Debose, who is fresh off the game-winning touchdown catch two weekends ago in the Class 6A state championship game against Miami Northwestern, is a big time wide receiver prospect with elite speed and explosiveness. At 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds, he has narrowed his list of choices down to six schools -- Miami, Florida State, Florida, Georgia, LSU, and USC. Debose told us earlier in the week that despite announcing his decision on Sunday night, he still plans on taking a couple official visits next month since he's only been to one school so far (LSU). He's been to Miami a few times for unofficial visits -- once over the summer and again for the Florida State game back in October. He said he made up his mind about three weeks ago on which school he'd announce for tonight. Debose is being recruited by coaches Aubrey Hill and Clint Hurtt. We believe he'll end up a Florida Gator because of the way they're telling him he can go in and be the next Percy Harvin.
Dye (6-4/215) is arguably the most athletic defensive lineman on either team in this game. He's had an excellent week of practice and is considered one of the state's premier prospects on the defensive side of the football. Dye has already been on an official visit to LSU and is expected to choose between them, Miami, and Florida on Sunday night. Dye told us earlier this week that he made his decision based on how he was recruited, saying that the school he will commit to recruited him more as a person compared to the other schools who recruited him more as a football player. Dye, who has been to Miami a couple times for unofficial visits already, primary recruiter has been Hurtt. We believe he'll pick Miami on Sunday night.
Armstrong (6-3/210) has looked excellent at both strong and free safety this week in practices and likely projects as a free safety at the college level. His athleticism, especially for his size, is incredible. The MVP of the Class 6A state championship game has already taken official visits to LSU and Georgia and says those two, along with Miami and Florida, are his finalists. Armstrong, who's already been to Miami a couple times for unofficial visits, is being recruited by Hurtt. We believe the talented safety prospect will announce for Miami along with Dye, his close friend and roommate this week.
