Leading the way at fourth overall was Oregon, trailing only Florida State, Alabama and Oklahoma, with what should be an explosive offense under Heisman contender Marcus Mariota. UCLA comes in at seventh overall, the only other team in the top-10 of the list. Defending Pac-12 champions Stanford fell to 11th overall, with USC and new coach Steve Sarkisian following clos...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Of course, if you ask Mariota, he’s just as likely to point at UCLA’s Brett Hundley, or Oregon State’s Sean Mannion. Maybe they’re just being polite. Maybe they all think of themselves the way Arizona State’s Taylor Kelly thinks of himself: “I see myself at the top, just like those other quarterbacks.” How would Kelly...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Armed with the raw tape from that season’s games, Highland’s Brody Benson was one of those coaches who spent hours splicing together highlight reels for each of his players who was hoping to get to college. Then he would copy the tapes, mail them out, and hope some college assistant had time to see them and maybe look into making a scholarship available. “The time spent on those tapes was r...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
