2024 Running backs to know this Fall

April 18, 2022

Staff Writer

We are taking a look at some of the top running back prospects to know in the class of 2024 for this fall.

The class of 2024 is loaded with talent but one that arguably stands out the most is the running back position. There is a long list of talented running backs that we looked at when we did our rankings of the top prospects.

Today we bring you the top prospects to know for this fall. Recruits that have six or fewer offers and that are on the rise and heating up this spring.

Kewan Lacy (24) | 5’11, 192 | RB | Lancaster 

Kewan’s recruiting has blown up and taken off this year with virtually all of his offers coming this year besides one out of his five total. UTSA, UNT, SMU, and Utah are the latest to offer this year for Lacy after a most impressive year rushing for 1352 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns on 135 attempts. Lacy is a one-cut back who can be off to the races after one move and gas everyone to the endzone. Should put up some impressive numbers this coming up the season and be one that you could see his offer numbers skyrocket after his junior season. 

Jaylen Boardley (24) | 6’0, 190 | RB | Pleasant Grove

Jaylen is a four-star rated running back( per 247sports) and surprisingly only has 6 divisions I offer at the moment. We already know Bordley is a big-time playmaker with the football in his hands. A back who shows good strength in his lower body and core that can shed of tackles and run inside the trenches or that has the speed to also break runs off to the outside. Will be a prospect whose recruitment could see a huge boost this fall. 

Jamaal Wiley (24) | 6’1″ 200 | RB | Stafford

Wiley cracked the top ten list for us for a reason. He is a violent strong and physical runner that can plow defenders over and has the speed to take runs to the house anytime he touches the football. Holds offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Houston, SMU, Texas Tech, and UTSA. Look for him to be a strong FBS caliber recruit who could move up aot of boards this fall. 

Trey Roger-Joyner (24) | 5’9″, 170 | RB | Guyer

One who has been flying significantly under the radar is Denton Guyer’s star running back Trey Rogers Joyner who holds multiple interests from schools like Ole Miss, SMU, Texas, and Texas A&M, but surprisingly no offers as of yet. Trey is a running back who can put the moves on defenders in the open field and has the later speed and agility to turn most runs into six points. Keep an eye out for Guyers running back who will help bring a well-balanced attack for that Guyer offense this fall. 

Trey Morris (24) | 5’10” 185 | RB | Cypress Falls

Trey is definitely a player to know who can pick up some ruff and tough yarage, run in between the tackles and do a little bit of it all out of the backfield for Cypress Falls. Contrary to what we first believed during our rankings, Morris has some very good speed that could elevate his status and could be one who could find himself moving up our rankings and possibly other recruiting boards as well this fall. Morris showcases an ability to make some open-field moves and has enough gas in the tank to tag runs all the way to the house. Holds interest from schools like Georgia, LSU, Memphis, Michigan State, and texas to name a few. 

Harry Stewart III (24) | 5’9″ 180 | RB | Centennial

Harry is an electric running back out of the backfield with blazing speed that can make a house call anytime he touches the football. Just picked up his first offer from the University of Baylor and will undoubtedly be picking up a lot more the rest of the year and this coming up season. In 2021 Stewart was named District 5-5A unanimous first-team selection as a sophomore and not to mention in 2020 picked up Offensive Newcomer of the Year as a freshman. 

Xai’Shaun Edwards (24) | 5’9, 175 | RB | Clear Springs 

In 2021 Edwards rushed for nearly 1,500 yards rushing (1,499) 15 touchdowns and was named Texas 24-6A unanimous first-team all-district selection as a sophomore. This year finally picked up his first offer from Missouri and deservingly so for Edwards who is a dangerous offensive weapon with the football in his hands who can also catch out of the backfield,  run in between the tackles, showcase some impressive lateral ability and then be off to the races. Keep an eye on him definitely one that could move up a lot of rankings and recruiting boards this fall.
