In conjunction with our College Football’s Best series, highlighting the top plays, players, highlights, and moments from all 133 teams, we’re here to showcase the best the USF Bulls have had to offer in 2023. Who has stood out? What units are turning heads?
And who from South Florida is among the top mentions in our College Football’s Best series this season?
USF Bulls Best of 2023
At College Football Network, we watch every game. Every player. Every team. And our notebooks are chock full of top players, plays, highlights, and moments. Today, I’m emptying the notebook.
Below, find USF’s noteworthy players, groupings, or units, all listed under a different category: good, great, grand, or wonderful. Every team across the country has put forth their best efforts in 2023, and through four weeks of action, those players deserve notoriety for what they’ve put forth this season.
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: Donovan Jennings, LT
The big man at left tackle has been doing this for years, yet it looks like Donovan Jennings is just getting started. In his sixth year with the program, Jennings has been a South Florida staple along the left side.
He’s moving well on the run and providing clean pockets more often than not.
Great: Naiem Simmons/Byrum Brown, WR/QB
Forging perhaps a scary duo in Week 4, if Naiem Simmons and Byrum Brown keep up this level of play, we’ll be talking about them in a much brighter light later this year.
Brown has run for 357 on the ground and thrown for 885, improving his passing skills, it appears each week (save for the ‘Bama game). Simmons blew up in Week 4 and has 357 receiving yards now.
Grand: Logan Berryhill, S
Leading the way with two interceptions, Logan Berryhill has flown around with precision in 2023. He’s broken up another two passes and chipped in with a handful of plays around the line of scrimmage.
Wonderful: Daquan Evans, DB
His impact against Alabama should be enough to reach legendary status around campus. Daquan Evans has recorded three sacks, all of which came against Alabama, as he’s stalked the opposing offense brilliantly off the edge.
In coverage, Evans has also locked down and has a pass breakup and a few more forced incompletions.
