The Red Raiders return all three of its top rushers, and add four star running back Corey Dauphine. DeAndre Washington rushed for over 1,000-yards for the first time at Texas Tech since 1998, and he looks to build on that momentum for the 2015 season. Justin Stockton is an excellent compliment to Washington, and is a threat to score from anywhere on the field. Last year, two of Stockton’s four touchdowns came from 69 and 75-yards out. Quinton White also brings a lot to the table in terms of his pass-catching abilities and his skill in the open field. All three backs were great last year running routes and in pass protection, which helped bump them up to the number two spot with TCU.
