Sports Illustrated released a list of the top 100 college football players heading into the 2018 season, and Washington offensive tackle Trey Adams, defensive tackle Greg Gaines and cornerback Byron Murphy ranked among the top 30 players in the country.
Gaines ranked No. 27, Murphy came in at No. 23 and Adams at No. 2o.
Here is what Sports Illustrated wrote about Adams, Washington’s standout offensive lineman:
Adams is one of the most important members of an offense with the horses to drive Washington to a Pac-12 championship and playoff berth. He sat out this spring while recovering from a knee injury last October that limited him to seven games in 2017. Provided Adams is fully healthy by the time the Huskies travel to Atlanta for their highly anticipated season opener against Auburn, he will have a chance to solidify his status as an early first-round pick in the 2019 draft while protecting quarterback Jake Browning’s blind side and clearing holes for stud running back Myles Gaskin.
