Area alumni set for Big 12, SEC, ACC football seasons

The 2020 fall college football schedule will be a little lighter with several conferences opting to compete in the spring, including the Big Ten and Pac-12.

With a few schedule adjustments, the other three Power 5 conferences plan on playing this fall. The Big 12, SEC and ACC include dozens of local alumni ready to take the field next month.

The list includes a few former Houston ISD stars, three of whom were key contributors in Texas’ defensive backfield as sophomores last season as the Longhorns finished 8-5 with an Alamo Bowl win.

Former Lamar star D’Shawn Jamison recorded 35 tackles (29 solo), three pass deflections, a forced fumble, fumble recovery and a team-high three interceptions. He also averaged 30.6 yards on eight kick returns, bringing one back for a touchdown.

Former Heights standout Jalen Green led Texas with five pass deflections, adding 30 tackles (21 solo). Anthony Cook (Lamar) recorded 24 tackles (20 solo), defending two passes and forcing a fumble.

Florida defensive back Donovan Stiner (Bellaire) led the Gators with four interceptions as a sophomore, adding 29 tackles (15 solo) as the team finished 11-2 and won the Orange Bowl.

Former teammate Jayden Peevy enters his senior year at Texas A&M on the defensive line. He recorded 34 tackles, four TFL and 1.5 sacks as a junior.

Boston College sophomore offensive lineman Tyler Vrabel (St. Pius X) earned ACC honorable mention last year, starting 13 games at left tackle as a redshirt freshman.

Alabama junior receiver Jaylen Waddle (Episcopal) looks to build on a career that already includes 78 receptions, 1,408 yards and 13 touchdowns. He has also scored twice on punt returns and brought back a kick for a touchdown last year.

Defensive tackle Marvin Wilson (Episcopal) is a team captain at Florida State. He 92 tackles, 13 TFL and 8.5 sacks in his career, including 44 tackles, 8.5 TFL, five sacks and four pass deflectionsto set personal highs as a junior.
