Alston is a 5’10”, 185 lb. running back/ wide receiver from South Lakes High School in Reston, Virginia. Yale lists him as a RB, but in most of his footage he is lined up in the slot. He is a dynamic athlete with the ball in his hands displaying great vision, cutback ability and the toughness to grind out additional yards after contact. Alston has the speed to beat defenders to the edge and the balance to tiptoe along the sidelines for huge gains. His size, speed and agility are reminiscent of Melvin Rouse and he has the potential to see time at RB, WR, PR or KR in his Freshman campaign.
