Malik Dear - Murrah RB/WR/QB

Class of 2015

Recruiting: Since the moment he touched the field as a true freshman at Murrah, it was pretty clear Malik Dear would become a major prospect. As he finishes up his sophomore year, he's already become a highly recruited player with interest from schools across the country. Dear says he's not worried much about the recruiting process right now but does say he'd like to stay close to home.

Analysis: Dear is pure speed on the field. Mix that with elusive moves in tight spaces and you get a guy that put up ridiculous stats as a sophomore. This past season Dear ran for 1,530 yds with 24 TD's. He also caught 39 passes for 623 yds and 8 TD's. Dear is also very strong in the upper body and despite playing everywhere on offense, likely projects as a running back at the next level.
