RECRUITING BRIEFS: Chris DeArmas
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.
In these Recruiting Briefs, I will try and give you some quick points about the athlete. If you should need a more extensive evaluation, please feel free to e-mail me at FloridaKids1@hotmail.com.
I hope you enjoy this rare look into the football players in the state from a firsthand:
PLAYER: Chris DeArmas
SCHOOL: Southwest Miami
www.floridakids.us PRE-SPRING RATING: Not rated.
THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID: Has matured into one of the top line prospects in the state. At a school that rarely produces this type of talent, this could signal a change for the Eagles' football program.
EVALUATION: "There are not too many linemen with this size and strength that are agile and athletic enough to take part in 7-on-7 events, but for the past two years, more coaches have recognized what kind of football player he is from taking part in events like that as a tight end or linebacker.
Has been timed in sub 5.0, which is something that attracted the attention of college coaches. He is strong, has quick feet and is fast to pick up blocking schemes.
As I said last year after watching him play, this is one of those young men who will make a difference at the next level. Not on what he does now, but what he is capable of doing over the next five years!"
THE INSIDE STORY: Southwest Miami has not been a place where college recruiters can make a living, but with E.J. Jones and Evans Adonis last season and Chris now, things are changing.
