EYE ON RECRUITING: Pembroke Pines Somerset Academy Building For The Future

If you have followed us long enough, you already know that very few promote EVERY and Broward Counties – at ALL levels.

With that in mind, colleges coaches from Hawaii to Maine and every in between keep an eye on what we produce.

We have never been in this to sell subscriptions or spotlight star-rated athletes. This is ALL about getting prospect information out to colleges and universities at every level.

With that said – and you know what we do and why we are here 365 days a year going to events, practices, camps, combines, and games and NOT sitting behind a computer – we will spend this off-season getting everyone promoted.

For over a half century, we have been honored to help football prospects across the state of Florida get some well-deserved recognition.

We not only put these prospects on this website for all fans to see and follow, but all the information that is provided to us is passed on to the over 500 college coaches that are part of our recruiting coverage. Today’s EYE ON RECRUITING will be on PEMBROKE PINES SOMERSET ACADEMY (@LaquentinTaylor) with first year head coach Laquentin Taylor moving in from Groveland South Lake (near Orlando) to take over a Panther teams that finished 6-5 last season under Nitro Baker. The team came up with wins against North Broward Prep, Miami Ransom Everglades, Cooper City, Boyntong Beach Somerset Canyons, Pembroke Pines Flanagan and Hialeah Gardens Mater Academy before losing in the first round of the state playoffs to Doral Academy.
