Phil Steele

Strengths: With Kevin Sumlin as the head coach, you know the offense will be explosive, and they have my No. 4 set of receivers in the country. The defense has a stud up front in DE Myles Garrett (11.5 sacks as true freshman) and plenty of elite recruits  for new defensive coordinator John Chavis to mold. They have a top-10 special-teams unit, as well, which is fitting with their 12th Man history.
