Harris ran for over 1,000 yards last year. Somebody will have to step it up a notch. But, it won't be easy. I have crossed out the guys who will no longer be playing football for the Racers. As you can see, a good number of them have said farewell.
It's going to come down to 5'8 Junior, Duane Brady. I think he can do well and I think he can produce. 4.7 yards per carry is pretty good even though he only carried it 60 times this past season. You have to feel confident about him carrying the ball. But you have to be cautious. Can he be an every down back? That will be answered this season.
Watch out for backup running back, Nikkous Moore. The kid can run and play football. He's a 5'10, 215 lbs sophomore and comes out of Memphis, Tennessee. He didn't have staggering numbers in high school as he ran for 330 yards his senior season. But, he averaged almost seven yards a carry. He may be able to come in and make some nice runs.
Overall, I give the Racers a C at the running back spot. Brady is not that experienced and there's a lot of issues that need to be brought up. There's no depth as well. This could be a problem if Brady gets injured. We then throw in a running back who has never played a down of college ball. It's troublesome.
The potential is there but for now, I will have my doubts. I would have like to seen more experience at the position but this is what happens during transition years.
