its luck next April.


  • Dalton Kincaid (TE, Utah): 16 receptions, 234 yards, 1 TD
  • Quentin Johnston (WR, TCU): 8 receptions, 180 yards, 1 TD
  • Zach Evans (RB, Ole Miss): 21 carries, 136 yards, 2 TDs
  • Tank Bigsby (RB, Auburn): 20 carries, 179 yards, 2 TDs
  • Eric Gray (RB, Oklahoma): 20 carries, 176 yards, 2 TDs
  • Olu Fashanu (OT, Penn State)

Behind Michael Mayer, Dalton Kincaid may have secured a place in the first 3 rounds. In addition to good hands, he is also an excellent blocker. It was he who made the key block during the touchdown in 4th & goal from Cameron Rising to allow Utah to come back up to USC at the end of the game.

TCU wide receiver Quentin Johnston put out another quality game in the 43-40 win over Oklahoma State. He scored in extra time to keep his team unbeaten in the Big 12.

Another game that spotlighted the Runners, Ole Miss vs. Auburn. If Ole Miss’s Zach Evans still put 1 touchdown on the ground for a 6th game in a row, Tank Bigsby finally achieved a benchmark game with his season record in terms of yards. The 2 riders are still candidates for the night from Friday to Saturday (2nd and 3rd round).

Another candidate, Eric Gray, the runner wakes up the Sooners with his best performance of the season allowing Oklahoma to achieve one of the upsets of the weekend against Kansas (52-42).

Finally, facing Michigan’s terrible defense, the young Nittany Lions Olu Fashanu did rather well. Despite the heavy defeat of his team, the offensive tackle was decisive on the run of his quarterback Sean Clifford to allow his team to equalize. If his technique is still to be refined, his mobility is astonishing. Its potential is frightening. He is only 19 years old and can therefore claim a 1st round.

Defensive Player of the Week

Myles Murphy (EDGE, Clemson): 6 tackles (including 3.5 for loss), 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble

It is often said that great players change a game. That’s what Myles Murphy did. With the score at 17-14 in favor of Clemson, he sacks and forces a fumble from Jordan Travis and allows Clemson to win the ball back. An action that rocked the game and allowed DJ Uiagalelei to score a touchdown in the race to widen the gap. All this just before half-time.

In addition, on the restart, Will Shipley managed a kick return from more than 60 yards and allowed DJ Uiagalelei to find Dennis Allen in the end zone to widen a larger gap. But it was all triggered by the edge rusher, expected to top 10 next April. Clemson remains undefeated this season.


  • AJ Finley (S, Ole Miss): 8 tackles, 1 interception
  • Kenny Logan Jr. (S, Kansas): 14 tackles, 1 interception
  • Christopher Smith (S, Georgia): 5 tackles, 2 covered fumbles
  • Emmanuel Forbes (CB, Mississippi State): 2 tackles, 1 interception for 1 touchdown
  • Nick Herbig (EDGE, Wisconsin): 6 tackles (including 2.5 for loss), 1 sack

Those are the defensive backs who have the honors this week. We start with AJ Finley from Ole Miss. Author of a good season, he made an interception worthy of a receiver. His name could be heard on the night from Friday to Saturday (rounds 2 and 3). Kenny Logan Jr. confirms with his interception and a stop just before halftime 1 yard from the end zone so as not to allow Oklahoma to widen the gap a little more.

We could cite the entire secondary school of Georgia which made fanny Vanderbilt but honor to Christopher Smith. The safety of the bulldogs covers 2 fumbles including 1 following a tackle from the other Smith, Tykee. Emmanuel Forbes put a new pick six against Kentucky and Will Levis. This is his 5th since he started his college career.

Finally, in addition to Myles Murphy, we could have mentioned Brenton Cox Jr. from Florida or even Jacoby Windmon from Michigan State, but we will talk about Nick Herbig. Able to play as an outside linebacker at 3-4 or an edge rusher at 4-3, he changed the game as Wisconsin failed to put pressure on the Michigan State Spartans’ offensive line.

Despite the overtime loss, his performance deserves credit with a 16th career sack. He’s one step closer to a top-50 selection if he continues to be consistent.

Disappointments of the week

  • Jordan Battle (S, Alabama): 7 tackles
  • Isaiah Foskey (EDGE, Notre Dame): 2 tackles, 1 pressure
  • Rakim Jarrett (WR, Maryland): 1 reception, 12 yards

Defensive leader of Alabama’s secondary, Jordan Battle missed his game (like the rest of Alabama’s defense). Late for three quarters of the game, including the final reception of Tennessee, he did not reassure NFL recruiters about his ability to be decisive.

Isaiah Foskey was transparent in the loss of the Fighting Irish against Stanford when they had not won a match against a Division 1 team (FBS-I) for 1 year.

Rakim Jarrett was expected as one of the revelations of the year 2022 in the NCAA. So far, after an injury-plagued start to the season, the Maryland receiver hasn’t recovered and is an enigma at the moment. In addition, his quarterback Taulia Tagovialoa was injured. He must therefore be more decisive if he does not want to see his price drop.

action of the week

This crazy match couldn’t end otherwise. A poster that has kept all its promises where the conclusion is beautiful for Tennessee, which remains undefeated but cruel for Alabama, which therefore concedes its first defeat of the season.

A match to watch or/and watch again!

The other action of the week

A one-handed interception, you don’t see that every day. And yet, that’s what CJ Coldon of Oklahoma realized.

Bonus of the week

A history of punters and coming from the same country, Australia. Indeed, respective Oklahoma State and TCU punters, Tom Hutton and Jordy Sandy, were colleagues at the same paper mill making envelopes in Australia before moving to the United States. They worked together on the same paper machine, the winder Jagenberg Vari-Dur.

They spent about 2 hours a day on the road talking about their common passions, among them college football. Together they participated in a program in Australia called prokickcreated by Nathan Chapman, ex-punter of the Packers and Bears in order to prepare punters and kickers at the level college soccer even NFL.

Having passed their exam in 2019, the 2 punters have therefore joined the university level. What should also be noted is their age. Indeed, Tom Hutton is 32 years old and Jordy Sandy is 29.

A great story that turned to the advantage of Jordy Sandy who equalized at 2-2 in their direct confrontations.
