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 continue to shine the spotlight on many athletes during the pre-spring, 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.
Don't forget that the exposure continues on FACEBOOK (Herald Recruiting) and via Twitter @ larryblustein.
PLAYER: Vernon Davis
SCHOOL: Coral Reef
HEAD FOOTBALL COACH: Chevas Clements
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: There have been some impressive football talent that has been able to turn it up a few notches in the off season, but few have made the overall impact that this quality talent has.
A spring that has included being a huge part of the South Florida Express 7-on-7 team, and turning plenty of heads along the way with his quickness, ability to read formations and come up with huge game-changing plays.
This is a talent who went from way off the recruiting radar when January began, and by the time March rolled around, he was already a player who many schools were taking a long look at.
With a few schools already offering, you can almost guarantee by the time spring has ended and the summer begins, there will be several more schools who will try and sway Davis.
