The Arizona backfield became a patchwork group last season but was still able to put together quite the impressive season.
Their top three rushers; Keola Antolin, Nic Grigsby, and Greg Nwoko were able to rush for 1477 yards and 12 touchdowns while all of them nursed injuries throughout the season.
All three running backs bring something different to the table. Grigsby is the scat back, when he finds a hole can easily break it for a touchdown. Antolin is a guy who will hit the hole hard and is not afraid to initiate contact despite his diminutive stature (5'8"). Nwoko is the power back who, at 220 pounds, is a load for anyone to try and take down.
All three return this season and if healthy could create quite the trio of running backs that complement each other nicely.
The Wildcats also have two redshirt freshman who could break into the lineup. Daniel Jenkins and Kylan Butler both came to Arizona highly ranked and fit the mold of Grigsby and Butler; small running backs who have speed and aren't afraid to make contact to get the extra yards.
For all of the talk of the wide receivers in the spread offense, Arizona has a stable of running backs to use in its repertoire.
