It is time for the annual installment of the Devy 100, the third-most ballyhooed set of devy rankings completed within the greater Southwest Minneapolis area. As always, whittling this down to a mere one hundred was no simple task. If there is anybody you believe was omitted erroneously, feel free to pop in the comments and express your displeasure.
The Devy 100 is designed for the community of DLF to be as informed as possible about all the college prospects and future dynasty stars whether they play in devy leagues or not. Remember, all this information becomes archived in our library of content and goes into our annual Rookie Draft Guide for you to review when each of these players becomes eligible for traditional rookie drafts.
45. Travis Homer, RB Miami Hurricanes
Profile: Travis Homer has always had bankable speed. It was his tenacious style in 2017 which helped him smoothly transition into the feature back role for Miami following Mark Walton’s season-ending ankle injury. An underrated aspect of Miami’s resurgence was Homer’s ability to keep the offense afloat after the loss of arguably their best offensive player. Offering a rapidly improving game and a versatile skill-set, Homer is woefully underrated. The only thing absent from his resume at this juncture is a full season of production as the Hurricanes’ lead back.
2018 Outlook: A full season of production – with the obvious caveat being he avoids injury – is on tap for Homer in 2018. He returns as the clear lead back for Mark Richt’s squad and should easily hold off DeeJay Dallas and Lorenzo Lingaard, neither of whom looks ready for a heavy workload. It should be a rapid ascent for Homer, as workloads could be heavy given Malik Rosier’s inconsistency under center.
