Platform Scout: Marc Henry @marchen44

Spring football is in heavy rotation around the country and high school football players are on the gridiron looking to elevate their profiles on the recruiting trail. The camp and showcase season has kicked off, along with the DR7 Road To The Crown National Tournament circuit, has provided the opportunity for athletes to showcase their skills to gain exposure and this has allowed players to get eyes on their talent. These opportunities enable them to get interest from colleges, invites to camp and could lead to scholarship offers. The mission and goal of The Platform is to #ExposeTheUnexposed and provide adequate coverage of athletes around the country giving them exposure. Here are five prospects in the state of Florida that have performed well this spring and should see their recruiting profiles rise heading into the fall.

 

Grant Conner | Class of 2025 | Quarterback | Winter Park High School | Twitter: @grant_conner3

Conner was one the most consistent performers this spring, he has a big arm, he can make all throws on the route tree and he can fit the football into small coverage windows. Grant saw his buzz rise this offseason with his stellar play at several tournaments, making big throws and showing that he has a gunslinger mentality with ability to see the field well. Conner had a visit to Toledo in March, as well camp invites to the Army Bowl Combine, the Elite 11 Regional Camp in Florida and the QB Challenge Skills camp. Grant has a high ceiling with the skill set to play the quarterback position at a high level. He should see his profile rise this spring and he is a must see prospect in Florida this spring.

 

Shemar McNair | Class of 2025 | Defensive Back| University Christian|  Twitter: @shemarmcnair_

McNair is ball hawk in the secondary, he has superb vision that leads him to the football, he has the speed to cover ground in a hurry on the backend and when he sees it he attacks it with controlled aggression. When you turn on the tape from the fall, he flashes showing a nose for the football, he can come down in the box on timed blitzes, making plays in the backfield and he is a sure tackler. Shemar has the skill set that college coaches covet at the safety position combined with great instincts and excellent ball skill, McNair is a must see prospect that programs should get eyes on. A recent off from Duquesne and interest from UCF and Tulane where he took a visit this spring, show that his recruitment is picking up steam and college programs are beginning to take notice.

 

Noah Chieffo | Class of 2026 | Wide Receiver | Venice High School |  Twitter: @luhhchief

Noah is a big body target at 6’5, he has an extended catch radius with good explosion off the line at the snap and his ability to run sharp routes enables him to get open early in coverage. He uses his lean frame well, showing the ability to body up defensive backs in close quarters to make grabs in heavy traffic and he is an explosive leaper who plays above the rim, allowing to win on the 50/50 jump balls. Noah tracks the well in flight and he is a matchup nightmare in the red zone. He has the skill set that makes him an attractive prospect and he is a player in Florida who programs should get eyes on this spring.

 

Jesse Harden | Class of 2026 | Wide Receiver | Spoto High School |Twitter: @Atr_UNO

Harden has an explosive get off at the line of scrimmage, he runs crisp routes and his ability to get open no matter the coverage were traits that flashed in his game. Harden is a big body target at 6’3 with an extended catch radius, he has large mitts that engulf the football and he attacks the ball with aggression. Harden has the skill set that college programs covet at the wide receiver position and he is a prospect in Florida who should see plenty of attention from college programs. Harden picked up offers from Syracuse, Toledo and East Carolina this offseason.

 

 

Treon Williams-Scott | Class of 2026 | Wide Receiver | Plant City | Twitter: @Treon717

Treon is an explosive playmaker, he is phonebooth quick, he has the ability to change directions quickly and he has the burst in the open field to make defenders miss in space. Williams-Scott is electric with the ball in his hands, he can cut on a dime and he is a player who you want to get the football to on a consistent basis. He tracks the ball well and has reliable strong hands that attack the football in flight. Treon landed an offer from Toledo recently and should see more schools come to the table this spring heading into the fall. Williams-Scott is a must see prospect in Florida who should see more attention on the recruiting trail heading into the fall season.
