Keith Bhonapha knows what he wants.
“I’m going out to get the best running backs for this program,” UW’s eighth year running backs coach said on April 19. “I do feel like we have gotten some bigger backs over the course of the past couple years. In Texas we’ve been able to get some pretty good guys in Jay’Veon (Sunday) and Caleb Berry.
“I just think that bigger guys help move the chains. The bigger guys are a little bit stouter in pass protection. I do think this: bigger backs wear defenses down in the second half. So if you put those (aspects) together and look at how some of these guys we’ve recruited are going to turn out, you get that bigger guy that’s fast, that’s quick, that can catch the ball, that can hopefully do some of that stuff on Saturdays for the Dawgs.”
Emeka Megwa fits the formula.
