High School Football Recruiting: Lemming's Top Big Backs & Fullbacks
Byrnes (Duncan, SC)
A very powerful runner with good instincts, he gets a good percentage of his yards after initial contact.
South Panola (Batesville, MS)
His coach, Lance Pogue, calls him a big tailback you can count on.
Linganore (Frederick, MD)
He has a good combination of speed and power, runs hard between the tackles
Harding (Fort Wayne, IN)
He shows the patience to wait for his blocks to open, he plants and drives quickly, and shows a good initial burst.
Washington (Atlanta, GA)
He transferred in from Loganville and has probably become one of the most recruited players in the state of Georgia.
Marcus (Flower Mound, TX)
He's a downhill runner who, once he picks up steam, is awfully tough to bring down.
Anthony has what it takes to become a difference maker at the college level and to be an impact player as a true freshman.
Newbury Park (CA)
One of the best big backs west of the Mississippi, Cam comes to play every game.
Citrus Hill (Perris, CA)
He could make an impact as a true freshman and certainly has the speed and production to do just that.
When healthy he ranks as one of the better bigger backs in the state of Texas.
He keeps his pads low and hits defenders like a ton of bricks, which allows him to get significant yardage after contact.
Troup County (LaGrange, GA)
He does an excellent job of picking up yards after contact.
Melrose (Memphis, TN)
He's been blessed with terrific vision and balance, has very good strength, and runs through many first-contact hits.
MEMPHIS, OLE MISS, AL, and MISS STATE
Southwest DeKalb (Decatur, GA)
Certainly shows the size, burst, vision, and cutting ability to make it at the next level.
Washington (Cedar Rapids, IA)
He shows very fluid hips, can accelerate on a dime and although he may not have breakaway speed, he has enough speed to take the ball the distance.
A power back with surprising speed and balance, he has the strength to move the pile and the speed to take it outside.
A leader both on and off the field, he is a powerhouse of a back who gets stronger as the game progresses.
O'Dea (Seattle, WA)
The best big back in the state of Washington, Zach is a hard-nosed back with agility, strength, and balance.
Hoover (North Canton, OH)
Exceptional between the tackles, he shows some burst and can get outside but is more comfortable running between the tackles.
Vigor (Prichard, AL)
A determined back, he can get you the tough yards between the tackles.
Columbia (Lake City, FL)
A well-built back, he can get low and pick up tough yardage between the tackles.
Woodward Academy (College Park, GA)
He can be deadly in the open field, and possesses the elusiveness and vision needed to become a go-to back at the next level.
Aldine (Houston, TX)
He can play TB or FB at the next level.
He runs low to the ground with very good power, vision, and balance.
Narbonne (Harbor City, CA)
This guy can block and he's exceptional in short yardage situations.
