It is no secret Texas running back Bijan Robinson is one of the most electric offensive players in college football.

The junior-to-be rushed for 1,127 yards and 11 touchdowns on a 5.8 yards per carry clip in 2021. Robinson added 295 yards and four more touchdowns in the receiving game as well. An elbow injury held his 2021 season to just 10 games.

Robinson returns with Heisman aspirations and will lead a Texas offense with loads of potential for improvement.

247Sports released a list of college football’s top 25 running backs entering the 2022 season.

Based on a variety of factors, including last season’s numbers, what we’re hearing from insiders after spring practice, NFL Draft buzz and projecting 2022 production among their peers.

The Texas superstar took the No. 1 spot on the list followed by a slew of other talented backs. Kansas State’s Deuce Vaughn checks in at No. 4 and Texas A&M’s Devon Achane is listed at No. 9.

Here is a look at the top 10 running backs in 247Sports’ rankings.
