Sport 5 players who should have stayed in college
Grayson Allen’s return gives college basketball the villain it desperately needed
A great day for college basketball.With Allen returning for his senior season, Duke gets its senior star, and college basketball gets a unifying target of hatred. We wouldn't have it any other way.
The stock market can be a fickle thing. On one day a certain stock can go up, while the next it comes crashing down.
With the 2017 NFL Draft now over, here are five players who misplayed their draft stock, and should have returned to their respective schools for an extra season:
1. Jerod Evans, QB, Virginia Tech
Coming toas a junior college transfer, quarterback Jerod Evans burst onto the scene, leading the Hokies to a 10-4 record. Following the season, Evans scratched many heads by declaring after just one season in Blacksburg and ended up not even being drafted. In fact, Sam Rogers, a fullback from Virginia Tech was taken in the sixth round, the second-highest Hokie drafted.
11 Alcorn State players arrested after campus brawl
Eleven Alcorn State University football players have been arrested after authorities say a fight broke out on the school's Mississippi campus.News outlets reports Claiborne County Sheriff Frank Davis says charges have been filed against each of the players by other students, and more arrests are likely to be made Thursday.
2. Brad Kaaya, QB, Miami (FL)
Some were surprisedquarterback Brad Kaaya declared for the NFL draft early, especially with many thinking the Hurricanes would be able to compete for a College Football Playoff berth in 2017. However, more people were surprised when Kaaya dropped to the sixth round and saw eight other quarterbacks picked ahead of the former Miami signal-caller. A chance at a national championship seems a lot more enticing now.
3. Elijah Hood, RB, North Carolina
Back in December,running back Elijah Hood announced he would return for his senior season in Chapel Hill. Then just two weeks later he changed course and instead declared for the draft. However, come draft time, Hood would not hear his name until the seventh round. To make matters worse, Hood wasn't even the first running back taken from North Carolina, as T.J. Logan went two rounds earlier.
College student killed during hammer throw at track meet
A college student has died after being struck during a hammer-throw event at a track meet in suburban Chicago. WHEATON, Ill. (AP) A college student has died after being struck during a hammer-throw event at a t Wheaton College officials say 19-year-old student Ethan Roser of Cincinnati was volunteering at a track and field competition at the school Saturday when he was accidentally struck by a hammer.The hammer used in such competitions is a metal ball attached to a steel wire. The athlete holds a grip at the other end of the wire and spins several times before releasing it.
4. Damien Mama, OG, USC
was arguably the hottest team by season's end in 2016, winning nine straight games and a Rose Bowl for the ages. With a top Heisman candidate on the roster in quarterback Sam Darnold and a need for veteran offensive linemen, it seemed guard Damien Mama would be the leader of the group. Instead, Mama declared early and went undrafted while the Trojans gear up for a College Football Playoff run.
5. Malachi Dupre, WR, LSU
The No. 1 wide receiver in the 2014 recruiting class and the 17th overall player went to run-heavyand it showed as Malachi Dupre never topped 1,000 yards receiving in his career as a Tiger, let alone 700. Instead of staying to play in Matt Canada's versatile offense under new head coach Ed Orgeron, Dupre elected to skip his senior season and proceeded to get drafted in the seventh round.
NFL Draft Verdict on the Big 12: The League Sucks
That the Big 12 is (and was) a predictable dead end comprised of a host of remoras firmly attached to a Texas fish gasping for big league perceptual oxygen should surprise no reader of this blog. I spelled out all of the arguments many times when this was coming to a head years ago and Texas had a real chance to reshape the college football landscape. Or simply just look out for itself and set a bold vision that rewarded fans and institution alike.Go West. Go North. Go East.
Speedy Noil, WR,- Undrafted
Ricky Seals-Jones, WR, Texas A&M, Undrafted
