Ranier Rackley of Andrew Jackson High School was one of the top running back prospects I saw at any of TheInsiders/MSL Combines that I went to this year. He has had to play behind some very talented players including his cousin Leon Washington, but this is his year to shine.
"I've gotten offers from UCF, North Carolina, Florida, and Iowa," said
Rackley. "Clemson, Syracuse, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, USF, and Nebraska are
all recruiting me hard too. A lot of those schools came by the school to see me
in our last week."
With Leon Washington being his cousin from the same school, does that give the
Noles an edge? Well the Gators have an ace in the hole as well.
"Florida and Florida State were my favorite schools growing up. I'm cousins with Dee Webb too.
Florida, Clemson, Florida State, Maryland, Iowa, and North Carolina are my
favorites right now."
What does Rackley like about some of the other schools recruiting him?
"With Clemson, they are showing a lot of interest, and I enjoy talking with
the coaches recruiting me. I think Maryland is an up and coming program, and the
coaches are good to talk to. I like Iowa and the Big 10, and it's also a
prestigious University. My dad lives in North Carolina, and they are recruiting
me the hardest."
Rackley plans on attending college camps at UCF, Florida, and Florida State this
Gators or Noles?
