Though he played second fiddle to Mark Ingram his first two years, Alabama running back Trent Richardson still showed off how dangerous of a back he can be.
He has amassed 1,451 yards and 14 touchdowns through his first two seasons in Tuscaloosa.
Now that Mark Ingram has left Bama for the NFL, it’s Richardson’s time for the Crimson Tide.
With quarterback Greg McElroy and wide receiver Julio Jones also going pro, Richardson will be the focal point of the Alabama offense.
Also, the Crimson Tide have one of the best defenses, so Richardson will be called upon to run out the clock, which will help his stats and his Heisman candidacy.
Richardson has a great shot at the Heisman while leading the Tide to another title.
