Scottsdale schools Chaparral and Saguaro will not only bring out the fans on Friday but the college recruiters.

Here is a look at the top college football prospectsfrom each team in azcentral sports' Week 5 Game of the Week at Saguaro.

Chaparral (3-0)

Jack Miller, QB, 6-4, 210, Jr.

Miller committed to Ohio State on May 1. He is a four-star 247 Sports composite recruit, ranked as the No. 4 prostyle quarterback in the nation in the 2020 class. Miller's quick, accurate release with a big arm and mobility to extend plays make him one of the more attractive junior high school football players in the country.

Darvon Hubbard, RB, 6-0, 200, Jr.

Hubbard is another Ohio State commit. He is a 247 Sports composite four-star recruit and the 16th-rated running back in the country in the 2020 class. He became a red-hot prospect in the spring and summer, picking up big interest from the SEC and Big Ten. Alabama and Auburn both offered him. He is powerful between the tackles with strong cutback moves that leave defenders tangled up.

NOMINATE: Boys or Girls Athlete of the Week, Academic All-Star

Tommy Christakos, WR/K, 6-4, 200, Jr.

Another top 2020 prospect, Christakos can do it all. He could be a major-college kicker. Two weeks ago, he set a school record for distance with a 53-yard field goal. He kicks clutch field goals, even though he expends so much energy on offense as a slot receiver who is a big part of the game plan. He has offers from both Arizona and Arizona State.

Keep an eye on: Craig McFarland, OL, 6-6, 260, senior. McFarland has offers from Kent State and Northern Arizona. He protects Miller's blind side. ... WR Marcus Norvell II, 6-2, 170, senior. Norvell is good in space, has sure hands and can break away from tacklers. ... Oliver Carras, DE, 6-4, 220, senior. Carras will keep pressure on the QB and is good at closing gaps to make stops. ... Deavon Crawford, SB/CB, 5-10, 175, junior. Crawford has a chance to make it on either side of the ball with his strong ball skills and quickness.
