Good quickness, agility, and balance for position. Classic downhill runner. Gets yards after initial contact. Hits zone stretch play hard and fast. Can make the long breakaway runs. Sudden initial quickness out of backfield. Lines up 8 yards deep. Runs like he’s his own blocker. Gets stronger the more he carries the ball. Peripheral vision and cutback ability. Punishes tacklers. Can’t be arm tackled. Has the ability to make big plays every time he touches the ball. Catches the ball in his hands on screens and flat routes. Doesn’t go down easily. Lateral moves and quickness as needed. Well built, muscular and solid. Injury history. Somewhat of a leggy runner. Runs high. Can improve his blocking skills on pass protection and blitz pickup. First Oklahoma running back to rush for over 3000 yards in his first two years. Over 4000 yards for his three year career. Point of contact he gets his pad level. Workhorse type back. Has had injuries, but he carries the ball more than most backs (747 carries in career.) Good awareness and ability to make the defenders miss. Game breaker. Open field runner.
