Today we will move on to my 2020 Top 50 true freshman defensive linemen and their impact on the season. This past year only 29 (58%) contributed in some way this past year. Of the 29 only 13 players had over 10 tackles, and 7 of them were in my Top 10.
Two players on list had more than 25 tackles. PS#2 Myles Murphy of Clemson had 51 tackles and 4 sacks. Clemson’s Bryan Brese (PS#1) with 33 tackles and 4 sacks. 3rd Alfred Collins (PS#32) from Texas with 23 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
Thirteen players recorded at least 1 sack. PS#2 Myles Murphy and PS#1 Bryan Brese led the bunch with 4 sacks each. Tackles for loss on this list were scarce as a total of 29.0 tfl from all 29 players.
The 2020 Top 50 true freshman defensive linemen contributed 303 tackles, 22.5 sacks, and 29 tackles for loss.
