FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The Six Star Football 2021 Florida Showcase featured several talented rising class of 2023-24 RB prospects from around the state as several players took their game to new heights and showed off their all-around skills in both the Six Star Football combine and showcase events.
181 — Alan Bailey, Jr., 5-6, 196, RB, 2023, Cocoa @AlanBaileyJr
Bailey is a player that can use one major impressive physical physique and speed to be a lethal threat for the offense at Cocoa. Bailey is a big time prospect that has great hands and feet and you have to account for him at all times or he will burn you in a big way. Love his build and his knack for making big plays, special play maker to know for 2021.
772 — Kyree Edwards, 5-8, RB, 2023, Gainesville @d1ky3
Edwards is one of the super hot prospects we saw at the 6Star Football FL Showcase, a runner that can run you over and runs super hard, like to add in some impressive moves but also is a power back that can flatten would be tacklers and make 5-7 yards at a time to move the chains and keep the Gainesville offense moving down the field. Big time impressive back to watch out for.
252 — Troy Morales, 5-6, 150, RB, 2023, Marco Island @TroyMorales05
Morales is a player that can be pure lightning for speed at Marco Island, a team looking to use him for big gains with his feet out of their backfield and a key veteran who has two huge years left. Morales is a player that can also be a key impact outside linebacker, 3 sport athlete with sky as the limit type of potential.
789 — Rhyder Poppell, 5-10, 185, RB, 2023, Maclay @RhyderPoppell
Poppell is a player really on the rise in the junior class of 2023 to be in Florida, love his skills and his leave it all on the field mentality, an exciting back that will do whatever it takes to make an extra yard plus being a big time athlete also helps, great frame, tough and relentless worker, no doubt a junior hot pick of ours to be something very special. Poppell made an impression in the combine portion of the 2021 Six Star Football Florida Showcase, recording a 4.90 laser timed 40-yard dash, along with a 113 inch broad jump — good for the sixth best overall jump at the event — and a 35.7 inch vertical.
772 — Kenneth Walker, 6-0, RB, 2023, Wiregrass Ranch @_Kenny_Walker
One of the class of 2023 runners that was very impressive at the 6Star Football FL Showcase, no doubt Walker is a 6-0 size guy that can make huge things happen for Wiregrass Ranch. Walker is a machine and has a great power build and with two years left could be one of the most punishing running back prospects in the state of Florida. No doubt this guy has a great frame, going to be tough in 2021.
Maurice Watkins, 6-5, 155, RB, 2024, Ridge Community @mauricew__
The youngest running back at the 6Star Football FL Showcase but without question one of the most impressive along with being the tallest running back at the event with a long and lean 6-5, 155 pound frame. Has very good vision and is a runner with some moves also, with his size and skills no doubt could be one of the big time super sophomores in 2021 in the state of Florida.
