Ranking the top 25 underclassmen in college football for 2012 season - NCF - ESPN
Carey is the third of 4 running backs on the list. TJ Yeldon (Bama) and Todd Gurley (GA) are just in front of him.
15. Ka'Deem Carey, Arizona Wildcats
Sophomore running back
Carey, who ranks seventh in the FBS in all-purpose yards, is not a powerful runner who can bulldoze linebackers. That does not mean he isn't effective between the tackles, however. He doesn't miss many open creases and he excels at pressing the line of scrimmage and getting linebackers to commit to a gap before bouncing outside or cutting back. He's quick enough to get outside and he rarely goes down on contact once he gets into space.
In addition, he's as strong on third down as he is on first and second. He is a reliable receiver who can produce after the catch, and the awareness he showed in pass protection against Stanford was impressive.
