These four guys have been productive players thus far in their HS careers, but may be a little under the radar. As the 2020 season approaches, we anticipate these four players seeing their stock rise over the course of their junior campaigns.

Denim CookDenimCook5'9" | RBSt. Theresa | 2022IL (St. Teresa HS)- Adequate height, solid weight, and a developed frame. Good acceleration off the snap, coupled with good vision in order to see and hit hole. Maintains vision in hole and shows very good ability to cut off the backside of blocks. Good play strength, both lower and upper body to run through arm tackles and traffic at the LOS. He’s a physical runner at all three levels of the defense, and displays good contact balance. Possesses good speed to power transition on the second and third levels. Solid speed, enough speed to be a chunk runner, but not a home run threat. A very promising player who will get a lot of recognition in 2020.

Gabe Hilliard (Carbondale HS)- Adequate height, solid weight, and slender frame. Very good burst and acceleration off the snap in order to get in and out of holes. Good feet and vision, in order to elude trash
