#28 RB Trevon Sands - Junior, 5’11”, 211 lbs.
2017: Still behind D’Ernest Johnson and Darius Tice, Sands ran for 111 yards on 26 touches. He was also a missile on special teams, recording five tackles.
2016: Sands appeared in the final nine games of the season, although all of his touches were in a four-game stretch between Cincinnati and Temple. He carried the ball eight times for 26 yards. When he wasn’t on offense, he was on the kick coverage units, where he made seven tackles.
How He Came To USF: Sands played several positions at Miami Southwest High School. He ran for 447 yards and caught passes for 413 more in 2014, scoring a total of 14 touchdowns. He also played quarterback and defensive back during his time with the Eagles, and returned kicks. Sands chose USF early in the 2015 recruiting cycle and stuck them all the way through, turning down offers from West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Cincinnati, among others. It’s not clear why he didn’t appear on the 2015 roster, but we think it might have been a grayshirt.
