Week 9 Sunshine State Standouts

Another week of the high school season is in the books and SunStateFootball spent some time in Broward County on Friday. Here are some players that stood out as potentially top prospects.


Player of the Week

Jordan Scarlett, RB, University School

We picked a good time to see University School for the first time as Scarlett put on a show. It might have been the freshmen's coming out party as it was easily his best game of the season. Special talent who already has legit size at the RB spot. Word is that he is quite the track stand-out, we did not see it as he never opened it up on Friday as he was able to just glide past defenders. The sky is the limit for this potential superstar. Like national recruits Sony Michel and Joseph Yearby in South Florida for 2014, Scarlett has a chance to headline his own RB class in the state.

Offensive Player of the Week

Tyler Cogswell, QB, American Heritage-Plantation

Cogswell has really improved by leaps and bounds over the past year. We liked his accuracy and ability to get the ball out on time. He gave his play-makers an opportunity to do something after the catch. He was in charge offensively and clearly more poised this year. At 6'5, the junior has already visited Boston College and Penn State this year and figures to be one of the more heavily recruited QBs in the state. Cogswell's delivery has been cleaned up and is much better this year, he should have a plus arm down the road.

Defensive Player of the Week

Michael Deeb, American Heritage- Plantation

The 6'3, 215 pound junior middle linebacker was seemingly in on every play. He is very physical and plays with a great motor. He looks like one of the best middle linebacker prospects in the state, if not the Southeast. Very little not to like: he has good size, he can run, and clearly is not afraid of contact. He also played some fullback where he blew up several defenders. Looks like the type who can carry 240+ down the road. Deeb should be heavily recruited during the next cycle.

Remember the Names

Maquerius Bain, 2013 DT, University School

First year playing football. Prototype size. Coming from the basketball court, very nimble and athletic. Bain made plenty of plays Friday and we would be shocked if he was not one of the more heavily recruited players in the state.

Quincy Wilson, 2014 S, University

Son of former Miami CB Chad Wilson. Already has size that colleges want, might add an inch or two. Has all the tools.

Khairi Clark, 2014 DT, American Heritage-Plantaton

The sophomore transfer from American is right at 6'1 and about 280 pounds already.

Trevon Lee, 2014 WR, Cardinal Gibbons

At 6'1, 175 Lee has a lot of big play ability. Could be a special player down the road.
