Levy is just an absolute load to bring down but you wouldn’t think so from looking at his 5’10″ 187 lbs body. He has a thickly built frame that makes him difficult to tackle on contact. Not only that but Levy continuously churns his feet when he meets the first defender and maintains solid balance as to not go down easily. In that sense he reminds of a taller, leaner version of Ray Rice. The current Baltimore Ravens tailback is like a wrecking ball when he motors across the line of scrimmage and has a low center of gravity which makes him tough to tackle. It’s impressive to watch from both players but I think the attribute that gets me so excited about Levy is his vision. In Cincinnati’s zone scheme the runningback many times will have a second or two to evaluate the holes in the offensive line after the snap of the football and before he actually receives it. He must have solid vision as to find those openings and the speed to exploit them when the ball is finally in his hands. Levy possesses both and those, in addition to his tackle-shedding abilities, make him a talented ball carrier.
There’s good reason to think that Jameel Poteat will be the front runner to start for the Bearcats in 2013. But guys like Tion Green and Deionte Buckley could easily take that #1 runningback role. Competition breeds excellence. This and the uncertainty surrounding this position in the future is likely why UC’s staff has loaded up on runningbacks in the past couple of recruiting cycles. For Levy he will probably take a redshirt his freshman year unless he comes in and ‘Wows’ the coaching staff from day one.
