'Canes Lead For Another Standout

Alan Abrams is one of the state's top tailbacks. He is from Apopka High School and is currently leaning to Miami, although the Canes have not offered. Florida is high on his list. So far, Abrams has two scholarship offers.

Alan Abrams is one of the top running backs from the Sunshine State. Last season as a junior, he helped lead Apopka (Fla.) High School to the state championship over Miami Northwestern. In that championship game, Abrams rushed for 166 yards on 12 carries and scored one touchdown.

"I see the field very well," said Abrams. "I am elusive and I can lower the shoulder and break tackles."

Abrams rushed for almost 900 yards and 11 scores on the season. He also got to play with and learn from one of the state's top prospects last season, Brandon Merriweather, a hard hitting safety that signed with Miami.

"Brandon taught me how to lead. He is gone and I have to take that leadership role over. He also helped me with my vision in practice because I was always looking for him if you know what I mean."

According to Abrams, he currently has two scholarship offers from LSU and Indiana. But if he has his way, he could be playing college football with his old friend.

"Miami is my favorite team. They are close to home and Brandon is there. I also like Florida, LSU, Georgia and Tennessee. I want to pick a college where I feel comfortable and I would also like to play early."
