FLORIDAKIDS.us CLASS OF 2005 RECRUITING EVALUATION:
While you can find out just so much about watching film on an athlete or talking to him on the phone, there is a major advantage to seeing the athlete live. I have been fortunate to see more high school football players in person in the state of Florida than any other source.
In these Recruiting Briefs, I will try and give you some quick points about the athlete. If you should need a more extensive evaluation, please feel free to e-mail me at FloridaKids1@hotmail.com.
I hope you enjoy this rare look into the football players in the state from a firsthand:
PLAYER: William Moore
SCHOOL: Havana East Gadsden
www.floridakids.us PRE-SEASON RATING: 50.
THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID: Halfway during the 2003 season, I got a call from a coach in the Tallahassee area. He said that I needed to start paying attention to this "stud" that East Gadsden had on the defensive line. All he would tell me is that in the next five years, he has the chance to mature into one of the we've seen here in years.
When the season ended, former Tallahassee Democrat Prep Editor and current Prep Editor at the Daytona Beach News Journal, Brian McLaughlin, told me the same thing. I listened!
EVALUATION: "The first person I thought of when watching William play was former Kansas City Chief and South Miami star, the late Derrick Thomas.
While he was a lot bigger than Thomas, I saw a player with tremendous athletic ability, have an instinct that many just do not have at this level of play and someone who could dominate and make a major impact on a game.
Great feet, quick first step and a sense of where the play will end up. That is what I looked at right away, and I was impressed. "
THE INSIDE STORY: As you have heard me tell you again and again, when you have so much talent in one state, like we do here, it is often difficult to find everyone, and I will tell you now, here is that star-quality athlete who begins the 2004 season as the No. 50 overall player with the potential to move up quickly."
