  The Cougars will be without McCaskill for most, if not all, of the season after he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee late in the spring. McCaskill had a sensational freshman season, rushing for nearly 1,000 yards and 16 touchdowns to earn AAC Rookie of the Year. He made an impact from the start and became the type of every-down back that has been in short supply at UH.

There is no timetable for his return, but it's clear the Cougars will not have one of their top offensive weapons for an extended period in what is likely the school's final year in the AAC before a move to the Big 12. "Can he get back to the point he can play in a couple of games?" coach Dana Holgorsen said. "That's not my decision, either. That's medical decisions. If that happens, great. If not, we'll get him ready for spring (2023)." Not only was McCaskill so valuable as a workhorse (team-high 189 carries), but he also was a threat to catch passes out of the backfield (21 receptions for 113 yards and two touchdowns). McCaskill, one of the top-rated signees in school history, lived up to the hype with his 16 rushing touchdowns a freshman record and the second-most by any UH player in a single season, behind quarterback Greg Ward Jr.'s 21 in 2015. "I'm here to be legendary and break records," McCaskill said during his first year. - Houston Chronicle
