One of the top defensive back prospects from south Florida is Nick North. North, 6-0.5 and 187 pounds, is a safety prospect from Hollywood, Florida. Last season for MacArthur High School he recorded 60 tackles and five interceptions.
â€œMost of the time I played safety and corner,â€ North said. â€œI played a little outside linebacker and strong safety. Some schools like me at safety and while others like me at corner. I am a tall, rangy guy that can run. I play well in coverage and my teammates all say that I am a ball hawk.â€
Recently, North picked up his first two scholarship offers.
â€œWestern Kentucky and UCF offered me on the same day but WKU came in first. It was really exciting getting that first one. I never really knew if it would happen. They told me on the phone that they would offer and they did. That was cool.â€
According to North, Kansas State, Rutgers, Florida, FSU, Miami, Duke, Georgia Tech and others are all schools recruiting me hard that just havenâ€™t offered yet.
â€œMy favorite team right now is USC. I grew up watching USC and I am from southern California. Thatâ€™s really the team I like. I also like watching LSU. They play real physical ball.â€
