Also returned 26 kickoffs for 549 yards (21.1). Missed the season finale against Louisiana-Lafayette after suffering a concussion during practice. Moved into the starting lineup in '12 and led FBS in rushing yards (1,929) and rushing yards per game (148.4), amassing 303-1,929-23 (6.4) on the ground and 36-303-1 (8.4) receiving. Started all 13 games, setting a school single-season rushing mark. In a five-touchdown performance Nov. 10 against Colorado, he rushed for 366 yards to set the Pac-12 and UA single-game rushing records. Had a pair of run-ins with the law following the season. In December, he was charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct stemming from a domestic violence incident with his then-pregnant ex-girlfriend (the charges were later dropped). In January '13, he was kicked out of a UCLA-UA basketball game at McKale Center following an altercation with a campus security officer. As a result, he was suspended for the ’13 season-opener and did not start the second game. Once he returned to the playing field, he appeared in 12 games (11 starts) and piled up 349-1,885-19 (5.4) rushing and 26-173-1 (6.7) receiving. Surpassed 100 yards rushing in all 12 contests, extending his overall streak to 16 games -- the longest streak in Pac-12 history. Had a pair of four-touchdown games, including a 48-206-4 effort vs. Oregon. Was a consensus All-America selection for the second straight year and concluded his Arizona career as the school's all-time leader in rushing yards (4,239), rushing touchdowns (48) and all-purpose yards (5,483).

Strengths: Outstanding two-year production -- piled up 3,814 yards and 42 touchdowns on the ground from 2012-13, ranking among the nation's most prolific. Terrific compete level and determination -- runs with energy, doesn't go down easily and punctuates runs. Tries to punish tacklers and keeps his legs pumping -- grinds out yards after contact. Good feet, acceleration and lateral agility. Spins off contact. Reliable shot receiver. Gets upfield with urgency after the catch and has enough shiftiness to create. Willing to throw a shoulder blow into rushers. Can handle a heavy workload -- averaged 26 carries per game the last two seasons.
