Reggie Bush

Reggie Bush is one of the most exiting college football players to ever play. Reggie Bush played the the University of Southern California where he played from 2003 to 2005. In his freshman year, Bush set a USC freshman all purpose yards record. In 2004, Reggie Bush was named team MVP and finished fifth in Heisman Voting. He was a finalist for Walter Camp player of the year award and earned consensus All-American honors. In 2005, Bush won Walter Camp Award, Doak Walker Award, Pigskin Club of Washington D.C. Offensive Player of the Year, and lastly the Heisman Trophy. Bush also played a key role in one of it not the best college football games ever played, The 2005 Rose Bowl. This game featured the USC Trojans and the Texas Longhorns. The longhorns came out with a win in a stunning fashion. After that game Bush declared for the NFL draft.

Michael Vick

Michael Vick, in my opinion the greatest college quarterback of all time, played at the University of Virginia Tech from 1998 to 2000. He was a red shirt freshman his first year but started both his sophomore and junior years. Vick's fantastic college career led him to be the #1 overall pick in the 2001 draft. He was selected to the Atlanta Falcons where he played until he was sent to prison. After his time in prison he returned to football and had 3 short stints with the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Though he only played 4 seasons in the NFL he is still remembered as one of the greatest college football players of all time.

Barry Sanders

Barry Sanders is one of the best football players of all time, period. Sanders backed up Thurman Thomas his first 2 years but when he got the chance to show what he had he took it. Even though he was a backup his first 2 years he still showed how dynamic he could be by just returning kicks and punts. His junior year was when he finally got the chance to start at running back. In his junior year he won the Heisman Trophy was an absolutely electrifying player to watch. After the season he declared fir the NFL draft, he was selected to the Detroit Lions and went on to have a Hall of Fame career.
