    He is going to have to work twice as hard as Keith.. You cant just go ahead of someone with 4:30 speed and a track star.. I wish them both sucess. But its hard to go to a school that already has two backs from last year and two new backs maybe someone will red shirt this year. That way will have a fresh start next year
