Rivals Top High School Football Prospects from the Class of 2035

Rivals Top High School Football Prospects from the Class of 2035

National high school recruiting services like Rivals.com release lists every fall that rank the top football players in their graduating class, including those just completing their freshman year of high school, based on current skill level, physical profile, and future potential at the collegiate and professional levels.



Our team of evaluators at Rivals.com has spent the summer traveling all over the country, combing through the best talent in the class of 2035 and one thing is for certain - this group is shaping up to be one of the best we’ll see in some time. Here are some of the names you’ll want to keep an eye on over the next 13 years. 

Mario Davis

Hometown: Elmhurst, IL
School: Conrad Fischer Elementary
Position: ATH/RB
Profile: Davis highlights an overall developing 2035 group that has a ton of potential and promise. At just age five, Davis has already separated himself as the nation’s top Athlete prospect in the class of 2035 with his elite agility and sideline-to-sideline speed, both of which he has showcased in Red Rover games during afternoon recess.

Foster Carrillo 

Hometown: Johnson City, TX
School: Lyndon B Johnson Elementary
Position: DB
Profile: Carillo has the size and frame to be one of the next great lengthy defensive backs to come out of the Lone Star state. On top of being taller than the other boys in his class, Carillo has a ballhawk mentality for finding things (as evidenced by his ability to dominate hide and seek games on the playground) which will translate well at the next level.

Cliff “Cliffy” Blanchard

Hometown: Miami, FL
School: Sunset Elementary School  
Position: QB
Profile: “Cliffy” has a smaller frame than you’d like to see for a quarterback at his age, but the intangibles are there. His natural arm strength developed from picking up and throwing rocks at every given opportunity will translate well to the gridiron once he gets to high school.

Morton Norris

Hometown: Racine, WI
School: Fratt Elementary 
Position: OL
Profile: Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, a high-grade offensive lineman from the state of Wisconsin. Norris reportedly put on extra weight this off-season by eating Snack Packs for dinner every night, much to his parent’s chagrin. One thing is for sure - he’ll have plenty of pudding wherever he decides to play his college ball in 2035.

Emery Stephenson

Hometown: Thousand Oaks, CA
School: Westlake Montessori School
Position: K
Profile: Stephenson appears to be headed for the top kicker ranking in the Class of 2035, showing off some precision accuracy early last year when he managed to kick every single pre-school teacher in the shins prior to his graduation in May. 

Junior Weber

Hometown: Marietta, GA
School: Bells Ferry Elementary School
Position: OLB
Profile: Weber grades out as the top linebacker in the class, having been sent to the principal’s office a record four times in one week for tackling his classmates out on the blacktop. Whoever ends up with this bruiser will want to invest in some ibuprofen because Weber likes to bring the pain.      

Abel Jacobs

Hometown: Canton, OH
School: Washington Elementary School
Position: TE
Profile: Long-limbed and born just five years ago in the birthplace of professional football, Jacobs is our bet to be the “lock” of this class. His soft hands and the fact his parents already signed him up for Pee Wee Football put him ahead of other tight ends in the 2035 class right now.

Jamar Peterson

Hometown: Baton Rouge, LA
School: Melrose Elementary School
Position: WR
Profile: Speed. Demon. Those are the two words other parents use most to describe Peterson, whose straight-line agility is often seen on field trips when he’s running away from a chaperone.
