Head to Head: Arizona v. Colorado

Continuing the Arizona/Colorado debate, 24-7Football.com moves to the RBs as we do video comparisons of Covuaghn Deboskie and Darius Turner

24-7Football.com moves to the backfield as we continue our battle over who has the top players, Arizona or Colorado.


Deboskie v. Turner




Darius Turner played at Doherty HS in Colorado Springs last year but is not originally from Colorado. He moved to the state as a result of the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina. He seemed to adapt well and his impact on the football field was immediate. The 5-11 180 pound Turner rushed for 1800 yards and 24 TDs last year in route to all conference and all state honors. He ran a blazing forty at the Scout.com combine in LA, turning in a 4.47 forty. Turner is currently a 3-star prospect by Scout.com, ranked in the Midlands top 50 and ranked the #59 running back in the country. Surprisingly Darius does not hold a single division-one offer.


Here are clips of Turner in action, you can see the speed that he possesses. He wears #5:



Deboskie leads a pack of very talented backs in Arizona. He made a name for himself last year by rushing for 1300 yards and scoring 22 TDs. He is also a threat out of the backfield with 452 reception yards and 2 more scores. Also at the Scout combine in LA, Deboskie clocked a 4.38 hand timed forty and was named the MVP of the entire event. He was one of the most recruited backs in the country with offers from Alabama, Colorado State, Cal, Mississippi State, Oregon, Clemson, Nebraska, Washington State, Florida, Michigan, UCLA, Navy, Illinois, Georgia Tech, TCU, Arizona, ASU, Oregon State and Stanford. The 5-11 190 pounder is currently a 4-star prospect by Scout.com, ranked in the Southwest top 50 and is the #14 RB in the country by Scout.


Deboskie wears #33 and can be seen in the following clips:
