Three-star running back Darrian Felix revealed his top five schools on Tuesday night with powers from the ACC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC all represented.
The end is near in the recruitment of the nation’s No. 46-ranked running back.
On Tuesday night, Darrian Felix, from Fort Myers, Florida, revealed the top five schools left vying for his commitment, and he included powers from the ACC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC.
In alphabetic order, Felix’s top five includes Clemson, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oregon and Tennessee.
Felix released a brief statement regarding his final five schools.
“I want to say thank you to all the schools that offered me a scholarship, but, with that being said, here’s my top five.”
Ranked as the No. 8 halfback in the Sunshine State, and measuring 5-foot-11, 185 pounds, Felix has the kind of cutback ability that makes him a home run threat. If a defense over-pursues and provides a bail-out lane, he’ll take it. And he has the kind of extra gear to leave linebackers and defensive backs in his dust.
He isn’t a reliable pass blocker, but Felix does provide some pass catching ability out of the backfield and when lined up in the slot.
While Willie Taggart’s Ducks appear to be the frontrunner at the moment, Felix is set to take an official visit to Clemson on Jan. 13. He’ll take another to Nebraska the following week.
Felix also officially visited North Carolina on Dec. 2, a week before the dead period set in. His official visit to Tennessee came on Nov. 12 when the Volunteers beat Kentucky, 49-36. Felix also spent an official visit in Eugene on Oct. 7, the day before Oregon fell to Washington, 70-21 – albeit, that was under the Mark Helfrich regime.
