Summer inspections are taking shape and recruiters are coming off the board all the time. Here’s a breakdown of the top 10 irregular running back recruits in 2023 as we continue a two-week series looking at each position.
The big news from the country’s No. 1 came on Sunday when he replaced a tour with Florida for June at the USC, setting the stage for his four official trips that would help determine his landing location. Haynes, who owns Power House Bufford, Ga. A will play his senior season, touring Georgia in early June, and then off to Florida, Alabama and Ohio State Month. His father played for the Bulldogs and Haynes, the top goal of running behind Georgia.

Big news was made this weekend by Vance, who has canceled his trip to Georgia and will visit TCU and Louisville instead. This is an amazing turn of events for the top all-purpose in the 2023 class and it could open a new window between his thinking and the top teams. Some doubt that the cardinal or the horned frog has a real chance at this moment but the visits may change. Texas looks the best in its hiring so far but Texas also has A&M.
The top seven in Texas A&M, Georgia, Ohio State, Alabama, Oklahoma, Oregon and Florida were released in April but since then the four-star Lehigh Acres (Fla.) Has added an official tour from Lehi to Notre Dame. This could make things very interesting if the Irish blow him up – and the addition of a position coach Deland McCallo Cannot be underestimated. But the feeling here is that the Crimson Tide is starting to move away from the pack and has the best shots of landing big, strong backs if there are no surprises in store.
Towards the end of March, Jackson released the top 10 of Alabama, Baylor, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas A&M, but it felt like a battle between the state’s tigers and Aegis. It has long been believed that Texas A&M holds the edge because LSU has not offered until recently and this has led to the closure of the Baton Rouge (LA) magnet standout.
But LSU has repaired the fence and continues to build that relationship with local four-stars. New offers from Florida and Auburn may make things interesting, but his only official tour so far is at Texas A&M in mid-June. If LSU can continue the hard work, Jackson may be tempted to stay close.
Florida, Baylor, South Carolina, Tennessee and Penn State emerged as the top five on the web in late March, and an official tour is coming up that could prove crucial in its final decision. Webb has already de-committed to weak situations during his recruitment from Georgia and Oklahoma so there is a uncertainty for his next pick. The belief is that Florida has emerged in the running ahead.
Webb respects South Carolina and the work that Gamecocks has done to recruit him and he feels necessary in Colombia, and makes Tennessee things interesting, but the Gators must feel right.
Can Florida pull the double-in-state gate of a four-star running back with the web, an all-purpose back and pass-catcher, and Baxter, who ran for 1,718 yards and 26 touchdowns in the Monster Junior season? This is very possible because Gators, Texas, Texas A&M, Arkansas and Miami make the top list of Baxter.
Hurricanes could lay a serious foundation for this recruitment and schools in Texas are fighting Baxter loved his visit to Arkansas so razorbacks still can’t be counted.
Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee and Texas Montgomery (Ala.) Montgomery have made it to the top six for four-star all-purpose from Catholic, but that could only be window dressing because the feeling is that Auburn has a big lead. Now his appointment.
Cobb is an in-state prospect, he likes the whole coaching staff there and his relationship with the position coach. Cadillac Williams His appointment may be the best. It would be amazing if he finished somewhere else, but Tennessee and Clemson can make the best shots.
Listed as an all-purpose back, Priyan will be switched to his preferred wide receiver position in the next round of rankings in June. There is a long list of schools interested in including St. James, La., Auburn, Florida State, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi State and others but when LSU proposed, the Tigers were going to be hard to beat.
It’s not just the power of the state, Prian dreamed of playing there and he knows a lot of new coaching staff when they were at other schools.
After talking to Singleton Rival Camp Series In this offseason, there is a feeling that his appointment can still go a long way and is probably nowhere near a decision. Some believe Florida State is the losing team but in the rival event he said Michigan, Louisville, Penn State and Tennessee hired him the toughest this time around.
Any pick at this point would be a complete guess because things could go in different directions.
Randle’s hiring seemed to go one way and then came a bunch of new offers for the four stars returning from Wichita (Kan.) Heights that could turn things around.
Texas is now involved but four-star Trey Wisner is already in class and Ruben Owens is on the hunt, with Randall waiting to see what the Longhorns do there. Kansas State, Oklahoma State and others remain in controversy as Randall continues to add offers.
Prediction: Kansas State
