Which schools will the top 10 senior prospects in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast visit this fall? You can find the constantly updated list here.
The top 10 comes from our Big Board, which will be updated in the coming weeks. Many of the top players in the have already committed to programs, but several others haven’t. Here’s the list, which was compiled using 247Sports’ prospect pages:
1. Kc McDermott, OT, Palm Beach Central, 6-6, 290
2. Johnnie Dixon, WR, Dwyer, 5-11, 192
Final three: Alabama, Miami, Ohio State
Visits: NC State (Sept. 6), Arkansas (Sept. 13), Ohio State (Sept. 28), Alabama (Nov. 8)
Window shopping: The Arkansas trip is mostly because of his teammates — Shawn Boone, Ezra Saffold and Clint Stephens — who are interested in the Razorbacks. They’ll see Arkansas take on Southern Miss in the third game of Bret Bielema’s tenure in Fayetteville. The Ohio State trip should be a treat — the Buckeyes are playing reigning Big Ten champs Wisconsin. But no trip will have more buzz than Dixon’s November visit to Bama, where the Crimson Tide will take on LSU.
3. Travis Rudolph, WR, Cardinal Newman, 6-0, 188
Final five: Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, Vanderbilt
Visits: None set.
Window shopping: Rudolph said his official visits this fall may not align with his final five. He’s already taken unofficial visits to Alabama and FSU.
4. Sharieff Rhaheed, LB, Fort Pierce Central, 6-2, 202
Favorites: Louisville, Arkansas, Oregon
Visits: Arkansas (Aug. 31?), Oregon (Oct. 26)
Window shopping: Rhaheed, who will miss the first few weeks of the high school season after wrist surgery, doesn’t have a scholarship offer from Oregon, but he’ll be in Eugene on Oct. 26 for the Ducks’ game against UCLA. Louisville is the heavy favorite for Rhaheed. Not only did the Cards get a commitment from his FPC teammate Rashawn Shaw, they also hosted him on an unofficial visit at the end of June. FPC coach Josh Shaffer said he’s trying to coordinate an official visit to Arkansas over Labor Day weekend.
5. Marques Gayot, S, Park Vista, 6-2, 195
Visits: Arkansas, with more to come.
Window shopping: The Louisville commitment seems strong from conversations with Gayot and his dad. He traveled to Louisville in late July and it only firmed his feelings. He still plans to travel, though. He has an official visit planned for Arkansas on Sept. 28 with teammate Renard Cheren.
6. Darrell Langham, WR, Santaluces, 6-5, 190
Window shopping: His high school coach, Daryl Drinkwater, said Wednesday that Langham has no plans to make any visits. “He’s not interested in anyone else.”
7. Shawn Boone, DB, Dwyer, 5-10, 185
Favorites: Ohio State, N.C. State, Tennessee, FSU, Ole Miss, Arkansas
Visits: NC State (Sept. 6), Arkansas (Sept. 13), Ohio State (Sept. 27), Ole Miss (Nov. 8)
Window shopping: Arkansas gets that first visit, when Boone will travel with his teammates to Fayetteville. The Ohio State visit is a big one, especially if the Buckeyes can persuade Dixon. On his Nov. 8 trip to Oxford, Boone will see Ole Miss play Arkansas.
8. Rashawn Shaw, DE, Fort Pierce Central, 6-2, 228
Visits: Arkansas (Aug. 31?)
Window shopping: Shaw unofficially visited Louisville in June and committed two days later. He traveled to Arkansas in July and has 28 total offers. His high school coach, Josh Shaffer, said Wednesday he’s trying to finalize Shaw’s official visit to Arkansas over Labor Day weekend.
9. Adly Enoicy, WR, Atlantic, 6-5, 205
Window shopping: This is the most mysterious recruiting process in Palm Beach County. It’s unclear where Enoicy stands.
10. Clint Stephens, WR, Dwyer, 5-10, 175
Final three: Miami, Florida State, West Virginia
Visits: Arkansas (Sept. 13)
Window shopping: Arkansas is hosting Stephens and his Dwyer teammates, but Stephens recently told Rivals his final three includes FSU, Miami and West Virginia. NC State is still pursuing Stephens, too, but WVU seems to be the frontrunner.
