Come on down! You're the next contestant on "Meet the 2010 Georgia Tech Football Signees". Deon hails from Central High in Phenix City, Alabama, the same school that sent us Cord Howard & sophomore A-back Orwin Smith. At 6'0" and 195 pounds, Smith will play A-back at Tech.
Hash's Take: good vision & excellent acceleration through the hole. Will break arm tackles. Represents the coaching staff's desire to get bigger at A-back as he'll probably play around 210-15 pounds. Excellent cut back ability. Not particularly shifty; would prefer to run through tacklers. Smart player who plays through the whistle.
Player he reminds us of: Miami's Javarris James in running style & stature.
