The 2013 running back class is both top-heavy and deep—or at least it's deep where it is top-heavy.
On 247Sports' 100-point composite, which aggregates rankings from numerous recruiting services, 15 different backs earned grades of 96 or better. Which means 15 different backs can, in all good conscience, be regarded as true blue-chippers.
Of those 15, there have been some ups and downs in this year's fall camp. Some look poised to make immediate impacts as freshman while others might take a redshirt and learn for a year.
But everyone still has time to grow.
