Carlos Hyde (born September 20, 1991)[1] is an American football running back for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the 49ers in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He played college football at Ohio State.

High School[edit]

Hyde grew up in Cincinnati, OH and attended Princeton High School for his freshmen year. He then moved to Naples, Florida and attended Naples High School for his final 3 years. He rushed for 1,653 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior, and was named Player of the Year after senior season by both the Naples Daily News and the Ft. Myers News-Press.[2] He played on 2007 Naples state champion team and 2008 regional finalist. He also played basketball, ran track and mentored elementary school children.

Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, he was rated as the 2nd best fullback in the nation.[3] He committed to Ohio State over scholarship offers from Florida, Miami (Fl.) and Florida State.[4]

Initially, Hyde didn't qualify academically to enroll at Ohio State. He spent the 2009 fall semester at Fork Union Military Academy in Fork Union, Virginia in order to raise his ACT score.[5]

College career[edit]

Hyde enrolled at Ohio State in January 2010. Hyde played primarily as a backup running back in his first two seasons before breaking out in his junior season with 970 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns in less than 10 games after missing two because of an ankle issue. He was named second-team all-Big Ten that year.[6]

Going into his senior season with high expectations, Hyde was suspended for the first three games of the season after being implicated in an incident at a local bar, though he was not criminally charged in the matter.[7] Hyde returned from his suspension to finish the year strong with 1,282 yards and 14 touchdowns over his last eight games. On October 5, Hyde ran for his 1st 100 yard and multi-touchdown game of the season when he ran for 168 yards and 3 touchdowns when the Buckeyes played Northwestern. Carlos ran for a season high of 246 yards and 4 touchdowns against Illinois on November 16. He was a first-team All-Big Ten selection, and a third-team All-American by the Associated Press.[8]

2014 Season[edit]

There were big expectations for Carlos Hyde coming into an already crowded backfield for the San Francisco 49ers. With so much depth at the position, he had to compete against Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James, Marcus Lattimore, and all time team leader in rushing yards, Frank Gore.[11] As fate would have it, unfortunate turn of events unfolded in favor of Hyde, which catapulted his chances of getting reps and being the second running back behind Gore.

Marcus Lattimore was placed on IR prolonging his debut in the NFL. That left Hyde to carry a bulk of the carries second to Gore. In the season opener against the Cowboys Hyde ran for 50 yards on 7 carries. One of those carries resulted in a touchdown.

Hyde looks to expand his role moving forward and increase his contribution on offense.
