The designation of "Athlete" is typically given to players who don't easily fit into one category, and it's no surprise that Sione Lund gets this label. While some schools recruited Lund for the talent he's shown at linebacker, Stanford coaches see him as a running back, and it's hard to argue with that, considering he rushed for 5,480 yards and 51 touchdowns in his prep career. There is no shortage of running backs with speed and quickness on the Stanford roster right now, but Lund brings size and strength that's been lacking since the departure of Remound Wright. But Lund is more than just a short-yardage back. He averaged 16.1 yards per carry in 2016, and his film (below) shows a dynamic runner who's as comfortable on the edge as he is between the tackles. Even so, he probably doesn't project as an every down tailback, but his unique combination of size and quickness could lead to a reimagining of the fullback position in the Stanford offense. He would be a devastating lead blocker, but his speed and quickness would offer options the Cardinal's current fullbacks can't provide. Also, if you miss Spider 3Y Banana, Lund will bring it back with a vengeance. He's already a better receiver than most running backs.
Lund has spoken of going on an LDS mission following high school graduation, and although that doesn't seem likely, it still remains a possibility. Considering the current backfield depth on the Stanford roster, Lund will almost certainly redshirt during his first season, but he should be an important member of the Cardinal offense sooner rather than later.
