Scouting Report

One word: Versatility. Another word: Athleticism. Potts has both in spades. It’s not difficult to see why offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca would be excited to add an athlete like Potts to his arsenal. He can play running back or wide receiver and thrives in space. Line him up in the backfield, put him at slot receiver, throw a bubble screen, call for a jet sweep, etc. If you want to get creative, Potts is the kind of the player who allows you to open up the playbook. As a sophomore, he rushed for over 2,000 yards and scored 37 touchdowns. Not bad, right? Potts did miss his junior season after tearing his ACL, so it will be important that he has a strong (and healthy) senior season this fall before heading to Minnesota.
