Philadelphia, Pa., native Jamal Abdur-Rahman is a running back that helped his team to a Class AAAA Pennsylvania State Championship and already has an offer from Maryland. Others like Syracuse, Rutgers, Pittsburgh and Connecticut are in contact with him and just got his junior highlights.

Jamal Abdur-Rahman is a 5-foot-9, 170-pound running back from La Salle College High School that brings great athleticism to the field and while the three-star athlete is being recruited by Maryland, Syracuse, Rutgers, Pittsburgh and Connecticut as a running back, we could definitely see him playing in the defensive backfield as well with his tremendous ball skills, ability to turn into an offensive player once he gets a turnover and great hips and speed.
