    A player lots of teams know about, but are not ready to offer. Has the size to play at the BCS level, but the speed might be an issue.

    He is off to a good start to his senior season with over 700 yards and 7 TDs in five games.

    So that 4.48 should not be taken at face value?

    I don't think so, but could be wrong. I think he worth a look by our staff though.

    CU needs running backs with good knees, if this young man has that, then look at him...

    if speed is the issue, he might have the frame to play fullback

    We are not going to offer FB's this year, or most years. That is a position that will be filled by walkons and a scholarship will be used every 2nd or 3rd year perhaps.

    Have to wonder what his true speed is. I don't believe the 4.48 but if he can run below a 4.53 then he will be as fast as most FBS RBs. If he is 205 now it is easy to see him being 215. That size with speed in the 4.5s will get a guy a lot of yards.

    With all that I was expecting EB to be in on some RBs with more notable offer list than Wortham has. Another sleeper star?

    I don't think I am that interested but I do like the production out of Texas. I do like the idea of having a bruiser.
