    Great balance, great body lean, gets up to speed immediately, doesn't dance, catches the ball... pretty much everything I hope for out of a RB. He's on the short side, but that can be to a RB's advantage... especially when a guy can get from 0 to 60 so fast while hiding behind his OL looking for his lane.

    Right to the top of my wish list (and my fear list in the event he signs with a conference rival).

    I have a hard time believing this is accurate.

    Either way, very exciting, tough runner. Would love to see him in B&G.

    It isn't, but he does have excellent speed based off of those highlights.

    If the 4.3 is legit, he would be a huge get. As others have noted, true 4.3 guys are a rare commodity. I played on a FB team with a true 4.3 guy and it was unbelievable. I also knew another guy who was a true 4.3. Two people out of all the people I have met in 40+ years. Not real common. At every level but the pros, and even sometimes in the pros, that kind of speed is an immediate game changer.

    Absolutely. Some players think they have an angle on him and he erases it pretty quick. He seems like a solid player that will probably get passed up on due to his size. Could benefit us.
