Sean Tucker, RB Soph.

Coming in as a true freshman, the 5-10, 209-pounder had a strong year with 626 yards and four points in a painful 1-10 team. Last year, offense gave him the ball and then and again and again as he developed into one of the best running backs in college football.

From behind a good — to be nice — offensive line, he rumbled for 1,496 yards and 12 touchdowns — averaging over six yards per carry — and caught 20 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns. Able to rip off nine 100-yard plays in the 12 contests, he was a marked man and the defense still couldn’t stop him.

Mikel Jones, LB Jr.

6-1, 225. 217 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 11.5 TFL, 4 INT, 6 abandoned passes, 3 forced fumbles, 3 fumble recoveries. 2021 Second Team All-ACC. 2020 Honorable Mention All-ACC.

Garrett Williams, CB Soph.

6-0, 189. 116 tackles, 2 INT, 22 broken passes, 1 sack, 9 TFL. Two-time Honorable Mention All-ACC.

Darian Chestnut, CB Soph.

6-0, 189. 43 tackles, 3 INT, 11 broken passes, 1.5 TFL. Third Team All-ACC.

Garrett Shrader, QB Jr.

6-4, 228. 88 of 153 (58%), 1,170 yards, 8 TD, 5 INT, 587 rushing yards, 6 TDs at Mississippi State in 2019. 123 of 234 (53%), 9 TD, 4 INT, 781 rushing yards, 14 TD last year at Syracuse.

Juwaun Price, RB Soph.

5-10, 198. 168 carries, 914 yards (5.4 YPC), 31 catches, 180 yards in his last two years at New Mexico State.

Stefon Thompson, LB Soph.

6-1, 247. 114 tackles, 9 sacks, 14.5 TFL, 3 forced fumbles in two seasons.

Marlowe Wax, LB Soph.

6-0, 245. 93 tackles, 7 sacks, 12.5 TFL, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, 1 broken pass in two seasons.

Matthew Bergeron, OTJr.

6-5, 327. One of the better blockers on a line that has struggled over the years is entering his fourth year as a starter, having started on the right before taking over on the left. Honorable Mention All-ACC.

Justin Lamson, QB RFr.

6-3, 215. A tall, passing quarterback who can walk, he’s had a great offseason and will be pushing for the starting job at fall camp.
