Video: Nation's top two backs in same IMG Academy backfield
Trey Sanders is the No. 1 rated running back in Class of 2019 and No. 7 recruit overall.
Now that he is, he told 247Sports
his list of inspirations were quite diverse, from the shifty, speedy moves of Tavon Austin
, to the powerful styles of Derrick Henry
and Najee Harris
The 5-foot-11, 217-pound Sanders is not only the top-ranked running back in the country and No. 7 recruit overall, but he also makes up the most dynamic backfield in the land.
Watch the video above to see Sanders and Noah Cain
, the nation's No. 2 rated back from the Class of 2019, running past, and through, defenders last season at IMG.
"Growing up I wanted to be the No. 1 running back, be the top player in the country," Sanders told 247Sports.
Said Sanders' brother Umstead: "We grew up watching other No. 1 running backs. We watched them growing up saying it's cool to see these people are No. 1 never really thinking and then out of nowhere he blew up and became No. 1 so quick."
