Class: RS Sophomore Ht/Wt: 5-11/190 Position: Running Back Hometown: Downers Grove, Illinois
Louisville’s Take: (No Notes Provided)
Thoughts: Only hard-core fans would be able to pick McGriff-Culver out in a crowd, but this is a guy who saw action in all 13 games last year. Albeit, most of that time was on Special Teams, but he was a consistent force on the punt team almost always being one of the first two or three guys to the ball. While 5-11 and 190 may not be drastically small for a RB, on this team it is. Other than S. Perry, McGriff-Culver is lacking 15-30lbs from the other boys. While it appears Perry will be the "lighting" to Brown and Wright’s "thunder", Jarel will still see the field on the offensive side of the ball. Jarel had 30 all-purpose yards last year off three receptions. While it’s a little crowded in the backfield now when it comes to PT, I expect Jarel to still catch a few passes in the flats when he need him and remain a constant force on Special Teams.
Potential Nicknames: "Crime Dog" (Any Fred McGriff fans?), "JMC", Jarel "up in yo McGrill-Culver"
