Class of 2016 4-Star running back Sean McGrew (5'8/175) of St. John Bosco, a Scout Top 50 member, helped his team get off to a fast start as the Braves traveled to Hawaii to take on St. Louis. McGrew ran for over 2,000 yards as a sophomore and the speedster may have been able to get half of that against St. Louis last Friday in a 63-14 win.
McGrew was seemingly used like an ace in the hole as the Braves worked on different aspects of their offense, including their short passing game. It's a nice weapon when a team can run a draw play on 3rd and 15 and have confidence in making the down and distance (they did).
McGrew had a light work load with only 14 carries, but he still managed 179 yards and three touchdowns. With a best time of 10.64 in the 100 meters in May, McGrew has legit speed, and he routinely outruns angles when he gets the edge. What's surprising for a track guy though is his balance and lateral quickness. He can make a guy miss or spin out of a tackle, and once he has the corner... he's gone.
McGrew already has scholarship offers from the likes of UCLA, Cal, Arizona State, and Washington among others.
