This week's edition of college football prospects to keep an eye on is finally here. In case you missed it, here's last week's version of the series. Quite a few players from last week's list went on to have big games, such as OT Jackson Carman, CB Derion Kendrick, QB Mac Jones, and WR Kadarius Toney.
I like to start off with highlighting player's from this week's game of the week first. This week, that'll be Georgia vs Alabama if the game is played as scheduled. It was just recently announced Alabama head coach Nick Saban has tested positive for COVID 19. The game hasn't been postponed at the time this article was published.
Game of the Week: Georgia vs Alabama
EDGE Azeez Ojulari Georgia
The redshirt sophomore started the second half of last week's game with a strip-sack on Tennessee’s first possession in the second half. Ojulari was all over the field with five tackles, two forced fumbles, and two sacks. He was named SEC defensive lineman of the week after his solid performance.
He's a big reason why Georgia's defense is off to a fantastic start. They're giving up just 236.7 yards per game and only have allowed 115 rushing yards. They have the best run defense in the country this season by far. This week will be a big test for their defense against Najee Harris and Alabama.
LB Dylan Moses Alabama
Moses missed last season due to a torn ACL and was widely considered the best off ball linebacker in all of college football prior to his injury, but he's struggling to start the season. Some rust should be expected to start after not playing for a full season, but he's looked a bit lost out there so far. We're only 3 games into the season, so it's a bit too early to panic, but Moses will fall hard if he continues to play at this level. A strong game on the big stage against Georgia would help after his poor performance last week.
Watch Moses in the clip below. He looks nothing like the star I remember seeing in 2018.
