6'1" | RB
Lehigh | 2023
- Lehigh c/o 23
Young is a 4-star Prospect and one of the best backs in the state of Florida, he had a very good sophomore season rushing for 982 yards and eight touchdowns and averaged over nine yards per carry. Young is an outstanding prospect that has very good burst and does a good job running through contact and keeping his balance, he’s a one-cut runner with the ability to hit the seam and take it to the house. Young shows no wasted movement, he sees a hole and hits it for big chunks of yards and consistently finishes his runs always falling forward. His film is very impressive. Young has 27 offers including power 5 offers from Auburn, Ohio State, Florida, Florida State, and Arkansas just to name a few.
Dave Stfort- Immokalee High c/o 24
Stfort is a name to keep an eye on in 2021, he’s a very versatile player that can play running back or slot, his quickness and acceleration really stand out on film, despite his size he shows good balance and the ability to break tackles. He’s a fleet-footed back that rips off big gains; he has a lot of potential and could have a very good season in 2021.
Darian Robinson- Immokalee High c/o 24
Robinson is another scatback type for Immokalee, he shows outstanding vision and change-of-direction ability, he does a really good job reading the hole showing patience picking his way up field. His lateral agility is very apparent on film. Immokalee has two solid prospects that are young and have a very bright future.
Fort Myers Riverdale | 2022
- Riverdale High
Donahue is a very effective running back for Riverdale High, he lines up in the single wing/option, and shows good vision, speed and spatial awareness, he’s a north-south runner and when he sees a hole he hits it quickly. He also shows the ability to catch the ball and has the athleticism where he could potentially move to receiver if needed at the next level. He’s a good overall athlete and student (3.2 GPA) that plays on the defensive side of the ball as well.
5'10" | RB
Naples Palmetto Ridge | 2023
- Palmetto Ridge c/o 23
Booker’s one of the best Junior running back prospects in the state, he has eight offers including big-time offers from Penn State, West Virginia, Michigan, and Georgia Tech to name a few. He had an outstanding sophomore campaign rushing for 1227 yards and 12 touchdowns. Booker has speed and quickness and consistently rips off big runs, he’s a smooth runner with good vision/feet that picks his way through holes finding a crease and showing burst and acceleration. He has very good balance and consistently runs through tackles with power and forward lean. He’s a three-down back that also shows natural pass-catching ability. I expect him to have a monster season in 2021.
