With dozens and dozens of camps, combines and 7-on-7 events – as well as practices and scrimmages, we have the pleasure of watching just about every prospect in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties over the course of a year.
Because we are NOT consumed with the high star rated players, it gives us the opportunity to see schools and prospects that many just do not have the time for – or the desire to see.
Starting Year 51 this week brings everything into focus – as we continue to shine a spotlight on those athletes who may get lost in the recruiting shuffle that is south Florida.
Having already brought you 2,500 football players in this region, our objective is to continue to showcase and spotlight these outstanding stars of the gridiron.
Today, we bring you five football prospects to keep an eye on:
2022 - Aris Angelo, QB, 6-3, 210, Miami LaSalle. When head coach Helder Valle talked about this young man’s potential, he spoke about his size, athleticism and ability to make plays, His 271 yards and 4 touchdown performance in the kickoff classic showed exactly why college coaches need to get on this quality talent before others do.
2024 - Isaac Brown, RB, 5-9, 170, Homestead. From the first time we watched this quality talent at the high school level last season with Miami St. Brendan, he was indeed the real deal – with the price of admission, playing on both (linebacker) side of the ball. This season for the Broncos, look for him to be that runner the Broncos will need to get to the playoffs. Had 260 yards and two scores in a kickoff classic win against Miami Carol City.
2022 – Gerald Hernandez, OLB/TE, 6-1, 225, Hollywood McArthur. You would have to go back nearly four years ago to the first time this impressive and versatile football talent made a major impact for the Mustangs – as a young force. Fast forward, and this young man is a playmaker – starting off his senior season in style last week with a dominating performance. He will certainly be needed if this program is going to make some noise in 2021.
2024 - Vincent Shavers, OLB, 6-0, 205, Miami Monsignor Pace. Saying that this young man is going to be one of the next great stars in south Florida is something that is definitely true. A running back last year TRU Prep Academy, this impressive talent has already turned heads on the defensive side of the ball – with a strong kickoff classic performance. His summer was also impressive as major colleges have already found out about him and all are impressed. Will make head coach Mario Perez and the Spartans tougher on defense in 2021.
2023 - Matt Wilson, RB, 5-10, 185, Parkland Douglas. If people want to be honest, outside of Boca Raton Saint John Paul II fans and a few others, nobody watched this young man last year – or for the most part – ever knew he existed. Players and coaches at Douglas have been talking about him all summer – and in his debut against Delray American Heritage, he had 180 yards and scored twice – while splitting time with two other backs. He will be one of the most dynamic football prospects in south Florida this season.
