Scout.com rating: two-star
Projected position at WFU: Running back
Commit date: 6/14/10
Recruiting competition: Duke, Colorado, Western Kentucky
Strengths and improvements: What he lacks in height he'll bring in speed and suddenness. Displays great footwork.
"My whole game is that I run. I definitely hope to be a team player, and use my speed to help out as much as I can, wherever I'm needed."
Why WFU: "I love the way the weight room program is run, and how that turf field looks; especially when there was snow on it- it was beautiful.
"Everybody is like a family. It doesn't matter where they're from; there are people from Texas and Florida, getting along like they knew each other their whole lives.
"The coaches interact with us. They don't just talk to us like we're players; they talk to us like we're a part of their family, and they want to help us. It's a real environment.
"Coach Barclay and I are about the same size. He's the leading rusher in school history, and let me know anything's possible. It doesn't matter how big you are, just how much you want it.
"I'm ready to roll. I can't wait to get to Wake and show off. They got me sold 100-percent."
Coach Quotes (Coach Bonner): "I just want to say, aside from football, he's just a great person. And that's kind of key to me. He's a great kid who does his academics and, oh by the way, he plays football.
"If I had to pick a kid, I would let my daughter go out with Orville; that's how I feel about him.
"He came here as a sophomore and a little timid, but we recognized his ability right away. He's a hard worker, and is willing to do whatever it takes to be the best that he can be. That's an attribute I really like. He's committed to the team, and not just himself.
"First off, his ability will show right away. But his personality will have people just go towards him, gravitate to him. Once that happens, his ability will even shine more.
"You see his playing ability, his resourcefulness, and ability to go in there and succeed. He wants to get everybody else to be a player, and wants everybody to succeed; not just himself.
"I know he's excited about being there, and a little nervous. He may not talk much, but he's a worker."
