CLASS OF 2006: Pre-Spring Top 275

By now, you have come to understand that when it comes to recruiting, there is no other ONE source that can give as much information as we do. Here is the prep-spring list for the Class of 2006!

As you read this Pre-Spring list for the Class of 2006, keep a few things in mind. First of all, if a name does not appear, that doesn't mean the athlete is not a D-1A prospect. There will be over 350 athletes from this class who will compete at the D1A level. THIS IS JUST A STARTING POINT AND THERE WILL BE MANY CHANGES OVER THE NEXT 10 MONTHS!

Also keep in mind that this list was formed in a manner that no other individual or organization has ever, in the 30 plus years of compiling a list of this nature, has undertaken.

From traveling the state and seeing thousands of players live to talking with coaches and watching countless hours of film, the first list was compiled so that you, the fan, can start following these players and forming opinions about others not mentioned.

As we do each year, we invite you to send VHS tapes of an athlete that is not listed or mentioned too low, to us, and that will give us yet another option in covering this state like nobody can possibly do throughout a 12 month period.

Thank you for your continued support, and as is mentioned every year, THIS LIST IS FOR REFERENCE ONLY. Please respect the work that has gone into getting this ready for you, the football recruiting fan!

If you have comments, please send them to FloridaKids1@hotmail.com – or forward all of your tapes to: Florida Kids, P.O. Box 3181, Hallandale Beach, Fl. 33009.
