Wow, didn't think that this thread was still going...Rodriguez used smaller backs than McGuffie at WVU (Slaton and Devine), but he should be a good fit in his system if he has good hands in the receiving game.

On a related note, does anyone have McGuffie's stats for this season? I can't seem to find them.

McGuffie is an amazing fit for this offense, I fully expect him to be in A2 this year.

205-1,711 8.35 ypc 24 TDs

From the Houston Chronicle.


And I'm with you on the size issues, Terriers. He's not a small back by any stretch of the imagination. Last I heard, he's bulked up into the 190 range with room to grow. 5'11" 190 with the frame to add more is great size for a prospect.

Meh.. If he can't move to QB, then he might as well just become a Kicker or Punter.

Maybe a corner, but he's white so he's probably too slow.

I'm from the Cypress area and have seen Mcguffie play alot. Mcguffie looks like a white Reggie Bush. He has tremendous speed and can break tackles.

He looked like he put on about 20+ lbs. from his Jr. season to his Sr. season. When watching him, I thought he might have lost his 5th gear by putting on all the weight, but he had a really good playoff game late in the year running for around 275 yds. He's fine and will fit in really good in Michigan's offense.

Aye, he's quite good. It looks like he has some excellent vision based off watching a bunch of highlight tapes of McGuffie. The main thing he's going to need to learn at the next level is to not out run his blockers. It looked like a few times he opted to just out run his blockers, and while that's fine for high school football - more often than not that won't cut it in college.

If he has good hands, I see him being a great option at RB for the Wolverines.

Texas, I'd definitely agree about the weight, I heard he was up to like 205 right now, but in terms of the speed, I'm pretty sure he had a sprained ankle basically all year and is only now basically fully healthy, so that is probably why he looked slower until the last game.

Rodriquez is going to have fun with him. If he can somehow get Pyror to commit, Michigan's running game will have the potential to be better than what RR had at WV with Slaton and White.

You know I hate to be the devil's advocate here but I personally think that McGuffie is WAY to overrated. He is praised by so many to be the best thing since sliced bread, it seems to me that he has a running style like that of Adrian Peterson's, that is an upright one, and this type of running style is not very conducive to a long and efficient career. In fact that running style leads to injuries.

From what I have seen of him it also seems that if he doesn't nail that home run hit than he's going to be dropped in the backfield or met at the line as he seems to try and bounce every run to the outside or juke everyone out. This isn't to say that he can't lower his shoulder, but it seems that he tries to always bust the big one.

However these are just my opinions, just like ya'll have yours.

he's really not that overrated considering rivals has him as the tenth (TENTH?!) best all purpose back and not even in the top 100 or so players. Theres people who are worse than him in literally every aspect who are ranked ahead of him so I'm not sure how he can be overrated. Also, even on this bored, so many people seem to think he is overrated that he is probably underrated here. I don't see how he doesn't become at least as good as Slaton was at WVU while he is at Michigan.

My guess is he committed to go there in the first place because LLoyd Carr and Ryan Mallett were going to be there, now they're gone along with most likely your top 2 WRs. Maybe that option offense they run will be good for him but i think they are going to struggle there.

After seeing him play in the under armour game, and watching some old highlights he is a perfect fit for Rodriguez system, he is freakishly athletic and I cant wait to see how he will be used...

If i were Pryor I would be looking at guys like him going to Michigan and that would make my decision a little easier...That shuttle time is incredibly fast, and he looks it on the field, he has some amazing acceleration and quickness
