Last years offensive freshman of the year is back and once again making headlines. In a move that surprised no one, this offseason he transferred from Miami to Oregon, to be with an AD he knows well. He has had a monster season, with almost 400 more yards than the next leading rusher. Huddle hussy has made it clear from the start that her plan this year is to “give bush ball, run” with him having games where he has had over 60 carries. Look for bush to be a candidate for Heisman this year.

It has been an interesting career for the former GFLer to be sure. When he first came to Michigan, he was behind Wolverine great Victor Von Vanmont. While most coach’s would attempt to run an RBBC, Uphillmoss decided that VVV was too good of a talent to split carries with anyone. He realized that Fayed was by far the strongest running back in the NCAA. So the wolverines came out with a deadly combo of Fayed at Fullback and VVV as running back. This has influenced Fayed game to this day, as he is now one of the biggest and strongest runners in the league. We’ll have to wait and see if his lack of speed comes back to haunt him though.

Numbers has been a strong player ever since he joined the league. Part of the strong duo of USC running backs, he is a big reason for their success this season. He carries the rock with such grace, you almost forget how violent this game is. With Numbers set to be around for a while, USC will be in good hands in the future.

Oscar Jebaseelan is an odd player out of Texas. The longhorns incredible passing game has seen Jebaseelan mostly underutilized, but he somehow has the most YPC of any back. He also has a surprisingly high amount of touchdowns, seeing how he gets the ball a lot less than his peers. Jebaseelan is only in his second season, and in a less than ideal situation, but he makes the most of it. Despite also splitting time with another RB, he manages to make huge plays. In fact he has the longest run of the season at 97 yards. He will be a bright spot for texas for as long as he is there.
1172 yds 5.2 ypc 7 tds.
The other RB out of USC, Clap Trap has made a name for himself by being one of the top rushers in the league. This auto 12er may only be at 130 tpe, but he is running like an uncapped freak. Somehow, despite being the back up RB for USC, he has more rushing yards than most backs in the league. It will be amazing to see him and Numbers together in the future.
