Athlon has dropped its quarterback rankings for the 2020 football season, and one name is in a shocking location.

South Carolina quarterback Ryan Hilinski checked in at number 53! Yes, Athlon has the young gunslinger as the 53rd-best player at his position in America. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It’s actually shocking to me that Hilinski is that low in the eyes of Athlon. I must be missing something, right?

Once Hilinski took over last season, the Gamecocks were noticeably better on offense. I’m not even a USC fanboy or anything like that.

I just don’t know how the hell Hilinski can be outside of the top 50. Even at his worst, I’d still have him in the top 30.

Anything lower than that is an absolute and complete joke.

The dude has the entire world in front of him, can make all the necessary throws and is just a gamer. It’s really that simple. The fact he’s not ranked higher is laughable.
