POSITION RANKING: NR
COMMITTED TO SMU OVER:Houston SIDE NOTE: West has been playing football since he was 3 years old and he’s also ranked in the nation in Madden in the low 300s he said.
AUDIBLE: “I love the SMU staff. They’re great guys, they care about you, they’re going to show you they really do want you.”
How West fits
West is the exact type of big play back SMU needed to pick up. Xavier Jones and West will compliment each other well.
What West brings
Playmaking Ability. West is so patient when reading his blocks and understands how to make defenders take terrible angles and look foolish. West has the ability to break one whenever he wants. If he gets into the open field, look out.
What to Expect Freshman Year
Expect West to earn some playing time because of how well he fits into the offense. Ultimately, it’s up to him to learn the playbook, but West has all the tools necessary to make himself available to the staff for some playing time.
Career Expectations for West
West needs to put on some weight to withstand the beating of a season, but if he can do that and keep his speed, West could be a very good option out of the backfield, in the screen game and on counters because of his speed. I’m excited about both West and Jones because of their potential that I see them taking advantage of in Morris’ offense.
