Emmitt Raleigh RB - Spring-Westfield


I attended a Texas HS playoff game on Saturday between Spring-Westfield and Austin-Bowie. Westfield blew Bowie away. By far the best athlete on the field was #34 Emmitt Raleigh of Westfield. They are primarily a running team and are 13-0. I couldn't even find this kid on Rivals. He is class of 2013. He plays both sides of the ball but primarily at RB where he was unstoppable. Max Preps lists him at 5'11" 188 lbs, but he looks more like about 6'2" 220 on the field. He is a power back with moves. Check out these links:

I don't know how these guys stay under the radar. LSU coaches need to check this guy out. Would I take him over Fournette? Absolutely not! But it sounds to me like Fournette could become another recruiting disappointment for LSU.

Believe me, there is no way he is 5'11" 188 lbs. He looked big on a team with giants. Those measurements must be from last year. He is one of those backs with deceptive speed. He had one long run in the game. Once he broke free, no one even came close to catching him. No, he is does not likely have 4.3 speed, but he looks maybe 4.5.

What info suggest LF is leaning anywhere. I am more worried about Trey Quinn going to TAM.

Because he is down to Alabama and LSU. If he was going to LSU, he wouldn't keep the coaches hanging. This situation sounds a lot like what happened with Landon Collins. These guys don't want to commit to Alabama early and face the ire of local LSU fans. And Fournette's coach is in the tank for Saban!
