North Carolina A&T’s Tarik Cohen is arguably the best player in Black College football, and all of the FCS. If you don’t want to give the 5-foot-6, 173 pound running back that honor, he has to be FCS’s most electric player.
His diminutive size, sprinter speed and elusiveness, makes you think of the great Barry Sanders. And while I am not saying he is the second coming of one of the NFL’s greatest players, his productivity has been Sanders-like at the FCS level.
The junior from Bunn, N.C. has rushed for more than 1,000 yards in his freshman and sophomore seasons, and has already racked up 646 yards, and eight touchdowns heading into Saturday’s game with Howard University.
His athletic ability is off the charts. You see it in his dazzling runs, and he demonstrates it with an incredible, back flip catch that was the rage of You Tube, and earned him appearances on national television.
