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: One of the more underrated players in South Florida, here is a prospect who has the physical instincts to play linebacker, but is agile enough to play in the defensive secondary.
Having had the pleasure of watching this quality athlete play, you tend to understand why everyone continues to rave about his ability to make plays all over the field.
Coaches who have competed against him believe that where the ball goes, he is not far behind. A very aggressive play maker who has quickness, athletic ability and a knack of being able t run down even the "fastest" players.
While the Spartans line him up at a number of positions, including linebacker, this is a safety prospect who could end up being one of the most productive in the region by the end of the 2011 season. A real hidden gem!
