DJ Lagway

It's not like DJ Lagway is hidden by any means to the nation as a whole. As the number-rated QB in the class of 2024, Lagway has had the eyes of the country on him for the past year.

If things go according to plan, Graham Mertz is going to start the season for the Gators, while Lagway comes in for some package plays.

But as we already chronicled, we think Mertz is going to get undervalued by EA Sports, and we could see Lagway getting an early bump. Given his ability to run, Lagway will probably be swapped out by a ton of users as it is depending upon what his speed rating in the game winds up being.

Jordan Castell

For the purposes of a video game, perception can mean more than reality. Jordan Castell was named a freshman All-American last year and should see a bump to his avatar.

Likewise, the perception by the end of the season was that Castell was struggling with his tackling. But in reality, he was 57th out of 274 safeties when it came to his tackling rate.

Given all that, we expect Castell will be one of the better rated sophomore safeties in the game for NCAA 25.
