One of the fastest rising prospects in the Golden State is running back Louis Rankin (6-1, 190, 4.4) from Stockton (Calif.) Lincoln. Rankin came on strong with a fabulous senior season that saw him garner several offers and honors along the way.
There was a rumor that Rankin committed to Washington but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. The word is Colorado made a very strong late run for Rankin but the Huskies are still the team to beat. Rankin could make his decision any day.
Rankin had a phenomenal senior season rushing for 2,250 yards and 42 touchdowns. His performance for 2002 saw Rankin selected 1st-team all-state, Area Player of the Year and League MVP.
Rankin has offers from Cal, Colorado, Oregon State, Washington, Fresno State and Boise State.
