Week Eleven of college football has come and gone. I watched four games during the slate of contests.
I will look back each week at the top prospect performances from the games I watched the previous week.
WEEK ELEVEN PROSPECT REWIND
AKRON @ MIAMI (OH)
There wasn’t much, prospect-wise, to speak of from the Akron Zips side. However, the Miami Redhawks have two worth mentioning.
Miami RB Rashad Amos has come on this season after struggling to get onto the field at South Carolina. Amos is a big back (6’2″ 227). He isn’t a blazer but can pick up chunk yardage. Amos didn’t offer much as a receiver in this game and struggled as a pass-blocker.
4th-year IOL John Young has a nice size (6’6″ 302) but can be overpowered up the middle. It would be nice to see him use his length a little more. He is not expected to be in this draft class.
VIRGINIA @ LOUISVILLE
Virginia hasn’t had a lot of luck this season and didn’t have many players stand out. One who did was 5th-year WR Malik Washington. Washington came over from Northwestern before 2023. He showed great body control and route running against Louisville in the loss. Washington is destined for the slot in the NFL with his size (5’8″ 194). He finished the game with nine catches (11 targets) for 155 yards and a score.
Louisville edge rusher Ashton Gillotte is a menace to the Cardinals’ defense. He has flashed all season and continued to dominate. Gillotte speeds around the edge with little resistance. If he were to enter the draft this year (3rd year) he would likely have to stand up at linebacker (6’4″ 220). Gillotte had seven tackles, 1.5 sacks, and recovered a fumble against the Hoos.
UL has a pair of running backs that are going to find their way onto NFL rosters. Jawhar Jordan is the more undersized of the pair (5’10” 180) but is the more polished runner. Jordan excels at getting wide, making one cut, and getting up the field. He has dealt with some injuries lately but seemed back in this game. Jordan finished with 19 touches for 110 yards.
His backfield partner, Isaac Guerendo, is a home run hitter. Despite being the bigger of the two (6’1″ 225), Guerendo has that extra gear in the open field. He could find himself in the mix to be drafted late (or as a UDFA) and make his way onto a roster next fall. Guerendo had seven touches for 125 yards, including the game-sealing 73-yard touchdown run.
WYOMING @ UNLV
UNLV WR Ricky White has emerged as a big play threat this season. Playing with multiple QBs in OC Brennan Marion’s Go-Go offense, White has produced nearly every week. The 6’1″ 190-pound fourth-year pass catcher caught eight balls for 144 yards and scored against Wyoming. White catches the ball away from his body well. He also does a great job running after the catch.
YALE @ PRINCETON
It is rare that I only watch a game to see offensive tackles play but here we are.
For Princeton, it was OT Jalen Travis (6’7″ 310). The 5th-year player is athletic but seems to struggle with power. Especially when dealing with a bull rush. You can see how nice his feet are. Travis could be a nice developmental prospect.
Yale OT Jonathan Mendoze is like a human eclipse. The 6’8″ 315-pound prospect just mauls defenders in the run game. Mendoze isn’t flashy in his pass sets and will need a ton of work there. He is another player that could be worth development.
The top prospect in this game would have been Yale OT Kiran Amegadjie. Unfortunately, he was injured earlier this year and lost for the season.
Am I going to rank South Carolina RB Mario Anderson in my preseason 2025 NFL Draft Top 5 at this position? Yes…Yes, I am.

I didn’t get to watch much of Chop Robinson a few weeks ago. It’s good to him back wrecking shop.

Rome Odunze is WR2!
The Michael Penix Jr/Rome Odunze connection remains undefeated?
