    Backup RB for the Texas state champs who had 21 TDs and over 1400 yards rushing as a junior. About to blow up with offers.

    I'm already overwhelmed with all the talented corners we are in on, why not make it so for RBs as well :)

    Love this guy's film. Clearly a very talented guy who should have already had a ton of offers. Crafty and slippery, no one is able to get a good shot on him.

    Yeah. No one seems to get a good shot at him. Vision, works the angles, plus really good balance and core strength makes him hard to tackle.

    Hope he changes his name to "Fonteyes"

    Edit: That doesn't work. Looks like "Font Eyes" instead of "Fonte Yes." Oh well. It was a noble effort.

    I like him.
    Not sure if he's a starter or program flag bearer, but he definitely is underrated, IMO.

    He hits holes really well and doens't wow me with speed, but he's CONSISTENT with his speed and angles.
    I see him blossoming in college once he gets stronger and faster.

    Could be a nice get!

    Back up or not, I don't understand how this kid only has 3 P5 offers with 21 TDs and 1,400 yards at a good 5a Texas program.

    In terms of his talent or as it pertains to the Buffs' chances??

    Both. If Fontenot didn't have to split carries as a junior, he would have put up ridiculous numbers.

    He split reps with an absolute stud, too, in Darius Anderson (TCU). Glad CU is in on him early, before he blows up this season.

    One of my edits finally made it on a commit! Hopefully that makes up for me being wrong on who the next commit was :coffee:. Think we got a steal here.

    Don't know how you couldn't like a 1400yd, 21TD RB. As a second string no less. Welcome aboard Alex!

    Not the fastest kid, but great vision, balance and break tackle. Major steal for the Buffs.

    Already have a true burner on the team in Carr.
    Love adding bigger, tough to tackle backs. If he can keep his 4.6 time and add 10-15 he will do just fine at this level.
