2011 Prospect Profile: RB Shaquan Coles

Shaquan Coles –RB - 5'11" 170
Staten Island, NY – Curtis HS
4.45 40
Offers: None
Interests: South Florida, Boston College, Miami, Duke, Rutgers, Syracuse, Michigan, Stanford and Penn State

Prep: (FR) Did not play or no stats reported. (SO) Did not play or no stats reported. (JR) 206 carries for 1798 yards and 24 touchdowns and 1 kickoff return touchdown.

Analysis: Shaquan is a running back that is flying underneath the radar. What he lacks in size he makes up for with vision, balance and elusiveness. He lacks top-end speed but hits the hole hard and will use his vision to allow him to find creases to gain additional yardage. Shaquan isn’t the type of running back that is easy to take down on initial contact. Defenders aren’t going to tackle him with one-arm tackles. His size and style of running allows him to have good balance. Shaquan is going to need to add additional weight to become a more powerful type of running back at the college level. With some strong showings at combines and a superb senior season Shaquan wont be flying underneath the radar for too much longer.
