10D’Eriq King, QB, Houston
King was not a highly recruited player (he was only a three-star prospect), but the No. 18 ranked athlete in the class of 2016 has become a stunningly effective quarterback in Houston. Against No. 21 South Florida earlier this season, King totaled an insane 551 yards of total offense as he single-handedly led the Cougars to a 57-36 win.
King was a big player as Houston ran through the AAC towards the title game before a knee injury took him out for the season in Mid-November.
