When you are 6’0 and 220 pounds, most people see you as one type of tailback, but Skyline (Sammamish,Wa.) RB Rashaad Boddie definitely doesn’t see him self as a one-dimensional runner.
“I’m a big back, but I can do more than just run you over,” Boddie told Northwest Elite Index after a recent event. “I feel like my lateral movement is really good and it’s something I have really focused on, so I can make you miss or I can be physical and run between the tackles. I like doing both.”
During a very good sophomore season, Boddie rushed for a little over 1,000 yards and 20 scores while helping to lead the Spartans to a 6-4 season. That productivity to go along with his size and athleticism has led five schools to extend him offers.
“I have five offers right now,” Boddie said. “I already had offers from Idaho, Utah, Boise State and Oregon State and New Mexico just offered me (last Friday).
“As far as schools that have talked to me, I have gotten stuff from and been in contact with Wyoming, Nevada and Utah State.”
Boddie took part in the Northwest Elite camp at Lynnwood High School last Friday and he came away with MVP honors at the running back spot. He’s unsure of which other programs he will visit this spring, but two he has in mind are schools that have offered.
“Since they’ve offered me and since it’s just a four-hour drive from my house, I’m thinking about visiting Oregon State just to check things out,” Boddie noted. “I’ve been over to Boise State for their Junior Day and that was fun. I might head over there again, but I’m not really sure. A lot will depend on how my schedule works out this summer.”
Boddie said he plans to take at least a couple of official visits this fall before he makes a decision on where he will wind up, but he said he’d like to commit to a school by the end of October.
