Projection

Power-5 Starter

Good build with above average height. Will easily play north of 200 pounds in college thanks to long-levered frame and bulking capacity.

Excellent track athlete. Won North Carolina D-I state championships in the 100 meters and 200 meters as a junior in May 2022.

Initial downhill acceleration reflective of that speed. First 10-20 yards are explosive. Displays adequate short-area agility at lower gears. Gains yardage after contact despite upright gait.

Good production as a junior with 900-plus rushing yards on encouraging per-carry rate (8.7). Also showed pass-catching ability in limited opportunities, played significant defensive snaps, and contributed in return game.

Open-field gear generally not reflective of outstanding sprint data (sub-11.00 100, sub-22.00 200). Can squeeze more of that track juice out at the top end. Stiff-hipped at times and gears down to redirect at higher speeds. Testing data across multiple offseasons has been mixed.

Power Five-caliber running back prospect with impressive physical tools and hard-to-beat track profile. May need time to develop, but the long-term ceiling could be particularly high -- that of an impact college player, possible NFL Draft candidate -- if everything comes together.

Athletic Background

Also runs track.
North Carolina Division I state champion as a junior in the 100 meters (10.60) and 200 meters (21.60). Ran state-winning 100-meter time into a headwind (-1.2). Also ran junior times of 10.73, 10.81, 10.87, and 10.89, plus 21.66, 22.02, and 22.36.
As a sophomore, qualified for North Carolina Division I state finals in the 100 (11.02 season-best) and 200 (22.44 season-best). Ran additional Spring 2021 times of 11.05 and 11.09, plus 22.82 (wind-aided) and 23.09.
-----
2021: In 11 games as a junior, ran for 953 yards and 12 TDs on 8.7 ypc. Added 10-161-2 receiving (16.1 avg). Also played defense, logging 23 tackles, three TFL, and two sacks. Averaged 15.2 yards on six kickoff returns.
