Scout.com Evaluation
: One of Arizona's top returning RBs. Versatile back that has size to run between tackles and speed to get to the edge. Solid hands out of the backfield and a willng blocker. Does not dance, makes a cut and hits the hole. Has some shiftiness but at the same time is a physical back that will finish his runs. Mid-major to 1AA prospect at RB but is getting BCS looks as a CB.
