Glades Central offensive tackle Jah’Shaun Seider didn’t have to think about it for too long.

“I committed right then and there on the spot,” said Jah’Shaun, who will be a senior this fall. “It’s right for me.”

  • 6:33 pm Sunday, July 20th, 2014 by Anthony Chiang

After returning to Palm Beach County, the 2015 Dwyer cornerback (see his Hudl tape here) narrowed his list to Rutgers and Bowling Green. On Friday, Adams (5-foot-11, 175 pounds) made his decision and verbally committed to Rutgers.

Just nine days before Kevin Bronson planned to report to Virginia Tech, he was forced to change his plans.

Hokies coaches informed the former Village Academy defensive end that he did not qualify due to his test scores this past Friday. Although Bronson knew his test scores were not up to the university’s standards, he was made to believe it wouldn’t be an issue.

“Virginia Tech did make it known that there was a possibility head coach Frank Beamer would have to go in front of a committee to speak on behalf of Kevin,” Village Academy coach Don Hanna said. “But not [More]

  • 12:06 pm Tuesday, July 1st, 2014 by Anthony Chiang

Although Tevon Coney narrowed his list to 10 schools in June, two programs stand alone in his eyes.

“I’m still pretty open to all of the schools in my top 10, but I like Florida and Notre Dame the most,” Coney said.

The four-star Palm Beach Gardens linebacker was blown away on his unofficial visit to Notre Dame on June 19. The Fighting Irish were not among Coney’s favorites before the trip, but that quickly changed.

Coney, who is the top rated player on the PBgametime Class of 2015 Big Board, pointed to academics and the football program’s tradition as the [More]

On Andrew Prince’s unofficial visit to Fordham last week, coaches told the Palm Beach Gardens wide receiver he would be a perfect fit in the team’s spread offense.

Prince agreed, verbally committing to Fordham on Saturday. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound prospect picked the Rams over Florida Tech and Air Force.

“They just said I would fit perfectly in their offense and I really liked it up there,” said Prince, who was recruited by Fordham offensive line coach Joel Rodriguez. “It’s like home.”

One of the main reasons for Prince’s decision involved his friend Kevin Anderson, who graduated from Boca Raton in 2013. Anderson, a [More]
