Standouts name leaders
When you’re a National Championship contender nearly year-in-and-year-out recruits are sure to take notice. Always searching the high school level and building relationships with top talent, two more highly sought after prospects listed Ohio State among their current college choices over the weekend.
Cutting his list down on Friday from 30 scholarship offers from programs throughout the country, four-star class of 2022 running back Kaytron Allen joins a number of his IMG Academy (FL) teammates — such as offensive tackle’s Tyler Booker, Aliou Bah, and defensive linemen Jihaad Campbell and Dominick James — in considering calling Columbus his future stomping grounds.
Joining Ohio State on the list, Alabama, Maryland, Tennessee, Penn State, USC, Georgia, Florida, Texas, and the University of Miami round out Allen’s potential landing spots.
Ryan Day and crew might have their work in store for them when it comes to Allen. Pegged as the No. 8 running back and 116th overall prospect in the class of 2022, per the 247Sports Composite Rankings, the 5-foot-11, 206-pound Allen, who is originally from Virginia, has some around the recruiting scene forecasting he’ll end up playing the SEC for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide of Alabama.
Joining Allen, another Sunshine State standout listed Ohio State among his favorites. Dropping his top six after announcing his decommitment from the Georgia Bulldogs, class of 2023 four-star athlete Treyaun Webb could still end up at UGA, but is also now taking another look at OSU, Penn State, Oklahoma, Florida, and LSU.
“Georgia is obviously my dream school. Florida is like a legacy school, my cousin (Dee Webb) played there, and it’s close to home. Oklahoma has been in consistent contact with me and I’ve grown a relationship with the coaches. The same with LSU, Penn State, and Ohio State.” Webb stated to 247Sports.
A top-35 prospect, Webb is fresh off a sophomore season where he carried the ball 123 times for over 800 yards and 12 touchdowns, pacing the Trinity Christian Conquerors to an overall record of 12-1 and another state championship title.
- Passing for 167 yards and scoring two touchdowns, class of 2022 five-star quarterback and OSU pledge Quinn Ewers helped lead Southlake Carroll (TX) upset Duncanville (TX), 34-27. Now fighting for a state title, Ewers and his squad will mix it up with 13-0 Austin Westlake (TX) this upcoming Saturday.
