South Florida '17- The DEs

South Florida '17- The DEs

DMoney
South Florida has a pretty good crop of DEs this year. There is no slam-dunk star like Joseph Jackson, but there is good depth and some high upside players.

Jordan Wright- 6’6, 210 pounds (Dillard)- Basketball player with rare length. Bats down a ton of balls and generally causes havoc with his wingspan. Still awkward at times and needs to grow into his body, but the potential is enormous. Teammate of Miami commit Jonathan Ford.

[HUDL]athlete/6238418/highlights/304696401[/HUDL]

K’Jakyre Daley- 6’3, 215 pounds (Suncoast)- Natural pass rusher from Devin Hester’s old school. Elite first step. Has some similarities to All-American Eric Striker (Oklahoma has offered).

[HUDL]athlete/3441480/highlights/289228412[/HUDL]

Owen Carney- 6’4, 225 pounds (Central via Miramar)- Aggressive player with a big frame and closing speed. Reminds me of a poor man’s Chad Thomas. Ran into trouble last year when he pushed Flanagan’s head coach during a heated game. Good upside.

Still Loading... - Owen Carney highlights - Hudl

DeAndre Johnson- 6’3, 220 pounds (Southridge via Killian)- Excellent balance and coordination. Plays under control. Was stabbed in his chest at school by his girlfriend but has since recovered. Not a freak athlete but a really good football player.

Junior Highlights - Deandre Johnson highlights - Hudl

Lashawn Paulino-Bell- 6’3, 235 pounds (STA via Coconut Creek)- Athletic pass rusher who reminds me physically of former Canes DE Jamaal Green. Also plays some LB and shows good change-of-direction. Potential riser now that he’s at St. Thomas.

Junior Highlights !!!!! - LASHAWN PAULINO-BELL highlights - Hudl

Deslin Alexandre- 6’6, 225 pounds (Deerfield Beach)- Like fellow Buck Jason Pierre-Paul, Alexandre is a converted basketball player with loads of raw potential. Excellent frame and some burst.

Jr Mid-Season - Deslin Alexandre highlights - Hudl

Guy Thomas- 6’4, 210 pounds (Columbus)- Flash player with very good tools and uneven production. The brother of FSU LB Matthew Thomas. Will make an eye-popping play and then disappear. Boom or bust or player at the next level.

Sackman - Guy Thomas highlights - Hudl

Noah Curtis- 6’5, 210 pounds (Palm Beach Lakes)- Versatile player who also gets snaps at QB and TE. Good athlete and productive.

Jordan Wright is a big Miami lean right now. IF Daley is offered he'll be a 'Cane. Guy Thomas could be spectacular under Kool.

Im a big Jordan Wright fan. He has stud on the next level written all over him. I always bet big on a guy who is that size and is a stud on the basketball court and aggressive enough to play football too. Is he staying at Dillard or going to STA?

In that case, I hope we offer Daley. He shows good recognition skills and a great nose for the ball. He looks very natural and has a nice frame and long arms. Get this kid in the weight room and under Coach Kool's guidance and we could have ourselves a very nice player.
 
Wright, Daley and Thomas as ends

Colson, Ford and one OOS DT.

Do we all sign off on that?
 
I trust Richt, Kool, et al...love all the top talent they're recruiting.
 
Daley is an animal! Good hands and great quickness off the ball. He has a savage in him it's only right a savage coach gets his hands on him
 
We should be as hard after K. Daley as any defender in this class IMO. He and the other DE from Satellite should be the focus. Others are all guys with "potential" label.
 
1.) Wright looks like he will be a beast. Great combo of length and athleticism, with what seems like a frame to add legit weight. Want

2.) Dillard's defense looks like Dallas Carter in Friday Night Lights. Just a bunch of grown ass men out there

3.) I hope Daley's measurables are accurate, because if he can get to a decent size with that first step, then he is a must get

4.) Unbelievable how many guys are transferring schools every year
 
I question Johnson's swim move if a girl put a knife in his chest.
 
Here are some more DEs I copied from posts with permission from 247. They belong to stoutbeast. I think I have covered many but I may have left a few out. In addition, some have already been mentioned. He should be over here posting as he literally has hundreds of files of most all S. FL prospects from freshmen to seniors and many others from around the state. He showed me an email from one of the owners of CIS asking him to come over as he really like his posts.

He has been doing this for 15 years. He is not on an ego trip of who posts first or what, etc. just loves the U.

His posts contain people from so-so players to the very top. He lets the reader decide on who he likes. Also kids at this age can really grow from year to year in many instances. Some kids may have grown more or moved to other schools from what is listed below.

Lashawn Paulino-Bell is the type of DE I think we need in this class. His ceiling is NFL Hall of Famer if he sets his mind to it. Would be great to get him and red shirt him properly and get him developed. I really think we only go after one though and with coach Kool it might be a real diamond in the rough.

Check out Paulino playing WR at the 2:50 mark against Gilbert Frierson. Really athletic player.

RCS Miami: WR vs. DB - Part 1 - YouTube

IMO it should be 1A and 1B between him and Jordan Wright if we only take one DE this year. I really like his possible ceiling though, could easily be the next big time draft prospect.
