Prediction & How He Improves Cougars in 2013: 

Although I don’t see Jamal improving the Cougs immediately in the RB department in 2013 as far as the ground game goes, I see him falling into the role Rickey Galvin was supposed to fill last year and that would be a huge addition in the flats.

As we all remember whenever we threw to the flats last year it got blown up and never worked. If we get Jamal out there you can believe these plays will transform from a loss of 0-2 yards into a gain of 4 or 5 yards every time.  Also this kid has big play ability, he averaged 9.96 rushing yards per down his senior year and many believe he can play wide receiver or even corner back in college so that is why I think he will be beneficial to the Cougs’ flats game.

The Cougars will once again have a deep running back rotation in 2013 so I see Jamal playing a role in that as well, he obviously can play to position so I see him impacting that as well.  The great thing about Jamal is his body type and style fits into our offensive scheme possibly better than anyone we currently have back there so watch out, big things to come from Mr. Morrow!
