5. RB Eric Gray, Oklahoma from Tennessee
The Sooners have the passing game to hang shot-for-shot with anyone. The defense should be the best in the Big 12 – or close to it – and Spencer Rattler is in the preseason discussion for the 2021 Heisman Trophy.
The O line got a key piece in Wanya Morris, and it got an instant factor at running back in the 5-9, 206-pound Gray. The former Tennessee Volunteer led the team with 772 yards and four scores last season, and he caught 30 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns.
Ultra-quick, he has seen time as a punt returner, he can be a third-down back, and he proved he could be a workhorse runner if needed. He might not have to carry the offense with Kennedy Brooks back after opting out in 2020, but he can do it if Rattler needs a little break.
