Running backs are a crucial part of any offense and can be relied upon heavily in some high school schemes. This position can change the course of the game on just one play by taking a carry or pass 80 yards to the endzone. Some RBs are more dynamic than others because of their speed or ability to get yards after contact. These are some of the running backs with the most impressive big play ability in the 2021 class:

Neel is a patient runner that waits for blocks to develop and is excellent at reading the flow of the defense of any given play. He has great lateral quickness, while also displaying the ability to quickly change direction and accelerate. Neel is a shifty player that can juke defenders out and take the ball the distance. He is best used on outside runs and as a receiver. This RB has 5 offers that include Presbyterian and Dayton.
