Top Running Back Recruits

The Nations Top 10 Running Backs:

1. Darrell Scott (right) - Ventura, CA 6-2 215 4.32 Colorado, Florida, LSU, Texas
Most exciting back in the country, has the power to run inside and speed to bounce outside
2. Jamie Harper - Jacksonville, FL 6-0 205 4.35 Clemson, Florida, FSU, Illinois, Miami (Fla.)
Great change of direction runner, above average receiver out of the backfield as well
3. Jermie Calhoun - Van, TX 6-0 210 4.60 Oklahoma
Powerful patient runner, waits for blocks to develop, then shows burst
4. Ryan Williams - Manassas, VA 5-10 205 4.45 Virginia Tech
Head coach Frank Beamer wouldn't let Williams slip from their grasp
5. Richard Samuel - Cartersville, GA 6-1 205 4.50 Georgia
Two position star who could play linebacker at the next level as well as compete for the running back job
6. Aundre Dean - Katy, TX 6-1 200 4.50 Alabama, ASU, Louisville, LSU, Ohio State
The running back Nick Saban needs to bring wins to Tuscaloosa, can Saban land Dean?

7. Sam McGuffie (left) - Cypress, TX 6-0 190 4.40 Michigan
May be the most explosive player in the country, rare physical attributes in a runner
8. Justin Johnson - Gilmer, TX 6-1 205 4.50 Oklahoma
Will team with fellow recruit Jermie Calhoun to establish a feared Sooner backfield
9. Jonas Gray - Detroit, MI 5-11 215 4.35 Notre Dame
Can step in right away and help an almost non existent running game from a year ago
10. Cyrus Gray - Desoto, TX 5-11 195 4.45 Cal, Florida, Kansas, Louisville, Notre Dame
Powerful burst, a runner who can reach top speed after his first step
