Paul Perkins – Running Back
Perkins showed what he could do on the field as he was 15th in the nation in rushing yards.
We are now getting into the danger zone. The super-talented junior Bruins that could make the jump to the pros. Though Bruin fans will be behind these players 100%, we will also dearly miss them if they choose to leave early.
The first of these two players made a huge impact last season during his red shirt sophomore year. Perkins was not only the Pac-12’s leading rusher, but was also a all-Pac-12 honorable mention, which Bruin fans feel is a bit of a slap in the face as he should have been a first-team selection.
Either way, that did not stop Perkins as he showed what he could do on the field as he was 15th in the nation in rushing yards and is looking to continue that feat next season as some are speculating he will be a Heisman contender.
