Jr highlights are impressive. Doesn't look to me like very polished rb, he's getting by on raw athleticism. Scheme is also nearly all outside/power/counter. Very dynamic athlete who has some very evident attributes, power, balance. Acceleration looks off the chart to me. This could be an out of the park homerun.
With his speed this is probably an inside the park home run! :)

Yes, I will talk about his speed. 4.28 in the 40. wow and Boom. This team is built on speed. How many players on the team is 4.5 or less? Maybe another thread on that question? sorry
I believe there was an article recently on just that subject. I'm not sure how many run a sub 4.5, but I believe the article stated that when Dino arrived in 2016, only 4 players on the roster ran a sub 4.6. As of right now, there are 17 running below 4.6.
It is absolutely insane to me how quickly Dino has improved this roster. Our team still lags behind the top of the ACC in depth, but we now field a team with legit ACC speed.
I'm not sure people realize how special Dino is, and how fortunate we were to get him.

Speed is great and the kid has an impressive amount. But if he’s running straight into the line or the arms of a defender, it’s useless.

Look, I’m not trying to take away from the kid, actually I want to celebrate that he’s got everything you might look for in a RB (change of direction, effort, strength, and speed).

To clarify, the NFL combine uses a human start, imperfect and not repeatable, to initiate the recording of the time, thus subtracting a reaction time of the starter from the running performance. When athletes get hand timed (using a stop watch) for both start and finish from a high school or middle school coach, they are benefiting from two moments that are about a tenth of a second off, resulting in about .24 being subtracted to their actual performance. You can see why a high school athlete looking to get recruited from a college experiences a rude awakening when the local performance facility uses electronic timing for both start and finish, with times appearing much slower. It’s likely the athlete had the same running performance, but they were simply timed differently. So many times football players think they are at the level Chris Johnson is, but wind up closer to Tom Brady speed.

I get in the habit of watching other players as well as refs and other sideline players to see if highlights are sped up as some will do... and it's not the case here. This kid, and yeah he's still a kid, simply has freakish turnover and is about 1.5 steps to everyone else's 1.

Glad his coaches aren't pushing him away from track to football only as some do, would be a waste of God given talent and wholly unfair to the rest of the track team to lose a 15 point swing (20 if he does 4 events) each meet.

Yes but even then he is still a high school kid. That kind of speed can't be taught. Other things can be. That's why they run the 40 at combine. It shows off you're natural athletism. It doesn't always transfer over but kid should definitely be rated really high considering his speed.
