Ohmari Black, DB,2023, Park Vista @OhmariB
Black is a player that can use some impressive athletic skills to be a major downhill play maker, good closing speed, fine looking athlete for sure, one of the hardest workers you will find at getting stronger, faster and quicker at his game and craft. We could see all of that major talent paying off in a huge way in 2022 with this athletic play maker really having a big senior year at Park Vista. Black was third on the team with 33 tackles and had 21 solo and 12 assisted tackles in his seven games.
Bijay Boldin, 6’0, 176,FS,2023,Pahokee @BjBoldin
A junior play maker in the Blue Devils secondary unit, Bolden is one of the standout athletes in the area to know and a big reason the teams defense had some impressive outings on a consistent basis this past season. 37 tackles in nine games, really looking for this star prospect to be a 50 to 60 tackler in 2022 with his speed and experience, Boldin can reach any play on the football field and has no problems delivering a major blow to the ball carrier as a hard hitting knock you out power safety.
Caleb Chamberlin, 6’1, 167,FS/QB,2024, Palm Beach Gardens @Caleb_Chambo
This sophomore prospect from the Palm Beach Gardens High team is a name to know and at 6-1, 167 does a fine job of making some huge plays on the ball in the air from his free safety spot. Chamberlain is one of those guys that loves to get after it and is one of the more physical tacklers in the open field out there, really plays very hard and is a play maker that loves to deliver some huge hits and make the WRs feel it.
Donnell Daughrity, 5’3, DB/WR,2023, Palm Beach Lakes @DonnellDaughri1
Donnell might not be the biggest player on the field but his speed could prove beneficial for the Palm Beach Lakes secondary unit in the coming year. A senior that will be looking to make a final impact and help the defense to really become tough against the passing attack. Daughrity is a player that we will be looking at among senior DBs to watch for in 2021.
Zachary Favors, 6’0, 160,CB/WR,2023,Wellington @FavorsZachary
Favors is a very athletic play maker and this CB and WR from Wellington is one of those athletes that can go out and be the better athlete on the football field, very impressive man to man play maker with excellent footwork and speed at both WR and corner for the Wolverines in the open field. Favors has the speed to go out and be one of the better play makers in the 2023 class. Big things ahead for this hot ‘23 athlete and play maker.
Joshua Gachelin, 6’1”, 165, CB/FS, 2023 Santaluces @J0sh2x
Joshua is a player for Santaluces that can always seem to be in just the right spot to make the next big play in the Chiefs secondary unit, lean and fast, 6-1 and a player that has the length to pose some major mismatches in the defensive backfield, no doubt Gachelin is a guy that is an eye catcher and has the talent to rack up some impressive offers.
Chase Hanning, 6’1, 176, DB, 2023, Somerset Canyons @Chase_H17
Hanning is a 6-1, 176 defensive back from Somerset Canyons and a junior that will look to be a key senior as well in 2022. Hanning will look to get more playing time and experience in 2022 as a senior and will be a player that the Cougars will look to among the secondary talents to step up and make some key contributions to the defense in what is expected to be a big 2022 season of talent coming up.
James Jackson, 6’1, 165, DB, 2023, Pahokee @JamesJ561_
Jackson is a good looking senior play maker for the Pahokee Blue Devils secondary unit with some size also at 6-1, 165, Jackson is a player that can be as good as he wants to be and had 31 tackles in nine games as one of the major leaders of the secondary unit, Jackson has big time speed, and is a great one on one matchup guy for speed and breaking up the big passes plays in the open field. Hot name to know for sure coming up.
Isaiah Johnson, DB, 2023, Palm Beach Lakes @IsaiahJ36576493
Isaiah Johnson is a name to know in the class of 2023, this play making corner for Palm Beach Lakes high school is a very versatile athlete and can play other offenses spots and positions at both receiver and running back, and safety is his main spot on defense after corner. Reports a 4.7 time in the 40 yard dash, Johnson is a player that is very coachable and keeps getting better and better with more and more experience. A name to know in the 2023 class for Palm Beach Lakes.
Michael Wright III, 5’11, 165,FS/WR,2024, Palm Beach Gardens @MichaelEugeneF4
Wright is a play maker for Palm Beach Gardens that will look to be a key junior come 2022 and is one of those guys that plays hard and tough. A big timer and starting WR/DB/KR for the Palm Beach Gardens High school team, Wright reports a time of 4.7 in the 40 yard dash. We would not be surprised is Wright becomes the #1 rated corner in his class, but he is also a clutch performer at receiver also.
