One of the most prolific backs in the last decade, former Arkansas running back Darren McFadden wasted no time in making a name for himself.
He finished his freshman season at Arkansas rushing for 1,113 yards and 11 touchdowns. His rushing yard total became the highest ever by a freshman at Arkansas, and it was only the seventh time in SEC history that a freshman had rushed for more than 1,000 yards.
Despite a nagging toe injury suffered prior to the start of his sophomore season, McFadden still set a single-season school rushing record 1,647 yards which, at the time, was the fifth-best ever in the SEC.
McFadden just kept getting better and ended his junior season at Arkansas, which would he his last, with 1,829 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns.
He ended his career at Arkansas as one of the most decorated running backs in school history, holding almost every rushing record there was. His career rushing total of 4,590 yards ranks second all-time in the SEC behind only Herschel Walker (5,259).
