From the original commitment article:

Watching his film reveals a sturdy ball-carrier who attacks the hole, has the ability to make sudden cutbacks and appears to play in an offensive scheme comparable to the one Missouri runs. Included in his highlights are even some examples of him as a lead blocker on quarterback runs as well as in pass protection.

Mizzou currently returns only three scholarship running backs: Damarea Crockett, Ish Witter, and Nate Strong. All three have proven themselves to some degree, but there could be playing time available in a No. 4/special teams role.
