Smile Lane's De-commitment Raises Question:

Clemson currently has Ellington (5-10, 180), and McDowell (5-9, 185), and is bringing in Bellamy (5-10, 190) I have heard that Bellamy is on the short end of that 190 by a substantial amount. IMO, Bellamy is more of a scat-back, around-the-edge type of tailback like Ellington and McDowell, and Spiller before them. Not the type of bigger, bruising RB you use for up-the-gut power rushes for needed short gains like Davis was used for, and like Harper was (supposedly) used for. You lose Harper to the draft, and now cut loose Lane, who was projected to be that type of big back.

How will this impact Clemson's offense under Morris? I imagine use Boyd primarily for the 3rd-and short runs up the middle?
