Tony Drake: 2010 Michigan Wolverine Commit

Tony Drake

Height: 5'8"
Weight: 160 lbs.
High School: Dallas Skyline High School (Texas)
High School Coach: Reginald Samples
Position: Running back / Slot receiver
Class: 2010 Recruiting Class (Verbal Commit)

Tony Drake

Overview: He is a smallish, very good athlete with outstanding movement skills. Could play slot receiver or running back, and even help in the return game.

Strengths: Super quick athlete with outstanding feet. Accelerates very well out of his cuts and has that extra gear to run away from defenders. He has nice hands and is fearless in the return game.

Needs Work: Size could be an issue. He appears very small on film. He could use some serious strength training, since he goes down fairly easily. Needs to keep his shoulders parallel and not cross contains face.

Good pickup? Bad pickup? Seems like an average recruit from his video. Of ALL the guys RR and co could have offered early at RB/slot, why pick an unrated guy who played behind a 3-star? Seems like a very odd decision, and I guess we just have to trust that RR and staff know what they're doing...

How would you compare Drake to Gallon? Seem similar, though you note that Drake has a second gear while Gallon does not. Presumably Gallon has better initial acceleration.
