AUBURN, Alabama -- Auburn will count on a few newcomers to help with depth next season, but no player will be bigger than running back Cameron Artis-Payne, says ESPN analyst Danny Kanell.
The former Florida State quarterback ranks Artis-Payne, a junior college transfer, No. 3 on his list of the nation's top five newcomers.
"Remember another college transfer just a few years ago? One Cam Newton?" Kanell said Monday on ESPN's College Football Live. "Remember what he did? They have huge expectations for Cameron Artis-Payne, MVP of their A-Day spring game. He can catch it out of the backfield. Him and Tre Mason, together, can be a good 1-2 punch."
Artis-Payne rushed for 117 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries, and also caught two passes for 47 yards in the Tigers' A-Day spring scrimmage on April 20. He enters the summer as the Tigers' No. 2 running back behind Mason, who rushed for 1,002 yards in 2012.
