Over the next two months, we will tour the state of Florida, looking at football players, coaches…
RECRUITING EVALUATION: Paul Griffin
What I will do is use my 30 plus years of evaluating talent on the football field to give up a complete opinion on the top football players in the Class of 2004.
I hope you enjoy this rare look into the football players in the state from a first-hand. LIVE vantage point:
PLAYER: Paul Griffin
SCHOOL: Pensacola Senior
www.floridakids.us PRE-SUMMER RATING: Not rated.
THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID: While you usually like your defensive line prospects with more height, here is a player who will eventually emerge at the major college level in the middle.
EVALUATION: A prototype nose-tackle who is one of the strongest football players in the state. He is going to be a force on the line because he combine his strength, quickness and knowledge of the game. Saw him go through drills impressively at the Gainesville Nike Camp.
If you are looking for a player who can dominate on defense in many ways, here is the athlete to do it. He is well coached to make life tough on runners as well as quarterbacks who try to pass.
THE INSIDE STORY: A truly gifted football player who continues to make major strides on the football field.
