Poll: Big East's most improved players
By Brian Bennett
Over the next couple of days, I'll be asking you to give your opinion on a variety of burning questions in the Big East.
You'll get a chance to vote in a poll right here and let your voice be heard. We'll tally up the results and react to your decision once the vote it over.
The latest poll question is about most improved players. I've tried to pick some guys I think could really break out and turn into superstars this year. Here are my nominees:
- Antwon Bailey, RB, Syracuse: Inherits the starting job from two-time 1,000-yard rusher Delone Carter and showed this spring that he can do lots of different things with the ball.
- Mark Harrison, WR, Rutgers: Really came on at the end of last year and has a chance to be the best receiver in the Big East if he plays like that over an entire season.
- Josh Bellamy, WR, Louisville: First had to adjust from junior college and then had to deal with a concussion; was clearly the Cardinals' best receiver this spring.
- Ryne Giddins, DE, South Florida: A big-time recruit who is now moving into a full-time starting role; could he be the next George Selvie or Jason Pierre-Paul?
- Tino Sunseri, QB, Pittsburgh: Had an up-and-down first year of starting and now will be asked to lead a high-powered, no-huddle offense.
There are your nominees. Now it's time to let your voice be heard.
