College football season cannot come soon enough for me, and I just wanted to highlight five football commits who might do less than what you would expect. This is not to be spiteful or shoot down anyone's dreams, but it is always important to set realistic expectations for what a commit may end up actually achieving in his career. Let me know if you agree with my five picks.

5. Kyle Allen- QB Texas A&M

It is still not clear whether Kyle Allen will start or not, but we know that Kyler Murray will be gunning for the starting role once he gets onto campus. The younger quarterback still has a year of high school football left, but he has designs to start his freshman year. It would be tough to imagine anyone keeping him from that goal based on what I have seen on the tape, and Allen will have to play solid ball in order to keep the job next year.

4. Elijah Hood- RB North Carolina

Elijah Hood has nice measurements (5-foot-11, 221 pounds), and so he is only making this list because of the Tar Heels' issues as of late. He was recruited by some of the best programs in the ACC, but he was largely ignored by the SEC. His play should be interesting to keep an eye on, because he should get a few chances in the early part of the season.

3. KD Cannon- WR Baylor

KD Cannon makes the list for his size (5-foot-11, 162 pounds), but he could continue to fill out during his college career. Who knows? He could even end up making a great professional player one day, because the Baylor Bears keep on churning out playmakers. I do worry about Cannon's health out on the field, but it is true that his speed cannot be denied.

2. Lorenzo Carter- DE Georgia

Carter has great size for his position, but that does not mean that he will start right away. He could end up being a rotation player during his first year, but it will certainly be tough to keep his 6-foot-5 frame off of the field.

Royce Freeman might not get a whole lot of playing time, because the Oregon Ducks are going to be pretty loaded next year. They have done a solid job of recruiting without Chip Kelly, and it looks like they are going to be a program that lasts in the long term.
