Ben Fong-Torres of Rolling Stone F*ing Magazine? Maybe a little out of his depth, but I'll take it!

Mars probably, since it only has about 38% of the gravity the Earth does.    But yeah I agree for an Earthling that’s pretty good. 

Cool your jets there fella. Frost hasn't had two 1,000 yard rushers in the last 5 years he has been HC/OC. Not sure why that would change. 

My thoughts:

 

More impressed with his film than I expected to be based on his ratings

Was a 10.8 100 meter guy as a freshman.  Doesn't appear blindingly fast on film but that's pretty good for a guy now pushing 200 pounds

Tougher runner than I expected for a guy that fast

Would like to see more elusiveness - not a dynamic cutter.  But also missed his sophomore season with a broken ankle so perhaps between that and being a speed guy he hasn't had to develop his cutting ability that much.

I watched the first play of his Junior highlights and stopped. Grayson sprinted pass a guy that was in a full gallup about 2 yards ahead of him with a good angle. All the evidence for speed you need right there.

First, forming an opinion based on one example is a bad plan, anywhere in life.

 

Second, I'm not sure I'd classify that as "sprinted pass [sic] a guy".  He out-ran him by roughly 4 yards over 50.  He was faster, but not drastically faster.

 

Third, it depends on how good/fast that other player was.  If he was a five-star guy, I'm sold.  If he's a run-of-the-mill high schooler, that's not saying much.

Staff did ask Bell to try and outrun guys rather than cut them up so maybe they aren't as concerned about it in this system as others may be.

I agree with all of your points. I was being hyperbolic to make the point that he looks fast on film. That first play was pretty sweet though.

The guy has excellent speed.   Watch the highlight films.   He takes plenty of plays from deep in the backfield to the races within about 15 yards past line of scrimmage.  Best attribute is his quick, decisive cuts and no stutter stepping and dancing around.  He cuts enough and runs by people and cuts both directions.   He is a dam fine RB and will compete to play as a freshman I suspect.  There are couple more on the board out there that we need to pursue with all deliberate speed as well.   But he's as good as any we have on the team right now I'd say.
