Underrated kid of the year award goes to....just watch

Recommended Posts

http://www.hudl.com/v/2Aqjw6

Ok what am I missing here with this kid?  I mean he's 5'8 but that just can not be the reason not one big program has offered this kid.   

Mandarin WR Demario Douglas.     1300+ yds 16 TDS WTF?    Noticed him while watching tape on Mandarin QB Carson Beck and just couldn't help but ask myself who the Fk is #1??   So I look him up...and I'm disappointed.   FAU?  UAB?   Don't even care if he's 5'8.    Watch the film and tell me I'm wrong!!  Kid is a stud!

As pointed out in a earlier post, lots of kids around the state that get passed over because the don't meet the required measurables......Manatee had such a kid this season Kenyon Fordham here are just his senior season highlights, his junior season highlights are much the same:  http://www.hudl.com/v/2APT9A

Recruiting sites are very lazy

 

If he was at IMG, STA, Miami Central, Miami Northwestern, ect they probably would have him at least as a 3 star and likely higher

 

Mandarin got some talent for sure, I think it's a toss up between them and Trinity Christian for best teams in duval going into next year

So what's the deal then?  This kid's tape is as good as it gets.  Even with smaller stature, his tape should garner this kid solid offers.    I posted his film on the a Florida forum and even that one guy that says everyone sucks was impressed and confused.   Did he tank at a camp he went to or something?

I mean apparently he's committed to Liberty?  WTF?  Kid is a 4 star IMO even at his size.

True.  Meanwhile,  6'2 and 6'3 receivers getting offers as juniors with 300 yards on the year strictly on measurables.

Measurable's are the "in" thing right now.  We have a dude just like yours: http://www.hudl.com/profile/6192740/Sean-Atkins/videos and as of now is looking at a preferred walk on at USF.  While that's great it's not what he deserves.  Plus the kid has over a 3.5 GPA.  We actually have another kid this season that HAS the height measurable and is being overlooked even with the skills: http://www.hudl.com/profile/10966448/Shamaar-Mohr/videos He just got turned down by Richmond for not being heavy enough?

I recently saw a Twitter post of a 5'8" 165lbs QB being offered by an SEC team (Kentucky)!  Come on man.  Unless he grows fast we all know he is highly unlikely to go to UK (0.3% chance and yes I looked into the numbers).

    • The Indianapolis Colts have been sponsoring the Indiana high school football playoffs for the past 10 years and the finals are played at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Their 6 state final games typically average about 7000 attendees per game.   Attendance at our 8 finals in Florida typically average less than 4000 per game.   http://www.maxpreps.com/news/7i8wgZirhkOi1psIZp8qkA/ihsaa-football-brackets,-stat-leaderboards-and-rankings.htm As you'll see from their website, the Colts are very involved with youth and high school football in the community.  I've looked on the websites for the Dolphins, Jaguars and Bucs and don't see anything like this.  It's disappointing we have 3 pro teams in the hs football hotbed of Florida yet the game doesn't seem to get as much support as a state with 1 pro team and a lot less hs players/teams.  https://www.colts.com/community/highschoolfootball/
    • Hopefully we beat Vero this year, I’ll be at that game without a doubt. Is Columbia playing you guys next year?
    • Is there a really that much of a difference once you are in the 1000s range? I mean these teams are playing completely different in completely states with probably very little overlap. Promoters of high school football here in Florida have tried some of the marquee match-ups with 2-3 games on a Saturday. Stadiums don't get filled. The biggest shame is that with 3 professional football teams in the state (4 if you want to count the Orlando Apollos), that more isn't done in the community to promote football as a whole. The NFL should be requiring empty stadiums to be used early in the season for big Saturday promotion of games. Make the games free. 

      Imagine 2 games on a Friday Night and 3 games on a Saturday at TIAA Field (Jax), Raymond James (Tampa), and Hard Rock Hotel (Miami) with 10 of the biggest teams in the areas or criss cross areas. Imagine a Trinity Christian facing off against Mandarin in the night time game, or Miami Northwestern vs Miami Central, or Plant vs Lakeland. Needless to say, professional sports sometimes stink at being ambassadors of the game on a community level. 
    • Ouch!   Not sure I'd want to be sitting at that dinner table right now.  
    • Would that be Jesse Hester (FSU) ?  If so, I remember him well.....great ball player
