    I figured I would go ahead and make this thread to track white RBs.

    Lamar RB Kade Harrington is going up against Houston this week. A strong performance by him should elevate his draft stock.

    Vs. Coastal Carolina last week Kade had 28 rushes/207 yds 2tds with 3 rec for 20 yds.


    Here are some pictures of him in action last week:

    Props to Jimmy C for bringing this ex-LB to our attention last week

    Yes indeed Carolina Speed...Mentioned Derrick Craine in 17' NFL Draft thread recently/followed him last season...if Zach Zenner for some strange reason was not Drafted... won't get my hopes up for Craine...however he should be in NFL Training Camp at the least

    Freshman Tailback Cade Carney (Wake Forest) had an 8 yard TD run vs Duke...3 carries for 18 yards so far in 1st half

    Keep an eye on Gordon Collins(Richmond) tonight.....he rushed for 114 yards on 13 carries (including 55 yard TD run can't locate video where NFL DB Prospect Quin Blanding could not catch him).... vs FBS/ACC Virginia last week

    Here are some pics of Cade Carney in action against a good Duke Defense. Let's hope he gets more carries as the season goes along.

    Army RB Andy Davidson is the surprise player thus far. He has been a wrecking ball and eclipsed the 100 yd make in both games so far. He is the main reason they have started 2-0.

    Kansas State FB Winston Dimel rushed for 4 touchdowns yesterday.

    [​IMG]

    Kent State RB Nick Holley only had 2 carries for 15 yards but he had 7 catches for 65 yards and 2 touchdowns. He seems to be more of 3rd down, receiving back.

    Oregon St RB Ryan Nall only had 39 yards rushing but he did have a touchdown.

    Wake Forest true freshman tailback Cade Carney missed last week's game with a knee injury. the knee injury has been reported to be an MCL sprain, which will likely keep him out two more weeks. Wake head coach Dave Clawson said there's a small chance he can be ready for the Oct. 1 game against NC State, but it's more likely that he'll be back for the Syracuse game on Oct. 8.

    Carney suffered the injury at practice.

    In his last outing, he exploded for 108 yards and 3 touchdowns on just 17 carries.

    Rough Week..FRUSTRATING too!! Remind myself football is a brutal game...injuries & wear & tear is bound to happen

    McCaffrey did not play tonight vs Notre Dame...it's an undisclosed injury..is it his hip?

    After last weeks 221 yard rushing performance vs Cal....Ryan Nall had just 1 carry for 32 yards.....had been in walking boot Thursday...guessing nagging ankle injury resurfaced?

    Army's Andy Davidson had 1 carry for 11 yards...took the rest of the day off in a 62-7 rout of Lafayette...16 different players ran the ball

    Wake Forest freshman Cade Carney 10 carries for 33 yards vs Florida State

    Former RB turned QB Nick Holley had 84 yards rushing on 24 carries & 2 TD's

    Georgia State's Kyler Neal with only 3 carries for 20 yards..the team barely ran the ball

    Air Force's Timothy McVey had 44 yards rushing on 6 carries & TD + 1 rec for 21 yards; Fullback Shayne Davern 7 carries 23 yards + 3 rec for 57 yards

    Baylor back-up RB Wyatt Schrepfer had 9 carries for 39 yards in garbage time

    FCS
    Lamar's Kade Herrington ...going to guess he got hurt with only 9 carries for 42 yards?? (his replacement/another white RB Austin Krautz(Fr.) carried the ball 20 times
    Chaatanooga's Derrick Craine got off to a fast start...but got hurt & did not finish game...8 carries for 35 yards & TD + 2 receptions for 55 yards

    Didn't realize Gordon Collins(Richmond) is OUT for for the season (after just two games) after the 114 yard game vs Virginia including 55 yard TD game winner in season opener

    Andy Davidson was lost to an injury early so Army put in another white LB convert to RB Cole Macek who picked up the slack: 17 rushes 111 yds with 1 TD.

    Army having a lot of success recruiting white HS rbs, converting them to LBs, and then switching them back to RB once the real affletes are injured!

    I don't think this guy has been mentioned so far this season, but New Hampshire's Dalton Crossan is having a pretty good senior season. He has 676 yards/134 carries/4.9 y/c and 4 TD's and long run of 56 yards in 7 games. I remembered him coming out of high school was a great player. Also has 29 receptions for 193 yds. and 1 TD.

    Oregon St. RB Ryan Nall has an outside shot at 1ooo yards rushing. He currently sits at 672 with three games left to go. He has missed one game and has yet to log more than 19 carries in any contest.

    New Hampshire's Dalton Crossan has 137 yards on 18 carries,(7.6 ypa), against Maine. New Hampshire is up 21-14 with 12:00 left in the 4th.
    Also, UTC's Derek Craine will be in prime time tonight against Alabama on ESPN 2 at 7:00. Craine has been injured. Hopefully he's 100% and can put up decent numbers against Alabama.
    ....and Hopefully New Hampshire's Crossan gets an NFL invite. If not at RB, possibly WR.
    Craine will definitely get a look!

    Christian McCaffrey is now up the 7th in the nation in rushing. If he didn't miss those 2 games he very well might be leading the nation again. What's even more amazing is in a few games where Stanford lost big he had very bad games. So he has right around 1400 yards in a little over half a season of big games. Amazing. Keep it up Christian!

    Great to McCaffrey play so well!

    UTC's Derek Craine wasn't as fortunate against Alabama, 13 carries/36 yards, but didn't really have any room at all. Alabama's DL destroyed UTC's OL. I still think Craine will get a look. He has 808 yards/134 carries in basically 8 games. Craine is a faster Eric Breitenstein, if anyone remembers him out of Wofford.

    New Hampshire's Dalton Crossan had 160 yards yesterday and went over a 1,ooo(1,005) for the season. Crossan reminds me of a slightly bigger Julian Edelman.

    Very similar player to Andy Janovich imo who got drafted last year in 6th rd. Rogers is a versatile player I'd love him to put up a few more TDs to cap off a successful career with already over 1100 all purpose yards and 8tds as a Fullback!

    Christian McCaffrey had 203 yards rushing tonight to put him over 1700 yards on the season. That is an amazing number since he missed almost 2 games. He broke the Stanford Record for the most 100 yard games in a season and also has the individual and season rushing records. If that wasn't enough he again led the Pac 12 in rushing while leading the entire nation in all purpose yards per game for the 2nd consecutive year! If he doesn't get a heisman invite then I'm gonna lose it. The kid is simply the most talenting & exciting player in college football in the last half centruy. Even the commentators said so tonight!

    New Hampshire loses James Madison, however, NH's Dalton Crossan had a pretty good college career ending game. 92 yards/15 carries and 2 TD's, one going for 26 yards. I hope he gets an NFL look.
    Also, Derrick Craine's college career comes to an end for UTC as they lose to Sam Houston, 41-36. Craine finishes with 115 yards/ 22 carries and 2 TD's with his longest run being 36 yards. He should also get a look.
