Football: Area’s 2013 class picking up major offers during spring practice 

By Jeff Greer

Right after signing day in February, we listed a group of 2013 prospects who will attract serious attention from colleges before next year’s signing day. Let’s catch up on who has reportedly offered the best and brightest recruits in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.

If you look back at our original post (click here for it), there’s a list of names. Well, now we can update you on which one of those players has received a verbal offer from a college. And we’ll work on an end-of-spring-practice Big Board, and these names will all be considered for spots on it. But for now, I’m only listing kids alphabetically. Do not read into the lists for any rankings.

Remember, these scholarship offers are verbal as of now. Colleges cannot make and send official, written offers to high school players until Aug. 1 before their senior seasons. Signing day is Feb. 6, 2013.
