Recruiting: American Heritage’s Lawrence Graham commits to FAU

  • 7:10 pm Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015 by Anthony Chiang

Florida Atlantic continued its recruiting success in Palm Beach County.

American Heritage linebacker Lawrence Graham verbally committed to the Owls on Wednesday. The two-star recruit chose FAU over schools like Army and Colorado State.

“I just really appreciate everything FAU has to offer me,” Graham said. “It’s right in my backyard.”

The 5-foot-10, 214 pound Graham became the first Palm Beach County player to join FAU’s 2016 recruiting class. But if his commitment sticks, he would join the six county players who were part of the Owls’ 2015 recruiting class under head coach Charlie Partridge.

Ahmmon Richards

Each weekday leading up to the start of spring practice, we have released a new player from the top 10 of our Class of 2016 Big Board, breaking down each player’s game with an interactive graphic. Today, we’ve reached the top spot with Ahmmon Richards, a wide receiver at Wellington.

A tough receiver with tremendous athletic ability, Richards can make plays all over the field and isn’t afraid to catch the ball in traffic. While his offensive numbers were exceptional, he’s also an excellent defensive player who recorded five interceptions last season.

Zach McCloud

Each weekday leading up to the start of spring practice, we’ll release a new player from the top 10 of our Class of 2016 Big Board and break down his game with an interactive graphic. Today, it’s No. 2, Zach McCloud, a linebacker at Santaluces.

This guy is a flat-out playmaker. He’s stellar against the run and he can cover backs and tight ends, too. But McCloud does his best work when he’s able to square up and hit somebody. You won’t find many linebackers who hit harder than McCloud.

At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, Johnson is a big target who gives opposing defenses plenty of problems. His combination of size and athleticism has college coaches drooling over his potential. Right now, Johnson seems like he’s confident he will end up at Florida after an eventful recruiting process that included two decommitments. But he’s keeping [More]
