Jalen Hurts led Alabama to an 11-1 regular season and a win in the College Football Playoff over Clemson. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel combined for 2,572 rushing yards as they carried the Bulldogs to an SEC title, Rose Bowl win and an appearance in the CFP championship game. ESPN thinks their replacements will be the most exciting players to watch this fall.

The World Wide Leader named “The most exciting player for each Top 25 team” on Wednesday and right at the top are a pair of super sophomores, Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa and Georgia RB D’Andre Swift.

“Whether he’ll win the starting job remains to be seen, but Tagovailoa is certainly must-see TV,” Alex Scarbrough writes. “And it didn’t start with the national championship. Go back to Vanderbilt and his insane scramble and throw for a touchdown.”

Scarbrough also believes Swift will shine as the leader of UGA’s stable of running backs.

“Sony Michel and Nick Chubb were special. But if you thought they were alone in Georgia’s backfield last season, you weren’t paying attention,” he writes. “As a freshman, Swift showed why coaches have been enamored with his potential, showing off home-run speed with a 7.8 yards-per-carry clip and three rushes of 40 yards or more.”

Other SEC players on the list are QB Nick Fitzgerald (No. 16, Mississippi State), WR Devan Barrett (No. 19, Auburn), RB Trayveon Williams (No. 23, Texas A&M) and WR Deebo Samuel (No. 25, South Carolina).
