    9. Myles Gaskin, Sr. Washington
    Yeah, the 5-10, 191-pound flash should’ve probably turned pro, but he gets to work behind an NFL-caliber offensive line at UW this year. A devastating do-it-all back, he made his 19 catches count with three scores, and he ran for 1,380 yards with 21 scores, averaging over six yards per pop.

    Lol Justice Hill would be 3rd team at OU behind Rodney Anderson and Trey Sermon.

    How does LJ Scott make the list but Michigan's Higdon does not? These lists are really pumping up MSU's QB/RB play, and both seriously under-performed last year.

    2017 Stats:
    Scott: 201 attempts, 898 yards, 4.47YPC, 8 TD's, 74YPG
    Higdon: 164 attempts, 994 yards, 6.06YPC, 11TD's, 76YPG

    Higdon's only knock is that he splits time with Evans, because both are really good backs. With our below average offensive line and almost non-existent QB play last year, both averaged over 5YPC last year.

    Stephen Carr USC should have been on the list, but whatever, the rest of the country will find out about him soon enough. He just needs to stay healthy.

    Salvon Ahmed ... remember that name. He was a true freshman last year and after Gaskin moves after this season this kid will most likely be 1st team All PAC-12. He's better than Gaskin imo. Faster, stronger, bigger and can cut on a dime.

    Patterson from Michigan will think he is an RB. He'll be running for his life behind that OL.

    Dexter Williams is reportedly suspended until week 4. Tony Jones Jr. was going to have more carries than Dexter anyway, yet not on this list.

    I really like this kid the Trojans have coming in this year, Markese Stepp. Big, powerful runner with deceptive speed. Not saying he's top 30 right now, but he should be a good one. Hope he gets some playing time this upcoming season.
