Darnell Savage, S, Maryland v. Michigan State (12 PM on ESPN2)

Excited about this top name prospect, folks. Savage is a hitter on the backend for the Terrapins who is unafraid to fly downhill to the football — but I think he’s rangy enough to play deep. He does have good strength as a nickel rotation player, though I’m excited to get deeper into his man coverage ability in the future. - Solak

JD Spielman, WR, Nebraska v. Ohio State (12 PM on FOX)

Spielman and teammate Stanley Morgan Jr. actually comprise quite the formidable duo for a Nebraska team that has underperformed this season. Ohio State brings a staunch secondary to the match-up, with healthy corners in Damon Arnette and Kendall Sheffield returning to the field. Spielman is only a redshirt sophomore, but has impressed with the ball in his hands this season. - Solak

Josh Allen, Edge, Kentucky v. Georgia (3:30 PM on CBS)

Few defensive lineman have had as productive a season as Josh Allen. The Kentucky junior has been integral to the Wildcats’ impressive season. Georgia’s balanced, explosive offense will be in Allen’s crosshairs this Saturday and his performance could dictate the game. - Natan

Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia v. Kentucky (3:30 PM on CBS

Brother of Calvin Ridley — yeah, the ‘Bama wideout and first round pick of the Atlanta Falcons — Riley plays at rival Georgia. He doesn’t get nearly the volume his older brother did at the FBS level, but you could argue that Riley is more physically talented. He’s better in contested catch situations and loves to climb the latter; he’s also got a staunch test in Kentucky CB Derrick Baity awaiting him in this big SEC match-up. - Solak

David Sills, WR, WVU V. Texas (3:30 PM on Fox)

In what is poised to be a high scoring affair, the skill players will be on full display. David Sills is enjoying a huge senior season where he has 9 touchdowns on less than 40 catches. Texas’ defense has been stronger this year than in seasons passed, but Sills is Will Grier’s favorite target and should see a healthy dose of opportunities to make big plays in a huge game. - Natan

Garrett Bradbury, iOL, NC State v. Florida State (3:30 PM on ABC)

Slept on nationally, Bradbury is a super mobile pivot for the Wolfpack, and much credit of NC State’s strong rushing attack over the last few seasons belongs to Bradbury’s work in the middle. As a pass protector, he’s lacking in size and ideal power — but we’re seeing that matter less and less at the NFL level (just look at Jason Kelce!). Florida State’s got some big boys up front though, so this is a nice test. - Solak

Miles Sanders, RB, PSU v. Michigan (3:45 PM on ESPN)

In the shadow of Saquon Barkley’s leaving for the NFL, Miles Sanders has shone this season. With over 800 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on the ground, Sanders has taken over as the spark for the Nittany Lion offense. His number is sure to be called several times against a very talented Michigan defense and his ability to punish the Wolverines on every carry will weigh heavily on his NFL prospects. - Natan

Corrion Ballard, Safety, Utah v. ASU (4 PM on ESPN)

Utah is flying under the radar as a ranked team and their senior leader on defense is similarly underrated. Corrion Ballard is a 6-3, 200 pound defender with experience at both safety positions. He’s a smart and physical player who has been key in the Ute’s success this season. ASU has a lot of big play potential on offense and Ballard will be called on against the run and pass to limit a resurgent Sun Devils team. - Natan

Garrett Brumfield, iOL, LSU v. Alabama (8 PM on CBS)

Nobody on the field has a bigger test than Brumfield, who will be tasked with handling Alabama’s latest monstrosity, defensive tackle Quinnen Williams. Brumfield is a dancing bear out there who still needs technical advancements, but his physical upside is as good as any guard prospect I’ve seen thus far in the 2019 class. He’ll garner quite a few fans if he has a good game under the biggest spotlight of college football. - Solak

Greedy Williams, CB, LSU v. Alabama (8 PM on CBS)

The Marquee Matchup of the weekend is easily the top three match between LSU and Alabama. The Roll Tide is arguably fielding their best offense ever with inarguably their most explosive passing game. Greedy Williams is still largely regarded as the best cornerback prospect in the country and he will need to perform like it on Saturday night if LSU wants a chance to take down the behemoth of Alabama. - Natan
