Louisville enjoyed great success running the ball with Jawhar Jordan and Isaac Guerendo (and a really good offensive line) in 2023. The pair tallied 1938 yards and 24 TDs collectively on the ground. That’s going to be a lot to replace, but Jeff Brohm has gone to the portal and picked up two seasoned transfers, added two freshman from the high school ranks and has Maurice Turner and Keyjuan Brown already on the roster. Can Louisville be as explosive from RB in 2024 as they were in 2023? We’ll see, but they have options.

Peny Boone began his career as a part of Maryland’s 20202 recruiting class where he spent 2 seasons before transferring to Toledo for 2022 & 2023. Boone’s 1619 yards from scrimmage finished ranked 8th in FBS Football in 2023.

Donald Chaney, Jr. has spent 4 years at Miami and had his biggest seasons in his first and last with the Hurricanes. Originally from Homestead Chaney got 68 carries for 322 yards and 3 TDs as a true freshman but tore his ACL during the 2021 season and limited to just one game in 2022. Chaney may have multiple years of eligibility left with Louisville if he chooses.

Maurice Turner had a lot of hype coming off a strong close to the 2022 season but failed to really “POP” during 2023 like he did to close his freshman year. Still, Turner had some flashes. If Maurice wants to become that every down back for the Cards he’s going to have to run more consistently. He certainly has the speed and ‘wiggle’ that you’d want at Running Back so maybe he’ll challenge Boone and Chaney during the Spring and Summer.

Keyjaun Brown got 11 carries vs. Murray State. Those carries were STRONG for 5.91 yards per carry plus a TD. It was a little strange that he didn’t get any additional action during the year, especially as the Cards were looking for help at RB with Jawhar and Isaac both dealing with injuries. This Spring & Summer are BIG for Brown to get more into the mix. He looks the part.

Running Back is a place where freshman with juice can come in and make an impact. Isaac Brown and Duke Watson both might fit the bill. Give Isaac Brown the early leg up only because he’s enrolling early at UofL and will participate in Spring practice with the Cards. But that doesn’t mean we should sleep on Duke Watson. Watson rushed for 5541 yards and 74 TDs during his high school career including 1865 yards and 30 TDs as a senior.
