CFN 2020 All-America Running Backs
CFN 2020 First Team All-America Running Backs
1. Travis Etienne, Sr. Clemson
His biggest problem is being overlooked on an elite team with elite players across the board. Other than that, he continues to be fabulous, coming off an amazing season with 1,614 rushing yards and 19 scores – averaging 7.8 yards per carry – and with 37 catches for 432 yards and four scores.
2. Chuba Hubbard, Jr. Oklahoma State
It’s been an interesting offseason for the 2019’s leading rusher. The 6-1, 207-pound speedster could’ve been someone NFL team’s starter, but he’s back after running for 2,094 yards and 21 touchdowns with 23 catches for 198 yards.
CFN 2020 Second Team All-America Running Backs
3. Najee Harris, Sr. Alabama
Can he keep it all going? The one-time superstar recruit kicked it into high gear over the late part of last season, finishing with 1,224 yards and 13 scores, and catching 27 passes for 304 yards and seven scores. Now it’s salary drive time for the next level.
4. Kylin Hill, Sr. Mississippi State
Don’t forget that Mike Leach likes to get his star running backs the ball – Max Borghi had a huge season for Washington State. Hill only caught 18 passes, but he’ll get the ball in his hands more in the passing game. Don’t be shocked if he matches his 1,350 rushing yard, ten-score season, too.
