The Next Up Podcast: Episode 2

Looking back at college football's opening week, a big de-commitment at quarterback and an ode to McKenzie Milton
Publish date:

The Next Up Podcast with John Garcia, Jr. arrives just in time for the 2021 college football season. The program won't be limited to the college game, though it will be one of its primary focuses along with high school football, college football recruiting, the National Football League and beyond. 

Next Up will be the audio home for all things football as we forecast programs and players "next up" at every level of the game. 

Episode 2 centers on a big-time quarterback recruit getting back on the market in Zach Pyron, who has seen his recruitment uptick since his commitment to Baylor back in March. We look back at some weekend commitments on the football field and of course revisit a classic opening weekend in college football.
