Recruiting Watch - Running Back

One of the top RB's in the nation has GT in his "top 5" for next season. That would be Maurice Wells (profile here). This kid is the real deal and led the state of Florida in rushing last season. Also happened to rush for 429 yards in one game, breaking the state record. Right now he is getting offers from anyone and everyone. His high school coach happens to be Adam Geis, son of GT assistant coach Buddy Geis.

Quote from his coach: "He's unbelievable," said Sandalwood Coach Adam Geis. "Teams know what's coming, and they still can't stop him."

Over at the Hive, they said he was at the scrimmage today and Coach Geis took him around and introduced him to everyone on the field after the game.

In my mind the team to look out for might be Ohio State. Saw an unconfirmed report he was born in Ohio and might even have family there. Certainly the big Florida schools will be in the running. But every big Div I-A school is after him, so we will see what happens. No doubt when the star rankings come out, he will probably be a 5-star kid and peg the scale.
