BIOGRAPHY: Two-time All-Conference selection who led Texas on the ground last season posting 258/1619/18 and adding 17 receptions. Sophomore-year totals included 156/831/7 carrying the ball when he started just one game. Track and field sprint champion awarded All-American honors in the 100-meter dash.
POSITIVES: Speedy ball-carrier who can take it the distance when given the slightest bit of open space. Runs with good lean and displays a tremendous burst of speed. Can switch it on with a single step and leave defenders in the dust. Keeps his feet driving up the field, deceptively strong in his lower body, and falls forward when tackled. Possesses the speed and footwork necessary to turn the corner. A patient back who finds the running lanes.
NEGATIVES: Not an elusive ball-carrier who creates yardage. Easily knocked off balance by the first hit. Average pass-catcher out of the backfield.
ANALYSIS: Charles is a tremendous athlete with home run speed, yet he.s a prospect who.s still learning to how to become a complete running back. He offers terrific upside potential and could start at the next level if he ever completes his game.
