Let’s welcome RB K’wan Powell to the Bulls! (USF Profile)

RB K’wan Powell (Vernon High School)

Committed to the Bulls since September 1st, Powell represents the running back position in the 2021 class as the only commit at the position. Ranked as the 54th best RB in the country, Powell has received offers from programs such as LSU, Washington State, South Carolina, Mississippi State, and Florida State to name a few.

Run the Tape:

Hit the hole and go type back that utilizes quickness and/or straight-line burst to get past the second level of a defense. Great patience and vision at the position. Runs with good pad level. Lower body strength/contact balance makes Powell a difficult back to bring down in open space. Because of this, Powell projects as a solid yards after contact RB at the next level. More than comfortable running inside or outside. Decision-making is sound, will bounce runs outside when necessary, but has no problem waiting for the play to develop inside. Has three-down potential at the position as a receiver out of the backfield.

Mike’s Take:

With a stable of running backs already on the team, Powell becomes another quality addition to a backfield that is DEEP with talent moving forward. What I like about Powell is his vision and balance at the position, being a guy that finds the hole quickly and racks up yards after contact, a trait that will serve this backfield well depending on how the staff utilizes this position moving forward. Bulls fans should be excited to see Powell hit the field in the near future as a three-down back for this USF offense.
