San Diego State picked up some running back depth on Friday when new was reported that running back Lucky Radley was leaving the University of Utah to become an Aztec. Radley did not participate in Utah's spring practice at all so it is not too surprising that he decided to leave the program, plus the Utes have a lot of running back depth and carries likely would have been few and far between for Radley.
Last year, Radley saw action in 11 games for Utah and had just 59 carries for 284 yards and two touchdowns. He is a former All-State and All-CIF selection coming out of Inglewood, California, back in 2009. His time at Utah saw him as a primary back up but with meaningful carries.
Radley has already earned his bachelor's degree in sociology and will be eligible to play right away for his final season in San Diego State; he also will be a walk-on.
As for his role with the Aztecs, sophomore D.J. Pumphrey likely has the starting roll locked up, and Radley will be battling with junior Chase Price and redshirt freshman Marcus Stamps.
This is not an earth shattering move for the Aztecs with this addition but it will at the very worst add some depth to the running game, and give Radley a chance to earn some playing time which he likely would not have seen if he stayed at Utah.
