In the spirit of the offseason, I’m going to take some inspiration from this tweet from Pro Football Focus College and turn it into a post.

Name an up-and-coming player who you think will be a household name by the end of the college football season.
What Minnesota Football player will be a household name after this season?
Note that I tried to leave “up and coming” out of it since I didn’t want to define that concept. Personally I’d skip by Mitch and a few other Gophers who I think are pretty well known, but everyone is free to suggest whoever they want.
My answer? Shannon Brooks, because I running back is a position that gets noticed and Brooks has the ability to reel off some highlight moments.
Who is your pick for a new household name?
