Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Deion Smith Colorado Buffaloes

Adequate frame relative to position. Requisite height with lean, athletic build that should hold some more weight in college. Shows encouraging initial burst. Accelerates quickly to reach top speed. Good cutback runner. Displays enough wiggle to make a defender miss at the second level, but at his best hitting holes downhill and slashing cutback lanes. Shows necessary play speed to hit big runs. Should have a lot of tread on the tires after averaging 8.2 carries per game as a junior. Can improve top-end speed as evidenced by track times. Occasionally bounces runs unnecessarily. Limited pass-catching exposure. Power Five-caliber running back prospect who should bring a relatively fresh engine to the next level. Could become reliable multi-year starter in college.

Athletic Background

Two-sport athlete in football and track (100 meters, 200 meters, relays).
