High School: Enrolled at Ohio State at the beginning of spring quarter and took part in spring practice … impressed the coaches with his hard running and quick grasp of the system … impressed the 45,000 fans at the annual spring game by running for more than 100 yards and leading both teams in rushing … runs low and gets his pads square to the line of scrimmage … is a slashing type of runner … compares favorably to former OSU tailback Michael Wiley in terms of running style and has Wiley-like speed and quickness … sees the hole well and has a good burst … can catch the ball and that will work in his favor … one of four scholarship tailbacks on the roster and one of two in this year’s class of recruits … certainly gained valuable experience in the spring … how much he plays in the fall depends on his continued development and the health of the running back corps … ran for 1,300 yards last year and won All-Ohio honors even though he missed three games with a turf toe injury – an injury that plagued him all season long … averaged more than 12 yards per carry and scored 17 touchdowns last year … coaches like his burst and ability to make tacklers miss.

Personal: Is the son of Valerie Pittman and Marcus McKinnie … has three sisters, Marquetta, April and Chemika … plans to major in African-American studies.
