The RedHawks ranked 118th in rushing offense last season, relying heavily on the arm of Dysert. Treadwell said the team would like to rely more on the run next season, and incoming freshman Falon Lee is a dark horse to get some carries.
“He is the most versatile and durable running back I have ever coached and I have coached three running backs that have been drafted into the NFL,” Lee’s high school coach Ryan Sulkowski said.
One of the running backs Sulkowski coached is former Clemson star and current Buffalo Bill C.J. Spiller, who was taken ninth overall in the NFL Draft.
Much like last year’s recruiting class, Treadwell says this one will have a chance to compete for playing time.
“Our philosophy is that every freshman class will have an opportunity to compete to see if they are ready,” Treadwell said. “Some are, and some need to be groomed a little bit.”
