Notes: From Manhattan, KS. Son of UTEP head coach Dana Dimel. Played three seasons at Kansas State, starting all 39 games at fullback. Redshirted in 2014. Rushed 28-86-6 (3.1 avg.) and caught 8-261-2 in 2015. Rushed 30-92-12 (3.1 avg.) and caught 6-66 in 2016. Rushed 19-63-4 (3.3 avg.) and caught 8-91-1 in 2017. Transferred to UTEP as a graduate student in June 2018, pursuing his master’s in leadership studies. Limited to just 5 games due to a shoulder injury, rushed 4 (-3) and caught 9-89 in 2018.

Positives: Versatile. Can line up at fullback, H-back, tight end, out wide or in motion. Effective lead blocker, particularly in the open field. Polished technique as a blocker. Sustains and finishes blocks nicely. Reliable hands. Capable receiver out of the backfield. Effective short-yardage and between-the-tackles runner. Good vision and pick. Above-average run skills for a fullback.

Negatives: Isn't an impact athlete who will wow you with speed or elusiveness. Has limitations as a running threat.

Summary: Can be a bit more than just a plowhorse lead blocker type, he can block, catch and run.
