With the loss of James Conner to the NFL Draft, the Pitt football running back situation is up in the air. Recently, Qadree Ollison was Athlon's pick for the All-ACC Third Team so they believe he'll come out with the job. But the Panthers have several candidates.
Ollison, of course, is one. He won the 2014 ACC Offensive Rookie of the Year Award with more than 1,000 yards on the ground but he was mostly benched last year behind Conner and others. Then there's Chawntez Moss, who looked promising when he got a chance to play and, at times earlier in the year, even looked like the team's best back. There's Darrin Hall, who was ahead of Ollison on the depth chart last year and had a slightly more productive season. On top of that, Pitt has two four-star recruits coming in the fall in Todd Sibley (a one-time Ohio State commit) and A.J. Davis, who had offers from a boatload of major programs.
Who do you think comes out on top for the starting running back job next year?
