As a freshman in 2018, Allgeier was thrust into action due to injuries, seeing time in four games and gaining 49 yards on 9 carries (5.4 ypc).
44 of those 49 cards came on one breakaway run, so he’ll need to prove he can consistently pick up positive yards if he’s going to see touches in 2019.
Finau played four games on special teams in 2018, which should allow him to still consider the season a redshirt year.
The Salt Lake City native was a 3-star recruit from the 2016 class, and he’s a smaller back that will have to show he’s got the speed and vision to earn touches next year.
After playing two years on defense for the Cougars, Fonua switched to running back for the 2018 season. He spent the year on the scout team, much like Katoa did in 2017, and if he’s not able to earn time as a runner there’s a decent chance he could return to the defense in 2019.
It’s likely that Griffits will take over the starting fullback duties with the graduation of El-Bakri. Because of that, he’ll play a big role in the offense, but won’t become a featured back in terms of touches.
