It's a very deep year in the state of Alabama for running back prospects, so it's no surprise that under-the-radar talent Justin Albert of Prattville High is sitting on two scholarship offers and has plenty of interest from a number of other programs.
"I've got an offer from Vanderbilt and an offer from Hawaii," he said. "Vanderbilt is a good school and has a pretty good offense. It's just something I have to sit down and think about. With Hawaii, I've really never given any thought to Hawaii."
In addition to the Commodores and Warriors, Auburn, Florida, Clemson, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Memphis and LSU all have shown interest in the 5-foot-9, 180-pounder.
Among the team's that haven't offered, Albert said the Gators are a team that has caught his eye. Auburn also is high on his list.
Albert could potentially play slot receiver in college and also is a skilled kick returner (punts and kickoffs), so there's a chance he could switch positions in college.
"The depth chart is going to be important to me," Albert said. "Will I get to play. Also, I want to know their offense."
He had a solid outing on Saturday at the West Lafayette NIKE Camp on the campus of Purdue University.
"It went good for a lot of the camp," he said. "I had to step it up and play my best and I did."
Albert did a lot of playing his best last season when he rushed for 1,700 yards and had 35 total touchdowns in leading Prattville to the Class 6A championship.
