Abdul has speed, and while there is some question about his size (various sites have him listed between 185 and 205, there is no denying his talent. He is a home run threat at the running back position for sure. He has offers from Mich St., Notre Dame, Pitt, WVU, and recently visited Ohio State. Here is his highlight video.

Whaley is similar in size to Adams, but appears to be more a physical runner. He is plenty fast but doesn't have the top end speed of Adams. Devwah holds offers from Arkansas, Arizona St., Baylor, Ole Miss, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, and TTech along with a Sooner offer. Here is Whaley's highlight video.
