As a freshman Robert Turbin didn't see a ton of action for Utah State — carrying the ball just 106 times for 485 yards — as the Aggies relied on quarterback Diondre Borel as the primary runner.

That will change this year with the sophomore becoming the featured back in a more balanced offensive game plan.

Turbin, a 5-foot-10, 212-pound physical specimen has Aggie fans, and coaches, excited about the potential he displayed after assuming the starting role midway through the season last year.

"I think he can be tremendous player," USU coach Gary Andersen said. "His upside is way high. He has all the intangibles."
