Chris Carson on 2017 season: ‘I wish I had another year of eligibility’

Running back Chris Carson is off to chase after his NFL dreams concluding his second full season in Stillwater. Despite missing four games in September and early October, Carson had his most productive year as a Cowboy, rushing for 559 yards in 9 games on 6.8 yards per carry.

He averaged 88 yards per game rushing in the final 5 games of the season. So if his draft stock were to ever be peaking, now is the time.

But knowing how good Oklahoma State might be next season, he’s still wishing he had one more go-round with his team.

“I’m wishing I had another year of eligibility,” Carson told ESPN. “The sky’s the limit for this team and this offense next year. They’re going to be very dangerous, one of the tops in the country.”

With Carson, Barry J. Sanders, and Rennie Childs all moving on after one of it’s most productive seasons on the ground in several years, Oklahoma State would surely welcome the sight of seeing Justice Hill and Carson in the backfield for one more season.

Going into next year, Oklahoma State’s options at running back will be lead by all-american Justice Hill, but outside of him are mostly unproven options. Sophomore Jeff Carr will likely see the field more, and redshirt freshman La’Darren Brown will get his shot as well, as will the running back tandem that is expected to sign in February with Chuba Hubbard and J.D. King.
