Anyone had opportunities to watch him? I'm trying to find some games of his to watch but it's proving difficult.

He's had some injury issues(tore his ACL early in his college career and has had nagging injuries since) but I still remember when he tore up UGA's defense in the bowl game in 2010. He was hurt after Week 1 but has come back and been on fire since his return. Possesses more than enough size at HB at 6'3" 220+, appears to have good speed(4.5ish), a lot more elusive than you'd expect a big back to be, runs through arm tackles and has excellent vision. He's a north-south runner that reads his blocks well, uses his size and can make defenders miss in the open field.

Look to have some potential to me but I want to evaluate some games to see his overall skill-set and better get sense for his physicality, leg drive, blocking ability, etc.

Anyone here watch UCF a lot? Or know where there might be some games available?

I always kept an eye on him over his career, he could be a sleeper for a team with a 1 back - ZBS.

jrry/MSURacer,
What do you guys think of his reported height (6'-3")? Does he tend to run upright and take alot more direct hits than say a more compact running back. That would be my biggest concern for a rusher that is definitely on the taller side.

He's a beast.

Tough runner with the size of an H-Back.

Great feet, vision, and hands. More than a ZBS guy. Can create his own yards.

He could be an Alfred Morris/Arian Foster type steal in a ZBS. A guy with relatively limited talent who looks like a superstar because of Shanny's system.

Yea, that's what I saw when I watched him. Very decisive, runs downhill and limits the big hits he takes with his elusiveness. Has good wheels for his size too. It's why I want to see more. Looks like a very intriguing mid to late round pick to me who can contribute in a number of ways.

Guy is going to be a monster in the ZBS could be great value because he isnt a hot commodity, looks like a 4th round pick but someone will get a lot of valuem lots of North/South running

Always kept an eye on him just because of his measurables. He kind of reminds me of Demarco Murray.

He actually went to high school about a half hour away from me.. since he chose a school so far away, no one really follows him. Although im sure he will sign free autographs at a shopping mall as the draft nears if it looks like he will get drafted at all.

I played against him in highschool. In the sectional championship game 2 years in a row and he beat us both times Sad

But ive been following him since he went to UCF and i hope he gets a chance in the nfl because he could suprise some people.

30 minutes away from Onondaga HS, apparently.

Like I said, I'd love to get more film on him. He just seems like a really intriguing player.
