Top Fla Prospects – Broward 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 the journey today in the South Florida county of Broward.

David Delsoin, Sheridan Hills Christian, 6'6, 260
*First Team All-State for 1B.  First Team All County for the Sun-Sentinel.   Ideal frame and built like a greek god.  Big time potential.  Only question is desire and competition that he played.

OT- Jermaine Barton, St. Thomas, 6'6, 275
*Huge backup OT for back to back State Champion St. Thomas.  They also won the mythical National Championship.  When called upon has shown good around skills.  Obvious ideal frame.  Senior year will be big for him.

OG-  Joe McNamara, Cypess Bay, 6'2, 270
*First Team All County by the Miami Herald.  Road grader with nice frame and athleticism.

OG- Quinton Roland, DIllard, 6'3, 330
*Massive mauler who needs tore-shape his body.  At his size, he displays some light feet at times.  Guard prospect with upside. 

DE- David Perry, University Christian, 6'7, 235
*Tremendous frame.  Perry moved from Jamaica to Ft. Lauderdale and played his first year of football.  Outstanding athlete who moves well.  Raw in all parts of his game.   Does not use his hands.  Plays against lesser competition.  A boom or bust type prospect, but the ceiling is the first round of the NFL draft.  A solid summer on the camp circuit and coaching will go along way.  3.5 GPA.

DE-  Travian Bailey, Miramar, 6'2, 210
*First Team All County by the Miami Herald.  Had 80 tackles, 11 sacks, and blocked two punts.

DE- Desmond Bozeman, Dillard, 6'4, 210
*First Team All County by the Miami Herald.

LB- Vinnie Mauro, St. Thomas, 6'1, 215
*Second Team All County by the Sun-Sentinel.   Another St. Thomas linebacker who flows to the ball and makes plays.   Plays downhill and is a sure tackler.  Has nose for football and seems to be in the right place.  Back to back State Champion.

LB- Justin Birkenholz, Douglas, 6'1, 195
*Young LB who played outside and attacked the backfield.  Just starting to fill out.   Was a wrestler and now is focused solely on football.  Figures to carry more weight in the future.  Technically sound, does not miss tackles.  Highly productive.

LB-  Jamaal Bass, Miramar, 5'11, 200
*Terrific athlete who excels in space.  Had a better sophomore campaign than junior.  Capable of taking skills to the next level.

CB- Tony Grimes, Hollywood Hills, 6'0, 170
*Honorable mention All County by the Miami Herald and Sun-Sentinel.  Physical cover corner with solid measurables.  Likes to hit.  No one can shake him one on one.  Competitor, confident.

CB- Cody Riggs, St Thomas, 5'10, 170
*First Team All-State for 5A.   First Team All County by the Sun-Sentinel.  The son of NFL Legend Gerald Riggs.  Riggs had eight interceptions and 20 pass breakups.  Has a nose for the ball and the smooth, quick hips that project well to the next level.

CB- Devin Drane, Plantation, 5'11, 165
*Another solid cover corner from plantation.   Josh Robinson and Brandon Mcgee headlined the 2009class and Drane has great ball skills and speed.

S- Brian Robinson, St. Thomas, 6'0, 170
*Third Team All County by the Miami Herald.  Quietly goes about his business.  Will let his presence be known in the run game and has smooth back feet in the passing game.  Plays on a loaded defense so does not get the opportunities of some.

S- Demar Dorsey(UF), Boyd Anderson, 6'1, 180
*Second Team All County by the Sun-Sentinel and Miami Herald.  Dorsey is fast, fast, fast.  Recently ran a 4.31 and 4.25 at the Under Armour combine in Orlando.  Great frame for a safety.   Needs to put it all together on the field.

S-  Reynaldo Kirtin, St Thomas, 6'1, 170
*Does not get the publicity of team mate Brian Robinson.   He is a hitter who is still growing into this body.   Best days are a few years out.   Had a few big hits in state championship game.  Back to back state champion, he will be one of the leaders on defense in 2009.
