MIAMI, WR, SOPH.
The Hurricanes are losing 61.8% of their receiving yards with the likes of Tommy Streeter and Travis Benjamin no longer on campus, and Scott, who missed the last six games of 2011 with a shoulder injury, has already moved to the first team. In two spring scrimmages he has made 11 catches for 190 yards and three TDs. "He's making a lot of progress," coach Al Golden said after the first scrimmage. "What you guys saw today is what we've been seeing in camp every day."

Stafford (below) isn't exactly a revelation. He started 12 games last year and finished third on the team in tackles (80), after transferring to Nebraska from junior college. This spring, however, the big hitter has a better understanding of the Huskers' scheme. "He looks light years ahead of where he was a year ago—his confidence, his understanding of what we're trying to do," says coach Bo Pelini. "It's going to be fun to watch."
STANFORD, B-WR, FR.
The Cardinal's top three pass catchers from last season have left the Farm, leaving playing time up for grabs. The most surprising player this spring has arguably been Young, a former high school running back who, as a scout teamer last season, impersonated USC receiver Robert Woods in preparation for the Trojans. Young, whom coach David Shaw calls an "x factor," is seeing snaps at both running back and receiver. "It will be exciting to see how his role develops," Shaw says.
