The "305" earned bragging rights as the Miami-Dade All-Stars topped the South Florida All-Stars 31-21 on Friday night at Traz Powell Stadium in the 18th Annual Nike South Florida All-Star Football game. An estimated 1,000 spectators saw the elite talents from the southern side of the Sunshine State compete in the Tournament of Champions Nike All-Star Game.
Jackson (Miami) wide receiver De'Andre Jasper earned game MVP honors following a performance that saw him tally six receptions for 104 yards and two touchdowns. Central (Palm Beach, Fla.) linebacker Gabriel Terry, a Miami commit, picked up the MVP award for the South Florida squad that consisted of players from Broward and Palm Beach counties. Terry notched 2.5 sacks and blocked a punt.
Glades Central (Belle Glade, Fla.) wideout Jaime Wilson hauled in a long scoring strike and had a strong game. It’s not a surprise that Wilson found the end zone coming off a senior season that saw him record 24 scores for the Raiders. Wilson is a sure-handed possession receiver who will thrive in a spread passing attack. Marshall, Memphis and Western Michigan have offered. Western Michigan leads for his services at the moment. However, Wake Forest is showing interest according to Wilson and he is hoping that Miami and Ohio State reach out before Signing Day.
McArthur (Hollywood, Fla.) WR Levitae Kelly enjoyed a great senior season, posting 60 grabs for 1,318 yards and 15 touchdowns. Kelly didn’t play organized high school ball until spring practice his junior year after sitting out due to grades. He has a lot of ability and raw talent. If he gets in the right program he could blossom into a solid contributor at the next level. The All-Broward first-teamer is starting to hear from FAU and FIU. He has interest in Florida State and Miami.
South Dade (Homestead, Fla.) RB Torry Clayton ripped off a 60-yard touchdown run and showed the speed that college coaches crave. The 5-10, 190-pounder has ten offers with three from BCS conferences. He rushed for over 1,100 yards and 15 scores during his senior campaign. Clayton has already visited West Virginia and is setting up other January visits.
Belen Jesuit (Miami, Fla.) tailback Imani Davis has been turning his heads since starting as a sophomore on the Wolverines' runner-up state championship team. Davis combines the speed and quickness to be a threat on the perimeter. Some schools have favorably compared him to former Florida running back Chris Rainey. Kansas State was the first BCS program to offer. Ohio State has recently checked in and he is hoping for an offer. He likes the coaching staff and the Buckeye tradition. Texas Tech and Northwestern also came by his school recently, but have yet to offer.
Jasper was the best offensive player on the talent-rich Miami roster. Jasper really elevated his game in the contest -- constantly making plays and stretching the field vertically. A clutch 29-yard touchdown reception with 3:30 left in the game saw him beat double-coverage and cement the victory for his team. Jasper does a good job eating up the cushion of opposing defensive backs coming out of his breaks. He is quicker than fast, but has above-average speed. He favors Auburn, FIU and Marshall. At 5-10, 175-pounds he fits the role of a slot receiver and return man. He has tripped to Marshall and has a visit to FIU slated for January 6.
Northwestern (Miami, Fla.) DE Eric Kinsey comes in at 6-3, 230-pounds and has the frame to be a combo rush end and outside 'backer depending on the defensive scheme at the next level. Kinsey named a top three of Cincinnati, Georgia and West Virginia. The Dawgs recently started showing interest, but are still evaluating him. Connecticut and Louisville are on his list of official visitors, but he hasn’t set up those dates. The Hurricanes are still a school of interest and the double-digit sack artist wouldn’t mind staying close to home.
Braddock (Miami, Fla.) OL Robert Conyers is arguably the top offensive line prospect in Dade County for the 2012 class. Ole Miss recently offered and he likes the coaching staff. His top four consists of Duke, Ole Miss, South Florida and Wake Forest. FIU is also in the mix and they were one of the first to offer the 6-5, 280-pound tackle. He has visited Duke and South Florida and will schedule visits up until the last weekend of January before making a decision on Signing Day.
