RB Ibrahim Halsey 5-10 190 4.5 Elizabeth, New Jersey
I've seen more film on prospects in 2001 than I have the past five years. There have been several prospects that I thought highly of and it seems everyone puts together an awesome highlight tape.
Ibrahim Halsey is a special athlete who jumps out and screams difference maker. Halsey is in the same class as New York's, Damien Rhodes and Virginia's, Thomas Clayton.
Halsey has deceptive speed, power and excellent hands. Ibrahim is elusive and has a Marshall Faulk type knack of making big plays. He's not the biggest or fastest prospect I've seen but he gets the job done.
What makes Halsey a special recruit is his versatility. He has the ability to play running back but he could also play cornerback..
Ibrahim is a four-year varsity starter. He started at safety his freshman year, was moved to wide receiver his sophomore year and he put up monster numbers a junior running back.
In 2000, Halsey had 2,400 total yards and 24 touchdowns. This year Ibrahim has rushed for 1,110 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also has five receiving touchdowns.
Halsey leads his Elizabeth squad into the play-offs this weekend with an 8-0 record and a 14 national ranking.
Has Halsey started to think about recruiting?
"Right now I have nine solid schools." Halsey said. "I'm looking at Georgia, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Northwestern, Illinois and Virginia.
I have visits set up at Georgia (12-7), Georgia Tech (1-11), Wisconsin (12-14) and Notre Dame (1-14).
I'm going to be looking for a stable coaching staff. I would like the piece of mind knowing that the coaches that recruit me will still be at the school when I graduate.
A good education is obviously important. I would like a good social environment. For example, I visited Syracuse and Penn State and I knew that I wouldn't fit in there. I'm from the city, so I like having a lot of things to do.
