The 2014 recruiting class features several outstanding prospects at the running back position. A dying breed, running backs have become less important today due to many teams running the spread offense.

A pair of running backs headed to an SEC school will have to beat out one another, plus two talented incumbents. Another duo faces a similar challenge in the Pac-12, while a quick running back may be on the sideline for awhile.
