Still Available - JUCO RBs

Here is a look at some of the top JUCO tailbacks that are still available and looking for a place to play this fall including East Mississippi's Preston Baker who helped lead the Lions to an NJCAA National Championship...

East Mississippi RB Preston Baker (5-10, 215) - Baker led the national champs in rushing with 615 yards and 10 touchdowns. He’s still looking for a place to play in 2015 and he will have three years to play two wherever he winds up.

Moorpark RB Raekeal Beasley (5-7, 165) - Very quick and great in space. Beasley can make you miss and he’s got enough burst to break things outside when necessary. Beasley was a backup in 2013, but took over the reins of the Raider rushing attack this season, finishing with 672 yards and three touchdowns on 128 carries. Beasley is also a very good receiver, totaling 44 receptions, good for second best on the team, for 423 yards and another score.

Moorpark RB Kyle Jean (5-9, 172) - Jean was a starter in 2013, but he played a backup role this past fall, finishing with just 15 carries for 78 yards. He did manage to haul in 19 receptions for 254 yards as a receiver as well.

Butler RB Chris Carson (6-1, 210) (Spring grad) - Carson remains committed to Georgia, but he’s still got plenty of schools after him and he recently received his ninth offer from Oklahoma State. As a sophomore this past season, Carson rushed for nearly 1,000 yards and nine scores. He also was a good received out of the backfield when called upon, hauling in 12 receptions for 63 yards and two more scores.

Santa Barbara RB Orion Prescott (5-8, 180) - Prescott was a nice “change of pace” back for the Vaqueros in 2014, carrying the ball 73 times for 282 yards and four touchdowns while hauling in 10 receptions for 71 yards and another score. He’s ready to leave right now with two years to play two starting in 2015.

Santa Barbara RB Sage Ritchie (5-9, 205) - The sophomore got limited touches during the season, toting the rock just 13 times for 74 yards. He’s a physical runner with a good burst. Can leave right away with three years to play two starting in 2015.

College of the Siskiyous RB (6-1, 210) Aaron Williams - Williams sat out the 2014 season waiting to find an opportunity and he’s ready to go now. He’s a hard-running tailback who makes most of his yards between the tackles, but he can break things outside if necessary. Williams will have two years to play two starting in the fall.

El Camino RB Kendell Sparks (5-8, 175) - Sparks led the Warriors with 669 yards rushing and five touchdowns on the ground. Sparks is also a very good receiver, finishing second on the team with 30 receptions for 191 yards. Sparks can sign right away and he will have three years to play two starting this fall.
