2015 BROWARD HERALD SPOTLIGHT: Jordan Scarlett, St. Thomas Aquinas

Scarlett

PLAYER: Jordan Scarlett
SCHOOL: Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas
POSITION: RB
HEIGHT: 5-11
WEIGHT: 200
HEAD COACH: Rocco Casullo
COLLEGES: Committed to the University of Miami
HERALD BROWARD PRE-SEASON RATING: 1

WHAT TO LIKE: Having watched his progress since his youth football days, here is another off the charts speedster who is going to be very special. A quality football talented who spent this first three years of his career at University School before making the move to play for the Raiders this season. Has been learning the position every year - and this season is truly expected to be a breakout year - joining three other USchool teammates who came along this year. Watching his progress as a runner, he now sets up his blocks and uses every resource available. A national sprint champion as a youngster, his speed and size are rare for a back at this level. Will be a huge addition to a program that has been that has been playing at a high level for a long time.

PLAYER: Jaquan Johnson
SCHOOL: Miami Killian
POSITION: S
HEIGHT: 5-10
WEIGHT: 180
HEAD COACH: Cory Johnson
COLLEGES: Committed To The University of Miami
HERALD MIAMI-DADE PRE-SEASON RATING: 1

WHAT TO LIKE:Ever since he played youth football, this is a talent that everyone talked about. A quiet leader, his ability to line up anywhere on the field has made him a solid prospect and one of the leaders who continues to get better. Was an All-State selection as a freshman, and after shaking off an early season injury in 2013, led the Cougars to the district title. While some have taken his talents for granted, this is someone who has never moved from the top spot in Miami-Dade County. Too valuable a talent to ever believe he is not as good as you get!
