    He's actually a little taller than Smith and looks like he has a frame that could add some good weight. I wouldn't think getting up to 200 would be any issue over the next year or two
    Pretty sure he plays hoops....those guys usually bulk up once they become football specific

    Saw one site that had him listed in the 190s. Very explosive with amazing cutting ability. Not sure about his power running.

    Ok. I thought I had seen 174 or somewhere right around there.

    Marshall Faulk played at 155 as a freshman and did quite well. He ended up at around 200. Many of these hs kids aren’t even close to done growing and some max out at 16 years old. Never know what the future holds

    Total guess, but I bet he probably got up into the higher weight range for football and then drops down during hoops, which coincides with some of the camps where they are measured.

    His father didn't have exceptional size or blazing speed. We all know how that turned out.

    Kid would have been a great linebacker.

    Hate to see a kid's career wasted playing out of position like he was.

    I think he showed at the end of last season that he's a pretty great RB too ... when he wants to be.

    There was little question how good Emmitt was going to be after what he accomplished at Escambia. EJ's production isn't terribly impressive. You have to watch his clips to be impressed with him. I'm guessing there are some other offensive weapons on that team.
