Eight Rising Star South Florida Prospects

This past fall was plagued with the ongoing pandemic and restrictions that have impacted all walks of life. With fall football having been played in limited capacity, some players were not fully able to showcase their talents. However, others were able to produce and even produce and showed out in Spring football.

This list is meant to showcase five rising seniors and three underclassmen that showed out in games that we were able to attend.

Note: This list will only feature players who will play in the 2021 fall season.


Shemar Stewart

Monsignor Pace High School

Class of 2022

Offers: LSU, Miami (FL), Ohio State +30

The Opa-Locka native is currently the seventh overall player in the country and has many South Florida fans hoping he stays home for College, but another dominant season could see him taking his talents to other power house programs.

This one's easy. Showcasing a pro frame at just 17 years old, Shemar Stewart is touted as a top-ten player in the class of 2022 and an elite high school prospect and it doesn’t take a scout to know why.

"Stewart has a way of impacting all facets of the game from his EDGE role. He sheds one-on-one blocks with ease and powers through double teams to get to the offensive backfield."

While we only got to watch Stewart play in an inter squad scrimmage, Pace’s offense does feature solid offensive talent that will compete for a State Championship with Stewart headlining the roster.

HUDL HIGHLIGHTS: Sophomore Season

Mason Taylor

Saint Thomas Aquinas High School

Class of 2022

Offers:Miami (FL), Texas A&M, Auburn, +16

Son of Hall of Fame defender Jason Taylor, Mason Taylor inherited his size and athletic ability and will look to continue to make his own path dominating on offense.

STA features talent year in and year out. Last year’s team featured two stud defensive ends who committed, and are currently attending, major Power-5 teams. However, no player stood out more to me in the teams playoff game against Venice than Mason Taylor. While we did not watch Saint Thomas’ spring game, he wowed enough to be in consideration.

"A new-age tight end that has the ability to run routes like a wideout, block like an offensive, and an overall mismatch on the field. "

The younger Taylor brother is out to make a name for himself on the opposite side of the ball from where his dad, Jason Taylor, carved a Hall-of-Fame football career out of. Standing at nearly 6-foot-5, Taylor is a massive player that runs routes like a wideout and is not worried about getting physical with a defender.

The 2021 iteration of the famous Saint Thomas Aquinas should feature an even more loaded roster compared to that of 2020, but Taylor should be a player to keep an eye on.


Jaylin Terzado

Champagnat Catholic High School

Class of 2022


With track-level speed, Terzado could be the piece that leads Champagnat to complete the three-peat as the 2A Florida State Champion.


In his first year with Champagnat, Jaylin Terzado played a secondary role being a part of a clustered wideout group featuring highly touted 2022 prospect Benson Prosper. Now as a rising senior, Terzado will key in as a major piece, and that was showcased in Champagnat’s spring game against the Jackson Generals.

"His elite speed is D1 ready and will have corners in his dust and safeties wondering where their help is."

The trio of Terzado, Prosper, and Shayon Walton combined for five scores on the day with Terzado leading the way with two. His speed will open the entire offense up during the fall, and he should be able to benefit from the added addition Prosper will draw.


Gabriel Herrera

Monsignor Pace High School

Class of 2022

A highly underrated linebacker prospect, Herrera will lead an extremely athletic and versatile Pace defense that has State Champion aspirations.  


Stewart is the best player and game changer on the Pace defense, but Gabriel Herrera is the leader. One coach described Hernandez as a, “coach on the field” talking about the rising senior as he makes the adjustments and makes sure all players are in the right place.

"In the right college system he's a poor-man's Luke Kuechly. His high football IQ, play between the numbers, and hit power leaves spectators saying "Oooo" on almost every play."

While Hernandez isn’t a top flight athlete, his high football IQ and game speed allows him to take away anything between the numbers. At Pace’s inter squad game, Herrera was named the “Sleef’s Player of the Game” after racking up what seemed to be tackles on every play.

He may not have an offer to his name, but if Herrera can keep up this level of play on a complete Pace roster, he should expect to have his hands full soon.


Jadin Belus

Champagnat Catholic High School

Class of 2022

A hard-nose football player that all coaches yearn for, Belus will attempt to make a name for himself at corner, as Champagnat aims for its third straight State Championship.


The first time I met Jadin Belus he was playing wideout at the Sleefs Savage camp so it was shocking seeing him at corner for Champagnat in their spring game. However, it wasn’t shocking seeing him play at a high level.

"With his fearless attitude, Belus should give wideouts issues all season and be a headache for running backs who think they'll be able to run him over."

Belus’ night was highlighted by a big hit on the Jackson running back that left the Traz Powell crowd in awe. Playing as the go-to corner in the Champagnat defense, Belus will have the chance to prove himself against D1 talent not just during the season, but in practice as well.

Being able to tackle is an important part of a corner's game, and Belus was the best of any I’ve watched over the past six months.


Christopher Brown

Somerset Academy Pembroke Pines

Class of 2023

A young player playing for a lesser known team, Brown is in store for a breakout 2023 that could raise his stock and his offer total.


A friend told me that he was a big fan of Christopher Brown after watching him play saying he exhibits a “smooth athleticism where it doesn’t even look like he’s trying.” Brown is the best player on a Somerset Academy team that could surprise some people.

"Silky smooth route runner playing both ways, expect CB6 to be Somerset's best player regardless of position this upcoming fall."

Playing both corner and wideout in the team’s controlled scrimmage, Brown had no issue getting open on offense and making big plays.

Brown is a classic “diamond in the rough” player in South Florida and could gain traction with a big Junior season.


Omarion Williams

North Miami High School

Class of 2023

After two straight years of roster turnaround and coaching changes, North Miami has a real talent in Williams that will need to be unlocked for the team to succeed.

Another player we didn’t watch this spring, but one we expect to have a major role this fall is North Miami running back Omarion “Mari” Williams. Williams stood out to me as a potential new age workhorse back.

"A 'video-game' type runner, Williams displays elusiveness and explosiveness needed in receiving backs, making him perfect for the modern spread offense."

He may not be the biggest running back, but he makes a play whenever he has the ball in his hands. Playing in the Pioneer's offense, Williams should be able to have a big season as both a receiver and a runner.


Adrian Posse

Monsignor Pace High School

Class of 2024

Offers:LSU, Florida, Georgia +4

Pro frame at the age of 14, Posse has the size and talent to become a name that NFL scouts will be keeping an eye on before he even hits his Junior season.


Adrian Posse is likely to end up going down as the most highly touted South Florida quarterback prospect as he’s already racked up 7 major offers before the end of his Freshman year.

"A giant freshman who has turned from a thrower to an all-around quarterback, he could go down as the most highly touted South Floridian Quarterback of the past 10-years."  

Watching Posse over the past few months he's grown as a quarterback and not just as a passer. He demonstrated the ability to get up to the line and adjust he offense while also being able to throw on the run and do his best to get away from Stewart.

Posse will still have plenty of time to grow at the position, but at 6-foot-4 he presents prototypical size that college and professional scouts salivate over.
