The article says he runs a 4.4 second 40 yard dash. Highly unlikely, but he does look fast enough on film.

Like you, I find it hard to believe a 6 foot, 200 pound running back who runs a 4.4 is a preferred walk-on at NIU. Something doesn't add up.

Here is another great article on him from last season. You're right, something doesn't add up. I'm going to do some more digging
