The Big East's best: No. 20

7/28/2011

Time to reveal another player in our preseason Top 25 countdown. As a reminder, we are projecting the best 25 players this coming season based on past performance, the way they impact their teams and with input from other coaches and players around the league. Freshmen, transfers and other newcomers are not being included in the list.

No. 20 Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers

It is a sign of your immeasurable talent when you finish second on your team in receiving despite playing most of the season with nagging injuries. That is what happened with Sanu last season. He finished second behind Mark Harrison with 418 yards -- though each player had 44 receptions. Some might say that is also a sign depth is not very good, but there is no questioning Sanu's talent.

Sanu burst onto the Big East scene as a true freshman in 2009, when he became the first true freshman to start the season under coach Greg Schiano. That year, Sanu caught 51 passes for 639 yards. He caught a pass in every game and scored touchdowns receiving, rushing and passing. He has been known to line up in the Wildcat position, but do not expect to see that much, if at all, under new offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti. Though he can play multiple positions, Schiano says that Sanu is staying at receiver. With a more clear-minded approach to the offense, Sanu and Harrison could be the most formidable duo in the league.

The countdown:

No. 25 Dave Teggart, PK, UConn

No. 24 B.J. Daniels, QB, USF

No. 23 Tino Sunseri, QB, Pitt

No. 22 Victor Anderson, RB, Louisville

No. 21 Derek Wolfe, DT, Cincinnati
