Limar is a 4-star in the 247 Composite. He’s rated by 247Sports as the 12th-best running back in his class and the 242nd prospect overall. He also holds offers from Arizona State, USC, Oregon State, Utah, and Washington out West.
In addition to playing multiple spots on offense and even taking snaps on defense, Limar runs track and plays basketball for his high school. As a sophomore, he ran an 11.19 100. 247Sports’ national recruiting editor Brandon Huffman had this to say of Limar’s game:
Limar had the highest Sparq rating at the Portland Stack Showcase in fall of 2020. He is well built with good wiggle and shiftiness, with a frame that should add some more weight. He does a good job anticipating his linemen clearing the way, being decisive in his hole selection, putting his foot in the ground and getting up field. Limar sees the field extremely well, runs with good balance and can get yards after contact. He does a good job of churning out some tough yards. Can continue to get stronger, with his speed already there.
