South Florida Express Surprises

Here are some players that surprised at the South Florida Express try out over the weekend.

Many of the South Florida stars in the classes of 2015 and 2016 attended the South Florida Express try out over the weekend at McArthur high school. Everyone knows the big names like Torrance Gibson (Plantation American Heritage), Sam Bruce (Ft. Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas), Devante Peete (Ft. Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas), Tyrek Cole (Miramar), Darnell Salomon (Hialeah Champagnat Catholic) and Rashard Causey (Ft. Lauderdale University School), to name a few.

But there were a handful of guys under the radar that caught my attention over these two days. Here are some of the try out surprises.

(QB) Deundre Pickett-White (Miami Southwest) 2015
Picektt-White certainly turned some heads. He's a strong armed quarterback with a very nice build. He's every bit of 6-foot-1, 182-pounds. I like his build and he has a big time arm. The problem is that he only has one pitch – the fastball. But he has plenty of time to develop that arm so that he can throw the variety of passes needed to be a successful quarterback. Cincinnati has already offered him a scholarship.

(QB)Ryan Stanley (Pembrook Pines Flanigan) 2015
You could make a strong case that he was the top quarterback over the two days at the South Florida Express try out. He displays a solid arm. He throws with accuracy. Stanley has good size and a fairly good and quick release. He's one to watch.

(QB)Tyler Huntley (Hallandale) 2016
Huntley was impressive on both days. He has a good arm and size. Best of all is that he has time to develop. This is a kid with a long way to go but with a ton of tools to work with.

(RB) Johnnie Hankins (Homestead South Dade) 2015
You can make a strong case that Hankins was the top running back at the South Florida Express try out over the two days. He caught the ball extremely well, showed good speed and athleticism. He has a chance to become a very hot prospect this spring and during the May Evaluation Period. He has good size and nice build.

(RB) Robert Burns (Miami Gulliver Prep) 2017
Burns was one of a few freshman at the try out and this kid was impressive. He already has good size (5-11/205) and he was not intimidated whatsoever playing in this kind of competitive environment with mainly older players. He caught the ball well and showed good speed. Burns will only get better. He already holds offers from West Virginia and Cincinnati.

(WR) Vosean Joseph (Miami Norland) 2016
Joseph is raw but talented. He has good size and is almost 6-foot-2. I like how he catches the football. It's natural to him. He has a long way to go but certainly has the talent to develop into one of the better wide receiver in the '16 class from south Florida. He's hearing from no one at this point. Last season he played five different positions for Norland – running back, wide receiver, fullback, defensive end and defensive tackle.

(WR) Dredrick Snelson (Plantation American-Heritage) 2016
He could be another star at this high school loaded with talent. The thing that jumped out at me regarding this recruit was his explosiveness. He has a ways to go but has some good tools to work with. He's a good looking kid that's already 5-foot-11, 190-pounds. Snelson holds four scholarship offers right now from Purdue, Cincinnati, Nebraska and UCF.

(WR) Clarenton Cowart (Homestead) 2015
Cowart had a nice Sunday, doing well and making plays all day. He has good ball skills and speed. Cowart gets open and can create separation. He showed good hands.

(LB) Tevon Coney (Palm Gardens) 2015
This is a young man with good size. He's athletic and can move. He certainly has a chance to put himself into a position to become a D1 prospect.

(CB) Malik Henderson (Hallandale) 2015
Henderson is one of many good looking prospects from Hallandale high school. He's a good sized defensive back that showcased some good cover skills at this try out.

(S) Devin Bush (Pembroke Pines Flanigan) 2016
This is a young kid with great size and athleticism. He has the right name and a very bright future.
