RECRUITING EVALUATION: Eddie Haupt
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.
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 2005.
I hope you enjoy this rare look into the football players in the state from a firsthand:
PLAYER: Eddie Haupt .
SCHOOL: Merritt Island
www.floridakids.us PRE-SPRING RATING: 16
THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID:One of the most athletic linemen we have watched in a number of years. The kind of football player that you see for the first time and he sweeps you off your feet by the number of things he can do with his big body.
EVALUATION:"Having been fortunate to watch him lineup a year ago twice when the spotlight wasn't directly on him, and of course the pressure was nothing like it will be this coming season, I watched a young football player emerge into a star.
This is a young man who dominated the line of scrimmage with his size, quickness and strength, and showed why he will be one of Florida's elite players in 2004."
THE INSIDE STORY: Having Mike Mangold as a teammate a year ago may have turned out to be a blessing as Eddie's maturity as a player grew every week the Mustangs played. Big time player!
