Speed is a virtue in college football. It is just as important, if not more so, than any other talent that a collegiate player can posses. With misdirection and option plays implemented heavily in college playbooks,the fastest players usually shine above the rest.
These players have the ability to score on any given play, leaving fans on the edge of their seats in anticipation of a big run or catch. In my opinion, speed is one of the most exciting things about college football.
From an electrifying duo in Gainesville, to a former Olympic qualifier, who now spends his time under center, this list has the top burners. Every player mentioned in this slide show has their own extensive highlight tape filled with breath-taking moves and jaw-dropping speed.
This isn't a top 10 list or anything of that nature—it is just the fastest guys, in my opinion. Of course, there are fast guys out there that I didn't include, just for the simple fact that there are so many of them.
If you feel I missed somebody, or just want to add your favorite fleet-footed superstars, feel free to add them.
