STATS | Dauphine rushed for 507 yards on 95 carries and 13 touchdowns.  Dauphine shared the ball this year with another terrific running back, 2016 player, Kameron Martin.

THE PLAYER SPEAKS | There was a bit about Dauphine's commitment at the end of the article regarding the commitment of JUCO OT Shaquille Davis (via LAJ):

"He was talking to me and sounded like I can be good for them," Dauphine said. "I feel like I could be good in their offense because we run the same offense in our high school."

"We run the same offense and I wouldn’t really have to get used to it or anything because I’m already doing it," Dauphine said. "Texas Tech, they’re one of my favorite schools since I was little."

SCOUTING REPORT | I really love the power that Dauphine runs with such strength and power, it's pretty impressive from a standpoint that this isn't something that Texas Tech has, which is a bigger back, a back over 6'0", and that's great for Texas Tech.  Dauphine is a bigger back, but he doesn't seem to lack for speed.  Dauphine looks to be a fluid running back and he runs with toughness and aggression.  He doesn't like being tackled (not many running backs do).

Dauphine has to be tackled by two or three players and he mentions that this is part of his running style (via PANews):

"I don’t like being tackled by one person," Dauphine said. "When I am being tackled, it better be by two or three people. I never think of how many people are trying to take me down at the moment. I just try to keep my legs moving and do whatever I can for our team."

This last article also mentions that Dauphine was out for almost all of his sophomore year with an injury and shared duties with Martin this past year. At the end of the article, it also mentions that Dauphine was supposedly, although it is not being reported by any of the recruiting services linked above, offered by Oklahoma St. Arkansas and Houston and that Oklahoma St. is/was his favorite team in November of 2013.

Corey, welcome to Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!
