First Coast High in Jacksonville, Fla., is home to multiple players who have a shot at being highly-recruited Division I-A prospects in the Class of 2008.
The same school that in recent years has produced current Florida Gators defensive back Reggie Lewis, linebacker Ryan Stamper and wide receiver Kenneth Tookes, Class of 2006 Auburn wide receiver signee Alex Rose and Class of 2007 South Carolina defensive back commits Jamire Williams and Arkee Smith will feature several prospects that should be among the best in North Florida for next year's class.
At first glance, linebacker Nigel Carr is the head of the class. The 6-foot-3, 230-pounder could play inside or outside linebacker. He has long arms and runs well.
Carr currently holds a written scholarship offer from South Carolina. His early list of schools includes the Gamecocks, Miami (Fla.), Florida State, Auburn, Clemson and South Florida.
Like Carr, Shaq Wilson is a member of the First Coast linebacking corps, could play inside or outside and currently holds a written offer from South Carolina. The 6-foot-1, 208-pounder has good speed, change of direction and athleticism and has the frame to grow into a 230-240-pounder.
Wilson likes Auburn, Clemson and Miami (Fla.) in addition to the Gamecocks.
Wide receiver Avis Commack wears No. 21 because he admires current Georgia Tech All-American Calvin Johnson. That comes as no surprise as the two are both tall receivers with good leaping ability and speed who can go up and get it.
It's no surprise that the 6-foot-4, 176-pounder likes Georgia Tech, along with Florida, Central Florida, North Carolina State and South Carolina at the moment.
Running back Jermaine Thomas claims a 4.4-second 40-yard dash and has the build of a Division I-A prospect at his position. He likes Tennessee, Central Florida, South Carolina and Miami (Fla.) early.
