Signing Day 2013: Xavier Menifield

NU Sports/Northwestern Football

Xavier Menifield (5-9, 178) RB

The California prospect shows dynamic straight-line speed. He has the ability to hit the hole hard on dives but on stretch plays, can be patient and let the hole open. He’s a tough kid for his size (just under six feet and around 200 pounds) and was very productive out on the West Coast, running for over 3,000 yards in his last two years and averaged 10.1 yards per carry his senior year. Menifield might be in for some carries if he impresses in training camp.
