FLA STOCK RISERS I Several DB prospects making noise
Six Star Football takes a look at several prospects making noise early in the season.
With the upcoming season now underway, Six Star Football takes a look at several rising DB prospects who stood out in the early going.
Seth Brooks | 6’0, 185 | DB | 2024 | Andrew Jackson | @sethbr00k4
A fast and athletic play making defensive back from Andrew Jackson High School, Brooks reports a 4.6 time in the 40 yard dash and is a key speed man in the secondary to watch for this year for the defense at Jackson, no doubt a player that is a top notch looking athlete, lean and athletic, one of those defenders that will be looking to make a lot of big plays and reads on the football in the air and be a nice coverage and shut the WR down kind of plays this year.
Ryan Gadson | 5’10, 160 | DB | 2024 | Bishop Verot | @RyanGadson18
5-10, 160 athletic and rang play making defensive back Ryan Gadson had a big first week for Bishop Verot on defense and is a player that is athletic and lean, one of those guys that is a key riser to know in Florida’s DB talent coming up, Gadson had 14 tackles against Port Charlotte in a big win. In a game with a lot of scoring, Gadson was one of the major defensive standouts in the contest to take notice of.
Tavius Horne | 5’11, 159 | DB | 2025 | Atlantic | @TaviusHorne
Attended Six Star Football Florida Showcase last spring and had one of the most athletic looking frames there, no doubt a guy with unlimited athletic potential and a sophomore to watch for this season in the secondary unit for Atlantic High School. Horne looked very good in Atlantic’s game vs. Monarch this year, a player in that game that really had great timing on his plays and was a guy that proved very tough to complete a pass against as a big time aggressive corner in the open field.
Quentin Pope | 6’0 | DB/S | 2024 | Seffner Christian | @QuintinPope6
Pope, who reports good speed at 4.5 in the 40 yard dash brings that extra gear of speed to the defensive backfield and is a player that has a knack for getting up field and making the big plays, a plater that plays smart football and one of those guys that is a top notch athlete on the team at Seffner Christian. Pope racked up a big opening game with 14 tackles from his Safety spot. One of the juniors that is playing very good football in a Florida secondary unit and a player on the rise for talent to know this year.
