When watching film on running backs from around the state, Moorhead's Otis Weah is one that's got some ability. Weah carried the ball 116 times last fall for 13.3 yards a carry, and a total of 893 rushing yards.
When watching the tape, you see a running back that knows how to setup his blocks well. He's able to hesitate that one extra moment to allow his blocks to seal off the defenders enough, to where Weah can get through the hole and get to the second and third level. He's also a player that once he does get to the second level, he's not being caught very often from behind in a foot race.
I like his balance when getting into small spaces and when defenders get a hand on him, and he knows how to get north / south in a hurry. He runs hard to get extra yards as well. He doesn't display a lot of burst laterally, and needs to gain some weight as well.
