Heading into the 2018 season, Devin Singletary was one of my favorite relatively under-the-radar candidates to become a household name in college football in 2018. He had eclipsed 2,000 yards from scrimmage the prior year, en route to an 11-3 finish with the Florida Atlantic Owls in Lane Kiffin’s first year with the program. With Kiffin back and a seemingly manageable amount of turnover across the board, it was disappointing when FAU took a step back in 2018, finishing 5-7. As a result, Singletary remained one of college football’s best-kept secrets.
AS A RECRUIT
Singletary attended American Heritage for high school — located roughly 20 minutes from FAU’s campus. With a 0.8078 247Sports Composite score (3 stars), he slotted in as the 133rd-ranked running back in the class.
However, he may have been a better prospect than the ranking indicates; according to 247, both the Florida State Seminoles and the Miami Hurricanes gave him offers. At one point, he was actually committed to another Power Five school, Illinois. Still, he ultimately signed his letter of intent to the hometown Owls.
