If you looking for an under the radar running back then Todd Macon (St. Petersburg, Fla./Admiral Farragut Academy) is your guy. He has one small school offer thus far.

"Ball State offered him but then they filled up," said Chris Miller, Admiral Farragut's coach. "Liberty now is his offer. We are talking to some other schools like Memphis, Bowling Green and Louisville."

Macon is a bigger back at 5-foot-10 and 200-pounds. And he's a guy that just keeps coming at you.

"This kid is a bowling ball," Miller said. "He is terrific between the tackles. Todd is the type of back that gets stronger and stronger as the game goes on. It's like he will get four yards a pop in the first half and then in the second half he will rip off 10-12 yards gains. I hate to give this analogy but he's a lot like Maurice Jones-Drew. Defenders just bounce off of him. He's not a burner but he gets it done."

Macon joins a loaded backfield with Cortavious Givens and Napoleon Maxwell. They are both juniors.
