1. OHIO STATE

Evan Pryor (Nick Lucero/Rivals.com)

Evan Pryor and TreVeyon Henderson are an amazing 1-2 punch in this class and will keep the running game going at Ohio State. Pryor can do a lot out of the backfield as a receiver and Henderson has every down back size.

2. TEXAS A&M

LJ Johnson

Landing LJ Johnson in the second signing period was key as he’s a workhorse who can wear teams down between the tackles, while Amari Daniels can scoot and make people miss despite a lack of great size.

3. CLEMSON

Will Shipley

Will Shipley is the nation’s top all-purpose back and Phil Mafah doesn’t get enough attention. Shipley will most likely play the Travis Etienne role at Clemson and be tough in space while Mafah is a nice change-of-pace option.

4. LSU

Corey Kiner

Corey Kiner is elite and could be a steal like some other Midwest prospects that have had success at LSU. The addition of versatile Armoni Goodwin is key for the Tigers’ passing game.

5. ALABAMA

Camar Wheaton

Texas running back Camar Wheaton is the only back in the class but, as the nation’s only five-star prospect at his position, he could be the next great one for Alabama.

6. NOTRE DAME

Audric Estime
Audric Estime (Rivals.com)

Audric Estime, a key get away from Michigan State, has every-down ability while keeping Louisiana speedster Logan Diggs will loom very large in the years to come.
