Three running backs headline bottom part of the Central Texas Top 25 Prospect update. Joining the three ball carriers in this update, which features prospects No. 25 to No. 21 are a pocket passer and an all-around athlete.

TPI's Central Texas Top 25 Prospects: 25-21

25. Spencer Otto, QB, Pflugerville Hendrickson One of the best pocket passers in the area, Otto's stock should be going up as he is having a solid senior season. He is completing over 50 percent of his passes for nearly 600 yards and five touchdowns. He throws a good deep ball but like most high school gunslingers, he tends to trust his arm too much and interceptions can be a problem. He currently boasts an offer from Army.

24. Greg Nwoko, RB, Pflugerville Nwoko is a downhill runner in every sense of the word. He uses his wide frame to run over defenders, but had good speed and quickness to avoid tacklers and that is what makes him such a good back. He is the Panthers leading rusher with over 420 yards through four games. Nwoko is currently reporting offers from New Mexico and UTEP.

23. Troy Vital, RB, Copperas Cove A unknown commodity heading into the season, Vital has been as good as advertised as he is one of the key cogs in an explosive Bulldawgs offense. Like many high school backs, Vital likes to bounce plays to the outside, but he has the speed to turn those runs into big gains. Vital has rushed for over 600 yards this season and has committed to Houston.

22. Chris Young, DB, Austin High With the Maroons having been hit by the injury bug, Young has been a big reason why their offense has kept on chugging. His versatility is huge because he can play receiver, running back, and lineup under center and take direct snaps at quarterback. He might actually be quicker than he is fast, but it looks like his future is at cornerback. He has reportedly picked up an offer from Purdue.

21. Patrick Kurunwune, RB, Austin Anderson One of the many Central Texas prospects that has already committed to the school of his choice with his pledge to Duke, Kurunwune has helped the Trojans get off to a hot start. He had 177 yards and four touchdowns in a season opening win over McCallum.
