Adding immediate depth at running back is Kristoffer Olugbode from the City College of San Francisco, who signed a letter of intent with coach Paul Petrino’s Idaho Vandals Wednesday.

“He’s a guy you can give the ball to as many times a game as you want,” said Petrino of Olugbode (5-9, 200), who had 270 carries as a sophomore. “He’s a great kid, a great student and comes from a great family.

“He will bring some leadership.”

Olugbode comes to Idaho after a stellar sophomore season at City College of San Francisco. In 2012, he carried the ball 270 times for 1,699 yards. He scored 19 touchdowns, while averaging 141.6 yards per game and 6.3 yards per carry. He rushed for at least 100 yards in nine of 12 games and twice eclipsed the 200-yard mark. His career high was 310 yards on 32 carries against Santa Rosa. He scored five touchdowns in a 31-carry, 216-yard outing against American River. Thirty-two carries is a career high and he twice had 31. His long run was 55 yards. He also had 16 receptions for 149 yards with a long of 98.

Olugbode is a 2010 graduate of Bellarmine Prep at San Jose, Calif.
