FS MARQUIS FLOWERS SOPHOMORE
Young defensive back is blossoming into a playmaker
Last season was a rebuilding year for the Wildcats' secondary, and it was vulnerable to big plays. Flowers, who lettered in 13 games as a true freshman in 2010, inherits the job as the starting free safety and has the speed and range to thwart those deep balls. Stoops compares Flowers with Arizona's 2007 Jim Thorpe Award winner, Antoine Cason.
RB KA'DEEM CAREY FRESHMAN
Prolific high school back has the skills to step in
Carey racked up 5,702 yards and 82 TDs rushing for Canyon del Oro High in Tucson, displaying the combination of speed and power of elite running back recruits. His presence in the backfield may help open up the play-action pass for Foles.
