Nick Wilson looks awfully similar to Ka'Deem Carey

Sep 13, 2014

There goes Ka'Deem Carey again. Or so it seems. Arizona's all-time leading rusher is now in the NFL, but freshman Nick Wilson is sure doing a great job imitating the Wildcat great.

Arizona needed Wilson to carry the ball 29 times in a 35-28 win against Nevada, and the running back produced to the tune of 171 yards and two touchdowns. The rush you see above showed a burst at the line not too dissimilar from what Carey brought -- but maybe Wilson has a little more breakaway speed than his predecessor.

Now the only issue for Rich Rodriguez is this: Once senior and opening day starter Terris Jones-Grigsby is healthy, who gets the snaps?
