2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 71 Days!

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

DeMarco Murray entered college ranked as the No. 1 high school running back by ESPN. After receiving a redshirt in 2006, the youngster burst onto the scene earning accolades as well as setting records. That was until a dislocated knee sidelined Murray for the remainder of the season and into the spring.

However, Murray returned the following season. By the time the start finished his career, his hands out of the back field may have been his most underrated skill. In 2010, Murray set a single season school for receptions by a running back at 71. The effort pushed the now NFL player to 1,571 receiving yards, another career record at the position.
