Talented RB Likes UM

This talented out-of-state running back is listing Miami among his early favorites.

If UM is recruiting him, I think it's probably as a fullback. I look forward to talking to him next month.

At 6-foot-1 and 218 pounds, Moon Township (Pa) running back Austin Sykes will be among the state's top prospects at his position this season. As a junior, he rushed for 1,369 yards and 20 touchdowns and also brought in eight receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown. With 4.55 speed, Sykes also bench presses 275 pounds. On a questionnaire, he said his early favorites are Michigan, Michigan State, Florida State, Miami, Pittsburgh, and Syracuse. Several schools have stopped by his school this month, but he has not yet received any scholarship offers.
