You can already tell that spring football is in the air. The heat and humidity - along with those summer-like thunderstorms - sets the mood for the next next six weeks.

As many are still taking part in other sports -  finishing up the spring - there are others who have not stopped playing football - in some form.

With 7-on-7 events and combines winding down, ushering in spring football, the focus is now squarely on a sport that will determine futures of so many, as they look for a college scholarship to get an education and play a sport that they so much love.

It’s this time of year that you find out a lot about a student/athlete. The next few months is where that dedication and that “never rest” mentality will end up working out.

In the last two weeks before the start of spring - athletes are still turning heads, getting ready for the coming weeks when college coaches will set their eyes directly on area prospects, further enhancing an opportunity of being noticed.

Every Thursday during the off season, we will bring you three prospects who are out there - but talented young men that need to be watched closer.

2019- Jarvis Brownlee, Jr., CB/SS, 6-0, 170, Miami Carol City. As a member of the South Florida Express, here is a quality talent that has blown up the past four months - but if you have watched him play in the past - it should come as no surprise. A gifted secondary standout who will get in your pocket to cover you and bring some physicality to the Chiefs’ defense - as they make a solid run to state. 

Having watched him since his days at Hallandale, this is another in a long line of elite football players that this program continues to add.

2019 - Cairiq Rackley, QB, 6-1, 175, Miami Palmetto. Yet another elite football talent who brings so much to the table - and has since he started playing at the high school level with Killian. Throws the ball very well and has plenty of quickness to balance the offensive attack. Is considered one of the more athletic run/pass prospects around. Big time potential as a quarterback who is still balancing his first love, baseball, where he is an amazing talent.

While many continue to play two sports in college - it may be a decision that Cairiq will have to make over the next year or so. Every would love to have that decision to make!

2019 - Dominic Tianga, RB/LB, 5-10, 217, Pembroke Pines West Broward. The great thing about this young man is that while he may be under the radar to some, being totally hidden when you dominate on both sides of the ball and rarely come off the field is impossible - as college coaches are already trying to sneak this unique and very talented student/athlete onto their campus. A very strong and quick runner who is pound-for-pound as rugged and tough as you will find at the high school level. While Dominic gets good grades in the classroom and never stops competing in other physical sports, he will always be in the spotlight, and this spring, more and more college coaches will watch and appreciate what Bobcat fans saw last season, during a district championship year.
