At 5'11", 225 pounds, Fullerton RB Kelvin York definitely fits the role of 'Big Back' and as a…
Moving the chains is York's specialty
"After spending a semester there, I knew I wanted to try and play at the highest level I could," York told JCFootball.com. "I just didn't feel like it was the place for me, so I started looking around and I felt like coming out to California, to play the best JC ball out there, was the best situation for me and because I loved USC and figured that playing in Southern California would give me a better shot at playing there.
"I came out and so far things have worked out and now I just have to build on things and show people I can get it done no matter what obstacles I have in front of me."
Stacked fronts are one obstacle that York will need to contend with after posting over 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns for the Hornets last season using his size, quickness and outstanding vision to keep the chains moving.
"My job is to make it easier on my offense," York said. "I like running in-between the tackles and making plays, taking it the distance.
"I love taking the will of the defense and just pounding them. After you do that enough, you start getting big plays and then it really starts to roll."
So far, recruiting is just starting to pick up for York and he said he hopes to hear from the Trojans who remain a school of high interest for him.
"Ole Miss so far is the only school's coaches that I've talked to," York said. "They like me as a big-back and are recruiting me.
"I'm going to talk to SC a lot and then there are a bunch of schools that are talking to my coaches about me, but so far none of them have offered yet."
York greyshirted in 2009 while he was with Texas Southern and then played this past season for Fullerton. He's on pace to finish up his AA in May and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
