Interesting Tidbit: His Jr. season was virtually eliminated by injuries, first a torn meniscus in the knee in the summer and then a dislocated elbow early in the season.

Primary Recruiting Coach: Marcus Arroyo.

Scouting Report and Projection: Hard to say because of that lost junior season but he is long and athletic and you have to give Cowboys running backs coach Marcus Arroyo credit for jumping on him quickly despite a lack of video to evaluate. He had a senior season that confirmed what he could do in college. He showed he could run and run tough, and he showed that is a lot more potential here and may have just scratched the surface. Helping in the return game is possible and he has good hands. How quickly he sees the field and plays is a huge question. A good guess is some point in his second or third season.
