5. Hosey Williams, Cincinnati

The diminutive halfback led the Bearcats in rushing with 655 yards and found the end zone four times in 2013. Hailing from Miami, the former junior college All-American enters his final year of eligibility as the game-changing piece of Tommy Tuberville's deep backfield.

Williams will be splitting time with Ralph Abernathy and Tion Green in 2014. Abernathy led the team in carries last season (132) while Green had the Bearcats' most rushing touchdowns (7). Williams, however, is the most explosive of the three, having averaged 5.7 yards per carry last season.
