NCAA ratings are always a hot topic in sports games, and with NCAA Football entering its one billionth incarnation later this summer, the ratings game shows little sign of slowing down. Earlier today, EA released a short video of the top ten players for every program - the above screengrab comes from the Cal portion of the video. This comes on the heels of the overall team ratings, which came out earlier this week, and are listed toward the bottom of this post.
From top to bottom, the top ten Cal players in NCAA 14 are:
1) Cole Leininger
2) Deandre Coleman
3) Bryce Treggs
4) Chris Harper
5) Nick Forbes
6) Chris McCain
7) Zach Kline
8) Maurice Harris
9) Brendan Bigelow
10) Jordan Rigsbee
From left to right are their respective scores in: Overall, Speed, Strength, Agility, Acceleration, Awareness, and Break Tackle. These are among many, many other rated [but unshown] attributes, of course.
As a team, Cal is rated 86 on offense, 83 on defense, and 84 overall - good for 8th in the Pac-12. Shout out to CougCenter for compiling the data.
What are your thoughts? Is Cal appropriately ranked? Underrated? Overrated? Did any player get the shaft? And more importantly, are you picking up NCAA 14?
