Overview

This an extremely talented and deep group. There are several players left out of the top 20 that could easily be in. There are also some very good young players and Tucson has a ton of quality players this cycle.

Riser

Josh Chadwick – Big and powerful back that I expect a huge senior season from.

Small School Sensation

Brandon Long – River Valley – All he did was rush for 2,200 yards and 32 TDs last year.

Sleeper

Tyrek Cross – Mountain Pointe- Coach Vaughan is high in this out of state move in. Mt. Pointe is loaded in the backfield with two other proven backs though.
