TOP 2022 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top 2022 football recruits at College Football Today features Top 2022 DE recruit Rope Scott ranked 31st overall in the Top 2022 D-Line recruit rankings, which are being broken up into DT's, DE's & Hybrids next re-rank. Scott stands 6'2,230 and is one of the quickest DE recruits coming off the edge, as he ran a confirmed 4.68,40 yard dash last off-season. Rope has drawn much interest out of the Big 12, SEC, Mountain West & Conference USA, as he has the potential to become the next J.J Watt. In his Sophomore year Game 5 footage below, you will see why Rope is one of the most feared rising 2022 defensive end recruits in the Mid-West, as he terrorizes opponents backfields with a brilliant display of power moves, quickness and raw athletic ability. He also imposes his will on defensive linemen, as an OT and is extremely quick in getting to the second level of the defense.
TOP 2022 D-LINE RECRUITS
Top 2022 D-Line recruits should be versatile on the defensive front, as there are many advanced defensive schemes in the world of College Football Today. Starting out the tape below, Rope shows off his pass blocking capabilities on the O-Line and on the second play is lined up as a 4-3 defensive tackle. Scott completely destroys the O-Linemen attempting to block him and devours the ball carrier for no gain. You will see him lined up at left offensive tackle at 1:10 into his game 3 highlight's and once again unearths his opponent for a vicious pancake block. Scott does an excellent job at turning the defensive linemen per play design, which opens up enormous running lanes for Washington's Ball Carriers.
TOP 2022 DE RECRUITS
What makes Rope Scott one of the Top 2022 DE recruits in College Football Today, can be seen more on the third play in his Millwood highlight's below. Rope is able to use his hands masterfully and gains leverage over the much bigger OT, while using his brute strength and quickness to apply pressure on the QB. The quarterback wisely steps up in the pocket and Rope shows more of his high motor by tallying the QB sack. Does Rope have a long way to go before becoming a first ballot NFL Hall of Fame inductee like J.J Watt? Yes, but he certainly possesses the overall athletics, size and game film to one day evolve into a dynamic athlete like the Houston Texans perennial All-Pro J.J. Watt.
TOP DEFENSIVE END RECRUITS
JJ Watt was not on any top defensive end recruits list coming out of high school and was rated a 2-Star recruit by Rivals & 247 Sports. Looking back, that means that Rivals actually had me rated higher than J.J Watt as a 3 Star Kicker, which absolutely makes no sense. To go even further, ESPN football recruiting had him graded out a 63, as the #172 ranked defensive end in his class. Which makes you wonder what the #171 other recruits ended up doing in front of him? Or not, because from what I have observed, "The cream will always rise to the top". Watt was able to take his training, film study and game to entirely new level from his high school playing days, which Top 2022 DE recruit Rope Scott fully has the capabilities to do.

