I definitely agree with Smiley, McGhee, and Bivins. Smiley is a good RB from Catholic who was injured early against Gulf Breeze and missed most of the season. If you're talking about the WR from Washington (McGhee), he seemed to score multiple TD's for a team who wasn't very good. Bivins will make the change from QB to RB at Pace. He's a big, strong runner. Two others I would include would be Wright from Navarre. He played WR for them last year and I believe he scored 3 TD's in the spring game. The other is Walter Yates from Gulf Breeze. Big safety who had 8 int's for Gulf Breeze. He's pretty physical at the line of scrimmage as well.

I agree that your additions are good players.  I filled out my list with the word "underrated " in mind.  Wright and Yates seem to get a lot of pub so they are rated pretty highly already.

Oh man there are probably at least 100 kids from South Florida that should be in this thread. Who wants to take that challenge on? 

I dont envy the guy that has to come up with that list. LOL. Broward and Zoe you got one heck of a homework assignment. Its gonna be some late nights if you take that challenge on. So so many studs that are under the radar in SFL!

It would be a project.  Would have to just stick to Seniors...Then we have to determine the criteria for underrated?   

Not enough offers, not enough exposure, a kid with no offers that might be ready for a D2 type program?   

There are so many great players at the HS level that may never see a D1 program but will continue at D2 and D3 schools....

 

Take a look at D2 Florida Tech's 2016 Roster and you will see probably some all county kids, kids that played in State Championships, kids that played on nationally ranked teams.  A lot of these kids probably never got that big time offer, but are kids we would have called perhaps playing in the shadows of others on their team.  These are probably the kind of players that were underrated.

First kid I see on the roster is a DB  Manny Abad out of South Plantation High School.  I had heard of the kid but am stunned when I read his bio that he is a D2 Academic AND Football All-American.    This is a kid that may have been able to play at a FCS school if he was a sub at a St. Thomas or AHP but never got the exposure at South Plantation.  Probably the kind of kid that we would label as underrated if and only if we knew of him....  I'm sure his parents are proud of him with a great academic and athletic career.

I also stumbled upon an amazing story on this guys after I did a little more searching on Abad....I swear to everyone reading this I had no clue....

Guys if I were to tell you that that kid in that photo was going to be a Tennessee Titan in 5 years , would any of you believe me????

This just shows you how you just never know....

That's true. They definitely could have beat Bethune a couple seasons back.

    • It's on there team preview page. At the beginning of the season, it was 35 hardest, remember Columbia was top 10, 
    • I'm just saying Rockledge is getting all the transfers now.  They already have 5 transfers
    • it is the same as maxpreps.  Give me the link please.  That 20.6 is there SOS.  It is not even in the top 100.  The 102-62 record of opponent is really good.   Madison has to play 1A teams which hurts their SOS.  Most 1 teams are not ranked very high.   26 Madison County (Madison, FL)   team preview   trend Florida 1A Region 3 1A 12-2 0-0 6-0 49.3 20.6 102-62
    • No real surprises honestly, it looks like it is spread out among numerous classifications and regions of Florida. I wonder what state title team since 2000 has the worst winning percentage over the same period as above. My guess would Nease or Jupiter Christian or Jefferson County.    
    • Here are the best programs to have not reached a state title game this century, sorted by their W-L Pct. vs. Florida Competition (2000-2019). Out of State contests are not included.   School W L Pct Vero Beach 168 51 0.767 Jesuit (Tampa)  178 58 0.754 Hillsborough (Tampa) 160 63 0.717 Columbia (Lake City)  164 65 0.716 Fletcher (Neptune Beach) 159 66 0.707 Largo 159 66 0.707 Fort Myers  161 67 0.706 Charlotte (Punta Gorda)  161 69 0.700 Lafayette (Mayo) 151 66 0.696 Countryside (Clearwater)  149 66 0.693 Hardee (Wauchula) 153 68 0.692 Dunnellon 147 68 0.684 Dixie County (Cross City) 150 70 0.682 First Baptist (Naples) 77 36 0.681 First Academy (Orlando) 151 71 0.680 South Fort Myers 112 56 0.667 Park Vista (Lake Worth) 109 55 0.665 Calvary Christian (Fort Lauderdale) 104 53 0.662 Merritt Island  149 77 0.659 Lake Wales 147 77 0.656 Winter Park 145 78 0.650 Fleming Island (Orange Park) 120 65 0.649 Winter Haven  143 78 0.647 Plantation  140 77 0.645 Pace 139 78 0.641
