Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Kamryn Pettway Minnesota Vikings

Powerfully built running back prospect. Thick through the hips, thighs and calves and broad chest. Extremely productive high school back with a heavy workload. Durable and tough runner. Plays behind his pads and delivers blows at the contact point. Falls forward. Presses the hole effectively and can find cut-back lanes. Isn’t featured as a pass-catcher in high school but has shown plus ball skills and hands in camp settings. Plays with balance. Plodding runner that does not have breakaway speed. Doesn’t demonstrate make-miss-ability. Has the look of a consistent, dependable starter for a Power Five program but athleticism and dynamic ability limits NFL Draft upside.

Athletic Background

Also plays basketball. Competed with Nightrydas Elite on the Nike EYBL circuit as a freshman and sophomore.

2020: USA Today All-USA preseason first-team selection. MaxPreps Preseason All-American.
