Before scoring playoff touchdowns and keeping defenses on their toes due to a lethal skillset, former Washington Redskins wide receiver Antwaan Randle El was a very talented college quarterback at Indiana University.
Now, 13 years after his college career concluded, the 2001 First Team consensus All-American is up for possible enshrinement in the College Football Hall of Fame.
Randle El is one of 75 players from the Football Bowl Subdivision that could become a member of the Class of 2015.
Before running through some of his accolades and remembering his time with the Redskins, check out some highlights of his days as the Hoosiers’ quarterback below:
At the time of his college career’s end, Randle El had rushed for the most yards ever (3,895) by a quarterback in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
He also threw for 7,469 yards and 42 touchdowns.
Randle El was a member of the Redskins from 2006-09, recording 2,202 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. He also served as the team’s emergency quarterback during that time while also occasionally slinging it around on a trick play.
In fact, Randle El connected on 6-of-9 pass attempts — two of which went for touchdowns — as a member of the Redskins.
The announcement of the 2015 Hall of Fame class will be made live on Jan. 9, 2015, in conjunction with the College Football Playoff Championship Weekend.
