Having the opportunity to watch many of the athletes in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties when they begin playing football at the youth football level, the Miami Herald will shine the spotlight on many athletes during the spring and summer.
With the chance to see the athletes away from the football field as well, we can bring you up close and personal with some of the top prospects in the nation - right here in our own backyard.
PLAYER: Devin Gaulden
SCHOOL: University School
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Roger Harriott
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: When he committed to attend Auburn University earlier this week, it came as a huge surprise to many in the region and state who had never watched him play or even realized he had SEC potential.
having watched him play after he transferred in from Flanagan, where he was better known for his basketball skills than knocking down passes, catching balls or making big plays on the football field.
This is a football player/athlete who has the potential to be a big time player, and while he chose Auburn, they weren't the only ones who were bowled over by what he brings to the table as an all-around student/athlete.
Watch the things he does this coming season and you will understand why schools were so high on him. Tremendous pickup for the Tigers who are used to exceptional talent like Gaulden.
