CFN 2021 First Team All-America Running Backs

Breece Hall, Jr. Iowa State
The 6-1, 215-pounder showed promise as a freshman, and then he took over the offense with a massive 1,572-yard, 21-touchdown, two-receiving score season on the way to a Big 12 Championship appearance.

He doesn’t have to carry the whole attack with a loaded veteran team with QB Brock Purdy under center, but he’s good for at least 20 carries and 100 yards ever time out. And if defenses load up to slow him down, fine – that’s part of the plan with a passer like Purdy able to take advantage of the opportunity.

Mohamed Ibrahim, Sr. Minnesota
You know what’s coming, now try to stop it.

A sure-thing five-yard-per-carry back, he’s as tough as any runner in college football to go along with a shiftiness to slip and slide his way to keep things moving. A 20+ carry workhorse, he was the offense at times last year when the passing game wasn’t up to 2019 snuff, and he kept on producing with over 1,000 yards and 15 scores in just seven games. He’ll keep it all going as the main man for an improved Gopher team.

CFN 2021 Second Team All-America Running Backs

Sincere McCormick, Jr. UTSA
The Roadrunners surged last year to a bowl game, and they’ve got the back to do even more. A powerful 5-9 and 200 pounds, he can pop, is ultra-quick, and he should blow past the 1,487 yards and 11 scores of last year.

Kevin Harris, Jr. South Carolina
Harris might not have to handle all of the work like he did last year, and he’ll probably split carries, but he’s still one of the nation’s best backs coming off a terrific season averaging 114 yards per game with well over 1,100 yards and 15 scores – all against an SEC schedule.
