“While I did not commit to Miami for any coach, I can’t overlook the current situation,” he said in a screenshot he posted on Twitter.

As recruiting heats up, it’s time we get to know more about some of Palm Beach County’s prospects.

Each Thursday leading up to the football season, we will post a new Q&A with a different 2016 recruit. This week, we’ll focus on Santaluces linebacker Zach McCloud.

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.
