The city of Jacksonville is also blessed with an abundance of talent and one of the better prospects this season is Rashad Knight. Knight, 5-10 and 181 pounds, is from Trinity Christian. He's a standout on both sides of the ball and is being recruited to play cornerback.
"Spring is going really well," Knight said. "I am playing strong safety, receiver and running back. I am even playing on special teams. My goal is get 90 tackles and I want four interceptions. We are playing more passing teams this season so I think I can get it."
According to Knight he has scholarship offers from Michigan, Illinois, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, Maryland, Indiana, Minnesota and Michigan State. The Spartans were the last to offer.
