Notes: From Lynwood, WA. Also a track team standout in high school. Played in 13 games, rushing 227 times for 1,302 yards (5.7 avg.), 14 TDs and caught 6 passes for 19 yards in 2015. First true freshman at UW to rush for 1,000 yards in a season. Played in all 14 games, starting 11 at tailback, rushed 237-1,373-10 (5.8 avg.) and caught 19-137-1 in 2016. Played in all 13 games, starting 11, rushed 222-1,380-21 (6.2 avg.) and caught 19-232-3 in 2017. Became UW’s all-time leading rusher in 2108, surpassing Napoleon Kaufman, who had held the record since 1994.

Positives: Outstanding all-purpose production. Instinctive runner who reads blocks very well. Shows both patience and burst. Very quick and explosive into and out of cuts. Compact, extremely agile and maneuvers quickly in tight spaces. Makes defenders miss in the open field. Excellent change of direction. Very good balance and is seldom brought down on first contact. Strong legs and fights for yards. Can turn the corner and break long gains. Effective receiver in the passing game. Good hands. Understands pass protection and shows good technique.

Negatives: Lacks top size, bulk, power and overall frame. Bounces off tacklers more than breaks tackles. Tries to be too creative at times vs. taking what’s there. Size limitations bring into question workload and durability at the pro level.

Summary:Very good rotational, change-of-pace back to pair with more of a bruiser.
