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: Kevin Carabeo

YEAR: 2012

SCHOOL: Miami Senior

CITY: Miami


HEIGHT: 5-11



WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: When this group of seniors looks back at the what the Stingarees did last year, the exposure of being in the state playoffs, was huge for players like this talented receiver.

If you watch an athlete like this you will see a very hard worker who continues to create positives by spending more time working on his game.

Just to watch him run pass patterns, catch the ball and make adjustments tells you that he does indeed have a future in this game. His ability to make catches, block and sacrifice his body signals someone who wants the maximum from the sport.

Whether it's in full pads, where we saw him last year and in the spring, or in a 7-on-7 setting, this is a student/athlete who continues to turn heads, giving colleges something to think about.

This kid is going to be doing big things next year. Getting even bigger and faster over the summer, and maintaining an above 3.5 GPA. Local colleges should be panning this gold-mine before they miss out on a big oppurtunity! Rumnor has it he's running the 40's in low 4.5's and bench pressing 185lbs in the 15-20 ...plus a College Quarterback arm, easliy throwing 50+ yards on the mark! This kid is a sports car with the speed, the muscle , and all the extra's!

Hands down

Yea this kid is real underrated and under used as statistically it doesn't show but coming from seeing him first hand exp in practice last summer during my freshman year and in a few games it's easy to tell that he can develop into a very productive player at the next level due to his route running ability in which he runs very crafty and fluid routes, has good speed and quick burst off the line of scrimmage, displays smooth and soft hands cacthing football, solid vertical jump could use some work, and plays with a hard nosed grind mentality during practice and games. Really even though idk know him too well and only had a few conversations with him he's somebody us younger players on the team try to emulate and follow his example though he may not realize it,but overall has a very high ceiling if he can put it all together and show the results on the field maybe a d1 school from a conference like the mwc or sun belt would suit him very well.
