Kiandrea Barker, 6-1, 185, RB, 2025, Beebe (Ark.) @Kiandreabarker
One of the most talented young prospects in the midwest, Barker is a talented prospect who, while listed as a running back, could be a major impact player as a receiver as well. He has elite speed as he recorded a laser timed 4.55 40-yard dash in St. Louis on May 14 along with terrific. He shows quick feet, agility and strong balance and adds terrific route running, strong hands and the ability to run smooth, crisp routes as a receiver. He can win 50-50 balls, can climb the ladder and make tough catches look easy and can break away from a defense after the catch. Barker has terrific strength for a young player, reporting 245 bench, 475 squat, 235 power clean — but has a lean frame that projects well with age. Barker added his third Power 5 offer on Monday as he added SMU to a list that already includes Penn State and Pittsburgh. Barker was awarded the FUTURES MVP in the first session of Sunday’s All-America Showcase at Liberty North (MO) High School.
Michael Dempsey, 6-0, 193, RB, 2025, Newsome (Fla.) @_michaeldempsey
An incredibly stout and muscular freshman who has a good combination of strength and size. Dempsey is a tall player at 6’0 and shows good hands and acceleration. He is an extremely motivated player and one who is pushing himself with his strength training and has already showcased an ability to use his strength on the field while still recording a 4.85 laser-timed 40-yard dash and has a 9-4 broad jump and a 31.8 vertical. He has a max bench press of 280 pounds and has a 355 squat, a 215 power clean and a 205 hang clean at last report.
Jax Glendenning, 5-8, 155, RB, 2025, Lebanon (Mo.) @JaxGlen
An energetic player who puts a lot of effort into each rep and matchup. Glendenning plays with good passion and intensity and he shows consistent improvement year-after-year. A muscular RB for his age, a 5’8, 165-pounds who maintains his speed and momentum throughout a long day during the summer and under the lights during a season game. He uses his blockers well and also has good hands for his age and is improving his receiving abilities in space and along the sideline.
Jayden McCaster, 5-5, 145, RB, 2026, John Burroughs (Mo.) @JaydenMcCaster3
One of the up and coming young talents out of St. Louis, this John Burroughs running back has the speed and vision to be a good back and is one of the up and coming runners that we saw in action at the FINALS in the 2026 class. Might not be the biggest back on the field but has the speed and vision to hit the holes quickly and be an effective runner with the ball.
Nathan Reynolds, 5-8, 175, RB, 2025, Harrisonville (Mo.) @nate_reynolds25
Harrisonville 2025 Nathan Reynolds is a name to know in the rising freshman class. Kid is a player. Don’t pay attention to his height and weight, and yes those things may prevent him from being a big time football prospect someday down the road, but for now, he is arguably the state’s most productive high school freshman. Reynolds goes both ways and plays the game with moxie. He is tough, physical and has elite level speed and quickness. On offense, he is mostly operating as a ball carrier either in the “Wildcat” or taking a handoff and shows terrific vision, cut back abilities and quickness. He runs with a low center of gravity and is hard to knock off balance. On defense, he plays bigger than his listed height and weight and is willing to make a big hit or a solid, clean tackle.
Gavin Shanahan, 5-9, 160, RB, 2025, Elkhorn South (Neb.) @gavinshanhan24
A two-way player who can see time as a ball carrier and as a safety. He is listed at 5’9, 160-pounds and he showed good involvement and production his freshman year. He shuffles his feet well, can change directions and is able to make a positive play when it looks as though he is going to get wrapped up at the line. An improving player who is working hard this off-season. Shanahan reports a 4.8 40-yard dash and has a 34.4 inch vertical and a 9 ft broad jump as well.
Evan Wells, 6-2, 210, RB, 2024, Roxana (Ill.) @EvanWells2024
Good looking back out of Roxana High School in Illinois, Wells has impressed us both at the FINALS and the St. Louis Showcase this year and has the talent to be a top junior back in Illinois this year with his hard running style and impressive big back frame at 6-2, 210 pounds. A strong, imposing RB option who shows terrific power and force. Wells is a solid athlete and stock riser who has a versatile frame and the ability to see time on both sides of the ball. He’s listed at 6’2, 210-pounds and he is just starting to get a good feel for his position as a RB and can really run opponents over once he has the ball. Has good strength for a player his age and has a high IQ both on and off the field, reporting a 4.0 GPA. Also a good blocker as well and he has good versatility on the defensive side of the ball and can make plays as a middle linebacker. A stock riser with good control and strength.
