Apparently a lot of you have as well. Reader Jon Jester sent me a terrific email breaking down all the freshman RBs who have played in recent memory. Here’s his email with commentary and a pretty chart.You guys keep the great emails coming!I promise I think about more than just the RB mayhem in Stillwater, but i found some stats on former freshman RBs at OSU in recent years and felt like I would pass them on. I guess our ultimate question is: Where will Justice Hill fit into this a year from now?

I have added in Herschel Sims and Caleb Muncrief. Apologies for the mistake earlier. You can check it against all the RBs from the Mike Gundy era here.A few thoughts on this.• Can you imagine a freshman and a juco transfer getting 100+ carries in the same season like what happened in 2006 with Toston and Savage? Holy smokes, OSU has come a long way in just a decade.• I’ve thought following their freshman years, respectively, that Carr and Childs had great years as freshman, and then I look at what Hunter/Toston/Randle did and I get all nostalgic about feeling what that was like to have a freshman have a season like that and know that we have three more years of that dude running the football for us.• Modern day OSU RBs have to wait for their shot behind the older guys which can be a good thing because it shows progression from guys that have been in the system (right?)• Joe Randle with almost equal totals of rushing and receiving yards, but he had 50 less receptions than carries. HB slip screen in its heyday.• Jeff Carr got in the end zone the most as a freshman RB since… Joe Randle.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
