Which five programs are recruiting RBs the best in 2021?
It’s the end of June and commitments are still coming in like crazy, but it’s also a great time to analyze which programs are recruiting the best at each position for 2021. Here’s my take on the running backs.
CLASS OF 2022: Top 100
1. OHIO STATE
The Buckeyes easily lead the way with Virginia running back Treyveyon Henderson and North Carolina running back Evan Pryor. Both are elite, Rivals100 prospects with speed, agility and sneaky strength.
With Will Shipley the nation’s No. 1 all-purpose back committed and Phil Mafah as a big, downhill guy in the Rivals250, this is a great 1-2 punch for Clemson. Shipley can do it all in the offense and Mafah can wear a defense down. Things just keep getting better for the Tigers.
4. NORTH CAROLINA
Odds and ends: Auburn has a really good get in the form of in-state standout Armoni Godwin. ... USC has Brandon Campbell from Texas as a big-time running back commitment. ... Missouri has the best three-star tandem in Taj Butts and BJ Harris. ... Pitt has a nice combination in Malik Newton and Rodney Hammond.
