As a sophomore this season, Modise totaled a little over 1,000 yards and one touchdown while also hauling in 12 receptions for 152 yards and three touchdowns, receiving First Team All-Bay 6 and Player of the Year honors for his efforts.
"I was a workhorse but when I worked my way all the way down to the goal line they would go to goal line package," Modise told JCFootball.com recently. "I'm a downhill back that will always make the first guy miss and a running back with a high IQ of the game.
"I can do it all. I'm versatile. That's what type of runner I believe I am."
This past offseason, Modise went to work becoming more explosive and working on the finer points of playing running back.
"I did a lot of beach and hill workouts because I wanted to get stronger as the game goes on," Modise noted. "Another key thing was that I focused a lot on improving my studying skills in regards to film sessions. As I up my level of play, I realize that there are a lot of good players athletically, so I want to differentiate myself by not only being gifted athletically, but being a student of the game as well.
"Discovering different intricacies of the game only allowed my physical workouts to benefit me that much more."
Modise hasn't received a ton of attention on the recruiting trail, but things have been picking up recently.
"I talked to Cal a little bit and I'm on San Diego State's radar," Modise said. "I have also talked to Cal Poly too and a bunch of schools are supposed to start coming by this week and next week so I am hoping more schools start to give me a look."
Modise is set to finish up his academic work in December and he will have three years to play two starting in 2017.
