Alabama Football Recruitment: Crimson Tide Landed Five Star Back Camar Wheaton Over Oklahoma


The rich get richer. Alabama headed to the playoffs for college with an undefeated record and No. 1 seed. The tide is also closing for recruitment class no. 1 2021. That quest is more likely on Wednesday night when Camar Wheaton, total player no. 26 and total number 2, returns to this season’s recruitment cycle, handed over to Alabama. via Oklahoma and others.

Wheaton weighs 5 feet and 190 pounds from Lakeview Centennial High School in Garland, Texas. In a five-star perspective, he has 3,731 yards and 48 runs in progress during his four-year high school football career.

Gabe Brooks, regional recruitment analyst for the 247Sports region, submitted this scout report and compared Wheaton to Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Ronald Jones II.

“It looks like every bit of the specified size with prototype feedback,” Brooks wrote. “It will easily eclipse a 200-pound plateau and should naturally maintain athleticism at a higher weight. A great player with outstanding top speed tested in a track environment (10.6 as others). Demonstrated improved short range fluidity in the junior season. Shows enough agility in the hole to make an initial move to make the first defender miss.An open field galloper who will not run away from the back.At best as a north-south hole puncher at the speed of breaking open field games but flashing and encouraging the ability of one cut.Respectable production but the numbers are not astounding .Limited ability to catch a pass.Sometimes he is happy to bounce.The agility of the first level is improved, but not lower moves on the second level (although, admittedly, this is usually not necessary.) It descends slightly when changing direction.The great threat at every touch and between is best national prospects for a return to 2021 with a long-term NFL early-round ceiling. “

The search for the best recruiting class in the country continues to pass through Tuscaloosa. Wheaton’s commitment to Crimson Tide extends their lead over the state of Ohio in the country’s No. 1 race. Wheaton is the seventh potential five-star player to either sign or commit to the program during this recruitment cycle.
