TOP FB RECRUIT NEWS
In most recent Top FB recruit news, we shift our focus towards our 2020 All-American Bowl recruits at College Football Today. Our 2020 All-American OT recruit Chez Jennings Jr has updated his end of season highlight's from the Taft School in Connecticut and had a glorious season on the gridiron. Jennings Jr graded out extremely highly in our STEP ratings, as he showed an innate ability to blow defenders off of the football from the offensive guard position. After making the transition to offensive tackle at the Taft School, Chez proved he was an extremely versatile offensive linemen and provided stellar protection off of the edge. He demonstrated great technique and you will very rarely see his 6'6,320LB frame lose ground. Jennings Jr is a high academic recruit and has received interest from Big 12, Ivy League, MAC, ACC and a slew of others across the landscape of College Football Today. Chez's jounrey has been well documented at Scout Trout Elite and you can find his Top O-Linemen recruit profile by clicking HERE!
TOP FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top football recruits at Scout Trout Elite & College Football Today feature an array of talent that fits well in most college style systems at the next level. It also features recruits from the Juco/Prep level, all the way down to the 2023 recruiting class. Top Prep/Juco RB recruit at Scout Trout Elite Michael Floyd reportedly has received 23 offers at the D2/D3 & NAIA levels and has accumulated major FCS interest. Coming out of Spring Garden High School in Alabama, Floyd was one of the toughest runners I had seen on tape and you can view his footage below. After a season at Birmingham Prep, Floyd is capable of big things at the next level, as he proves to be an aggressive downhill runner and can carry a heavy workload for a college football team.

We will have on Michael Floyd coming soon at Scout Trout Elite, check out his recruiting profile by clicking HERE!
TOP 2021 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top 2021 football recruits at College Football Today will be getting a major overhaul, as we have placed some recruits out of position. Not at first, but recruits like Paul Czachorowski out of First State Military Academy in Delaware fit more of a top ATH recruit mold. Not taking away anything from Paul's play as a Quarterback, but he uses outstanding instincts and overall athletics as a defensive back to make game changing plays. Czachorowski is one of those players who can line up anywhere on the offensive side of the football and simply excels on the defense, as well as special teams. He is an outstanding tackler as a safety and at any given moment is able to create turnovers. This quick witted athlete makes one heck of a defensive back, as he is able to keenly read the opposing teams quarterback to make quick decisions on the football. Read Paulie's initial scouting report at Scout Trout Elite by clicking HERE and watch his junior season highlight's below.
TOP 2022 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top 2022 football recruits is also about to be re-vamped, as top 2022 QB recruit BJ Higgins had arguably one of the best seasons at the helm of First Baptist Academy in Dallas,Texas. Higgins is one of the hardest working young men in the 2022 recruiting class and it surely paid off this past season. If you are in the market for a 2022 QB who exudes leadership qualities beyond his years, look no further then Scout Trout Elite gunslinger BJ Higgins. Higgins got invited to TCU and North Texas football shortly after releasing this enlightening scouting report on what BJ Higgins can bring to the next level. He is a field general who is able to lead his team downfield with darts downfield that are thrown early and on time. BJ shows an innate ability in throwing his receivers at First Baptist open to a spot and is a defensive backs nightmare with his passing precision. I expect big things out of Higgins the next two years in the talent rich State of Texas and I could see him landing double digit power five offers by the time his already illustrious high school career comes to an end. Check out BJ's sophomore season highlight's below and click HERE to view his Scout Trout Elite QB profile.
TOP 2022 FOOTBALL RECRUIT
Another Top 2022 football recruit out of the State of Texas that has been rapidly rising is Top 2022 DB recruit KJ Truehill, who has been defined as a lock-down DB by many in the industry. Truehill had an exceptional sophomore season at Bridgeland High School in Cypress,Texas and has already taken visits to top tier academic institutions like Tulane. KJ is an expert at man to man press coverage and is also a extremely sure tackler coming out of the defensive backfield. He is a very physical 2022 DB recruit and uses outstanding technique in pass coverage to be able to break up anything thrown his way. He can be seen in his footage below coming up in the run game to make technically sound tackles and you will never see a receiver get over the top of him in coverage. Truehill also plays the football very well in the air and is a top defensive back recruit at Scout Trout Elite & College Football Today in the 2022 football recruiting class.

