The 2016 class should be another strong year for running backs in the Midwest, and one prospect who has emerged early as a top Division I target is Kentrail Moran of O'Fallon, Ill.
The 5-foot-9, 186-pound Moran was named one of the top underclassmen at the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour stop in the St. Louis area in April. He has since added an offer from Northern Illinois and has more schools showing interest early.
"Schools like Michigan, Ohio State, West Virginia, Miami and Nebraska are showing interest," Moran said.
With his process still in the infant stages, Moran is wide open to all schools interested in him. One school he has had his eye on for some time, however, is Michigan.
"I have been liking Michigan since I was nine years old," Moran said. "I just like the team chemistry and how they play."
Moran is hoping to make it out for a Michigan game this fall. He is also looking at attending Florida, Illinois, Miami and West Virginia games. He expects to take several of those visits with teammates, including Rivals250 class of 2014 defensive end Dewayne Hendrix.
"I plan on going with Dewayne on his official visits. He's just told me about the Florida one on Oct. 5," Moran said. "The coach from Illinois, I called him the other day and he was talking about coming down next week."
Moran has been a feature back for O'Fallon since his freshman year. He opened his sophomore campaign last weekend by rushing for 120 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries.
"I think I am a lot better than last year," Moran said. "I am bigger, I am faster, I am stronger and I have more moves."
