Miami (Fla.) Coral Reef athlete Malcolm Munroe can do a lot of things on the football field. The versatile prospect is a possibility at receiver, outside linebacker, safety or even as a pass-rushing weakside defensive end at the next level.
The 6-foot-4, 206 pounder has a favorite position.
"My favorite position is outside linebacker," he said. "You can play inside the box and outside the box and do a lot of different things, make a lot of different plays."
Munroe is getting early attention from a number of programs and an early favorite has emerged.
"UCF, North Carolina, South Carolina and South Florida all have been showing interest," Munroe said. "UCF has been showing me the most interest. They would be in the lead right now."
An unofficial visit to Orlando during the fall has put the Golden Knights on top.
"During the fall I went up there and they played Rice," he said. "I really liked it. The coaches were really up front with me and the people treated me real nice."
Munroe said that there are several things he will be looking at closely before he makes a decision on which college to attend.
"The depth chart, the coaches and the potential of the program all will be important factors for me," he said.
Munroe, whose brother Dorian Munroe plays at the University of Florida, has academic goals in addition to his athletic ones.
"I want to major in biotechnology or sports medicine," he said.
Munroe attended the Rivals.com Fort Lauderdale Junior Day last Sunday at Northeast High School in Oakland Park, Fla.
