    Running back Shaquille Powell is drawing early comparisons to Oklahoma running back DeMarco Murray, who came out of Bishop Gorman in the Class of 2006. Powell started last season and rushed for 1,555 yards, 29 touchdowns and averaged 11.5 yards per carry.

    "I just want to keep working hard," Powell said. "I want to keep it going."

    Great article on Powell's impressive camp performances: Las Vegas Sun link

    Here's a teaser on the article:

    ******************

    Word is that Powell has interest in Colorado and is hoping we offer.

    Liking the quick twitch athlete. He would be great as a nickel back with those quick bursts coming off the edge in blitzes or covering the slot. I also like as a PR/KR player or maybe a slot WR/RB like Dexter McCluster was in college.

    Bishop Gorman is EXACTLY where we want to be if we start hitting Las Vegas recruiting hard. They are traditionally a great program.

    That's going to be a great game. We were in on the tackle from Servite before he committed to Boise State. Never say never.

    Watching this kids highlights, he reminds me a lot of Knowshon Moreno. A little bit shorter but same body type and running style.

    Hopefully not as injury prone.

    I think as he moves higher up, that upright running style and 4.6 speed will be the death of his knees, same thing with Slowshon Moreno. That being said, I think kids can get away with it on the college level.

    Committed to the Blue Devils. Pretty good player imo, but I'd say rivals is overrating him a bit with the 4* ranking.

    Dude had a monster senior year. 2450 yards, 12.5 per carry, 35 TDs.

    Can't fault someone for wanting to get a degree from Duke, but Wallace Wade makes Stanford look like a diehard atmosphere.
