  Each of the returners in the running back room offered something a little different. James has flashed a mix of burst and power. Baldwin is smooth and savvy, capable of recognizing his cutback lane and picking up yards in chunks. Ellis is a unique hybrid, a natural receiver who can make plays in space. What makes Carr unique is, in his ideal form, he's a little bit of all of those things. The former five-star prospect just never quite put it all together in four years at USC. Repeated injuries and the depth of the Trojans' backfield made it hard for Carr to settle in as a three-down back. But he was highly regarded as a recruit because he flashed an ability to do it all, turning on a dime and making people miss, churning out tough yards, when necessary. What he's proven most is his ability to catch passes out of the backfield.

Carr's upside potential is intriguing, especially with the departure of Scott. But at the very least, Carr's arrival brings competition to IU's running back room. Yes, James has the makings of an every-down back. But he could never quite surpass Scott for carries. Yes, Baldwin and Ellis have talent. But they don't have a ton of experience. Carr will push James, Baldwin, and Ellis to their maximum, and he will also serve as insurance against failure. But if the situation merits, it's not out of the question that McCullough splits carries between two or three. Devine Redding and Jordan Howard were both 1,000-yard rushers in 2015. Along with Tevin Coleman's 2,000-yard season in '14, D'Angelo Roberts had 107 runs for 493 yards. - Herald-Review Times
