One of the most highly coveted 2024 Florida running backs is Chris Wheatley-Humphrey from 2024 Dillard (Fla.) High.

He already has offers from Maryland, Georgia Tech, Liberty, UCF, Louisville and Florida State, among others, in hand. Wheatley-Humphrey also picked up an offer from Syracuse earlier in the week.

“It felt great great getting an offer from Syracuse,” Wheatley-Humphrey said. “It was an accomplishment.”

He’s had plenty of those in the past year. Playing for South Broward (Fla.) High this past season, he rushed for 1,166 yards and added nine total touchdowns.

The 6-foot, 185-pound prospect has also appeared as a defensive back, but he’s being recruited primarily on offense.

“My style of play is like a wear and tear,” Wheatley-Humphrey said. “Throughout the game, I find ways to attack the defense to wear them down. Then, when I see them over-pursue, I break.”

Wheatley-Humphrey said he doesn’t have any early favorites so far, though UCF “is talking to me the most,” at the moment, he said.

“What I’m looking for in a college is that I want to be myself and won’t have to change.”

In that way, Syracuse seemed to fit what he’s looking for.

“Syracuse is a good school, man,” Wheatley-Humphrey said. “It’s not bad at all. I like their running game. I see they like to have fast and quick backs and I fit that mold.”
