    Garmon vs. Hill Freshman Runningbacks.

    Our 2012-2013 season will undoubtedly feature the likes of a freshman runningback, in fact I would say the odds are that both players will have time on the field. My question here is who will produce the most yards for the hawkeyes this year out of the two Highschool phenoms. Garmon or Hill?
    Let me refresh your memory.

    Greg Garmon- Listed between 6'1'' 200 lbs and 6'2'' 195 lbs (Perhaps a little lighter than listed). From Erie, Pa. He is a 4 star athlete and a cancer survivor who knows perseverance through adversity. He has been reported running a 4.4 40 yard dash. His build looks like one of a receiver on film. - More of a slice and dice, agile sort of runner, but does like to go forward as opposed to lateral and has good hands. Below is a video. The 2 minute 30 second mark is my favorie run

    Barkley Hill- Listed between 6'0'' 200 lbs and 6'0'' 19o lbs from Cedar falls, Iowa. He is between a 2 and 3 star rated athlete. He was chosen as Iowa's Gatorade HS player of the year, and excels in the classroom with a 3.5 gpa Barkley has been reported running in the 4.5's towards the higher end (4.59). Hill is a bit more compact than Garmon, and looks for contact when he finishes. Below is a clip of Hill and another rb, but mainly Hill. It was hard to find videos of him at jr. year or above.

    There you have it. Garmon vs. Hill. Who do you think will contribute most? Who has the most yards, td's etc. Take your picks.

    Re: Garmon vs. Hill Freshman Runningbacks.

    I like Garmon for the most yards. But if we get into the redzone, if we were to put the ball in a freshman rb's hands, I would guess Hill's because he is more compact and physical runner. So I would give the most Td's to Hill. More yards to Garmon, more td's to Hill, if and only if we give it to a freshman on the goal line. Otherwise Garmon for most yards and td's.
