How good is John White IV?

Going into 2012 that is all I can really wonder? He is consistently being forgotten by top sports sources across the nation... from ESPN to Bleacher Report... many people either want to give him a sentence or two or totally fail to acknowledge his existence...

Last year was amongst the most impressive seasons I have seen in any sport at any level... John White as we all know carried the Utes to 8 victories (along with a stout D)... he CARRIED us.

The kid made mince meat of our record books when the defenses knew he was coming...

Guys like the Dirty Bird Jamal Anderson came outta the U and flapped his wings to the super bowl and over 1800 yards in a single season... Mike Anderson came outta the U and plowed his way for 1500 yards and 15 tds as a rookie (granted TomaHawkReds grandma coulda gone for 1000 with that Broncos offense...)

my point is Utah has a solid history of running backs... and comin outta Juco the wolfman devours all records in his path... with little help.

This year we are down 1.5 NFL tackles ... but Stevens and Brenner should be studs with some incoming JUCO tackles to attempt to fill Tony and John's shoes...

I anticipate John White IV to grab the attention of the nation... whether it is slicing up USC that does it or a consistent 125-150 yards a game... our backfield is deep... which will truly benefit the wolfman... as he will be fresh for 4 quarters... Jordan Wynn and our depth at WR will assist JW IV as well.

I can see him breaking off 6-8 yards per carry and while many people do not believe he has much of an NFL future... I see his running style to be similar to Sproles... He CANNOT do all the things Sproles can do i.e. change the game with his receiving skill set... but they run the same way... hard... quick... and shifty as can be.

I have faith in the Wolfman leading us to pastures of Roses...
