Brevin Allen is one of the best pass rushers in college football, and his football team Campbell is a team to watch. They are led by former Carolina Panthers safety Mike Minter.

Isaiah Land the star pass rusher from Florida A&M has made the Buck Buchanan Watch List to start the 2022 season. Land who racked up 19 sacks last year and 25.5 tackles for loss was named the Buck Buchanan Winner for the best defensive player in FCS and was also named SWAC Defensive Player of the Year. This year thirty five players made the list, and one player to keep an eye on is Brevin Allen from Campbell. He looks like a legit prospect and competitor.
