BIO: First-team All-Conference selection as a senior after finishing second in the league in rushing totaling 142-735-6 on the ground and catching six passes for 28 yards.

POSITIVES: Smallish scat-back who eludes defenders when the ball is in his hands. Runs with forward lean, quick through the hole and immediately gets to top speed. Stays low to the ground, keeps his feet moving forwards and weaves through the traffic. Displays vision, follows blocks and gets lost behind the lineman. Cuts back on the dime without losing momentum, avoids defenders and displays terrific footwork. Aggressive and puts his shoulders down into the opponent.

NEGATIVES: Small and devoid of any running strength; slow adjusting off the first hit, easily knocked off balance and stopped dead in his tracks. Marginally used as a receiver out of the backfield.

ANALYSIS: Outside opportunity as a third down back if he proves to be a reliable pass catcher next summer.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
