Clemson running backs coach Tony Elliott told me this morning that senior Rod McDowell is the starter heading into the season, but that college football has moved away from one main back and cited Alabama using both Eddie Lacy and T.J.

Note - Tyshon Dye is now at 215 pounds.

Hopefully he runs like JD, not like Jamie Harper

Harper would have been amazing in a Morris offense.***
ATLOrange®
In terms of pass-catching, I agree

Morris would have put him in motion more and gotten him into
