NCAA Football: Wake Forest at Florida State Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports


It hasn’t been the same plethora of long runs for Cook this season but he’s been a high-volume workhorse in recent weeks. He’s now leading the nation with 46 forced missed tackles and he’s averaging 4.0 yards after contact per rush. Last year, 65 percent of Cook’s yards came on breakaway (15-plus yard) runs, but this year that number is down to 35 percent, but he’s shown well in more of a grind-it-out style. Cook still has that big-play ability, and he’s having an excellent season even without some of the fireworks.

Isaac flirted with the idea of pulling a Thon Maker and exploiting a loophole to go straight from high school to the NBA, but after being ruled ineligible for the draft, decided to follow through on his commitment to go to Florida State — and he has the Seminoles poised to compete with the big boys in the ACC.

Long and lanky, Isaac really needs college to help bulk up (6-foot-11, 205 pounds), but his game is already NBA-caliber. His length and athleticism make him a very capable defender on the perimeter, and allows him to get to attack the rim with Brandon Ingram-type ease.

However, his biggest asset is his perimeter game. Isaac is perfectly comfortable bringing the ball up the court and initiating the offense. Throw in a silky smoother jumper, and you have guy who will cause problems for opponents.