TOP 2020 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Some under the radar Top 2020 football recruits have emerged with the best stats, highlights and academics in the world of College Football Today. When I flipped on Neriyan Brown's highlight tape below, I believe I could be watching the best wide receiver recruit in the nation and I am extremely excited to see him play in the 2020 High School All-American Bowl in Memphis,Tennessee. Neriyan was able to haul in 72 receptions for 918 yards and 9 touchdowns on the season. Brown was notably known as a Top 2020 DB before the season started, as he is a dominant defensive back for North Spring High School. His versatility on the offensive side of the football will certainly be a game changer for a college team at the next level and is why we have Neriyan Brown ranked so highly in our 2020 Top football recruit rankings. Watch "The Last Ride" below and visit the Scout Trout Defensive Backs database to find more on Neriyan Brown.
TOP 2021 CFB RECRUITS
Top 2021 CFB recruits at College Football Today have emerged as stars in their respective regions of the United States and Top 2021 O-Line recruit Will Jones has been magnificent in the trenches. When watching Will Jones on Twitter, I cannot be more pleased with the production he has shown this year on the offensive line. His engage to pancake ratio is outstanding and he is one of the most technically sound blockers you will find at 6'6,295LBs. Even though his 2019 Hudl highlight's are locked, Will still managed nearly 150 views so far from college coaches nationally. You can find more on Top 2021 OL recruit Will Jones in the Scout Trout Elite Offensive Linemen database, as Stuarts Draft hosts Buffalo Gap on November 15th in the Virginia State playoffs.
TOP 2021 WR RECRUITS
Top 2021 WR recruits features Noah Arneson out of Orono High School in Minnesota, who has received major interest from FCS powers Dartmouth, North Dakota St, South Dakota St and the emerging MAC football team the Miami of Ohio Redhawks. His junior season stats can be found below, along with his standout game tape, which has major intrigue developing across the world of College Football Today. Orono had their starting QB go down mid-season and Noah suffered a broken thumb, but was fitted with a cast to continue his productive season on the gridiron in Minnesota. Once their starting QB returned, so did the high flying passing attack at Orono and as you can see, Noah had a very productive season in his junior campaign.
Junior Season Stats: 9 Games
27 Receptions for 436 yards – 4 TD’s
5 Rushes for 38 yards – 1 TD
21 Kick Returns for 426 yards

TOP 2021 APB RECRUIT
Top 2021 APB recruit Pierce Muthui-Edwards is simply one of the most brilliant APB recruits I have gotten the pleasure to evaluate on tape. He exhibits immense capabilities in escaping oncoming tacklers in close quarters and has some of the best agility you will witness in his highlight's below. Pierce excels in all facets in the game of American football and even can be seen whipping a dart downfield out of the wildcat formation, in which he is primarily used with his capabilities as a ball carrier. He is one of the most exciting players I have watched on tape in the slot and has outstanding speed, agility and power with the football in his hands. Muthui-Edwards is a very gifted route runner and can even be seen completing a double-pass for a touchdown from the slot receiver position. Pierce is one of the few players in the nation that can create plays out of the QB and slot position, as he also operates masterfully in the option game. With his outstanding new game tape below, he proves to be one of the hardest players to bring down in the country and will be moving up our 2021 recruit rankings at College Football Today. Find more on Pierce in the Scout Trout Elite Wide Receivers database!

