When grading every single college football player on every snap during the FBS season, it's easy to find hidden stars who might not be getting their due nationally. However, sometimes the hidden stars are uncovered quickly, much like Alabama's Quinnen Williams, who went from breakout player to household name in a matter of weeks. He was a prime candidate for a list of unknown superstars, until his star shone so bright that the national media took notice.
Still, there are plenty of under-the-radar stars around the nation, and Pro Football Focus is here to shine the light on the players you need to know.
WR Andy Isabella, UMass
More than just a small slot receiver, Isabella was the nation's best receiver this season, finishing with a 93.1 overall grade. He caught 101 passes for 1,696 yards and 13 touchdowns, including 705 yards on deep passes (20 yards or more), good for second in the nation. Isabella also was one of the most sure-handed receivers in the nation, dropping just five of his 106 catchable attempts. The most impressive part of his season came in the last game of the year against Georgia, when he posted a 90.4 overall PFF grade while catching 15 of his 16 targets for 219 yards and two scores against one of the nation's best teams. Isabella's ability to win all over the field earned him PFF All-American honors for his impressive all-around season.
