Not sure about you guys but I am still worried about out backs. I know we have an upgraded line coach and QB coach, but our backs seemed to really really struggle last year. I am wondering how much Harris not getting in is going to set us back. Anyone got insight as to who is gonna fill the hole in the backfield?
Trey Edmunds has a year under his belt now...
And dont sleep on my boy Mangus! Kids got wheels....
Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
Sure hope we have a guy with some size coming through those holes, seems like our guys right now get knocked down with arm tackles. Any word on if Edmunds is staying at RB, know there was talk of LB too.
Edmunds is the future. Him and JC will tear it up the next 3 years
Size is Edmunds and Wright. Wright is raw but he can run. Decent blocking is required for any back to excel.
Harris still seems to be coming in this summer, so he will still have a chance to break into the starting line up.
If you haven't seen Edmunds run the ball you are in for a treat. The kid is a load and the last i saw he was 6'2 215 -220?
Oh yea i almost forgot, In his Jr. and Sr. year in HS he was one of the fastest kids in the state in the 200 meters. Someone correct me if i'm wrong.

If I remember correctly, someone said Edmunds running style is very comparable to Kevin Jones. That has me excited.
as is Harris, if he ever gets to VT. I hope that he does. I really don't think that our RBs were that bad, but our line was. David Wilson masked a lot of the poor play of the Oline with his superior talents. Jeff Grimes has a lot of work to do, but I feel like he has enough young talent to start building a solid Oline within 2 years, and a really good oline in 3-5.

JMO, Harris's HS film makes him look like more of a down hill runner. KJ was extremely elusive and Harris may be as well, just haven't seen it yet. I expect him to have at minimum, the capability to bruise
Res ipsa loquitur...Let the good times roll
Harris did not have to be very elusive in HS. He would move a hip now and then but he just shook a lot of people off and kept running.
I really believe JC is going to be a huge weapon for us down the road. Once we have the proper back to compliment him (sounds like Edmunds or Harris will fit the bill), he's going to kill it.
