With a release of PrepRedzoneMN’s Preseason All-State Offensive and Defensive teams for class 4A and the follow-up 2022 article on the standout preps not named All-State, we’ve covered a ton of standout AAAA ballers. However, there are still some 2021s you need to know. Just because an athlete wasn’t named to a certain team or given a certain honor doesn’t mean they aren’t a stud, and all these athletes listed can make a significant impact for a college football program. Let’s get to know some of these rising seniors that are set to make some waves in MN’s 4A and check out the watchlist of some more 2021 recruits. Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy!
