Live feed of the FHSAA football title games


I will have a breakdown of the 2012/2013 FSU targets to watch for in each game. 7 p.m. Class 1A — Chipley vs. Jefferson County (Monticello) These teams play in lowest classification in Florida. Not that much talent in this game. Chipley- The man to watch for Chipley HS is OT Cole Western, who is a little bit of a sleeper for the 2013 class. He has pretty good size at 6'4 270lbs. He is a D-1 player in my mind. Junior Highlights here Jefferson County- From what I have seen Jefferson County has no D-1 players for the 2013 class. Saturday, Dec. 10: 1 p.m. Class 3A — American Heritage (Delray Beach) vs. Madison County (Madison) American Heritage- FSU targets: #4 2013 RB Greg Bryant- The top 2013 RB in Florida, Greg Bryant will be playing in this game. Bryant already claims offers from top schools like Alabama, LSU, FSU, and Oklahoma. FSU visited him last week. Great size, feet, power, agility and good not great speed is what Bryant offers at RB. He is a coaches son who knows the game very well. Bryant has very impressive stats on the year. He's rushed for 1,933 yards (averaging 11.6 yards per carry) and 22 touchdown Junior Highlights of Greg Bryant: Here #55 2013 OT Roderick Johnson- Sleeper alert. While Johnson is not rated by any services, this is a guy who has the potential to be a top 30 player in Florida this time next year. He is 6'4 280lbs and has great feet for the tackle position. Johnson also claims a 4.87 40 while this probably isn't accurate, it's easy to see he is a great athlete for a big man. A BCS recruit who will see a lot of offers come his way this spring. Junior Highlights of Johnson: Here Not FSU targets, but talented players: #80 2013 TE Tyler Provo- Already has a BCS offer from Syracuse. A little undersized at 6-2 220lbs. BCS type player Highlights of Provo: Here #8 2012 WR Cameron Posey- Has a couple BCS offer(Illinois, Purdue). Good sized WR that doesn't have great speed. 2013 ATH Marcus Davis- No offers yet. Good athlete, but is undersized. Player to watch going forward. 2014 WR Darrell Langham - Good sized WR at 6'3 185lbs who has some potential. Player to watch being only a Sophomore Madison County 2013 ATH Tommie Young- Good sized RB at 6'1 210lbs that could project at another position(FB/LB) at the next level. I have only seen a little of Young play this year so I'm interested to watch a full game. Highlights of Young: here 2014 RB Deonshay Wells- Probably the best prospect on their team from what I have seen. While undersized he is still only a Sophomore. Probably a BCS type player once he adds more size. Plays for same HS as FSU RB Chris Thompson Highlights of Wells here 7 p.m. Class 4A — Booker T. Washington (Miami) vs. Bolles (Jacksonville) Booker T. Washington FSU targets #6 2013 LB Matthew Thomas - A top 20 player in Florida for 2013. This is a 6'3 210lb prospect who can run(sub 4.6 40). Athletically he reminds me of FSU LB commit Markuss Eligwe. Big time prospect who has multiple BCS offers already. On the year Thomas has 98 tackles with 13 sacks. Highlights of Thomas here More highlights of Thomas here #72 2013 OT Denver Kirkland- Another top 30 prospect in Florida for 2013. Has multiple BCS offers. Athletic OT prospect with good feet. Kirkland has been a part of the offensive line since his freshman year and has good size Sophomore Highlight of Kirkland: Here Other top players #5 2014 ATH Treon Harris- Son of coach Tim "Ice" Harris(UM grad). Sophomore who will need to add more weight to be a BCS recruit. Harris on the year rushed for 868 yard with 18 TD's, while adding 1,400 yard and 14 TD"s passing. #1 2014 WR Lamar Parker- This undersized Sophomore WR has been getting it done since his freshman year. Very shifty, with good speed. If he can gain some height/weight has a good chance to be a BCS recruit by his senior year. Stats on the year 30 catches for 467 yards and 5 TD's. Freshman Highlights: Here #30 2013 S Michael Johnson- A little undersized but shows good hips/speed on film. This game will be a good test to see if he is a D-1 player or BCS. Has 4 interceptions on the year #2 2013 CB Darren Parker- Parker didn't progress as much this year as I would have hoped hope for. 5'10 CB with good hips. Has some potential. Sophomore highlight here Booker T has a great 2014 class to watch out for in this game. Bolles 2014 ATH Dexter Carter, Jr- Yes, the son of FSU RB Dexter Carter. He has very good speed for only being a Sophomore. Needs to adds some size, but from a athletic standpoint has the potential to be a BCS recruit. 2012 OT John Theus- UGA commit and top 2 player in Florida for 2012. Not much needs to be said about this great player. 2012 OT Jon Heck- UNC commit. Big fan of this massive OT prospect.

