D$'s Post-Season Top Prospects in Dade/Broward- The Sleepers

D$'s Post-Season Top Prospects in Dade/Broward- The Sleepers

DMoney
Before I get into the Top 35 seniors in Dade/Broward, I wanted to spotlight a few players who are flying under the radars of college scouts. Five years from now, one of these guys may end up as the next Antonio Brown or Lavonte David.

Osband Thompson, LB, Jackson, 6’0, 200 pounds (uncommitted)

I have no clue why Thompson doesn’t have more offers. He is a three-down linebacker that can rush, cover, and make plays sideline-to-sideline. His ability to time his blitzes and get skinny through gaps reminds me of Sean Spence and Colin McCarthy. He isn’t the twitchiest player, but he plays fast and has an outstanding feel for the game. Against Northwestern in the Soul Bowl, he had three fourth-down stuffs and at least six tackles for loss. Thompson is the most complete linebacker I watched this year.

Kahlil Render, QB, South Dade 6’1, 185 pounds (uncommitted)

In 2012, Render was a seldom-used player for a struggling Homestead team. A year later, he was a state champion and one of the most prolific quarterbacks in all of Florida. Render’s arrival from across Lucy Street helped transform an underachieving South Dade offense into a multi-dimensional powerhouse. Render threw for 41 TDs (including a state-record 5 in the title game) and made numerous big plays with his legs. He is developing into a dangerous passer and could be a steal for a spread team at the next level.

Frank Newman, LB, Homestead, 5'11, 205 pounds

Like a lot of Dade County sleepers, Newman is rumored to have grade issues. But on the field, he is a fast-twitch terror. Newman has great get-off, excellent closing speed and a relentless playing style. He is the type of high upside defender that will blow up at the Juco level.

Tevin Evans, LB, Booker T, 6’0, 200 pounds (uncommitted)

It’s hard to go unnoticed when you’re one of the best players on the best team in the country. But for whatever reason, Evans is not getting hype. He should be. Evans is a tightly-wound, explosive player that can close distance in a hurry. He plays down and standing up in high school, but projects as a downhill inside linebacker. Reminds me a little bit of Spencer Adkins.

Reginald Bain, OL, Central, 6’4, 265 pounds (FAU)

Bain still has a lot of growing to do, but his athleticism catches my eye every time I watch Central. Excellent player in space. Bain has faced some of the best pass rushers in the country and held up very well. He took a big step as a senior (his junior highlights are below) and is poised to make an even larger leap in college. Don’t be surprised if a school like West Virginia comes in late to snatch him from FAU.

I am actually glad that Newman is going to JUCO. If he gets back to the point he was at as Freshmen/Sophomore, he will be a BIG TIME recruit coming out in two years. All on him though..Hope Al keeps an eye out on him and this doesnt turn into a Lavonte David situation. (Who by the way made FIRST TEAM ALL PRO this year)
 
D$, knowing what you know about our roster, our commits, and our targets, do you give any of these kids a scholly if you're Golden?

I don't know enough about their grades/off-field issues. But hypothetically putting those to the side, I'd offer at least one of the three linebackers. We need more help there.
 
Do they have any measurable besides height and weight? that might be the hold up on the offering

Yup.
 
I wonder if we ran a 4-3 scheme would these guys be takes for us.

They're definitely smaller than Golden likes to bring them in.
 
Kahlil Render was MVP of yesterday's Dade/Broward game with 2 TDs.

If he doesn't go D-1 it's a crime.
 
We definitely need to Offer Osband Thompson now....dude will be a very productive LB at the next level after a red shirt year..unless he can play on ST right away....I could see Render at being a very productive Spread QB in the future
 
DMoney, not questioning you at all, just wondering how Newman has grade issues, but offers from Yale and Syracuse as well as Indiana and USF (assuming Rivals is accurate).

I'm just passing on rumors regarding his grades. I couldn't tell you anything with certainty. The fact that he bounced around schools and sat out his junior year suggests something is up, whatever it may be.
 
Here are some highlights of the game. Render makes some real nice runs, and Thompson blocks a FG and has a sack/strip that leads to a TD.

Render is #1, Osband Thompson is #53, CJ Worton is #6, and Winky Flowers is #9 (all on the White Team).

shake my head at Winky leaving here to play QB… He needs a voice of reason to let him know that he's costing himself and his family a lifetime of financial security with this decision
