“We’ll win with or without you,” Oklahoma running backs coach Cale Gundy told Peterson, the nation’s No. 1 overall prospect in the recruiting class of 2004.
Thus began a bountiful relationship for both player and coach. Peterson became a superstar at Oklahoma and is now one of the NFL’s greatest running backs, and Gundy has continued to reap the benefits of signing Peterson to this day.
Gundy and the Sooners have reeled in at least one top-15 running back each year since 2010, with Katy (Texas) High senior Rodney Anderson becoming the latest with his commitment earlier this month. Gundy’s process for finding those backs, though, involves far more than just watching film and assessing on-field talent.
“I really almost try to scare players away when I recruit running backs,” Gundy said in an interview with The Oklahoman.

RB DeMarco Murray, So., 6-0, 191, Oklahoma. Scout’s take: “Bob (Stoops) has had a bunch of terrific runners there, and I’m telling you, this kid could be his best. Including Adrian Peterson. His speed, he hits the high gear immediately. He’s a hard runner, but he’s not the tough inside guy Peterson was. At least not yet.” Link

Now, Fox NFL Analyst Brian Baldinger believe Darren McFadden will be a BUST
“I think he’s the colossal bust in this draft. He doesn’t run with patience. He’s a very incomplete back who tries to run you over. If he gets a crease, he can take it to the house. But he doesn’t break tackles and he fumbles. I’m not impressed.” – Fox Sports NFL analyst Brian Baldinger on Arkansas running back Darren McFadden.
