There are hotbeds for high school football prospects in the country. Off the top of your head you can name a few like Florida, Texas and California. No matter how long I let you think about it, you won’t ever mention Utah but that doesn’t mean there aren’t good prospects there.
Case in point, 2020 defensive back Keilen Washington from Dixie High School. For starters, his GridironStuds profile says he runs a 4.37 forty. Now we all know that high school 40 times are to be taken with the utmost grain of salt. The good news for Washington is that he moves fast enough on film for you to believe it. Washington patrols his corner position for Dixie HS in addition to handling return duties for the team. It is in the return game where he show off his speed. His film will reveal his ability to see a gap in the coverage and hit it with passion launching him through and onto the other side in short order. When no hole is present, Washington can run around a defender as good as anyone else. Schools love defensive backs that can contribute on special teams, especially the return game.
