There’s a lot to like about these two running backs heading into the season.
Jonathan Taylor and J.K. Dobbins are not just some of the best running backs in the B1G; they are some of the best in the country. Both players are coming off strong seasons and looking for even better years in 2019.
FOX College Football analyst and former Heisman winner Reggie Bush released his top five running backs for the season in a segment Friday evening, and he had both B1G stars on the list. Bush had Dobbins at No. 4 as the latest in a long line of great backs for the Buckeyes:
“His running style reminds me a little bit of Ezekiel Elliott,” explained Bush, “But just another productive running back from Ohio State.”
When it comes to Taylor, he was at the top of Bush’s list. That is no surprise after a 2,000-yard season for Taylor in 2018:
“He is the best running back in college football, period,” said Bush.
The rest of his top five were Eno Benjamin of Arizona State, D’Andre Swift of Georgia, and Travis Etienne of Clemson. You can check out his entire FOX College Football segment below:
