Spring practice is wrapping up across Florida, so college coaches are making the most of their remaining time to check out some of the top prospects in action. Here's some of the latest news from Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.
-Dwyer linebacker/safety Shawn Boone's recruitment continues to heat up. This past week, the hard-hitting junior reeled in offers from BCS programs such as Arkansas, Mississippi State, Rutgers and Syracuse. Boone has over scholarship offers at this point.
-Further north, Martin County DB Nate Simmons is picking up plenty of looks as well. USF, Duke and Eastern Kentucky have all been showing interest in the rising senior. Martin County head coach Chuck Kenyon says Simmons could play on offensive or defense in college, depending on potential schools' needs. Simmons' older brother Justin is a safety at Boston College.
-Speaking of versatile Martin County players, Scott Husnander is another intriguing prospect. The 6-1, 245 lb. rising junior plays on the offensive line for the Tigers, but Kenyon says he could play fullback at the next level. Husnander, also a baseball standout, has great athleticism for his size, finishing the year second on the team in stolen bases.
-St. Andrew's 2015 tight end Jake Bargas continues to see his recruitment heat up. Florida is the latest to check up on the 6-4, 225 lb. sophomore, with assistant coach Joker Phillips dropping by SA this past week. Miami stopped by the previous week to talk to Bargas. Currently, Bargas is committed to play lacrosse at the University of Michigan.
-Two years after sending its first player to a BCS school (Devonte Robinson at West Virginia), Village Academy could be on the verge of sending two more players to BCS level schools. Defensive tackle Kevin Bronson and wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith have been getting tons of looks this season and should see their recruitment heat up as the year progresses. UCF could be a major player for the duo. The school was out at practice this past week to check out Bronson and Smith.
