James Caraway, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound cornerback from Highland Park (KS) High School, runs a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash, which is drawing interest from colleges.
"On a good day I run a 4.37," Caraway said. "My slowest day is like a 4.45."
His cousin, Michael Bennett, a running back for the Kansas City Chiefs, also is known for his speed.
Caraway's speed has attracted Kansas State, a program he is familiar with.
"I talked to Kansas State a couple of times," Caraway said. "I was supposed to go down there to meet a few coaches and talk to a few people and I am going to do that sometime soon."
Caraway, who holds a 3.3 GPA and a 21 on the ACT, is expected to attend camps this summer at Kansas State and Kansas.
"I like K-State because I have been there a lot and I know their players and their campus," Caraway said. "And KU is closer to home."
Although Caraway does not currently hold any offers, he is looking forward to making his mark at the Scout.com Combine in Kansas City on May 14.
"I am very excited," Caraway said. "It will be my day to show out and turn some heads."
Factors for the speedster include: "Location, I'm not worried about playing time, coaches, and how good a football program is."
Last season, Caraway's Highland Park team had a disappointing season finishing 1-8 on the year.
"It was a struggle because we didn't have leaders on the team and we were going into games unprepared," said Caraway, who played running back, cornerback, punt returner, and kick returner.
This year Caraway, known for his hard work in the weight room, wants to turn things around
"I am steppting up to be THE leader," he said. "I want to lead us to the state playoffs. I feel comfortable as the leader and I am good at the leadership position."
This spring Caraway is participating in track where he competes in the 100-meter dash, 4x100 relay, long jump, high jump, and triple jump.
He runs an 11.00 in the 100-meter dash and his 6-foot-2 mark in the high jump is one of the state's best.
"I enjoy track a lot because it helps me get faster for football."
