Running backs coach Dennis Erickson has several options in the run game with the variety of running styles available.
Bubba Poole led the Utes in rushing as a sophomore last year, carrying the ball 149 times for 607 yards (4.1 average). Redshirt freshman Troy McCormick is ready to show off his 4.38 40 speed in a game after dazzling on the scout teams last year.
Junior college transfer Devontae Booker will be hard to keep out of the starting lineup if he continues to shred defenses the way he did in spring camp.
The 2014 class is starting to roll in and it has me excited for the bright future of Utah Football. Time to put in the work. #GoUtes-- Dennis Erickson (@EricksonUtes) June 11, 2014
