Bounds lines up under center, but he has the versatility and athleticism to help out at a number of positions should he not find the right fit as a quarterback on the college level.
Bounds does a very nice job running the option. He can be a very powerful runner who can run through tackles as well as out run defensive backs in the secondary once he breaks containment.
He is a very physical player who is not afraid to lower his shoulder and deliver a blow on either side of the football.
Bounds ran 4.6 this spring in Tupelo, but he appears to be faster than that on film.
E.J. Bounds is an exciting player to watch. The Water Valley signal caller has his team off to a strong start to the 2012 season. Bounds should expect college recruiters to give him a long look this season as they put together their 2014 prospect lists. See footage of Bounds in action in this FOXSportsNext video presentation.
