Three of Florida's top high schoool senior football prolspects are expected to be in for official visits this weekend. Safety/linebacker Zeke Motta from Vero Beach, linebacker Jon Bostic from Palm Beach Central in Wellington and defensive end Kedric Johnson from Palmetto are all scheduled to take a closer look at Tommy Tuberville's program this weekend.
One of the most physical linebackers in the country, Bostic is considered the third-best weakside linebacker in the nation by Scout.com, but at 6-2, 225 he could play any of the three positions on the next level. Through three games of his senior season Bostic had made 18 tackles after a monster junior year that saw him finish with well over 100 tackles. In addition to the Tigers Bostic is looking at Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Tennessee and USC.
"I am looking forward to the visit," Bostic says. "Mark Dorminey, who is the father of one of my good friends, played at Auburn and I have heard a lot of good things about Auburn."
Dorminey was a standout safety for the Tigers, who lettered for Auburn from 1980-82. Dorminey and fellow safety Bob Harris, who were known for their physical style of play, were known as the "Bruise Brothers."
Bostic, who is also a standout running back, says he is looking forward to spending time this weekend with Auburn's linebacker coach, James Willis. "I feel comfortable talking with him," the high school senior says.
A standout at an Auburn summer camp, Motta is a 6-2, 210 safety who could wind up playing linebacker on the next level. He has narrowed things down to a workable list with Florida, Notre Dame, UCLA, Clemson, Boston College and Stanford all in the running along with the Tigers. A four-star prospect and the number 19 safety in the country by Scout.com, Motta had 143 tackles as a junior.
One of the top pass rushers in Florida this season, including Ryne Giddins, is Johnson. The 6-4, 225-pounder with great speed and quickness off the corner made an astounding 19 sacks and 40 tackles as a junior in 2007. That was enough for schools from all over to start calling and sending offers.
