Leading the way is local product Roscoe Parrish. Although he's only 5-foot-10 and 162 pounds right now, Parrish's quickness is as good right now as Santana Moss's was as a college senior.
Parrish, who played quarterback at the highschool level, was perhaps the most explosive player in the state his senior season. He reminded me of watching former Pahokee quarterback Anquan Boldin, who signed with Florida State as a wide receiver, and even scored two touchdowns against us last season.
Parrish threw for 2,201 yards and ran for 613 more while scoring 31 times, second in the county only behind UM-bound and good friend Frank Gore.
Parrish took recruiting trips to Ole Miss, Auburn, and N.C. State along with Miami, and was also offered scholarships by Michigan State and West Virginia.
Kellen Winslow is a name all football fans will recognize. The former NFL great is the father of incoming freshman receiver Kellen Winslow, Jr.
At 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds, Winslow has the frame and strength to eventually grow into a tight end. At the high school level, Winslow played wide receiver, tight end, and defensive end showing off his athletic ability.
He caught 44 passes for 810 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior. Defensively, he had 115 tackles and eight sacks.
An honor student, Winslow's 4.65-time in the 40 leads many to believe he will eventually become a tight end or defensive end at Miami, which are probably his two best positions.
Winslow chose UM in a heated recruiting battle over Washington, UCLA, Ohio State, Michigan State, and Southern Cal.
Parrish will wear No. 84 at UM, and Winslow 83.
