Miami Hurricanes Athlete Deejay Dallas is the whole enchilada. What are you going to get out of him? He can run the ball from the backfield, catch the ball on a fly, take back punts and kicks and do you want him to throw the ball? Done.
Reigning from Brunswick, Georgia, Dallas is going into his second year at The U. Being one of the most versatile players in the country, he is expected to shine this year and have an even bigger impact for this Hurricanes team. Starting in the receiver position last year he then transferred to running back. He also played quarterback in the wildcat along with punt and kick returns.
Playing 12 of the 13 games last year as a freshman, Dallas ran for 217 yards, three touchdowns on 41 carries. He also caught four passes racking up 92 yards.
He is listed at 5’10 220 pounds. He has gained an impressive 25 pounds in the offseason after being 195 in 2017. The sturdy and speedy Dallas is an extremely skilled athlete that can handle multiple roles on the field. He clocks in at 4.45 in his 40 yard dash and is one of the faster guys on the team. He is also already helping out freshman like Cam’Ron Davis and Lorenzo Lingard with their game and ways to improve in certain areas.
Dallas and Jeff Thomas are a lock for punt and kick returns for the Canes this upcoming season. Both speedsters put on a show with their legs last year and look to do go above and beyond this year. This Miami Hurricanes team has a lot of promising signs to be exceed everyones expectations this year.
With the guy who can do it all, Deejay Dallas is a big aspect to this team and their success. If healthy of course the one-two punch of RB1 Travis Homer and Dallas in the backfield can be lethal. Running backs coach Thomas Brown is by far impressed with what Dallas has become. Not only impressive but there is more to come from him with a whole lot of potential.
