3. Abdul Janneh
A little closer to home is Duquesne transfer Abdul Janneh.
A local product from Hanover, PA, Janneh caught 43 passes for 579 yards and nine touchdowns in 11 games this season.
Listed at 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, Janneh has great size for a wide receiver. He is listed as a sophomore by Duquesne, so like Thornton and Horn, he would be a long-term investment.
The one question with Janneh would be how he handles the step up in competition. Duquesne’s most notable opponents this season were Florida State and Youngstown State. Against FSU, Janneh caught three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. Against YSU, Janneh had his best game of the season, catching eight passes for 121 yards and two touchdowns.
The rest of Duquesne’s schedule would not be a good measuring stick to look at considering how bad the competition was. The size and stats are there, but how he would handle the move from FCS to the Big Ten is the one concern.
Other schools don’t seem to be concerned though, as he already has drawn interest from Virginia Tech, NC State, Oregon, Kansas State and UCF.
