Vikings' Limar attracts Nat'l attention
Star RB has pocketed at least eleven major college scholarship offers
Jayden Limar’s Instagram, if your are lucky enough to follow it, reads like a travel blog for fans of major college football programs. One week he’s in College Station trying on Aggies gear. The next? you can find him in South Central Los Angeles, in the storied uniform of the Southern California Trojans.
Just two weeks ago, Limar met with the one and only Jim Harbaugh during a visit to Ann Arbor, where Limar watched the Wolverines thump the UW Huskies. The same Huskies that Limar had visited on Montlake the week before (notably, UW head coach Jimmy Lake was on hand as Lake Stevens opened the season with a win over top ranked O’Dea in Seattle, keeping a close eye on Limar no doubt).
The Viking junior running back is the biggest collegiate prospect to bless Lake Stevens Stadium since Skinny Eason took off for the Georgia Bulldogs. Limar is currently ranked the 7th overall running back nationally in the Class of 2023, per recruiting site Scout.com. In total, Limar holds at least 11 high major offers including paperwork from Notre Dame, Oregon, UW, Michigan, Texas A&M and others. Limar rushed for 98 yards and a TD in the Vikes’ season opening victory.
Limar isn’t the only Viking attracting significant scholarship interest. Senior wideout/safety Drew Carter holds at least five offers including an offer from the Air Force Academy. Additionally, recruiting gurus say Lake seniors Grayson Murren (QB) and Trayce Hanks (WR/CB) can expect increasing interest as the season progresses. Hanks opened the season in eye-catching fashion, breaking off two 70-yard touchdowns against O’Dea while also contributing a key interception and a touchdown-saving tackle in which he tracked down O’Dea’s five star running back Jason Brown from behind, exhibiting a mix of speed and hustle that made Jimmy Lake grab for a roster.
