QB Desmond Ridder, Cincinnati

Desmond Ridder is a four year starter in Cincinnati, amassing a pile of individual school passing records while he was at it. However, it wasn’t until 2021 that Ridder looked like the game was slowing down for him. His coaches spoke about his ability to pull things together when the game doesn’t start right, something that came on this year after Ridder became a father. He entered Cincinnati as a 178-pound freshman in 2017 and transformed into a professionally built quarterback.
