Stevan Ridley 2.0
WTF? You sure you didn't mean Earl Campbell?
Palelei looks pretty good, but I'm not excited about him. He'd do great in a spread offense. He'd have a lot of fun, get a lot of attention, and maybe go to the NFL where he'd be a third down back. Les Miles is not going to sit Hilliard and Hill type backs for this guy - nor should he. Every time Bowtie mentions him he gets taller and heavier.
What I saw on the highlights is a fast, shifty, tough little back with good vision. Still, he goes down too easy because he's a shrimp. He also carries the ball in his right hand when he's running left.
If he goes to LSU the upside is five touches per game on offense. More likely he'll get buried like McGee. Now, if he's still growing, all bets are off, because we'd love to have a back like that who was 2" taller and 20 LBs heavier.
