Holiday Bowl

Like Maye, USC's Caleb Williams — perhaps the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft — has opted out of his team's bowl game.

Jamari Thrash, WR, Louisville: Thrash began his playing career at Georgia State before transferring to Louisville this season and he has been a star for the team. Pay very close attention to this guy as he could be a Day 3 pick in the draft but he's got second-round talent.

Jawhar Jordan, RB, Louisville: In addition to a dynamic receiver, the Cardinals also have a dynamic running back. Jordan rushed for 1,128 yards and 13 touchdowns this season. He's on the smaller side at 5-foot-10 and 185 pounds but his talent is unmistakable.

MarShawn Lloyd, RB, USC: Lloyd has nine rushing touchdowns on the year. While not quite as electric as a runner as Jordan, he should be selected in the upcoming draft.

Mario Williams, Dorian Singer, Tahj Washington, WRs, USC: The Trojans have some great wide receivers and all three of these guys should hear their names called in April so long as they opt to enter the draft. Washington led the team in receiving this season with 52 receptions for 963 yards but many scouts rank both Williams and Singer ahead of him.

Brenden Rice, another wide receiver and the son of the legendary Jerry Rice, has opted out of this game. He is a name to watch as some have him as high as a second-round pick.

Austin Jones, RB, USC: Jones will be a late-round choice or an undrafted player, but in two seasons at USC he has rushed for over 1,100 yards and 12 touchdowns after transferring from Stanford.
