BIOGRAPHY: Part-time starter the past three seasons. Senior-year rushing totals included 182/760/12 with 18/88 as a pass-catcher. Junior-year ground numbers included 174/815/8 after a career-high 189/903/6 as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Hard-running, one-speed ball-carrier who picks up the tough yardage. Runs with good lean, displays solid vision, and quickly finds the hole. Displays straight-ahead running power, bounces off tackles, and keeps his feet moving. Picks up a lot of yardage off initial contact and falls forward when tackled. Can cut back in a small area and adequate catching the ball out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Does not possess the speed or agility to turn the corner. Not an elusive back who creates yardage. Must pick up the intensity as a blocker.
ANALYSIS: Ball is a well-built running back with potential as a situational short-yardage runner at the next level.
