R.J. Shelton profile

Week One Stats: 16 carries, 238 yards, four touchdowns; one PR for TD.

Shelton showed the speed and elusiveness that we think will make him a great change of pace and third down type back early in his Spartan career. He can change directions and cut on a dime, and is one of those guys who just has a knack for making people miss in the open field. We haven't seen a ton from him as a power runner, but he was able to have some success between the tackles. He'll have to do more of that to be an every down back at the next level, but at the very least, the Spartans will be getting a guy who can make something out of nothing and produce some big plays.
