J.T. Gray has moved out of state, who takes over the #1 spot?

2013 Arizona Preseason RB Prospect Rankings

1. Matt Guida – Queen Creek
2. Dominique Drake – Buena
3. Rajhan Meriwether – Basha
4. Josh Hoekstra – Pinnacle
5. Dedrick Young (JR) – Centennial
6. Marquice Paige – Agua Fria
7. Elijah Castro – Chaparral
8. Jett Robertson (JR) – Ironwood
9. Jaylon James (JR) – Cactus
10. Nolan Cook – Blue Ridge

Small School- Cale Merrell – Duncan. Rushed for over 2,000 yards as a junior and scored 27 TDs.

Riser- Dedrick Young – Centennial. Young is already ranked pretty high but he could push for the top spot in a hurry. He is right at 6 foot, weighs over 200 pounds, has been clocked at 4.5 and is one of the state’s top hurdlers.

Sleepers- Two guys that stand out to me are Jermaine Shannon at Alhambra and Corey Brown from Sunrise Mountain. Both are big backs and I expect them to get plenty of carries. Shannon definitely will in the Lions’ Wing-T offense. Brown moved over from LB, where he was an all-section performer.

Little Giant- Jordan Green – Agua Fria- Green is only 5-9 but put up good numbers last year, I expect more of the same in 2013.
