We’re already just about at the halfway point of the 2022 college football season. While there’s still much to sort out, here are the highest-graded Power Five and Group of Five players at every position through Week 6.
Power Five: Tanner Morgan, Minnesota Golden Gophers | 92.6
Next up: Bryce Young, Alabama Crimson Tide | 91.7
Tanner Morgan and Minnesota were on a bye this past week. Last week, the sixth-year senior came crashing down to earth against Purdue with just a 55.6 grade in Minnesota’s first loss of the year.
Morgan’s overall season has still been very impressive, with three of his five games earning him a 90.0-plus grade. He and Minnesota look to get back on track at No. 24 Illinois this weekend.
Group of Five: Frank Harris, UTSA Roadrunners | 91.5
Next up: Todd Centeio, James Madison Dukes & Rocky Lombardi, Northern Illinois Huskies | 91.0
Frank Harris has excelled as both a passer and runner for the Roadrunners. His passing and rushing grades are both the third-highest among Group of Five quarterbacks this season. UTSA travels to Miami to take on Florida International on Friday.
Power Five: Miyan Williams, Ohio State Buckeyes | 90.7
Next up: Blake Corum, Michigan Wolverines | 90.2
Miyan Williams missed Saturday’s game against Michigan State with an undisclosed injury, but he remains the highest-graded running back in the country.
Williams has picked up a first down or touchdown on 45.3% of his carries this year, tied for the highest rate in the Power Five. At 5-foot-9 and 225 pounds, he’s a load to bring down. His 0.41 missed tackles forced per attempt is the fourth-best rate among Power Five running backs. Second-ranked Ohio State has off this weekend before taking on Iowa next week.
Group of Five: Nathan Carter, UConn Huskies | 80.9
Next up: Camerun Peoples, Appalachian State Mountaineers | 80.4
Nathan Carter has missed the past three games after separating his shoulder, but he’s impressed when on the field.
So far this season, he’s rushed for a first down or touchdown on 34.4% of his attempts, the third-highest rate in the Group of Five. UConn is on the road against Ball State this week.
