Top Florida Prospects – Dade County (Part 2)

The Wolverines have three coaches on the ground in Florida. By comparison, the only state with as many is Ohio and the only state with more is Michigan. The newfound significance of the Sunshine State, has prompted GoBlueWolverine to assemble lists of the top players in the talent hotbed, region by region. We continue our journey today more players from Dade county.

WR- Quinton Dunbar, Booker T Washington, 6'3, 170
*Honorable Mention All-State for 4A.  First Team All County by the Miami Herald.  Hauled in 39 passes for 703 yards with seven touchdowns.  Tall, with a wiry frame, he is just coming into his own. Big time upside down he road.   Nice speed for his size and rarely drops a ball.  Solid route runner.

WR- Joshua Reese, Miami Central, 6'0, 180
*2nd Team All-State for 6A.  First Team All County by the Miami Herald.  Caught 45 balls for 793 yards and 10 touchdowns.  Lacks any one elite intangible but is solid across the board:  speed,route running, quickness, hands.

WR- Ted Meline,  Booker T Washington,  6'2, 175
*An outstanding package of size and speed.  Transfered to Booker T Washington from Westlake Prep. Quiet kid who lets his play do the talking.  Has every intangible that schools are looking for.  Already fast, smooth stride and ability to find the ball in the air separate him from pack.  Needs to get it done on the field in 2009.

WR-  Allen Hurns, Carol City, 6'2, 175
*Had 23 catches for 423 yards and four touchdowns as a junior.  Plus height at wide receiver.  Terrific athlete.

TE- Charles Fashaw, Monsignor Pace, 6'4, 215
*Physically imposing player who has all the intangibles.  Great basketball player who has the athleticism and hands to excel at TE.  Big frame, but will need to add weight.  Could also play DE.

 OT- Torrian Wilson, Miami Northwestern, 6'4, 310
*First Team All-State for 6A.  First Team All County by the Miami Herald.  Solid frame with smooth back pedal.  Great athlete for his size.  'Mr.Pancake', he has the natural skills to play on Sunday's down the road.  Can and should get in better shape as he is close to down growing up.  Only allowed four sacks all season in ultra competitive Dade County.

OT-  Jonathon Ragoo, Miami Pace, 6'7, 300
*First Team All-State for 3A.  First Team All County by the Miami Herald.  Has the elite height.  Needs work on footwork and re-shaping his body.

OG/C-  Jose Jose, Booker T Washington, 6'1, 320
*First Team All-State for 4A.  First team All County by the Miami Herald.  Played some guard and center as well as seeing time at DT.  Center might be his ceiling.  Massive body where he leans on smaller defensive linemen.  Will need to get into better shape.  All the tools to succeed at the next level.

OG-  Donald Senat, Miami Northwestern, 6'2, 265
*Third Team All County by the Miami Herald.   Good looking guard prospect who needs to add some strength.   Has solid footwork and stood out in the state championship game.

OG- Perry Micklejohn, West Christian, 6'3, 300
*First Team All County by the Miami Herald.

OG- Stanley Jean, Miami Central, 6'3, 265
*Guard prospect.  Central is balanced so he gets plenty of reps run and pass blocking.  Needs to weight.  Big off-season for him, he could rise up the rankings with a big summer.

DE- Lyndon Trail, Booker T Washington, 6'6, 215
*2nd Team All-State for 4A.  First Team All County by the Miami Herald.  Registered 77 tackles with 14sacks.  Elite height with long arms. Not close to being done physically.  His best days are 3-4 years down the road.  Rare first step and explosion for his height.

DE- Delvin Jones, Lasalle, 6'6, 230
*Second Team All County by the Miami Herald.  Ideal frame, but is raw.   Making transition to football where his upside is eye popping.  Super athlete with long arms and nice first step.

DT- Todd Chandler(Miami), Miami Northwestern, 6'0, 285
*Third Team All County by the Miami Herald.  Monster interior defender who plays with as much  passion as any player in the nation.  Shows non stop motor and all the intangibles. A touch shorter than ideal.  Has been terrorizing offensive linemen for two years now.  Came back from knee injury and did not lose a beat.
