10. Tie: British Brooks, North Carolina
After British Brooks, a former walk-on, ran for 53 yards in the Orange Bowl vs. Texas A&M — with Javonte Williams and Michael Carter sitting out — expectations rose heading into the 2021 season. Tennessee transfer Ty Chandler, however, became UNC’s go-to running back: 173 carries for 1,063 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Instead, Brooks finished fourth on the roster with only 26 carries for 223 yards and three touchdowns. Brooks had his best game, though, during North Carolina’s collapse at. NC State. Despite the loss, Brooks ran for a career-best 124 yards on 15 carries.
