"I'm just trying to stay ahead of the game, trying to get my name out there, however I can," Figueroa said when asked what he's been doing lately. "I'm staying committed in the weight room, keep working hard, and I'm trying to better myself every day."
Figueroa, 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, talked about a few offers he's already received.
"I got Harvard and I just recently picked up Northern Illinois," he said. "Most of the schools I like that I'm hearing from are Boise State. They want me to take a visit next month. UCF, I went up there a few times already and they want to see me again in the summer. I like Mississippi State and they just started contacting me. It came out of nowhere. I've been in contact with the coaches a few times."
Figueroa is an all-purpose player at the prep level but projects as a safety in college.
"I play safety but can play rover, nickel back, other spots. I wanna see where they want me to play. I wanna see what type of academic programs they offer and if they can offer a major I like. That's about it, really."
The standout defensive back had a strong weekend performance at the IMG 7on7 Tournament in Bradenton over the weekend for the Treasure Coast Elite team.
