I'm not clear on the options at RB. Can someone give a rundown of our RB situation for next year? The special teams return guys did not impress me so much and I don't like to rely on a freshman or a group of freshman.
Someone else will likely break it down. But we have a ton of experience on our O-line, if we can avoid injuries they should be really good this year. That's half of the running game right there.

Thompkins is probably the most gifted in my opinion, his HS tape was insane. Delton Williams looks like a nice, complement. We just need Maxwell to relax and have some fun out there and we have ourselves an offense.
I think he would be more of a Star. not many safeties come into college at 215-220.
Doubt Williams is ever going to play safety. There's just too much elite talent there and he'll outgrow the position. Once Lewis graduates I would expect something like this at safety:
Long term, i'd expect Cox to start at FS and then probably Powell or Meyers to be SS. Big fan of Kerrick though, would have liked to see him at WR but at S he has a big frame, good ball skills, and he can cover a lot of ground. Also i've heard he loves to hit.
I'm continually impressed with Kerrick. The kid is going to make some big plays in the future regardless of position.
Logjam at WR probably and he did play S in high school too.
In 2011-2013 this is our WR haul
2011 - Sims, Caesar
2012 - Burbridge, Kings, Madaris, Arnett (transfer), Kerrick
2013 - Kilgore, Harris
We also didn't graduate any WRs after 2012. Caesar is now a TE and Kerrick is a S, which evens things out a bit more.
This thread is going nowhere. Back to Williams.

good article link for sure Sean...I wonder if he gets ANY reps at RB in the all star game....hope so, but probably not. Kid is built similar to L.Bell. NO pressure though: really.
2013 Big 33 Game – Pennsylvania vs. Maryland : Defensive Backs Preview
NAJEE GOODE (5’10”, 170 LBS.) – IMHOTEP CHARTER – UNIVERSITY OF MAINE COMMIT
TODD JETER (6’1”, 178 LBS.) – GATEWAY – TEMPLE COMMIT
AARON SWINTON (5’9”, 170 LBS.) – J.P. MCCASKEY – WILLIAM AND MARY COMMIT
DELTON WILLIAMS (6’2”, 225 LBS.) – CATHEDRAL PREP – MICHIGAN STATE COMMIT
TITUS HOWARD (6’3”, 175 LBS.) – CLAIRTON – PITTSBURGH COMMITT
Most Likely To Deliver The Hardest Hit – Delton Williams (PA) and Elvis Dennah (MD)
In a game like this, defensive backs are basically left out on an island. Swinton has shown an ability to close in on wide receivers all week. Williams is as big of a safety as you’ll come across on the high school level. He is very talented and has that swag about him that makes him an elite player. Todd Jeter and Veii both have a nose for the football and will most likely make some big plays on Saturday. Don’t sleep on Najee Goode.