TOP 2021 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top 2021 football recruits at College Football Today features Texas All-State 2nd Team Utility, All Johnson County 1st Team RB, 4A All District RB & 4A All District LB selection Kolby Bartlett out of Godley HS in Texas, who is currently ranked 15th in the nation in the 2021 RB recruit rankings. Bartlett had a tremendous season on both sides of the football, while being able to rush for 1,405 yards and also had 231 yards receiving with 15 total touchdowns on the 2019 season. Even though he carried most of the offensive workload, Kolby's defensive numbers did not suffer, as he was able to tally 84 total tackles on the 2019 season. Bartlett should arguably be ranked on our Top 2021 ATH recruit rankings, as he is more of an iron man rather than a "Utility Player" in the world of College Football Today. The main conundrum of what Kolby Bartlett could be at the next level at the RB position, can be solved by watching the reflection of the former Patriots running back Danny Woodhead. Watch Kolby Bartlett's 2019 season highlight's at the running back position and read more about how Kolby could transition into a similar role as Woodhead in the world of College Football Today.
TOP 2021 RUNNING BACKS
Top 2021 running backs at College Football Today is loaded with RB recruits who can strike for a long score from anywhere on the football field and also features a few traditional ground & pound workhorse type backs. When evaluation Kolby's 2019 season highlight's, he is a mix of both styles of running back and he has extreme burst once he finds his running lane that is paired with superior ball carrier vision. Bartlett is able to start and stop on a dime when weaving through traffic, as he possesses cat-like reflexes when sense making defenders miss. At Around 1 minute into the highlight's above, you will get to see Kolby's "top end" or breakaway speed, as he scampers down the sideline for one of his 15 touchdowns on the season. The All-State Texas football recruit is a master at finding the cut back lane and keeping defenders off balance in his high-octane running style. After grinding out a red-zone touchdown, Kolby can once again be seen getting to the edge for a 50+ yard touchdown run and once again is able to show off his thoroughbred speed, as he leaves defenders in the dust. Bartlett is arguably one of the quickest running backs I have seen at identifying the running lane and is at the second and third level of the defense in the blink of an eye. When you combine his exhilarating quickness, speed and power with his innate ability to make defenders miss, you are looking at a young man who can take complete control of a football game.
TOP FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Danny Woodhead was never on any top football recruits list coming out of North Platte, Nebraska and played 10 season in the National Football League. Of course, his profile was added by Rivals & 247 Sports after he was drafted into the NFL, but he had one offer from Chadron St and he sure did make the most of it. Standing 5'8 and about 185 pounds, Danny Woodhead broke several NCAA rushing records, including the single season rushing & All-Time NCAA rushing records. He won the Harlon Hill Trophy for D2 football's Player of The Year in 2006 and 2007, which made him the 3rd player ever to accomplish this honor in back to back seasons. Woodhead held the NCAA Football (All Divisions) rushing record until it was broken in 2008 by D3 Mount Union running back Nate Kmic. To put what Danny did into perspective, Barry Sanders was the only running back to account for more all-purpose yards than Woodhead's 3,159 yards in his 1988 Heisman Trophy run at Oklahoma St. If you cannot see the scary resemblance in Kolby Bartlett's skill-set at the running back position to Danny Woodhead, watch his Chadron St higlight's below and see what I am talking about.
TOP 2021 RB RECRUIT
Top 2021 RB recruit Kolby Bartlett could become Woodhead 2.0, if given the chance to be a team's primary running back at the next level. He also is a total package recruit and football player, as a member of National Honors Society Kolby is ranked 6th overall in his class at Godley HS and also excels at the LB position. Danny made a huge impact on special teams at the NFL level, as football geniuses like Bill Belichick look for cerebral all-around football players who are highly adaptable week to week. Much like Woodhead, Kolby is a tackling machine, but as a defensive linebacker who could easily transition into a strong safety role in the world of College Football Today. Check out Kolby's Hudl and Scout Trout Elite Top 2021 RB recruit profile by clicking the boxes below to learn more about our 136th ranked overall 2021 football recruit at College Football Today.

23. North Carolina Tar Heels
The North Carolina Tar Heels football program hired legendary Head Coach Mack Brown to once again rebuilt the Tar Heels, as he did from 1988-1997. After two 1-10 seasons, Coach Brown made winning an expectation moving the Tar-Heels football program into the 90's, as he reeled off 8 winning seasons in a row before departing to turn Texas into a perennial Big 12 powerhouse. In Coach Brown's first season back with the Tar Heels, they were 7-6 with a completely new coaching staff besides Coach Thigpen. Sam Howell was able to win our College Football Today Freshmen of The Year Award and was rated the #2 overall QB recruit in the 2019 recruiting class with a 9.505 S.T.E.P rating, as he was able to throw for 3,641 yards and 38 touchdowns, while only tossing 7 interceptions on the 2019 season. He finished the season with a 160.2 QB rating and was the most productive freshmen in FBS college football. Sam is a big reason the Tar Heels start out in our preseason top 25 at College Football Today and will be in Heisman talks in 2020 or 2021. Oh, and there was that game against Clemson (21-20)!

Football recruiting services like Go Big, NCSA, Captain U, BeRecruited, National Prospect I.D & many others are well-known for placing ads all over the internet to try and sell you a dream. They provide data that is untruthful, as to who is interested or has viewed a recruits profile & this is not to be used for recruit S.T.E.P ratings data. I know this from responses we have gotten from college coaches that supposedly were interested in a recruit on many of these platforms and none personally reached out from those programs in years past. Most of these services also contract with specific college programs that need to fill roster spots at the D2/NAIA/JUCO & D3 levels. 99% of college coaches recruiting departments are searching for top football recruits in every class online and going by word of mouth and trusted sources.
