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.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Here is yet another example of a quality athlete who is athletic and very talented, giving college coaches an option of putting him at a number of positions on the field.
Watching him on both sides of the ball, this is a player who has good hands and runs very well, making him a valuable player as an H-Back or possession receiver. His hands and body control make him very attractive to college coaches.
On the defensive side of the ball, watching him recently during workouts, he is active, quick and reacts to so many plays. This is a football prospect who could end up on the defensive side - at an outside linebacker - because of his ability make plays and read offenses.
In a region that is loaded with talented football prospects, here is another to add to that lost. One who continues to turn heads with his knack of making big plays. Has the chance to be in the 225-230 range at the next level.
