Wildcats' Ka'Deem Carey Tabbed As A Breakout Player

Arizona sophomore running back Ka'Deem Carey had a modest freshman season in 2011, but he played well enough to draw some national attention. Carey was named as one of 30 potential breakout players in 2012 by Travis Haney of ESPN Insider.

Carey was ranked as the No. 15 breakout player with Haney citing his speed as one of the main reasons why. Carey, who rushed for 425 yards and six touchdown on 91 attempts last season, was compared to former Rich Rodriguez pupils Steve Slaton and Noel Devine.

With a senior quarterback, Matt Scott, and a line that returns all five starters, Carey is primed for a jump with his new coach's spread system.

This isn't the first time Carey has earned praise this offseason. Arizona running back coach Calvin Magee complimented him earlier this season telling the Arizona Daily Star "I love him. He's solid, head to toe. He's got enough speed to be very good."

Carey will get his first chance to show how good he really is Saturday when the Wildcats open their season against Toledo.
