ESPN has 5 SEC schools among top 10 in 'RBU' rankings
The SEC has sent a number of elite running backs off to the NFL in recent years, including first-round pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire out of LSU this past April.
Thus, when ESPN recently re-ranked its “Position U” series, it was no surprise to see the “RBU” rankings loaded with SEC squads.
In fact, as you can see here, the SEC had 5 of the top 10 “RBU” schools, led by Alabama at No. 1 overall:
- No. 1 — Alabama
- No. 3 — LSU
- No. 6 — Auburn
- No. 9 — Georgia
- No. 10 — Arkansas
Georgia fans probably feel like that ranking is too low after producing guys like Knowshon Moreno, Nick Chubb, Todd Gurley, Sony Michel and D’Andre Swift (a second-round pick this past draft).
However, one thing is certain — the SEC produces some of the best runners around.
