    Insiders rating: ***

    Nice videos - good speed, power, vision, moves, and sets up his blocks well. Not the sheer speed of a MoW, or the moves of a Ringer, but a legit major program RB. Has offers from Maryland (favorite), North Carolina, and West Virginia; has interest in Ohio State and others.

    Slaton is also a track star: 6.98-60m/10.7-100m/22.6-200m/23.5-LJ

    Fairless Hills is located between Philadelphia and Trenton, NJ.

    I don't think tOSU is showing much interest but here is some free info on him. Slaton seems to like Maryland alot.

    He is still claiming tOSU as a favorite and a school he is talking to.

    Committed to West Virginia, as their 3rd RB in this class. Does Jason Gwaltney still have a spot with the Mountaineers?

    The WVU site does list Scooter Berry and Ed Collington as RBs, but Berry is a FB all the way. Nonetheless, Collington and SLaton make two and Gwaltney makes three. Makes one wonder with OSU backing off Collins, doesn't it?

    contrary to previous reports, Slaton is forgoing his senior season and entering into the NFL draft.

    Heard it reported on 1460 the fan at 6:00 pm

    If true, stupid, stupid move. He hasn't shown much this season other than he is injury prone.

    At worst he's a second rounder. Have another bad year next year, and what happens?

    I think he's hedging his bets, and it probably isn't a bad idea with all of the question marks going into his senior campaign.

    it's a little reminiscent of Pittman and Beanie. This Devine kid looks pretty damn good. Does Slaton want to split carries next year?

    Splitting carries would have been a step up in his workload it seems versus this past season. He just seemed to disappear from games.

    I woudn't bet that high. He's undersized and injury prone.

    Exactly, I think best is second round.
