Doyle, Grooms and Chickillo on radio

It's now a week away from the biggest day in college recruiting, and the Maroone High School Gridiron Report is staying right in the middle of the action.

Larry Blustein and Mike Levine have a tremendous show planned this week as they count the days down with three impressive guests on Thursday night's show on WQAM (560 AM).

Linda Doyle from the South Florida High School Football Show will take part in the 9-10 show along with University of Miami commitments Kevin Grooms of Hollywood South Broward and Tampa Alonso standout Anthony Chickillo.

The past two years, Doyle and her staff have hosted the best signing night show anywhere.

On Wednesday night, Feb. 2, Dave & Busters in Hollywood will once again host the live TV Show on NBC-6 with Joe Rose and Adam Kuperstein along with the top prospects in South Florida who will be on hand for interviews as well as showing off their college choices.

The show will run live from 7:30-8.

In addition, WQAM (560 AM) will host a show with Josh Darrow, leading into the live TV event from 7-7:30.

After a brilliant youth football and high school career, Grooms now sets his future goals on being a top-flight player for the Hurricanes. The 5-9, 175-pounder, who not only was one of the elite running backs in the state, but also played cornerback and returned kicks, chose to stay close to home and play for a program on the way back up.

The first South Broward football player to compete for the Hurricanes since Bill Hawkins back in the 1980s, Grooms brings plenty of excitement to Coral Gables.

During the transition between coaches at Miami, there has always been a priority of keeping Chickillo committed.

One of the best defensive end prospects in the country, Chickillo becomes the third generation of his family to play for Miami. His father Tony (1979-82) and grandfather Nick (1950-52) were standouts for the 'Canes.

Chickillo said that he will be signing his National Letter in Miami.
