We are getting very very close to the top player in the Pac-12 going into 2023.

It’s a tight pack, with players in the same position fighting for spots. It’s getting really hard to separate who from who at this point.

We’re getting down to some of the most elite players in the nation returning to school and star quarterbacks.

10. Dorian Singer, Junior, Wide Receiver, USC

Singer gained more than 1,100 yards last year with six touchdowns. He should blow up even more in Lincoln Riley’s offense with Caleb Williams throwing him the ball.

9. Jalen McMillan, Junior, Wide Receiver, Washington

With 1,000-plus yards and nine touchdowns to his credit last season, McMillan is one of the smoothest playmakers you’ll ever see.

He’s a go-to target for Michael Penix Jr. on third-and-long and for big plays.

8. Cam Rising, Senior, Quarterback, Utah

Rising is such a huge part of why Utah has been able to win the Pac-12 the past two seasons.

He’s not the cleanest player but he’s a leader for their offense and the most proven winner at QB in the conference.

7. Rome Odunze, Junior, Wide Receiver, Washington

Odunze has the best combination of stats, skills, size, and big play potential of any of the big-time returning receivers in the Pac-12. It feels like he could somehow be even better in 2023 too.

6. Laiatu Latu, Senior, Defensive End, UCLA

With 10.5 sacks last year as one of the nation’s deadliest pass rushers, Latu is also great at creating fumbles when he gets to his target.
