Bio: Part-time tailback that shared the starting duties in the past. Carried the ball 106 times for 602 yards and 4 scores as a senior also catching 23 passes for 197 yards and 1 score. Junior totals were 98/438/3 on the ground and 26/262/1 as a pass catcher.

Pos: Versatile ball handler best as a third down back. Quick footed with a good burst of speed, squirms through the small openings in the defense and keeps his feet moving up the field. Plays faster than his forty time, gets outside around the corner and beats defenders to the flanks. Plays with forward lean and looks natural catching the ball out of the backfield.

Neg: Running lacks strength, explosion and though fast in a small area, he cannot run to daylight.

Analysis: Situational ball carrier who would benefit by adding return duties to his arsenal.
