FACA All-State Game Standouts

Some of the state's top prospects played on Wednesday night in the FACA All-State Game in Sebring, Florida. Here are some of the standout players, along with a photo gallery.


Top Overall Prospect

Jessamen Dunker, OL, Boynton Beach

The Florida commit was a bulldozer on the field. At 6'5+ and over 300 pounds he simply manhandled defensive linemen all game. He was not perfect, but it was easy to see the upside of this young man going forward. Dunker could be a RT or perhaps slide inside to guard in Gainesville. One thing is for certain, we expect him to make an impact at the next level.......and perhaps the next-next level.

Legree really helped his stock Wednesday night

Sleeper of the Night

A.J. Legree, ATH, Fort White

It was the first time seeing this young man in pads and he did not disappoint. The Kentucky commit is an athlete's athlete. He lined up at WR where he made at least one spectacular catch. He has great leaping ability as well as quality size(6'1+). He was a two-way star on the field in 2011 and we could see even more upside at perhaps DB down the road. Excellent pick-up by the Wildcats.

Just a Baller

Tyreece Jiles, CB, Cape Coral

The North Carolina commit actually played wide receiver in this game and made a pair of brilliant plays. He is being recruited at cornerback and that is where his ceiling is. Jiles has one of the best senior seasons in the state with 1,000 yards receiving and over five interceptions on defense. Tough as nails. One of the top risers in the state.

Other Notes

Duke commitment Thomas Sirk has a lot of tools to work with. All of 6'5, 225 he has really worked on his mechanics and throws a very catchable ball. He has the athleticism to play TE down the road as well.

There were some quality backs on the field with Dalvin Battle, Leon Allen, and Tion Green. Battle is being recruited as an athlete, he has plus hands. Allen is headed to Western Kentucky and is a big, bruising RB. Green is headed to Cincinnati and has really added size over the last year. He almost got loose a few times.

At WR, Raph Andrades, Brandon Brooks, Ricky Jones, and Jeremy Jones each helped their stock in this case. Andrades will be visiting Notre Dame in the near future and has a big body. Brooks out-produced the heavily recruited Chris Black this year at First Coast. He caught a pair of TDs in this one. Ricky Jones will be a play-maker from the slot. Explosive. Jeremy Jones is a real sleeper. At 6'1, he has not been heavily recruited, but we hear that is about to change.

Will Holden and Cody Waldrop helped their stock on the OL. Holden is certainly one of the state's top 5-6 Offensive Tackles. The Vanderbilt commit has a good frame to work with and has improved his athleticism over the last year. Waldrop, not to be confused with Armwoods OL of the same name, is a pure Center. He might be the second best in the state at that spot and has several schools keeping close tabs on him.

It should come as no surprise that Grady Redding made plays. The Cocoa stud is under-sized at LB, but all he does is find the football. Illinois commitment Tajarvis Fuller was also very active and was perhaps the most vociferous player on the field. He could slide back to Safety in college. Physical kid.

At DB, LaDarion Young made an interception and possesses quality D-1 size. He will likely play Safety. Centennial's Ty Jackson also had a big game. He seemed to be around the football all night. Way under the radar.

Tremaine McCullough played both ways for the South. He might have been the only play to do that. He is on the short and thin side, but he has it in terms of acceleration. Real speed. He could settle in at CB or be an offensive specialist.
