Newcomers: Can Neal replace Floyd?
We've spent the last week listing the true freshmen and junior-college transfers who could make the biggest impact in the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC.
But there are plenty of newcomers from outside those conferences who also could have big seasons.
Pittsburgh welcomes in a record-setting running back from the Pennsylvania high school ranks. Rutgers and Boise State both have promising pass rushers, one from a high school and one from a junior college.
And then there's the case of the receiver who almost signed with Notre Dame and the one who actually did join the Fighting Irish.
The Notre Dame-bound receiver must help the Irish replace first-round draft pick Michael Floyd, while the one who spurned the Irish will try to make sure Houston continues to thrive in the post-Case Keenum era.
