2002 Recruiting: Running Backs

The Wildcats got good production from their running backs in 2001. Clarence Famrmer had a stellar season, while Tremaine Cox, Leo Mills and Anthony Fulcher were all strong. Mills departs, but the position will be crowded witht he likes of Gainus Scott and Mike Bell coming off of a redshirt season. The Wildcats have three talented runners coming in, but will it be enough to earn playing time?

Beau Carr

HT: 6-0
WT: 195
40: 4.5
Ratings: #68 (***
Home:Houston, TX (Westfield HS)

Carr is a quick, slasher type who has great potential. He is one of the better runners in Texas. In addition to being a standout runner, he is also a good receiver out of the backfield.

2002 Projection: Carr will be in a battle to be the third half back. Along with fellow true freshmen Ra'Shawn Moseley and Gilbert Harris, Carr will have a tough time beating out returners like Gainus Scott and possibly Tremaine Cox and Anthony Fulcher (if they move from fullback). Most likely Carr will redshirt.

Ra'Shawn Mosley

 R Mosley

HT: 5-11
WT: 178
40: 4.4
Rankings: #71 (***)
Home: San Antonio, TX (Southwest HS)

Mosely is a small, but speedy and productive back. He rushed for 1125 yards and 15 TD's on 125 carries. He is said to possess terrific vision and outstanding balance. He played in the US Army East/West All-Star game this season. He is also a terrific kick returner.

2002 Outlook: Mosely may have a leg up on the other freshman RB's as he may run back kicks and can also play receiver. He is a skilled runner who has blazing speed. Most likely he is a candidate to redshirt, but he may very well see the field this fall.

Gilbert Harris

HT: 6-2
WT: 195
40: 4.43
Rankings: #104 (**
Home: San Antonio, TX (Churchill HS)

Harris was another early commitment, verballing in August. He's a big back with great speed, strength and balance. He's a similar player to Clarence Farmer. He's been a HB, but could also play FB, WR or even ILB. He has the speed and ability to be an impact runner, but the tools to make a move. Tom Lemmings has him rated as the 98th best player in the Soutwest Region (Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana).
