Notes:
Burst onto the scene in 2004, setting a single-season freshman rushing record with 1,925 yards...A consensus All-American that finished second in the Heisman balloting as a freshman...A First-Team All-Big 12 selection in 2005 after rushing for 1,108 yards and 14 touchdowns...Missed about half of his junior season with a broken collarbone, but still earned First-Team All-Big 12 honors, rushing for 1,012 yards and 12 scores...Leaves Oklahoma as the third leading rusher in school history with 4,045 career yards...Had 41 rushing touchdowns in his three year career...Tough competitor with great size andframe...Is strong and powerful...Has great speed and is explosive...Excelled against top level competition...The biggest concern is durability...Tends to run too high at times...Didn't catch many passes at Oklahoma.
