Jodan Welte tops available FBs

With national signing day (Feb. 2) around the corner, here is a look at the top uncommitted fullbacks.


Jordan Welte (Las Vegas, Nev./Bishop Gorman)

Player rank: NR | Position rank: 4 | Grade: 75 | Stars: 3
Height: 6-0 | Weight: 225 pounds | Evaluation
Minnesota UNLV

Why they want him: A powerful run-blocker who could do the job efficiently at the college level, Welte also has some good ability to run and catch the ball out of the backfield. Also a wrestler, Welte is a good athlete and can make contributions on offense and special teams.

Recruiting update: Minnesota was Welte's only offer, but that came under former coach Tim Brewster. Look for Welte to find a home closer to signing day as schools begin exploring their contingency plans.

Treyvon Daniels (Pine Bluff, Ark./Dollarway)

Player rank: NR | Position rank: 5 | Grade: 75 | Stars: 3
Height: 6-1 | Weight: 240 pounds | Evaluation
Arkansas Ole Miss Arkansas State

Why they want him: Daniels is still much more of a running back than a fullback at this stage and could easily end up playing on defense. He isn't much of a blocker at this stage and will need to be developed.

Recruiting update: Before his senior campaign began Daniels was heavily interested in Ole Miss and Arkansas but no offers have come forward.
