Can't Miss Athletes on the NFHS Network

Posted by Jacob Plunkett on 10/20/16 4:58 PM

We get to witness some incredibly talented athletes here at the NFHS Network - but let's take a look at a few of the highest-rated football players that will be featured on our broadcasts this upcoming weekend.

*All rankings are according to 247sports

Najee Harris - Antioch High School (Antioch, CA)

This beast of a running back is listed as the #1 player in the country for the class of 2017. Nick Saban looooves big, bruising backs, so it makes sense that the 6'3" 226 lbs workhorse is committed to Bama. If you're a fan of the Crimson Tide, you should definitely check out Harris - he could soon join the ranks of Ingram, Richardson, Lacy, Yeldon, Henry, etc.

Watch Antioch vs. Deer Valley


Tee Higgins - Oak Ridge High School (Oak Ridge, TN)

The Clemson Tigers commit is currently listed as the 4th best WR in the country for the class of 2017, and the 17th best player overall. At 6'4.5" 188 lbs, he's got the elite size and speed to be a gamechanger on the outside. Dabo has to be excited to get this guy on campus and on the field in Death Valley.

Watch Oakridge vs. Webb


Dylan McCaffrey - Valor Christian High School (Highlands Ranch, CO)

I'm sure Dylan is tired of being referred to as "Christian McCaffrey's brother," but he won't have to worry about that for much longer. The Senior quarterback is ranked as the 4th best Pro-style QB in the country, and the 47th best player overall. He's committed to Michigan, and Harbaugh is a wiz with young QBs. It won't be long before Dylan is turning just as many heads as his older brother.

Watch ALL of these top performers this Friday, because before long you'll be watching them on Saturdays.
