The pool of players to replace the production left when star running back Noah Cain left Guyer last month to transfer to IMG Academy in Florida grew by one on Tuesday.
According to his Twitter, Kaedric Cobbs enrolled at Guyer Tuesday morning and seemingly threw his name into the hat for what should be an interesting running back competition when spring football kicks off at the end of April.

Cobbs, who is a rock-solid 5-9, 195 pounds, starred last season as a freshman at Class 4A Melissa. He rushed for just shy of 1,300 yards on 125 carries and scored 15 touchdowns before he was named a Freshman All-American by MaxPreps. Ironically, Cain received the same honor after the 2015 season.
The Wildcats, who, as you might know, love to run the football, will be looking to replace one of the best 1-2 running back tandems in the state in Cain and senior Myron Mason, who signed with FCS Missouri State.
There are several players who will compete for carries, most notably Devin Jefferson, who will be a senior in 2017, Kaleel Rhoden (junior) and Harrison Bohannon (sophomore).
Now, you should add Cobbs’ name to that list.