From top Florida Offensive Tackle John Theus to top North Carolina running back Keith Marshall expressing the loss of this great recruiter. The majority of Florida's success in recruiting has come from Pantoni's work behind the scenes, while other coaches take credit. He is a major reason for the success of Florida summer camp, Friday Night Lights.Pantoni was able to get recruits from across the nation to attend the camp on there own dime. He was the man behind the curtain and his impact will be felt in Florida's recruiting. RB Keith Marshall:Keith Marshall RT @jtheus71: Just learned that UF has got rid of their recruiting coordinator Mark Pantoni.He was definatley one of the best I dealt with. OT John Theus: John Theus And a shoutout to @markpantoni .. best of luck in the future.. i know you'll be successful Noles247 Analyst Josh Newberg: Josh Newberg If the rumors of @markpantoni leaving #UF to go to #OhioState are true...OSU is getting one of the hardest workers in the biz. https://twitter.com/joshnewberg247/status/141250761748254720 Background on Mark Pantoni: Mark Pantoni is entering his fifth season on staff at the University of Florida, and second season as Program Coordinator for recruiting.

A look into the future: 2013 Saint Petersburg Catholic HS Running Back Ryan Green


This is the first part of a series I will be doing on 2013 prospects that have Florida State offers. Today we look at Saint Petersburg Catholic High School RB/CB Ryan Green Height: 5'10 Weight: 195 Offers:Notre Dame, Florida, Florida State, Kentucky, and Purdue 2011 Stats: 125 carries, 1069 yard , 14 TD 8.5 YPC Evaluation of film: A projected every-down college back with game-breaking speed, Green is one of the top backs in the state of Florida.The first thing you notice about Ryan Green is that he makes it look so easy. Part of this is the competition(3A) he plays against, but it also has to do with his 10.9 100 meter speed he possess. Green possess this excellent straight line speed with elite agility and great feet, which is one reason why some colleges are projecting him as a corner back. He possess great hands out of the backfield and will even run some routes out of the slot. Green has ideal size at 195lbs and a compact body structure, this guy is extremely quick-twitched and is a threat to rip off a huge run at any time. There is a reason why Ryan Green is one of only a few 2013 running backs who have offers from the Big 2(FSU/Florida). Top 30 player in Florida in my opinion for the 2013 class Background on Ryan Green: Green has visited multiple colleges this year including FSU. He was a participant at Jimbo FIsher Camp this past summer, were he received a verbal offer from the Florida State staff after an outstanding showing. He has multiple family members who have attended Florida State, including his sister. Additional Junior Highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkmkVhg4OrE

Junior Highlights of St. Paul Episcopal RB Jordan Huff


Junior Highlights of Florida State 2013 RB target Jordan Huff. I've recently learned that Huff has a torn ACL. He was averaging over 9 YPC for his St. Paul squad who play in Alabama(5A). Most recruiting analyst consider Huff a top 10 prospect in Alabama due to his combination of sub 4.5(electronic) speed, 195lbs size, and impressive feet. He clams a verbal offer from FSU and visited during the Oklahoma game this year. His former teammate is FSU QB Jacob Coker.
