Each year we have an influx of great running backs expected to emerge and breakout. There are a ton of fantastic running backs in college football already, but some are not receiving the credit they deserve.

We already have our crop of next superstars waiting in the shadows to join the nation’s elite in 2011. Their names will be jumping off everybody’s tongue in college football discussions next season as we watch them in awe each and every Saturday.

Potential 2011 Heisman winners: Michael Dyer of Auburn, Trent Richardson of Alabama, Marcus Lattimore of South Carolina and LaMichael James of Oregon. Those are a handful of the names you already know.
