Highlighting the best with a line from the one and only Chris Farley, welcome to this season’s Good, Great, Grand, Wonderful!
For all 133 teams, head over to College Football’s Best of 2023.
Good: Mazin Richards, DT
Pressuring quarterbacks from the inside will always be more valuable than edge pressure and Mazin Richards does that so well. He’s recorded a sack, but that doesn’t indicate the total amount of times he’s landed home with pressure and influential plays against the opponent’s passing game.
Great: Ethan Miner, C
The Mean Green center is terrific in pass protection but that’s not where you’ll find his highlights. On the ground, Ethan Miner is dominant, clearing the way at the first and oftentimes, the second level.
Grand: Chandler Rogers, QB
Despite some early success through the air from Stone Earle, the Mean Green have been sparked by the emergence of Chandler Rogers in the backfield. As he continues to develop and hone in on his downfield passing, he’s a dynamic rusher and a great ball distributor for this North Texas offense.
Wonderful: Ja’Mori Maclin, WR
A big-play threat, Ja’Mori Maclin simply needs the ball launched in the air, and he’ll track it down and make something happen. With just 11 receptions, he’s the team leader with 238 yards and four touchdowns through the air.
