If it seems like the feats of ESPN Watch List running back Sony Michel (Plantation, Fla./American Heritage) have been discussed for several years, it is because they have. In 2009, Michel rushed 248 times for 1,825 yards and 18 touchdowns, with seven kickoff returns for 273 and two touchdowns. He earned a 1st team All-Broward County selection, chosen over senior Ethan Grant, a TCU signee. While that does not seem unique, keep in mind Michel was in eighth grade.

As a freshman, Michel had 228 carries for 1,730 yards and 21 touchdowns, and added an 80-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Michel missed his sophomore season with a torn ACL, but returned last fall with 130 carries for 1,264 yards and 18 rushing touchdowns, 18 receptions for 232 yards, and five kickoff returns for 106 yards.

Five schools are on top for Michel, and one of them could get good news from the 5-foot-11, 205-pound tailback soon.
