Six Star Football takes a look at several of the Panhandle and Big Bend area’s top running back prospects to know in the 2021 class.
Dorrian Collier, 6’2, 200,RB,2021,Lincoln @Krypto38baby
A very hard to tackler runner that has a great power frame at 6-2, 200, big back that is tall and has some nice ability to hit the hole and then accelerate. One of those runners that has the make you miss ability and a guy that also can finish a run off with some nice power. A very nice combo back, speed, power and size should make him a player that on some high watch lists in 2020.
Jakari Ervin, 5’6, 140,RB/CB,2021,Wakulla @jakari_ervin
For sure an electric type play maker out of the slot, Ervin flat you can make it happen and a Mr. Excitement type back for Wakulla. Has some of the best wheels in the open field you will find and a player that you give him any room at all and its over, has that kind of speed. Gets the edge and he is a take it to the house speed to back that also has some nice shake and bake to his game, a flare style type open field slot guy.
Jayden Jackson, 5’9, 205,RB, 2021,Northview @0_jackson2
Huge and big time prospect with speed and more at 4.45 in the 40 yard dash and a 29 inch vertical, the Northview RB prospect is a very athletic 5-9, 205 pounds that has some muscle and power and is a very fine player that holds offers from Middle Tennessee State, Wake Forest and FIU just to name a few of those on his very impressive looking list. Had 1,776 yards and 19 TDs as one of the most productive Florida offensive players in NW Florida.
Jay Jarrett, 6’2, 196,RB,2021,FWB @Jay_Jarrett22
A guy that hits the hole and has the speed to be off to the races and is a very good straight ahead type runner, a lot of that is hitting the right hole and then pure speed to make defenders left in the dust. 6-2 nice big back frame and nearly 200 pounds so his size and speed make him one of the most dynamic and impressive backs in the state.
Emory Layerd, 5’11, 185,RB,2021, Florida State @Emory_34_L
A very slippery back that does a nice job of getting to the outside edge for some big down field gains, one of those runners that has the ability to make open field tacklers miss and a player that does a nice job of making the field bigger, can extend his runs and avoid tacklers very well. Has an offer from Ursinus.
Kybert McGlothin, 5’9, 170,RB/ATH, 2021, Choctaw @KybertM
A very gifted athlete and a talented back that can make some things happen, a very strong pound for pound runner. McGlothin reports an impressive time of 4.47 in the 40 and a 300 pound bench along with a 460 squat. Is an explosive player that makes big plays and when he gets free no ones catching him.
Shawn Parker, 5’8, 160,RB,2021,Niceville @ShawnP_7
A very talented one cut and go guy which helps Parker to move fast around the field. His primary position is running back and he ran for a very impressive 1,077 rushing yards and 161 receiving with 11 touchdowns.This 1st team all area pick has an offer from the University of Cumberland. He ran a 4.46 in the 40.
K’wan Powell, 5’11, 195,RB/LB, 2021, Vernon @kwanpowell1
This terrific athlete is a huge big time talent and has offers from MTSU, Coastal Carolina, New Mexico, Washington State just to name a few of his many many offers. One of those backs thats runs like a video game type, runner, can turn on a dime and is very shifty and a open field darter that can cut on a dime. Good athletic frame and ability and speed, a player that can also use his power and size when needed to grind and make big yards as well.
Simeon Price, 6’0, 200, RB,2021,West Florida @SimeonPrice2
One of those amazing athletes, reports a 40 inch vertical and a 4.5 time in the 40 yard dash, the 6-0, 200 Price is a player that is simply built like a powerful and athletic back that can overpower and overmatch almost anyone he faces, Price is RB that lines up in the slot a lot and has some great hands and is a top notch athlete that may project more as a big time athletic play making WR for the next level, speed and ability to make would be tacklers miss is very impressive.
Jaheim Simmons, 5’9, 198,RB,2021,West Florida @Simmonsjaheim
Already an offer from UAB, Simmons is a very strong and well put together durable back that can use that strength to make power runs but also is a phenom athlete that can make things happen with his fast footwork. Is that kind of great back that can weave through traffic with the best of them and make some huge gains and very big yardage plays. A very gifted runner that is among the most exciting players to watch for in the 21 back class.
Calvin Stringer , 5’10, 180,RB/DB,2021,Sneads @CStringer22
Stringer, a 2x All-State RB and once named All State 2nd team pick, Stringer is a very good looking athlete at RB and one of those that we look to have a huge senior year at Sneads. Stringer, who has an offer from Notre Dame (Ohio), is a back that can use his big time speed to make some huge runs and is one of those very quick hole hitters and just gets faster and faster down the field. An explosive runner that can really makes things happen in a flash with his big time speed.
Terryl Brooks-Yarbrough, 5’10, 190,RB, 2021, Milton @BrooksTerryl
One of the best all-around athletes you will find, Terryl has both speed and major power, a very strong and well put together back, his speed is very impressive, has elite field vision and hits holes very hard and fast. Is one of the top open field runners with the football, a tough nosed runner that can also bull over defenders when needed. His combination of power and speed make him one of the best looking RBs you will see in 2020.
