We’ve checked out the new names on Stanford Football’s ‘22 offensive tackle board as well as interior offensive line and quarterbacks, wide receivers, and today we move on to running backs. The Cardinal is set for a modest haul in ‘21 at wide receiver and running back due to the simple fact that they are only taking one player at each position in the class. That’s going to change in the ‘22 class and the current offers at those positions reflect it. Stanford’s current wide receiver corps is in very good shape but things change fast in college football, and by the time the ‘22 class is ready to arrive at college it’s going to be time to turn that room over. The running back room is very similar. Pups like Austin Jones and Nathaniel Peat, both of whom are expected to play big roles this season (whenever “this” season happens), are not guaranteed to be playing call the fall of ‘22. So with that in mind, let’s move on to the newest peeps on the Cardinal’s running back radar.
Running back offer Ashton Hayes is the headliner here. The three-star out of Reno (NV) Damonte Ranch is the second recent offer out of The Biggest Little City In The World from the Cardinal. Stanford has also offered linebacker and Stanford Baseball Commit Robby Snelling. Hayes has picked up offers from Hawaii, San Diego State, Oregon State, and Utah. Of his Cardinal offer, Hayes told 247’s Brandon Huffman ““It was a surreal feeling because Stanford is a high-stature school, good in academics and football,” said Hayes. “They’ve had a lot of success and to be able to have the opportunity is incredible.” Hayes said the Cardinal offered him as an all-purpose back. “They offered me for all-purpose, where they’d spread me out as a receiver or slot but then I’d spend most of my time as a running back,” said Hayes.
Omarion Hampton is one of two four-stars to debut on the ‘22 radar. The 6’0” 215-pounder out of Clayton (NC) Cleveland has LSU, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Wake Forest, and Old Dominion as his most recent offers. Hampton is the #127 overall player in the 247Sports rankings. Stanford has been able to pull Bryce Love and Justus Woods out of The Tar Heel State while coming up short in the Will Shipley Sweepstakes in the ‘21 cycle.
Jadarian Price is a four-star out of Denison (TX) Denison and Midlands Recruiting Expert Gabe Brooks scouts him thusly: “Not a tall prospect, but plenty of frame space to continue adding bulk. Long-striding gait, especially relative to size. Shows impressive agility and quick-footedness in the hole. Regularly makes defenders miss in close quarters. Encouraging penchant for turning upfield instead of bouncing everything. Flashes good initial burst and above-average long speed, but can still improve top end. Will need to continue adding bulk to maximize strength. Very limited pass-catching opportunities. High-major talent long-term and could be one of the nation’s top 2022 running back prospects.” Price’s most recent offers include Utah, Texas Tech, Auburn, Missouri, and Arizona State. He also has a Pac-12 offer from USC.
Djouvensky Schlenbaker is a three-star out of Bellington (WA) Squalicum. Schlenbaker already has a Level Eight Crystal Ball pick in from 247’s Ryland Spencer, and he has additional Pac-12 offers from Cal and Washington State. Braylon Ray Harvey is out of Prosper (TX) Prosper. The 5’11” 170-pounder joins 5’8” 200-pound Zavion Woodard out of Owings Mills (MD) New Town High School in rounding out the new running back names.
