Fresh off an appearance on Over the Middle with Jeremy Crabtree, Jason Jewell of 247sports.com joined Chris Harris during halftime of Pinnacle’s thrilling 34-33 victory over Liberty to spotlight the Top 5 High School Football Recruits in Arizona.
1. Spencer Rattler – Pinnacle
Is he a pocket passer? Yeah, but he can also move. He has a thousand yards rushing in his career. His completion percentage is over 70% this year. His touchdown to interception ratio is 19/3 right now. He’s easily the top prospect in the state.
2. Kelee Ringo – Saguaro
He kind of reminds me of Christian Kirk. Smith is a guy that every time he touches the ball he’s a threat to score. He plays receiver now.
I think he could actually be a very good defensive back. He’s committed to the Longhorns as a wide receiver and I think he’s a big impact type player.
4. Bijan Robinson – Salpointe Catholic
5. Jack Miller – Chaparral
Committed: Ohio State
Besides the notable stars, Jewell highlighted five players that have been overlooked so far in the national recruiting trail.
1. Kieran Clark – Centennial
Kieran Clark is a corner at Centennial High School. He does have Division 1 offers. He has BYU. He has Nevada and even Wyoming. But I think this kid is a Power 5 type player. He’s big enough. He’s six feet tall. He’s documented very fast track times. I really like him.
2. Trevor Kauer – Campo Verde
3 & 4. Eliye and J.J. Hill – Marcos De Niza
Neither of them have scholarship offers. We know the game is won and lost in the trenches and these guys are fantastic football players.
5. Mario Padilla – Salpointe Catholic
One of the best all around football players in the state regardless of position. He plays running back, corner. I really, really like him a lot.
