He also had four games of 30-plus yards receiving and two games of four rushing TDs (at Washington, vs. Oregon) and five total of at least two rushing TDs. For the season, he totaled 1,716 yards and 17 touchdowns in 11 games. His career total rushing is 4,070 yards and 46 touchdowns on 716 carries and 35 games.

Rob Rang describes him with the following strengths:

"“Demonstrated greater power and determination on interior runs as well as the vision and sharp cutting ability in 2013.”"

He’s been timed with a 4.53 40-yard dash.

In early November, it was written about Carey, who is the 44th-rated overall player:

"“Clearly bigger and stronger than a year ago, Carey is once again leading the country in rushing yards. Other backs across the country may be the more chic pick, but Carey’s consistency speaks for itself.”"
