Week One of the college football season is in the books and there a tons of storylines from the opening week. I want to focus on a few players who stood out to me, especially those who should be draft eligible at the end of the season. Feel free to add players in the comments that stood out that you think can help the team.
Will Levis, QB - Kentucky
A transfer from Penn State, Levis had a great debut for the Wildcats. The senior quarterback went 18 of 26 for 367 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. What was impressive was his ability connect deep with his receivers. While they were playing UL-Monroe, Levis is definitely a player to keep an eye on throughout the season.
Ellis Brooks, LB - Penn State
Brandon Smith might be Penn State's best linebacker, but Ellis Brooks made the most impact in their win over Wisconsin. Calling the defense from his middle linebacker position, the redshirt senior had 11 tackles and a sack before being ejected for a questionable targeting call.
Chase Campbell, LB - Ole Miss
A senior transfer from Maryland, Campbell looks to shore up an Ole Miss defense that was one of the worst last season. They got off to a good start in their win against Louisville in large part because of Campbell's play. He often spied athletic Louisville's mobile quarterback, Malik Cunningham, on his way to amassing seven tackles and one and half tackles for loss.
Deontai Williams, S - Nebraska
I have not seen Williams play much, but he had a productive week against Fordham. The senior safety had two interceptions to go along with four tackles. He appears to play deep safety for the Cornhuskers and isn't shy about coming up to make a hit. He'll need to improve his tackling, however, if he wants to be considered a top safety prospect.
