2025 Miami-Dade, Broward Making Early College Commitments

As we know by now, the landscape of college football recruiting has changed dramatically.

It wasn’t long ago that making a choice on where to play football was something that many, who were “tweeners”, took their time. Not anymore!

The transfer portal and NIL have ruined amateur sports at the collegiate level. The word LOYALTY should be removed from the dictionary because attending one college and playing for one program are in the past.

Transferring from one school to another has put high school recruiting in jeopardy. Most schools would opt for a 20-21-year-old who has been to school and adapted to college life and are mature over a 17-18-year-old who has much to learn.

Because the NCAA never wanted to step in and do their job by governing collegiate athletics and keeping a close watch on the portal and NIL, this has become a runaway train.


With the window being open for a shorter time, student/athletes are making their decision before the start of their final season.

While many elite prospects still have their choice when they will commit, it all falls on those players who are NOT star-rated athletes to make a choice before transfers fill the roster.

Because this region of the state is always watched and recruited heavily, many are making their decision before the start of July.
