The best thing about spring football in south Florida is no matter where you go in Miami-Dade or Broward County during the spring, there are some hidden gems.
Throughout the month of May, while the college coaches are attending practices, scrimmages and other showcase events, there are football players – many who have not gotten the publicity they deserve that are starting to turn some heads.
From now until the end of the summer, we will use our LIVE visits to practices, games, 7-on-7 competition and college camps to bring you some of the football talent that may not grab the attention of recruiting “gurus” who sit home and evaluate from their computers.
Here are five prospects who are starting to get plenty of recognition:
2025 – Logan Andrews, WR, 6-3, 190, Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons. Definitely one of the prospects that you will need to keep an eye on. His speed, athletic ability and knock of getting open in the secondary will truly give the Chiefs a deep threat. His size and route running will be the reasons that this young man will continue to jump into the spotlight. He comes from an athletic family – where his sister plays volleyball at the University of Miami and mother was a standout softball player at FAU.
2026 - Anthony Brown, OG, 6-5, 315, Miami Palmetto. With all the off-season moves in Miami-Dade and Broward County perhaps the one that could turn out to pay off in huge dividends is this impressive football talent, who leaves True North to play for the Panthers. This is someone who brings everything to the table – at a young age – and with college coaches already watching him perform, you can expect everyone to turn their attention in his direction. Tremendous feet, improving strength and athleticism that is hard to teach. The Panthers got a good one here.
2026 – Ben Gula, OL, 6-6, 250, Western Cypress Bay. The secret has started to get out, and while very few recruiting analysts and local fan websites have watched him play, college coaches who are coming through already have an idea about a very talented “big man” who has the chance to be very special. What sets him apart from anyone in his class is his athletic ability and quick feet. Leave no doubt that this is a gifted prospect who will jump onto the radar nationally over the next year.
2025 – Darriel Harper III, WR, 5-8, 155, Miami Christopher Columbus. On a team loaded with talent – especially at the receiver position, here is another name to add to that impressive list. One of the top underclassmen in south Florida, here is a quality pass catcher who can lineup anywhere on the field and impact the Explorers. As a kick returner, his speed and ability to get through holes will be something that college coaches will watch as an enhancement to everything else he brings to the table. Solid prospect who will be fun to watch the next two years.
2026 – Calerbe Hermane, TE/ 6-4, 205, Athlete, Davie Western. Talk about a budding prospect. The Wildcats have struck gold with this impressive young prospect, who is athletic, has size and skill and could end up on either side of the ball. Comes from Palm Beach Christian via Surge Academy, and while he flew under the radar early on, college coaches that we have talked to have been bowled over by his future and what he brings to the table.
