D.J. Monroe: A Star is Born
Does the Lonestar State have room for another star?
The University of Texas’s D.J. Monroe was the first week of college football season’s break-out player. The first time he ever touched the ball, the redshirt freshman and former track champ returned a kick-off 89 yards.
The craziest part is, he essentially came out of nowhere. Nobody had him penciled into the Longhorns’ backfield
Monroe also had nine carries for 64 yards and a touchdown. He adds game-changing ability every time he touches the ball from here on out. Where did this incredible weapon come from?
Monroe is originally from Angleton, Texas, which is a small town just outside of Houston. He dominated on both sides of the ball at Angleton High, and was originally projected to be a defensive back.
Here is a highlight reel of him making play after big time play as a cornerback for Angleton:
That reel showed that on top of his blazing speed, Monroe has preternatural instincts, a motor that never stops and great strength. It’s hard to believe that nobody was talking about this guy only two days ago.
Fair to say, that won’t happen again.
