Arkansas State, victor of the Sun Belt Conference, says goodbye to head coach Hugh Freeze who takes over the reigns at Ole Miss next season.  It’ll be a game of quarterbacks as ASU likes to put the ball in the air while NIU has their hopes resting on the arm and legs of Chandler Harnish, one of the most underrated quarterback prospects that will be available in April’s draft.

4-5 Chandler Harnish QB 12 5Sr Underrated quarterback that makes terrific decisions in the pocket and effectively leads the offense. Lacks classic size but has an arm. The pass/run option offense of NIU has hurt his development.
7th Nate Palmer WR 81 5Sr Terrific receiver is all aspects. Outstanding in the underneath passing game, displays deceptive speed as well as reliable hands. Underrated and a potential fourth receiver in the NFL.
FA Sean Progar DE 95 4Jr Explosive and athletic college defensive end with good movement skills. Undersized and may be best and outside linebacker in a 34.
7-FA Trevor Olson T 62 4Sr Nice sized tackle prospect with a good upside. Did not improve the way we though possible in 2010. Better on the strong side.
FA Willie Clark WR 10 5Sr
FA Scott Wedige C 71 5Sr Fiery center that blocks with good leverage and shows solid movement skills. Zone blocking prospect.
FA Jason Schepler TE 87 4Sr Strong blocking tight end with good size. Marginal explosion and athleticism.

FA Dwayne Frampton WR 9 4Sr
FA Jermaine Robertson FB 43 5Sr Big, strong, grind it out ball carrier that shows solid foot quickness and the ability to elude defenders. Adequate pass catcher out of the backfield. Must really pick up the intensity blocking.
FA Kelcie McCray S 21 5Sr Downhill safety with marginal recovery speed and ball skills. Highly rated by NFL scouts.
FA Demario Davis OLB 23 5Sr Adequate outside linebacker that shows the ability to make plays sideline to sideline.
