With spring games coming up, it’s time to take a look at some new faces on campuses that have been making and impact for their respective schools.

Texas Tech Freshman OL Jake Anderson– Anderson was a top five recruit in the state of Texas at 6-5, 305 and the early enrollee is living up to the hype in Lubbock. Anderson started at guard in the spring game, and will be apart of a Red Raider offensive line that will be totally revamped from 2016.

Texas State QB Damain Williams– The Mississippi State transfer is going to be the starting quarterback for the Bobcats when they open the season. Williams has been impressive in spring practice from the reports out of San Marcos. The system under Dan Mullen has similarities to head coach Evert Withers but the terminology is different, and that is what Williams is getting acclimated to this spring.

Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond– The early-enrollee freshman is in a battle with Senior Jake Hubenak for the staring position. Mond has more upside, but Hubenak has the experience, so the spring game will play a role into who gets most of the first team reps in the fall. They have both been getting reps during spring practice and Mond will receive plenty of time with the ones during the spring game.

Baylor OL Tanner Thrift– Head Coach Matt Rhule doesn’t have the depth on the offensive line with only six scholarship players, but Thrift has reportedly stepped up during spring practice. Thrift is a senior but has seen limited playing time in his time in Waco and will probably wind up playing a big role in the 2017 season.
