Former BYU Cougars running back Joshua Quezada has reportedly transferred to the Fresno St. Bulldogs according to Duane Busby who is BYU's director of football operatons. There is no official word from Fresno State on this move, but it would make sense since Quezada was recruited by Fresno State back in 2010.
Quezada decided to transfer from BYU back in July, but the reason is not completely certain. It probably came from that he was not going to be given the No. 1 spot, and that he would be splitting carries with Michael Alisa who is looking like the starting running back for BYU. This year BYU is extremely loaded at the running back spot, and the odds of having one premiere running back was not going to happen. BYU is likely going to spread the ball around to possibly four running backs, so the the carries that Quezada would be looking for would not be there at BYU.
Quezada came on the scene as a freshman where he rushed for a solid 505 yards, scored five touchdowns and averaged 5.1 yards a carry. In 2011 his production dropped quite a bit as he rushed for 298 yards, had one touchdown and averaged a mere 3.47 yards per carry.
