Xavier Arambula, 5’10, 200, RB, 2023, Mid-Buchanan (Mo.) @XavierArambula
One of the Missouri products that is a senior back and rising prospect is Mid-Buchanan’s Xavier Arambula, a player and runner that can has a power frame, at 200 pounds he is a tough runner to bring down, Xavier also made some nice catches at the Finals and is a player that could us his hands as a RB prospect that can catch more and more out of the backfield for Mid-Buchanan. Graceland and Doane have offered this impressively build back and ’23 riser at RB prospect.
Tayshaun Balmir, 5-9, 190, RB, 2023, Pasco (Fla.) @Tbalmir5
Electric speed as a guy that can certainly turn some heads with his lights out speed is this Pasco Florida High School back and guy that has some big time wheels. Balmir, a player that was the fastest player in the Kansas City session one event on Saturday, he proved he can flat out fly and should be a guy that really is a hot senior speed player to have on the Florida radar among backs that can move and make guys miss. Balmir uses that speed on the field to claim the outside edge and then be a major burner down the field that can make defenses pay, needs very little room to bust off a huge run for a big time play for the Pasco offense.
Tavion Campbell, 5-10, 188, RB, 2023, Roosevelt (Mo.) @Tavoofinessin
Campbell is a senior this year from Roosevelt High, a player that showed some shiftiness and also made some impressive catches at the Finals, a guy that could be in for a big final season ahead, an athletic back that can use good movement to make guys miss, hands some hands and quickness also that can prove hard to match and also shows some good footwork to make defenders miss and not be a still target for the defense to tackle. Looks to be a riser to watch for in the area and a player in St. Louis that has a big senior year on tap.
Markevous Curiton, 5-8, 180, RB, 2023, Belleville East (Ill.) @markeviouscuri1
A very impressive athlete and a player that has impressed at several events we have seen him at, this Belleville East product will look to jump onto more and more next level radars with a big senior season in 2022. Curiton is back that earned the MVP award for RBs at the Finals and is one of those athletes that has a lot of pure athletic potential to build upon and make colleges pay more and more attention to his running attack. Has some power and good footwork and will look to be a guy that will be hard to handle as a senior RB prospect in the Metro East area of St. Louis.
Mekhai Gover, 5-10, 185, RB, 2023, University City (Mo.) @khai_kai6
Gover is a University City back and senior that will be looking for a big final season ahead and is a runner that can create an an offensive play maker and weapon, can use open field speed and footwork and make guys miss and rack up some big plays for the University City offense. A player that has good upfield vision and is a player that hits the running lanes hard and can be a guy that can be very hard to tackle and handle for opposing defenses in space.
Brice Johnson, 5-7, 170, RB, 2023, Bishop Ward (Kan.) @BJr2265
Johnson is a back from Bishop Ward that can beat a defense in several ways, has some good open field moves, can be a RB or special teams standout as a return man, one of those elusive in space kind of running backs, and has the speed to take it to the house with any touch or chance he gets, good looking player that should be a name to know for KCK players in the radar for the ’23 class. Johnson has a knack for reading a defense and seeing the best running lanes to attack as a ball carrier.
Devyn Jones, 6-0, 210, RB, 2023, Papillion-LaVista South (Neb.) @Djones_402
Jones is one of those running backs that can go off at any time for a huge game and went over 200 yards last year against Omaha Central, a team that has a lot of impressive defensive play makers. Jones has some power and good speed for being a back over 200 pounds at 210 pounds, Jones can take a direct snap and either run a guy over or beat the defense to the spot for a quick 8-10 yard scamper up the field for a big gain to move the chains, impressive athlete, also very quick in space at 210 and a player that we think will have a big final year of recruitment ahead.
Sidney Lockhart, 5-7, 160, RB, 2023, Mill Valley (Kan.) @sidneylockhart9
Speed is the name of the game one of the better looking Kansas lightning backs to know out there, Mill Valley will look to take big advantage of Lockhart’s speed and ability to create in space and be an off to the races kind of electric back for the offense that will be looking for impressive weapons to accompany QB Hayden Jay in 2022. A track star also, Lockhart holds an Army offer in that sport and is one of those elite speed prospects that should be a very fun RB to watch this upcoming season for the powerhouse Mill Valley program.
Jerry Richardson, 5-10, 175, RB, 2023, Collinsville (Ill.) @liljerrykidd04
McKendree has offered Richardson already and it could be the start of a busy senior season of recruitment for this 5-10, 175 back from Collinsville High School in Metro East St. Louis. Good looking athlete and a player that can beat the defense with speed, also a kick return man that can make you miss and then pay the price with some big open field returns, good looking athlete, has nice vision and a knack for hitting the lanes and racing down the field with his speed.
Cole Skorupa, 5-9, 185, RB, 2023, Lincoln Pius X (Neb.) @Sk1Cole
A very impressive looking athlete and a pound for pound very strong back, 255 bench press at 185 pounds, can also use some hands when needed and has played WR along with RB for Pius X in Lincoln. Good looking back that is a very talented athlete and will look to become one of the top senior rushing leaders in Nebraska football in 2022. Cole is a player that we look to be that MVP type of back for the program at Pius X, a top offensive play maker that is hard to beat for some nice versatility and big offensive plays.
Jobe Smith, 5-11, 190, RB, 2023, North County (Mo.) @JobeSmith_11
Smith will look to repeat his impressive junior season in 2021 at North County, a year in which he racked up 1938 rushing yards, 27 rushing touchdowns, 2907 All-Purpose yards and 36 touchdowns. Smith has been an offensive machine and will be one of those athletes that will be looking for another huge senior season in 2022 and will be one of the hardest players to contain in Missouri out of the backfield. Southwest Baptist has offered and we like his chances of being a riser in the recruiting world for RBs that can impact the game for the next level.
Drew VanGilder, 5-10, 185, RB, 2023, Joplin (Mo.) @drew_vangilder
One of the top looking players in Southwest Missouri, Joplin’s powerful back will be looking to he a run you over power back at Joplin and a guy that will be a key offensive machine for the offense in 2022. VanGilder, 5-10, 185, and a very solid built for power RB, is a player that has a big upside and a RB that we could see being one of the must see runners in that region of the state, has the build and the talent to garner a busy recruiting senior season ahead at Joplin Highschool. Also a very hard working player with a very impressive work ethic.
