 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  With all the other big-name quarterbacks in the Pac-12, it's been easy -- albeit unfair -- for Utah's Tyler Huntley to be overlooked. That should end after his latest performance. Huntley continued to make his case as the offensive player of the year in the Pac-12, leading the Utes from behind in their 33-28 win over Washington on Saturday. The victory helped Utah jump one spot in The AP Top 25 to No. 8, its highest ranking since reaching No. 3 in the middle of the 2015 season. And considering the circumstances, it may be remembered as one of the best games in Huntley's career. "He's one of the elite quarterbacks in the country and I stand by that," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. "And when our guys are making great catches and plays for him, it all looks great. And on top of that, he's still not even 100 percent. He's a great quarterback for us."

Maybe because he missed the final five games of last season due to injury, Huntley was lumped in the second tier among Pac-12 quarterbacks before the season began. Oregon's Justin Herbert was at the top, with Washington's Jacob Eason, Stanford's K.J. Costello, USC's J.T Daniels and Arizona's Khalil Tate following in some order. Huntley wasn't an afterthought, but he wasn't the first QB on anyone's mind. And he carried a ton of pressure entering the year, with most believing Huntley needed to improve for Utah to reach its potential. It's clear he has exceeded those expectations, doing so while playing through a knee injury that has limited his mobility. Huntley posted a 192.3 passer rating against Washington, completing 19 of 24 passes for 284 yards, and his third time this season topping a rating of 190. - AP College Football
