Quarterbacks Take Center Stage In south Florida

Because we get to watch as many prospects in south Florida live as anyone throughout the course of a year, there is more of an opportunity to discover prospects that many get a chance to see.

While the marquee players are always in the spotlight – whether it’s games, practices, camps, combines and 7-on-7 events, there is a large group that never gets the spotlight they deserve.

Over the past five plus decades, we have had the opportunity to watch, evaluate and track all levels of quarterback, it is wise to understand that a very small percentage of these young men really have the opportunity to compete at a major college. That’s why hundreds of colleges and universities across the country read our prospect information that includes EVERYONE. It’s a reputation that we are indeed proud about.

Anyone can tall about a star-rated athlete, but what about those athletes who will play at the D2, D3, NAIA or Junior College level? There are 30 times as many of those athletes than the ones being covered by every recruiting service, fan website and media agency.

Today, we take a look at some of the south Florida quarterbacks to keep an eye on – in all classes.

GETTING THE SPOTLIGHT

As we said, there is a group of football talent that has gone more attention than others – and as we know – that can change in the coming months.

Here is a look at some of those football players who are heavily on the radar as we get ready to start the 2022 season:

The Class is definitely up to bat this season – as many we have watched the past three-four years will get the opportunity to continue to showcase their skills.

Leading the way are potential record-setters Taron Dickens (Miami Northwestern) and Collin Hurst (Davie Western), who both have the opportunity to put their respective names down as the best to play the position in Miami-Dade and Broward respectively.

In addition, the Miami Central duo of Keyone Jenkins and Dylan Tulloch have shown that they can play at the highest level and come out on top.

The class also features UCF-bound Dylan Rizk (Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons), gifted Miami Edison transfer Hezekiah Harris (Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas), Blake Murphy (Plantation American Heritage) – injured last year – and someone who never gets the recognition but may be the best athlete of the 2023 group, Mahki Rolle from North Miami Beach.

Like the group in 2023, the Class of 2024 looks to be quite impressive – with C.J. Bailey (Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna), A.J. Hairston (Coconut Creek Monarch) and Monsignor Pace transfer Adrian Posse (Miami Christopher Columbus).

Also, prospects such as Alberto Mendoza (Miami Christopher Columbus), Michael Merdinger (Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons) and J.T. Tabora, who led the way for Hollywood Avant Garde Academy.

The future – as we know is truly bright – as Class of 2025 standout Ennio Yapoor, who led Hialeah Champagnat Catholic to the 2A state finals last year, is now at Miami Norland.

]A few corrections. One of the big off season moves this year is Max Lawrence transferring to West Hialeah HS. Max is bulking up and soon will be 195 lbs 6’ 3”. He will continue to grow throughout the year. On top of this, he is a 4.780 student. He may be one of the true diamonds in the rough. Wouldn’t be surprised if some big named schools have Max on the radar
