everyone has been saying great things about Joe Mcknight but I just have a feeling Marc Tyler is going to be the guy that really tears it up next year

Graig Cooper will be splitting time with Javarris James, hopefully they can create some thunder and lightning like Clemson

Out of all those guys on that list I think LeSean McCoy is in the best position to put up some decent stats. Pitt does have a few talented runners like Kevin Collier but I think McCoy is a great athlete who will be ready to make things happen after a prep year and a realtively uncrowded backfield (as opposed to the other options).

Brandon Saine. He has insane measurables, and has the production to back it up. This kid can pound the ball, he can catch, and is a home-run threat every down. He could be a perfect speed/power compliment for the power runner Chris Wells.

I'll go with McKnight, he's got the skill set to contribute in many different ways.

Even though he didn't go to LSU I gotta go with Joe McKnight. Can't deny a talent like that.

First of all the kid is half r3tarded. Literally. I will be shocked to see him stay eligible in College.

Second, I'm not sure he ever knew where he wanted to go. After he knew he had to go to Prep school he commited to Miami just to have a fall back school IMO.

Then Graig Cooper who went to the same prep school as McCoy commited to Miami & I don't think he wanted to compete with him.

I'm pretty sure he's not going to sniff the field.

I heard the injury he suffered was horrific and he could be out for a long time.

If Devine can keep up his GPA.... than he makes the greatest impact. because didnt they move that fullback to fulltime tightend? so if they do that they can have both devine and slaton and white in the same backfield... thats deadly, they have to account for all three leaving noel to make plays. But if he cant keep up his GPA.... Its McKnight the kids amazing. I just think that backfield is way to loaded for him to be assured playing time.

see the thing with McKnight tho is that even if he isnt getting a lot of time in the backfield this year, hes going to be in there a ton, playing in the slot and he's probably going to be the punt and kick returner, so McKnight will definately make a HUGE impact this year. IMO

I agree with you, i think Marc Tyler was really the best running back in the class this year. Hes very fast, hes strong and he breaks a ton of tackles. He runs harder than alot of runningbacks ive seen. But unfortunately he probably wont play at all next year. But when him and mcknight are sophs and juniors they will straight up dominate. They are going to be Thunder and Lightning V2.
