Honey, St. Brown & Co: College talents from Germany

Munich – Equanimeous St. Brown (Green Bay Packers) and Amon-Ra St. Brown (Detroit Lions) has already signed with an NFL team. Osiris St. Brown, who acts as a broad receiver just like his two older brothers, wants to follow them.

Young St. Brown enters his final collegiate season with the Stanford Cardinals. The 23-year-old shines with his speed, especially in the short passing game. In 2019, he had his best season to date, catching passes for 263 yards. However, his last touchdown dates back to 2018.

Like many other German-born football talents, he also hopes to be able to recommend himself to the NFL in the college season 2021 (live on ProSieben MAXX and ran.de).

Even German quarterbacks now have a chance to get a scholarship. Luke Wentz of the Virginia Cavaliers was the first passer from Germany to receive this honor. In the meantime, he has been retrained as a recipient.

With the two German offensive liners Karim Al-Soufi and Gerrik Vollmer, he even has two German teammates with the Virginia Cavaliers.

Quarterback hope Alexander Honey

A great hope for German football is Alexander Honig. The quarterback had several scholarships and chose TCU Horned Frogs. Now he is looking forward to his first season.

“I have a huge potential because I’m also behind the Americans – in terms of training – and still play at the same level. And I believe that if I train regularly at a university, great things can still happen.” , he says.

Another top talent from Germany is the defensive Alexander Ehrensberger from Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The 21-year-old made just one appearance last season but made a strong impression with a layoff and two tackles for losses.

“I think I’m on the right track, but I still have to make adjustments,” he said in an interview with “Touchdown24”. His goal for 2021 is to “play regularly and be an important factor in our defense.”

Lorenz Metz – from the Bearcats to the NFL?

Lorenz Metz of the Cincinnati Bearcats is one step further. The offensive tackle had already established itself as a starter in 2019 and is used on both the right and left side. Metz has already blocked Chase Young, last year’s Washington Football Teams number two.

Metz also dreams of the NFL: “I will continue to give my all. If my development continues like this, I think it will remain a realistic goal.”

Julius Welschof pursues the same dream. The defensive liner found a job at Michigan Wolverines – one of the most prestigious teams in college football. As a rotation player, he received a total of six tackles, 0.5 sacks and 0.5 tackles for losses last season.

The beginning was not easy. “In the first year, I had to get used to the higher level than in Germany both physically and in terms of game theory,” he told “merkur.de.”

Welschof is now looking forward to his fourth season. His former teammate Kwity Paye was selected as No. 21 by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2021 NFL Draft. This means: The German has chances for more game training, but he also follows in very large footsteps.

Marlin Klein – the greatest talent in German football?

In the coming year, perhaps the greatest talent in German football will play for the Michigan Wolverines. His name: Marlin Klein.

The 18-year-old already had scholarship offers from 18 different top schools last year. No players from all over Europe had more offers.

The wide receiver and tight-end moved to the United States two years ago to play for Rabun Gap-Nacoochee High School. His plan is, “Go to college for three or four years, and then of course my dream is the NFL.”

In general, there are now many young German football players who dare to take the leap to the United States and play there for an NCAA FBS Division 1 college. In addition to the mentioned players, this also applies to the following German talents:

– Dominik Behrens (Offensive Liner, UMass Minutemen)

– Tobias Braun (Offensive Liner, Ole Miss Rebels)

– Joseph Appiah Darkwa (Defensive Tackle, Penn State Nittany Lions)
