Arizona Wildcats Fall Camp: UA Has Options, Depth At Running Back

They may not all be big, household names, but the Wildcats backfield figures to be solid this upcoming season. 

Keola Antolin, when healthy, adds a certain dynamic to the offense when on the field. He may not be the biggest or fastest guy, but he fights for those extra yards every time he touches the ball. Durability has been an issue over his career, but hopefully he is able to stay away from the training room his senior season.

Daniel Jenkins is the wildcard in all of the running back discussions. He only has eight career rush attempts and nothing about his game is particularly sexy, but he has earned rave reviews from both his coaches and media in attendance during the summer and fall camps. Jenkins is definitely a player to keep your eye on.

And then there's the No. 1 recruit from the 2011 recruiting class, Ka'Deem Carey. The local prospect out of Canyon Del Oro High School in Tucson was the highest ranked recruit for UA since Rob Gronkowski's arrival four years ago, and he has the potential to be one of the better running backs in recent history if his success in high school was any indication. Everyone must remember Carey is just a freshman and to not place unfair expectations on him, though. His time will come.
