Just a sophomore, Darius Anderson is already coming into his own as an elite Division I running back. He played sparingly as a freshman, but still rushed for more than 200 yards last season.
Anderson is a unique player for TCU as he came out of high school as a four-star prospect and was ranked the No. 3 RB in Texas and No. 11 nationally.
He is showing that the high billing was not a fluke this season. Anderson has 422 rushing yards on 68 carries with a long run of 42 yards and six touchdowns. He is not the only one who can run the ball for the Horned Frogs as 10 players have at least two carries this season. Sewo Olonilau, Kyle Hicks, KaVontae Turpin and Shawn Robinson all have long runs of 39 yards or more.
