Reminds Us Of

Rakeem Boyd Arkansas Razorbacks

Good build for a back with adequate height and enough frame space to get to 200-plus pounds in college. Shows good vision with ability to find creases in tight quarters. Flashes impressive burst and acceleration. North-south hole-puncher with big-play ability. Good top-end speed verified at 4.56 in the 40 and 10.87 in the 100 meters. Runs with good pad level and run-finishing ability. Not afraid of contact. Gears down at times to change direction. Can improve lateral fluidity. Somewhat limited opportunities while sharing backfield with other high-profile recruits, but faces outstanding competition in games and practices. Limited high school workload could ultimately be a long-term positive. Athletic big-play back with high-volume potential at the P5 level.