CFB PLAYOFF RANKINGS
In our first CFB playoff rankings breakdown, we will predict what we believe the CFB playoff committee will be releasing on November 5th,2019. First we must look at who is on the 13 member CFB playoff committee and analyze their thought process, which we already did last season below.
1. Rob Mullens - Oregon Athletic Director
2. Frank Beamer - Former Head Coach of Virginia Tech
3. Paola Boivon - Professor Arizona State
4. Jeff Bower - Former Head Coach Southern Miss
5. Joe Castiglione - Athletics Director Oklahoma
6. Herb Deromedi - Former Head Coach Central Michigan
7. Ken Hatfield - Former Head Coach at 3 FBS programs
8. Chris Howard - President Robert Morris
9. Bobby Johnson - Former Head CoachVanderbilt
10. Ronnie Lott - Former All-American USC
11. Gene Smith - Athletics Director Ohio State
12. Todd Stansbury - Athletics Director Georgia Tech
13. Scott Stricklin - Director of Athletics Florida
COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF
"The College Football Playoff is not an officially sanctioned championship event by the NCAA, the sport's governing body. The NCAA has never recognized an official national championship for FBS football, instead merely recognizing the decisions made any of a number of independent major championship selectors." -Wiki
A 13 member committee completes this selection process, instead of the BCS computers that used to finish the NCAA FBS Top 25. Because the Tournament only has four teams, this usually creates a cause for concern among power five programs and other less lucrative programs in smaller conferences like UCF. The fact of the matter is, anyone can claim a national title these days and we plan on crowning our champion by influencing all members of every Top 25 committee to do whats right for not only each college football program, but also each individual student-athlete who deserves a shot at the national title.
CFB PLAYOFF RANKINGS WEEK 1
The CFB playoff rankings week 1 will be released after week 10 of the college football season and we expect these rankings to change with some significant match-ups ahead of us. You can view the entire college football schedule for week 10 by clicking the button below.

CFP RANKINGS 2020
The CFP rankings for 2020 at College Football Today are broken down below. We think that this will change considerably after key rivalry games and conference championships play out. The highest ranked non-power five team will be selected by the College Football Playoff committee, as well and will play in the Cotton Bowl.
By far the most impressive team this season in our opinion at College Football Today. The Buckeyes have severely broken the likes of nationally ranked Cincinnati and Wisconsin, which are their two most impressive wins thus far on the 2019 season. They even have a defensive end named Chase Young who is being talked about for Heisman Trophy consideration, as well as the emergence of Justin Fields. The test will come in their final three games of the season, as they will play Penn State, Michigan and will play for the Big Ten Championship on December 7th,2019 in Lucas Oil Stadium.
Alabama has had another great season and I can't see a reason they are not number two in the College Football Playoff rankings. They have beaten up on every opponent they have played and will face LSU after a BYE week on 11/9. Bama will have the Iron Bowl, as well as the SEC Championship to make their case for the College Football Playoff. Their back-up QB played very well in the absence of Tua and we should see him back against LSU. The Crimson-Tide have the best receiving corp in all of College Football, which is what I believe separates them from LSU.
LSU football is playing magnificently this year behind Joe Burrow and the athletes that Ed Orgeron has been able to coax into coming to play in Death Valley. They have beaten Florida and Auburn, which are now their two main staple victories on the season. The Auburn win at home by a score of 23-20 was not that impressive to me and the win against now (5-3) Texas means much less in retrospect. The Tigers let up a whopping 38 points to a struggling Vanderbilt team and as of right now, have no business being ranked number one in any poll. With all of that being said, The Tigers get to stake claim to the number one spot against Alabama and will most likely get to play in the SEC Championship. This would make the LSU Tigers a sure bet to make the College Football Playoff if they can win one of those contests.
Clemson football survived a scare against a very well coached and talented Tar Heels team, as it seems this is what the pollsters are hanging out to remove Clemson from the College Football Playoff. But, the ACC is not as weak of a conference as people think and week by week I am learning it is just a very well balanced conference from top to bottom. The Tigers are going to have to win out convincingly it appears to make the College Football Playoff, but how can you deny a undefeated team who won the National Championship the year prior?
Penn State could arguably have the best defense in the nation and will face a very good Minnesota team on 11/9. If they can handle business against an emerging team at College Football Today, we might see them be able to pounce over Clemson in the College Football Playoff. They will then face a very good Indiana team and face our number one team in the nation Ohio State on 11/23. If they can find a way to beat the Juggernaut that is The Ohio State University, we could see them as the number one team in the nation. They finish the season with the bewildered Rutgers football team and should see themselves in the Big Ten Championship game if they are able to defeat the Ohio State Buckeyes.
The Florida Gators will play the Georgia Bulldogs this weekend, who could very well leap frog the Gators into the 6th position in the College Football Playoff. If the Gators fall to Georgia, we very well could see the Bulldogs jump into their spot. But, the likes of Oregon, Oklahoma and even Baylor could make a statement to move up in the College Football Playoff rankings. The Gators only loss came to a very formidable opponent in LSU, but as you can see in the stat above, their games have all been very close in the 2019 college football season.
