Notes: "productive running back prospect and overall athlete" ... "Not a burner" ... "quicker than fast" ... "More of a one-cut-and-go runner" ... "gears down when cutting into the open field" ... "lacks great top-speed" ... "consistent, decisive runner"

Quotables: "I really like the plays they run. I'd be a good fit in the offense. I'm trying to get on the field early and get some playing time. That's my goal."

"UVA wants me to play running back. But I like playing both sides so where schools were recruiting me to play really didn't phase me. Some schools really didn't care which side I played"

"They (the UVA coaches) were very excited. I could tell that. I always wanted to go somewhere where I'm wanted. They mentioned I could play early. They like me because I'm explosive."

"I'm better, I'm faster, bigger and stronger."
