With the departure of FAU’s all-time leading rusher, Devin Singletary, Owl fans are looking for someone special carry the ball next season.

Look no further folks, you may have found him.

The way he glides across the turf and will resurrect the now depleted backfield, he might be the next great back for Owl Nation to cheer on.

McCammon highlights and workout.

Larry McCammon III also has similarities to the NFL bound Singletary. Both athletes are currently about 5’10” and hovering around 200 pounds. Both, three-star players coming out of high school. Also, both have head coaches that absolutely admire the way they play the game.

“I can’t even…he is probably the best back I’ve ever coached,” said Hoover High School head coach Josh Niblett to Ben Thomas of AL.com.

McCammon has all it takes to be a freshman All-America when he steps onto the football field this fall. He has good speed, listed at 4.82 seconds in the 40-yard dash, but plays at about 4.5. He has great elusiveness, listed at 4.51 seconds in the shuttle, but again, plays much faster at about 4.2-4.3 range according to 247 sports.  His fluidity as a runner allows him to use a plethora of moves including the spin move, the juke, the stiff arm, and the all-important, running right over the intended tackler.

“He’s just an all-round great back. He’s a great pass blocker [too],” divulged Hoover junior quarterback, Robby Ashford in his conversation with Thomas.

With all this praise and talent surrounding this guy, it is very surprising he is not getting many looks from the power-five conferences.

He is a steal and huge props go to Lane Kiffin and his staff for signing the blue chip prospect in sheep’s clothing.

FAU is poised to improved their record next season with some returning talent including WR Willie Wright, QB Chris Robison and the addition of former Alabama RB, B.J. Emmons.

Lane Kiffin also has appointed former Charlotte 49ers defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer for the same position on his staff. Last season the 49ers had the 11th ranked defense in the country, allowing 88.5 rushing yard per game.
