Independence has even more talent

Florida picked up a commitment last week from Charlotte (N.C.) Independence cornerback Victor Hampton. The school features even more talent than him according to assistant coach Josh Kranish.
Another player to watch is 5-foot-11, 185-pound safety Jeremy Iglesi.
"He's getting interest from all over the ACC and SEC in the surrounding area, he hasn't gotten any offers yet," he said. "HE does want to stay local and likes South Carolina and NC State."
What stands out about Iglesi?
"The way he plays the ball and is always around the pile that's his biggest ability," he said. "He's got good aggressiveness and plays to the whistle. His speed is the biggest issue, but it's good enough to play strong safety.
"He's also a good student with 3.7 GPA. He is one of those that you love to coach. He covers the entire field."
Meanwhile, undersized quarterback Anthony Carrothers is the other player to keep an eye.
"He's only 5-foot-7, 180-pounds," he said. "He's our leader. He came over as a sophomore and ran our offense. He is a quick learner and finished this past year with 812-yards rushing, 22 touchdowns rushing, 3,844-yards passing and 35 touchdowns passing. He accounted for 57 total touchdowns.
"The thing is his height. We've got to find a spread option team. He really wants to play quarterback."
Independence has at least one prospect to watch in 2011 too.
"We've got a powerful running back, Nyjee Fleming," he stated. "He's got a lowe center of gravity and runs really fast. He's a 5-foot-10, 180-pounder and is a natural running back. He has great straight ahead speed, he isn't as much a lateral guy. He's straight through the hole and accelerates.
"He's one of those every single team in the ACC and SEC is taking a flyer out on and wants him to come to camp."
