Sometimes a change of location can do an athlete good. And, while it doesn’t always work out, there are times when it does – and it’s a win/win for the student/athlete that football prospects heads to.
In south Florida, there are so many athletes – especially in the defensive secondary – that there is often not room at one position or another – and as athletes are always looking for playing time – there are instances making a move will actually work out.
Look at the history of football players in this region of the country. The talent runs so deep, athletes are often forced to change positions, and while the move is not always permanent, it is done to help teams win football games.
The competition to gain a scholarship is so great, athletes aren’t always willing to wait - and because they want to jump on the radar screen – that change is often necessary.
PLAYER: Jaylin Marshall
SCOUTING: As part of Chaminade-Madonna’s run for a third straight state title this past season, this is a quality football player who is regarded as one of the best cornerbacks in south Florida.
Because the talent in the secondary for the Lions was so great – especially at the cornerback position – an off season move to Hallandale could certainly work out for this physical defensive secondary standout, who brings everything to the table you are looking for.
A tall, rangy corner, who has outstanding ball skills, he combines the size of a safety and the instincts and playmaking abilities of a cornerback.
His move to Hallandale has started to work out – with several colleges offering and showing interest, and that has come with limited film from this past season and no spring.
His work ethic – during the pandemic – has shown that he is anxious to join some very talented football players in the Chargers’ secondary. He also stood out in the 7-on-7 season in January, February and part of March.
