Stanford running back Bryce Love opted to stay in school for his senior season. His decision vaulted him to the forefront of the running back food chain in college football.
Love is widely regarded as the top running back in college football for the 2018 season. NFL.com draft analyst Chad Reuter ranked Love No. 9 on his top 150 players to watch list for the coming campaign. Here’s what Reuter had to say about the Stanford senior.
“The 2017 Heisman Trophy runner-up decided to return to help his team pursue a Pac-12 championship. He averaged more than 8 yards per carry, including at least one 30-yard run in every game, on his way to 2,118 rushing yards last season. The Cardinal will be better this year than last, which portends another huge year for Love.”
Stanford should be in the running for a Pac-12 title this year. Love will be essential in the Cardinal’s quest for a Pac-12 crown and simultaneously he’ll once again be part of the Heisman Trophy conversation.
