7 Travaris Cadet
One of the most explosive players in the nation ... due to his game-breaking skills, ASU tries to get him the ball in a number of different ways, using him as a rusher, receiver and punt and kickoff returner ... after spending his first season at ASU lining up everywhere from quarterback to wide receiver, Cadet settled in at running back last year and responded with an all-conference campaign despite working primarily in a reserve role behind incumbent starter Devon Moore ... enters his senior campaign as the unquestioned starter at running back and will likely continue his role as the Mountaineers' primary return specialist ... could become even more productive having spent an entire offseason knowing what position he would play for the first time in his collegiate career ... has impressed professional scouts with his tremendous speed and athleticism to go along with a sturdy 6-1, 210-pound frame ... has worked on eliminating fumbles that have been an issue at times throughout his career ... widely regarded as one of the program's hardest workers and most team-oriented players.

2010: Moved from wide receiver to running back during preseason camp ... played in all 13 games but made only seven starts with all but three coming in as the second running back in two-back sets ... despite the late move to the position and reserve status, earned second-team all-Southern Conference recognition at RB from the league's coaches and media ... led all ASU running backs with 115 carries for 671 yards, a 5.8-yards-per-rush average and six touchdowns, all of which ranked second on the team behind only All-America quarterback DeAndre Presley ... also ranked fifth on the team with 19 receptions for 218 yards and a score ... returned 32 kickoffs for 733 yards (22.9 avg. - good for third in the SoCon) and 12 punts for 72 yards (6.0 avg.) ... ranked second in the conference and 29th nationally with 1,694 all-purpose yards (130.3 per game) ... campaign got off to rocky start when he fumbled on his first carry of the season, which set up a Chattanooga touchdown ... wound up rushing just three times for three yards and catching one pass for eight yards in the Mountaineers' 42-41 come-from-behind season-opening win at UTC ... after a somewhat pedestrian 73-yard effort in the home opener versus Jacksonville, exploded for 149 yards on just eight carries (18.6 ypr), including a 52-yard touchown run in a rout over North Carolina Central ... amassed 214 all-purpose yards, including 59 on eight rushes and 79 on three receptions, in win over The Citadel ... took a short pass from Presley and galloped 73 yards for Presley's school-record-tying fifth touchdown pass of the game in the rout over The Citadel ... despite battling an abdominal injury throughout, torched Western Carolina for 80 yards and a score on nine carries ... was a workhorse the following week against Furman, rushing an ASU season-high 24 times for 108 yards and a career-best three touchdowns in a 37-26 victory ... also caught two passes for 17 yards, returned three kickoffs for 93 yards and two punts for nine yards to total a career-best 227 all-purpose yards in the win over FU ... returned seven kickoffs for 120 yards in regular-season finale at Florida ... rushed 12 times for 80 yards, including a 46-yard touchdown on the third play of the game, and caught two passes for 11 yards in season-ending loss to Villanova.

2009: Saw action in all 14 games, primarily as a backup quarterback, wide receiver and punt returner ... was slated to be ASU's third quarterback going into the season but was the backup behind DeAndre Presley for the opener at East Carolina due to an injury suffered by starter Armanti Edwards during the offseason ... after ASU fell into a 29-7 hole, Cadet made his debut with 5:28 remaining in the third quarter and engineered three-consecutive scoring drives to cut the deficit to 29-24 ... trailing by five points with 1:28 to play, he drove the Mountaineers to midfield but the comeback bid ended when CoCo Hillary couldn't haul in his fourth-down pass with 16 seconds to go ... in just over a quarter of work, he rushed 15 times for 35 yards and a touchdown and completed 7-of-9 passes for 55 yards while nearly pulling off the come-from-behind upset at ECU ... following the season opener, he slid into the No. 2 quarterback spot and backed up Edwards for the rest of the season ... he also retained his role as ASU's primary punt returner (24 ret., 134 yds., 5.6 avg. for the season) and was in for a handful of snaps each week at wide receiver (four rec., 21 yds. for the season) ... despite the limited action, he finished the year as ASU's third-leading rusher (366 yards and three touchdowns on 70 carries - 5.2 avg.) ... came off the bench to rush eight times for 68 yards and a touchdown in win over North Carolina Central ... rushed 11 times for a career-high 131 yards and a touchdown and completed 4-of-7 passes for 64 yards in just a little more than a quarter at quarterback in 52-16 rout over Georgia Southern ... when Edwards was injured late in the first half of SoCon-clinching win at Elon, Cadet ran seven times for 47 yards (also caught an eight-yard pass from Edwards during 27-10 win) ... made his first-career start at QB a week later in regular-season finale versus Western Carolina, running 17 times for 58 yards and completing 8-of-16 passes for a career-best 101 yards ... also had a would-be 75-yard punt-return touchdown called back due to a penalty prior to ASU's first series versus WCU ... saw limited action in three FCS playoff games with no offensive stats ... jump-started ASU's potential game-tying drive with a 24-yard kickoff return late in the national semifinal loss at Montana.

Previous Colleges: Attended the University of Toledo in 2007, where he redshirted as a freshman wide receiver ... transferred to Pearl River C.C. (Poplarville, Miss.) and played in two games at wide receiver before suffering an ankle injury that caused him to miss the rest of the season ... caught two passes for 21 yards in his only action at Pearl River ... coached by Tim Hatten.

High School: Rated as a three-star recruit and the nation's No. 19 dual-threat quarterback by Rivals.com coming out of Miami Central H.S. in 2007 ... threw for 1,391 yards and 13 touchdowns and ran for more than 450 yards and two scores as a senior at Miami Central ... also served as team's punter and place kicker as a prep ... named first-team all-Dade County by the Miami Herald following senior campaign ... helped lead squad to an 11-2 record and third round of Florida's 6-A state playoffs as a senior in 2006, with only two losses coming at the hands of eventual state champion Miami Northwestern ... coach by Manny Wright.
