On the Hoof: Carlisle has long arms and a lower body that is well developed and looks similar to a short-distance track star. He is built similar to Texas Tech freshman Delans Griffin.
Needs Improvement: Carlisle seems a bit stiff in the hips when changing directions, leaving him a bit upright and vulnerable to a big hit. He needs to improve his route running along with his ability to adjust to the ball in the air.
Most Impressive: Has excellent overall speed and is not brought down easily with arm tackles. Carlisle has the ability to keep his speed at an elevated level when changing directions by using his quick feet. His frame can hold another 20 pounds which should allow him to become an every-down back.
Conclusion: Could make an early impact as a kick returner at the next level, while working his way into the significant playing time during his sophomore season.
