RALEIGH (WTVD) --Jaylen Samuels touched the ball 121 times last year for the Wolfpack, 65 catches and 56 rushing attempts. It all added up to 965 all-purpose yards and 16 touchdowns -- big numbers.
And yet many fans and folks were left wondering why he didn't see a lot more of the ball in big games.
With a new offensive coordinator in town and a new jersey number that befits his status as a top player, Samuels is not shy about what he plans on accomplishing this year. Given adequate opportunities, it wouldn't be smart to bet against him.
