The Southwest Florida region features several of the state’s top prospects at a variety of positions across the board. 

Here, Six Star Football takes a look at several of the top OLB and MLB prospects in the 2021 class in the Southwest and Suncoast areas.

Jake Chaney, 6’0, 215, MLB, 2021, Lehigh @Jakechaney9
Clearly a huge talent, Chaney, a Wisconsin signee was one of the most highly touted play makers regardless of position in Florida and the Badgers got a dandy.  Chaney is a player that is super fast off the snap, a guy that has very fast feet but also is a pure fact reacting and explosive play maker.  One of those backers in the middle that can shoot the gap and a guy that have proven among the very toughest to get a block on and keep him from living in the offensive teams backfield.  Chaney is in for a huge 2020 season on one of Florida’s best looking talent programs at Lehigh.

Keuntay Felton, 6’2, 187, OLB/TE, 2021, Clewiston @onewayyfelt
Felton is a well-built and athletic prospect two shows good size, speed and a hard-nosed mentality to the field. He can see time on both sides of the ball and has soft hands and can pull in passes and is physical and can handle contact and initiate it as well. Felton is great at stopping plays in the middle of the field and can force his way through lineman and get to the backfield as well. An aggressive and physical player who pushes back and shows good upper body strength and ability to rip the ball out of an opponent’s hands and lay them out in space. Felton currently holds offers from Stetson University, Judson University Liberty, Florida Community Christian and Ave Maria. A strong player who pushes himself in the weight room, he reports a 245 bench and a 415 squat.

Vincent Husband, 6’0, 230, MLB, 2021, North Fort Myers @HusbandVinny 
At 6-0, 230 D1 size all the way backer and a pure power guy that will blow you up upon contact from his middle backer spot for North Fort Myers.  Husband is a player that is very good at fighting off blocks to make some huge plays.  A guy that at 230 shows excellent closing speed on plays to the outside edges and running lanes. Power and speed, all you could ever want at backer and Husband shows he has a lethal dose of both elements to his game.  Is a FACA All-District selection as well.

Terrod Kearse, 5’11, 195, MLB, 2021, Dunbar @KearseTerrod 
One of the elite speed backers in Florida, Kearse is a player you can’t block, when you watch him it looks like nobody is even getting close, his speed is that of an elite DB playing middle backer. A play maker that loves to rack up QB sacks and hurries with his speed QBs won’t outrun him and he is a guy that can chase anybody down with his closing speed,  Is an excellent tackler that finishes plays off with power and force. Offers from Toledo, Louisville, FAU and Illinois are his top four choices right now.  You would be very hard pressed to find a more talented and physical looking athlete in Florida right now.

Michael Moriarty, 6’0, 210, MLB, 2021, Naples @mike50moriarty 
A 1st Team Defense All Area, Florida 1st Team Defense All State and an elite play making machine for Naples in the middle. Moriarty racked up 105 tackles, two tackles for losses, a forced fumble and had eight QB hurries as a junior in 2019. A very punishing play maker that loves to come up in the middle of the action, smack the first blocker in the mouth then make the tackle and stop for the key run stop.  Michael is as tough as they come  and packs a mean punch, plays super hard and is a very tenacious man in the middle that is a fine play maker and loves to mix it up.

G’Koby Winn, 6’0, 190, OLB, 2021, Hernando @32Winn 
Elite speed off the edge for this big time looking OLB, a physically impressive play maker with big shoulders and a powerful athletic frame that uses speed to blow up and be a major force and disrupter for Hernando.  Flys all over the field and the offense has no answer to match his speed,  One of the most impressive special teams speed guys you will see also that uses that elite speed to block kicks and be a major force and play maker.  Watch out for a very dynamic and speedy play maker that is a very fine athlete.
