Yea, not sure what they're waiting on. I know size is a concern, but even if he doesn't end up playing RB, he'll play somewhere and make a big difference.

I’m really kind of torn on this. He’s clearly an electric athlete, but his size is an issue. I’ve heard that he’s listed bigger than he really is and that he’s only 5’-5” & 150 lbs. That’s why Kansas is the only P5 school to offer him.

The question is probably whether or not he has the potential to add 20-30 lbs of muscle to his frame. I hope he ends up here because you can never have too many explosive playmakers on offense.

I don’t if he’s 3 ft tall the guy is a helluva player and a difference maker. He made the so called normal size guys look a bunch of little kids on Thursday night!

He’s listed at 5’-5” & 168 lbs. He’ll probably end up being 175 to 180 lbs. A P5 running back can get away with being short, but they have to have the lower body strength to play the position.

This is exactly the type of athlete K-State brings in. They always seem to have a Sproles on their roster. To utilize an under-sized kid like this, we’d need more creativity on offense. Hope we offer him and let Glass do some work to bulk him up.

A lot of recruiting experts say that the best scat back from Oklahoma this year may be Qwontrel Walker from Stillwater. I think one of them winds up at OSU

I thought of Tyler Lockett; too bad that guy was too small for P5 college or NFL :whistle:

Qwontrel Walker listed at 4.69 forty. MW dictionary definition: scatback
: an offensive back in football who is an especially fast and elusive ball carrier. Does his forty time fit the definition?

I'm not sure 40 times are the marker for a scatback. Maybe shuttle time?

As for the definition:
"Elusive" is a good term, but maybe not "fast". I view "fast" as straight line 40 speed.
I think quickness is a better term to use for scatback (stop and go).

Wiktionary has: A small lightweight running back valued for speed rather than power.

I think your concerns are real, but we almost always have scholarship spots left at the end of a class. If we don’t offer this guy and soon it just feels like some bad karma that’s gonna lead to an annoying background story as he leads KU to their first win over us in XX years (how long has it been now?)

Honestly, it also depends on when the camp was. He’s only a junior now, and this summer’s camps were all messed up from Covid, so if that time was after his freshman year then you can assume he’ll be getting faster from 15 to 18.

He is bigger that 5-5. Maybe about 5-7. The kid #28 is 5-5.
Moves, Build and speed is more important here.

The camp was 3/17/2019. It is listed on his 247 site. I agree his times will get better as he matures since he was probably 16 when he camped.
