ESPN Recruiting Profile
Timmons is an explosive offensive weapon who sees most of his duty in the backfield as a zone runner, but has upside as a slot receiver or even outside vertical threat with further development. He has a sleek, athletic build with a wiry frame. He possesses initial quickness and a noticeable second gear, which stands out. He is a speedy glider who is extremely light on his feet and demonstrates outstanding elusiveness. He’s a versatile running back prospect with home run potential as a runner, receiver and return specialist. He shows good initial burst when he hits the hole. For a smaller back, he is not really much of a dancer — he’s more of a north-south, no-nonsense runner who can cut on a dime and has a great first step. He has great change-of-direction abilities, excellent vision and does a tremendous job of making tacklers miss. He very smoothly weaves his way through traffic as opposed to sharp quickness. He is so smooth that at times it doesn’t look as if he’s moving all that fast, yet no one seems to run him down. He reads his blocks well, will hit the backside cut lanes and can create on his own. He also has the speed to get to the corner on tosses and outside zones, and is especially effective in the passing game on screens, draws and swing passes. He lacks bulk and lower-body strength right now and needs to get into a college weight program. He is not a physical player right now. For all his big-play capability, Timmons would also make a great corner. He has great ball skills and is an instinctive football player.
