Mickey Plyler on Choice: "This is the highest rated of the incoming running backs. Choice looks the part. He played quarterback in high school and will have an adjustment to make to running back but this is a great looking four-star prospect. He has power and speed. Freshmen running backs have to learn a lot in pass protection, but if he can, I can see Choice avoiding a red-shirt."
