Notes:
2005 First Team All-Big East selection...Set school record for rushing touchdowns with 23 as a junior, and led nation with average of 14.4 ppg...Considered a major Heisman candidate as a senior but broke his leg in the opener and missed the rest of the season...Possesses tremendous speed for a player of his enormous size and has more than enough power to push the pile...Ran for 124 yards and three touchdowns in the first half before breaking his leg in the opener against Kentucky...Outstanding balance and agility...Canthrow, run and catch effectively...Never runs out of bounds or tries to avoid contact...Has a nose for the end zone...Needs to keep up on his conditioning, as he gets a bit soft at times...Scored rather poorly on Wonderlic test...An outstanding selection for a team in need of a big back.
