Running Back: Trey Sermon, Jr., Oklahoma
Trey Sermon is another highly recruited 4-star player on this list. He has excellent size for a running back at 6-0 and 220 pounds. He has good speed combined with power and nastiness to run defenders over on contact.
As a true freshman in 2017, Sermon was in and out of Lincoln Riley’s doghouse but was still able to accumulate 744 yards and 5 touchdowns in three starts. Last year, he started 12 games after Rodney Anderson went down because of injury. He made his presence felt throughout the season with 947 yards, 13 touchdowns, and an impressive 5.8 yards per carry. He also contributed 181 yards on 12 receptions as a receiver out of the backfield.
If Sermon continues to mature on and off the field, there is no limit to his ceiling. He definitely has the talent to sneak into the first round next year if he can put together a good 2019 season.
