A player that is emerging in Dade County is Edwin Gelin, an athlete from Hialeah High School. Gelin, who is 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, already has three scholarship offers.
Edwin Gelin told FlaRecruiting.com that numerous colleges came by Hialeah High School to watch him practice during May and that at least 10 coaches called him at home. He received calls from Florida State, Florida, UCF, Northwestern, Georgia, Rutgers, Troy State including several others. Gelin said he had three scholarship offers at this early point.
"I've been offered by Rutgers, Georgia, and Northwestern," Gelin said.
Gelin is taking a wide-open approach to the recruiting process.
"No, I don't have any favorites yet," he replied when asked if he had any school preferences. "I'll go just anywhere that I'll feel comfortable at."
Edwin also has a busy camp schedule this summer. He said he plans to attend football camps at Georgia, Auburn, Florida, South Florida, Rutgers, UCF, and Florida International.
Gelin plays several different positions at Hialeah including wide receiver and free safety. He said it varied from school to school regarding which position they would prefer him to play in college. As a junior, Gelin caught 22 passes for 700 yards and 8 touchdowns playing WR, and on defense he recorded 52 tackles and 4 interceptions.
Gelin, who runs a 4.56 forty-yard dash, was named second team All-Dade last year. He holds a 2.5 grade point average and is currently waiting for his test results. Gelin doesn't think he will be making a decision early.
"I'm going to take all my visits and weigh my offers," Gelin said.
