The football season will produce some top players across the state of Florida. Here is yet another…
RECRUITING BRIEFS: Michael Holton
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: Michael Holton
SCHOOL: Pompano Beach Ely
www.floridakids.us PRE-SPRING RATING: 36
THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID: Ended the 2003 season as one of the top football players in South Florida and was being recognized as one of the best in the state.
EVALUATION: "A physcial athlete who has deceptive speed (4.7), tremendous strength (300 bench) and the knack of making the big play.
As a tight end, he blocks well, uses his strength and athletic ability to get up field as well as anyone I have watched. Had a good spring classic against Miami Booker T. Washington as well as a solid off season where he showcased his skills at two camps and one combine. He still has some things to work on, but has proven that he will work as hard as possible to learn."
THE INSIDE STORY: Will emerge as one of the top players in the state through the year with a new coaching staff in Tiger Land.
