I think this is the big back a number of posters have been looking for.

Looking at his footwork, he doesn't run like a "big" back. But most importantly he can catch th ball. I can see why CCL has him high on his board, perfect for Chip' O game plan

He reminds me of Yeldon with a little less balance. Nice size/speed combination.

The Yeldon comparison, as well as him being from bammerham makes me think he's bama bound unless there is strong evidence otherwise. 

I have no info on this situation. All I know is that he looks ideal for their O, he's deep in bama territory, and little nicky gets who he wants. 

I would like to be wrong, but.....

He doesn't have a Bama offer atm.

Any chance we can go ahead and lock this guy down? Or is he looking to enjoy the recruiting process?

Not in a hurry to commit.

he reminds me more of a Danley/Joseph size and style of runner from years past. Don't see many of those at RB anymore...

Kind of reminds me of a Eddie George. Now if he comes here and wins a Heisman I have no complaints. A lot of people harped that Eddie George was to big/tall to be a running back. Not a all world career, but not a bad one either.

I like this kid a lot and hope he grows into the 6'3 frame similar to another RB who just won the heisman a year ago...

any possibility that Joiner plays TE in college?  I know he is a tad short, but could be a heck of a threat in that position. Hands, speed, elusive (geez his film shows that)....   Look at what he did at 0:59 into the film.  I think he could get deep into the secondary 2-3 times a game with some short TE routes. Kinda cradles the ball as he catches it, but that can be changed.

Reminds me of Mark Barron's highlight reel... maybe not quite as physical.  Safety or OLB?

 

Also, if Kerryon's running style was a little more blunt and to the point he might look like this.

We are recruiting him at RB. The next possibility is a big WR similar to Duke's size while at AU.

I actually wondered about this in another thread. He certainly looks the part.

Kerryon is running against SEC defenses. I suggest a re-watch of his high school film for a more apples-to-apples comparison.

@ellitor and @bigbird

I see that he plays at Mountain Brook.  What can you tell me about the level of competition he goes up against?

From the OP...

It's the same region as national power Hoover. Also 3 of the 4 teams in the region that make the playoffs each year often make to the round of 8 and in some cases all 4 teams make the round of 8 in the playoffs.

Very agile and rotate his hips really well. Super smooth like. Definitely has room to get bigger in college. Would like to see him lower the boom a little more for his frame.

I really hope we can get this guy. His running style with those big long strides reminds me of Stephen Davis. He doesn't have break away speed. It's disappointing to see him get run down from behind a few times... Against highschool competition... But he has a natural running style and catches the ball apparently extremely well. 

I truly hope we make this kid priority 1

^^^^^^I read a headline that he ran a 4.34 forty at a camp IIRC. 

those are always hand held times and the margin of error is high.
