The rich keep getting richer. Alabama is headed to the College Football Playoff with an undefeated record and the No. 1 seed. The Tide are also closing in on the No. 1 recruiting class in 2021. That quest got more likely on Wednesday night when Camar Wheaton, the No. 26 overall player and No. 2 overall running back in this season's recruiting cycle, committed to Alabama over Oklahoma and others.
Wheaton is a 5-foot-11, 190-pounder from Lakeview Centennial High School in Garland, Texas. The five-star prospect has 3,731 rushing yards and 48 rushing touchdowns during his four-year high school football career.
Gabe Brooks, midland regional recruiting analyst for 247Sports, filed this scouting report and compared Wheaton to Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Ronald Jones II.
"Looks every bit of listed size with prototypical running back build," Brooks wrote. "Will easily eclipse 200-pound plateau and should naturally maintain athleticism at heavier weight. Big-play back with outstanding top-end speed verified in track environment (10.6's as a sophomore).
