Two underclassmen stand out

University School in Fort Lauderdale Florida is the defending state champions. It comes as no surprise then that the program is loaded with talent.

Not only are they loaded with 2014 prospects but also 2015 prospects. Not to mention, they might just have the top 2016 prospect in the country.

One 2015 prospect that is on the rise is running back Jordan Scarlett, who already holds 14 scholarship offers.

“Recruiting is going good for me right now,” Scarlett said. “It’s a blessing to be getting all of these offers and to be able to see all of the coaches come by.”

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Scarlett plans to use this summer to take visits around the country to see some of his top schools.

“I plan to visit some schools with Quincy Wilson, Richard Yeargin and Sam Bruce this summer,” Scarlett said. “I plan to go see UCF, Ohio State, Florida State and Florida. I’m not sure when we are going to Florida yet, but it will be this summer.”

Many football fans may remember the last name Bruce from several years ago in the NFL. 2016 prospect Sam Bruce’s father is Isaac Bruce, a former NFL receiver.

The 2016 receiver Sam Bruce is a 5-foot-7, 166-pound receiver who has already racked up four offers and is looking to hear from another in state school.

“Right now Clemson, Eastern Michigan, UCF and West Virginia have offered me,” Bruce said. “I haven’t had much contact with Florida right now but I’m looking forward to talking with them, hopefully soon.”

As Bruce’s teammate Jordan Scarlett said, the 2016 prospect will take several visits this summer including one to see Florida.
