Banks is a jack-of-all-trades on the football field just like current San Diego Chargers running back Darren Sproles, who is also a Kansas State alumnus. Both are smaller, but play much bigger on gameday. Banks has also drawn comparisons to current Cleveland Browns WR/KR Josh Cribbs (although he is a much smaller version). Besides returning kicks, Banks could likely serve in the Wildcat role if the Redskins decide to implement such a formation.
Banks is dangerous anytime he touches the football, having the ability to score from anywhere on the football field. He has reportedly run the 40 yard dash in 4.25.
His stats are after the jump.

Banks earned first-team All-America honors from JC Gridwire as an all-purpose player/wide receiver. He was also named a PrepStar JUCO All-American. He helped lead Bakersfield to a No. 1 national ranking, a 12-1 record on the season and a berth in the Southern California championship game. His 15 touchdowns set a school record. (Wikipedia)
