In the past week, Garces running back Sheldon Croney has come home to two scholarship offers from Colorado State and Boise State of the Mountain West Conference.
Judging by the way he's played this season, plus the interest he's been receiving, Cali Gold Mine predicts the scholarships will soon stack up.
Croney is already built like a grown man at 6-foot-1, 215-pounds. He runs the ball like a college football running back with his power, vision and, for a guy that big, he's got wicked straight line speed and sometimes goes untouched to the end zone.
Croney, a 2015 prospect, has a versatile running style for a big back. He has the straight line speed, he can cutback, he can pummel arm tackles and, he's even capable of hurdling over defenders.
He can continue to work on developing his speed. I also did catch him on a couple of occasions holding the football away from his body, which can lead to possible fumbles. He can also look to consistently hold the ball close to him.
In the end, though, this could be the most highly recruited prospect in Kern County real soon. He's also a basketball star for the Rams and helped lead them to a CIF Central Section title game run during the 2012-13 season.
