Insane weight room workouts are one thing when it comes to college football. Amazing, yes, but they surface so often these days that it takes something truly extraordinary to move the needle.

Tennessee running back Jalen Hurd is a physical specimen in his own right – a punishing force in the Vols’ backfield prone to breaking two or three tackles on any given run. But Hurd is trying to become a more complete back, and one way he’s doing so is by increasing his stamina and explosiveness.

Hurd rushed for 1,288 yards and 12 touchdowns as a sophomore last season. Expect those totals to increase in 2016.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
