Northern Illinois running back Jamal Womble impressed the new coaching staff with his rare combination of size and speed during the Huskies' practice Tuesday. Womble stands at 5'11 and a whopping 246 pounds and had head coach Dave Doeren saying "you could definitely see a couple of those guys hitting the holes. ... Womble definitely is a guy who knows how to get north and south."
Womble originally signed with North Carolina but arrived at DeKalb via Hutchinson Community College. Womble will have to compete with Cameron Bell and Jasmin Hopkins to be the team's feature back.
