    Saw his highlights. Over 10 yards per carry. Works for me. Great patience. Hits the hole quickly. Has good speed. Pretty much a North and South runner.

    Runs through holes with explosiveness and has a long stride which often makes them harder to tackle
    Long strider too, which tend to be harder to tackle from behind.

    Definitely a bit of a project at RB, but at this point worth the risk.

    Certainly seems like a track athlete first and RB second, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Very vertical runner, great north/south speed, agile....has patience and vision which is great to see. Going to be interesting wherever he goes to see how much weight he can put on and keep the speed. If he doesn't wind up here he could end up being a monster at Wiscy.

    I like the potential fit.

    In the type of offense Day wants to run, I really prefer a North/South runner that puts stress on safeties. If the safety takes the wrong angle or misses, the ball is housed.....

    With our potential receiving core and the respect teams will have against the pass, I think you really want a RB who prefers getting North/South quick. A little heavier in the pants would be nice, but I think this kid can run between the tackles. And that speed is legit.....he looks like a legit sub 4.45 guy....

    buchtelgrad04 Pain is an opinion.

    Reminds me of Travis Etienne a little.

    Really fast with a long stride. He doesn’t look to be as strong as Travis at the same stage though.

    Ummm... where was this kid? For me average YPC is a great indicator for HS backs and the way he splits safeties with his speed is very impressive.

    Really want this kid in the class... great fit for our style.

    You know, in the picture up there in the first post he kinda resembles Antonio Pittman. Maybe his game does too....?

    The early feedback from Bradford seems extremely positive for the Buckeyes.

    Some of his bigger ones include Wisconsin, USC, Oklahoma State, Baylor and Nebraska.

    Not sure why but if we can get this kid I think we are OK at the RB position.

    Great offer list. Smooth as butter running the ball. Agree that he would be a great addition.

    What I like is his ability to split the safeties and just hit a different gear.

    What is crazy is the kids in HS. So many times we miss on kids and all the sudden I watch film of our new target and I think "dang (HA, not today recruiting wizards), why weren't we pursing him as well".

    I feel like he's in that gear before he splits the safeties. He starts striding out his sprint at the second level, like a certain SMU back from my childhood.
