Name: Prince-Tyson Gulley
Position: Running back
Year: Fifth-year Senior
Hometown: Akron, OH
High School: Garfield Senior HS
2013 Stats: Gulley had 83 carries for 456 yards and four touchdowns, as well as 15 receptions for 59 yards and another TD.
2014 Projections: He's the team's top running back this year, but questions about his health have been lurking. As long as he stays off the injured list, expect him to do work. Coach McDonald will be asking him to run more, though, so let's hope his ankle is completely healed from last season.
How'd He Get Here: PTG chose Syracuse over Kansas and the entire MAC, which means the likes of Marshall, Toledo, Akron, Ball State, Eastern Michigan, bla bla bla, etc.
What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Two stars from Scout and Rivals, but ESPN gave him three.
Money Quote: Coach McDonald on what he'd like to see from PTG this year:
He'll be diverse, but the biggest thing I want him to do is be able to carry the rock and really pick up where we left off with Jerome.
Links Of Wonder: Take a look at a bit more on what's expected of PTG this year.

What Does Shafer Think Of Him: At the post-spring ACC football coaches teleconference:
I think coming out of the spring game, George Morris played well again, Prince-Tyson Gulley is solid because he can do everything as well as run the ball, catch the ball out of the backfield and his protection has improved.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: After receiving his undergraduate degree in child and family studies, he's working on a master's degree in instructional design, development, and evaluation. I'm not exactly sure what that entails, but sounds good to me!
Let's Get A Good Look Atcha: We've gotten a lot of good looks at him over the years. This post has the eleventy million videos to prove it (thank you, Dan Lyons), so go nuts. But first, relive this touchdown of his from the Pinstripe Bowl. I dig it.
