Future Colorado State Ram Kapri Bibbs Sets Single Game Illinois State High School Rushing Record

Everyone must be asking who is Kapri Bibbs, and why is he mentioned here? Well, first off he is a three star runnign back recruit, and is currently a Colorado State running back commit; actually according to Rivals he has a soft verbal to the Rams.

Only Illinois State and Toledo haver offered Bibbs a scholarship, but expect that to change.  Bibbs who plays for Plainfield North, which just outside of Chicago, set an Illinois state record for most rushing yards in a game with 520 yards and then for good measure he added seven touchdowns. What makes this even more amazing is that Bibbs accounted for all but 26 yards of his teams 546 yards, and they needed all of it to win.

Plainfield North edged out Oswego 49-43 and needed every single yard that Bribbs put up. His performance was legendary with all but one touchdown run under 31 yards:

Bibbs' touchdown runs were from 9, 75, 31, 55, 73, 71 and 44 yards.

While his first half was amazing his second half performance was even better:

After racking up 215 yards in the first half, Bibbs scored on runs of 55, 73 and 71 yards in the third quarter, the last of which put North (5-1, 3-0) up 42-28 with 4:33 to play in the third quarter.

What a game, and Bibbs was not the only star; the opposing teams quarterback, Ryan West, had a combined 483 yards rushing and passing. 73 of being on the ground and with 410 being through the air. 

Bibbs gave the usual post game speech of how well his line blocked, but still man take some credit for yourself. Expect Bibbs to definitely to get some more offers from some bigger programs, because on the season he has 1,678 yards and 25 touchdowns in only six games. 

Too bad he is not already on the field for Colorado State, because they really need some help rushing the ball. The Rams are dead last in the country for rushing the ball, and are doing so with a paltry average of 56.2 yards per game. Here is to the Rams keeping this kid, because they could use him.

UPDATE: With his success Bibbs has said other schools have been calling, but he is committed with the Rams:

The problem is when Bibbs answers, he lets everyone know he's already committed to Colorado State, and he has no plans of changing that no matter how yards or touchdowns he runs for this season.

"They're committed to me, and I'm committed to them," Bibbs said. "I thought about the Big Ten. I was learning toward Purdue and [Illinois]. But I kind of wanted to get away, see some new places. Going West will open up new things for me."
