McFadden Looks To Help 2024 Prospects At Blanche Ely

While Terrence McFadden takes over Pompano Beach Blanche Ely with plenty of excitement, he knows that there is still some work to do before he looks into the future.

With spring getting ready to start in the next month – and his attention will be directly on the 2025, 2026 and 2027 prospects, the Tigers still have several student/athletes from the Class of 2024 still searching for a home.

With a tremendous program the past few seasons, this is a team that was loaded with quality football talent. As many have moved on and will attend college next season, there are five major contributors to the success still without a college to attend.

Gab Almonord Jr., CB, 6-0, 180. One of the prospects who has been on the radar the past two years. He brings plenty to the table as an athletic secondary performer, who has plenty to offer. While colleges have shown interest, nobody has taken a chance, and that is surprising. Watch his film and you will see what everyone has been missing.


Quincey Classeus, DE/OLB, 6-3, 215. Here is one of those impressive football players that then head coach Mike Bailey and his staff all bragged about before the start of the 2023 season. His size and ability to make plays has separated him from so many who play the same position. His work ethic in the weightroom and on the football field has certainly paid off.


Marquis Harry, CB, 5-10, 175. Talk about an instinctive player who is always around the ball – whether on passing downs or in pass coverage. It is indeed surprising, after watching him perform, that all schools would want this impressive talent on campus. The one thing that must impress you is the way he can blow plays up from the start.


Deon Wiggins II, CB/S, 5-10, 175. When you talk about a versatile football player, here is certainly the definition. Not only does he can lineup anywhere in the defensive secondary, but he is lethal on special teams as a returner, who can take one back at any time. His speed is way underrated!


Edward Macintosh III, RB/LB, 6-0, 180. It’s a shame when college coaches watch a student/athlete like this play, and they don’t come away impressed. This is a quality football player who runs the ball out very well, has tremendous vision and the quickness to get those tough yards. He is physical and versatile enough to also play linebacker. While he’s getting it done on the football field, he is also making positives happen in the classroom – where he carries a 3.5 GPA.



When the Tigers start spring practice, McFadden will join a group of coaches who will guide their new teams in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.

Here is a look at those coaches:

Fort Lauderdale Stranahan – Jacky Candy

Hialeah Gardens Mater Academy – Jase Stewart

Homestead Everglades Prep – Jermain Kelson Sr.

Miami Belen Jesuit - Nicholas Oyarzun

Miami Carol City – George Stubbs
