On Thursday evening, New Smyrna Beach (Fla.) wide receiver Raheem Mostert played a huge role in leading the East All-Star squad over the West All-Star Squad 34-9 at the Central Florida All-Star Game.
"We won because we came out hard after having some trouble early on there," Mostert said. "We stuck with it and we won."
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound wide receiver had three receptions for nearly 100 yards, which would have been even more if a holding penalty didn't nullify a 41-yard touchdown reception. He returned a kickoff for a 94-yard touchdown on his way to winning game MVP honors. He also had a pair of tackles on special teams.

"I wanted to do everything," Mostert said. "I wanted to contribute in every way possible."
Mostert's offer list has expanded a good bit since his senior season concluded. He holds offers from Illinois, Florida Atlantic, Southern Miss, Bethune-Cookman, Purdue, Middle Tennessee, Marshall, Navy, Wake Forest, and USF. At this time, he has two official visit destinations in mind.
"I am taking all of my visits in January," Mostert said. "I am going to Purdue on the 21st and Marshall on the 28th. I plan to take a couple other visits but I am not sure where yet."
While he is interested in seeing a number of schools, he admits one is kind of standing out at this point.
"Purdue actually," Mostert said. "They recruit a lot of Florida guys. They have come in and recruited me a lot. I just like them a lot."
It doesn't hurt that the Boilermaker's have also showed a lot of interest in Mostert's teammate, running back Telvin Hooks.
At this time, Mostert expects his final decision to come at the very end of the recruiting calendar.
"It will be Signing Day," Mostert said.
