After a redshirt last season, Michael Pierre is ready to break out this season. 

Michael Pierre – Redshirt junior – 5’10” 202 lbs. – Winter Garden, FL (Agape Christian HS) (Golden West CC) – Running back

2012: Pierre took a redshirt last season.

2013 Bull Rush Projection: Pierre is battling for carries this season against a loaded roster.  During the spring game, Pierre carried the rock 10 times, but totaled just 14 yards on those carries.  While those numbers weren’t great, they have to be taken with a grain of salt.  It was the spring game, teams were split, and no one else had a lot of success.  Which means, the battle for the starting job is still wide open.

Pierre has a solid mixture of size and speed that should allow him to take a lot of carries this season.  Marcus Shaw, the most experience running back on the roster, would seem to be the starter, but Pierre’s size would help him carry more of the power running game we could see this year.  Pierre will battle with Shaw and the incoming freshmen for carries.

    Pierre is a BIG guy compared to Shaw, could def see him getting the ball inside the 20.

    He is, not as quick as Shaw, but better north-south runner. I just wonder his carries this season with McCray and Tice now on the roster, how many carries do they get and how does Willie Davis factor in.
