Anyone familiar with Rich Rod’s offense knows that running the ball is vitally important to the success of the team. Names like Pat White, Steve Slaton, Noel Devine, and Denard Robinson come to mind immediately when thinking of Rodriguez’s offense.
Carey is primed to be next on the list of game breaking rushers. As a true freshman, Carey finished second on the team in rushing last year (425) and first in rushing touchdowns (six). However, his performance in big games against Oregon, USC and Arizona State have Wildcats fans excited for his future.
Not only is he a threat in the running and passing games, but on kick returns as well. The speedy Carey set a school record against Oregon with 197 kickoff return yards.
Expect to see Carey getting plenty of touches in Rodriguez’s offense and to see his name on the all Pac-12 team by seasons end.
