Our #21 athlete has some things in common with #22. Just like Dakwandre Marshall, he is a high octane tailback in the beltway area coming into his senior year.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in all of Northern Virginia. That’s a tall task, considering that we track the talent at 86 high school programs in the region. Coming into our countdown as the #21 senior prospect region-wide is R.E. Lee running back Jonathan Mulatu.

Oddly enough, we just wrote about Jonathan Mulatu earlier this week because he made his college commitment to Villanova.
That’s impressive, but it’s also impressive how he carried his team offensively in his junior season.
In 2017, Mulatu was selected as a First Team All-National District running back and punter after posting 1611 rushing yards on 193 carries to go along with 10 catches for 139 receiving yards and a total of 20 touchdowns on the season.
In addition to the offer from Villanova, Jonathan held offers from Lehigh, Delaware, Elon, JMU, Lafayette, Towson, Fordham, New Hampshire, Yale, Harvard and Georgetown before making his commitment.
