  08/20/19 - RB Jonathan TaylorJr/2021, Wisconsin, 5-11, 219 (DS#2 RB) + More +

  Jonathan Taylor is one of the best running backs in college football. He would be the first to say his success isn't due to just one person. There are, of course, his parents, Elizabeth Taylor and Jonathan James, and several other family members and coaches. But a single observation by a mentor helped change the entire trajectory of Taylor's success as a runner. "I went in and I said, 'Hey, run track. You need to run track,'" recalled Wisconsin running backs coach John Settle.

Settle, who is in his 10th season mentoring the Badgers' rushers, was drawn to Taylor's work ethic while recruiting the New Jersey native in high school. Settle said he noticed watching game film that something was missing from Taylor's repertoire: Breakaway speed. "His junior year, he wasn't breaking any long ones," Settle said. "Everybody was running him down, you know, running him out of bounds. All of a sudden (after running track), he shows up as a senior, and he was leaving people. So about the second or third game, we offered him (a scholarship)." - AP College Football

  08/20/19 - RB Najee HarrisJr/2021, Alabama, 6-1, 227 (DS#4 RB) + More +

  Najee Harris has been a presence in Alabama's backfield since he arrived as one of the nation's top recruits. He just hasn't been the leading man. Harris had to wait his turn behind Damien Harris and eventual first-round NFL draft pick Josh Jacobs the past two seasons before becoming the Crimson Tide's primary tailback. He'll carry that role into this season, when the second-ranked Tide opens against Duke in Atlanta on Aug. 31. "As a running back, anywhere in the country, you always want to get in the game and show people what you want to do," Harris said. "Sometimes, you just have to be patient and wait for your opportunity. It's really just settling down and just waiting for your opportunity to show people what you can do."

Alabama fans and those who watched the past two national championship games already have an idea what Harris can do — even beyond his occasional hurdling of defenders. He was also rated the nation's No. 2 prospect out of Antioch High School in California in the 247Sports composite rankings. Harris has run for 1,153 yards and seven touchdowns in two seasons while averaging 6.5 yards per carry. - AP College Football
