Poll: Big East's biggest impact newcomers

We're continuing to ask for your opinion on some burning questions facing the Big East in 2011.

You can vote on the poll included on this post, and we'll tally the results and react to them when the voting concludes. The topic now is: biggest impact newcomers.

I've selected five players who weren't on the field last year who could make an impact on this year's Big East race. Here are the nominees:

  • Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers: The 6-foot-6 redshirt freshman was wildly impressive this spring and could develop into a star quickly with his blend of size and speed.

  • Vernard Roberts, RB, West Virginia: The true freshman took the lead in the West Virginia running back race this spring, and in Dana Holgorsen's offense he could put up huge numbers.

  • Savon Huggins, RB, Rutgers: Arguably the top recruit in the Big East this year, Huggins has already drawn Ray Rice comparisons and hasn't even started taking classes yet.

  • Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville: The Cardinals' quarterback of the future couldn't beat out Will Stein this spring but has a whole summer to make up ground.

  • Kenbrell Thompkins, WR, Cincinnati: The junior-college transfer is already a team leader, and coach Butch Jones says Thompkins can be the Bearcats' No. 1 receiver in 2011.

So those are the nominees. Now it's time to let your voice be heard.
