Waters Showing Skills
Herbert Waters is attracting recruiting attention in the state of Florida, and the Homestead athlete is also drawing serious recruiting attention following an impressive junior season. Although Waters stars at quarterback, he projects as a wide receiver at the next level. "I had a pretty good year as a junior, and I did well mostly at quarterback," Waters stated. "I played wide receiver too, and next I will be playing free safety. I believe I will be a wide receiver at the college level, where I can use my speed. I was recently timed at 4.51 in the forty-yard dash." College recruiters have taken notice, and Waters is already hearing from several top-notch programs, including the three in-state powers. "I don't have any offers yet to my knowledge, but I'm hearing from Florida, Miami, LSU, Purdue, UCF and Florida State," he added. "My two favorite schools would be Florida and Miami. I have a teammate at Florida right now, Darrin Kitchens, and he loves it up there. I know the tradition is great and I'm looking forward to visiting there at some point." "Miami is the school I grew up rooting for, and I've met (assistant coach) Mike Barrow and like him a lot," he continued. "I haven't met any of the new coaches yet, but I'm hearing great things. They also recruited one of my teammates, Ricardo Williams, so that's cool. There's a lot of excitement about the program right now, and I think things will be great under Coach (Al) Golden." Waters, who will be playing in 7on7 competition for the defending national champion South Florida Express, discussed his strengths on the football field, and what areas he's hoping to improve upon. "I think my hands are my greatest strength, along with my speed," he explained. "I want to concentrate on running better routes, and 7on7 is a great way to get better. I expect to be a better player next year, and I'm working hard to get stronger."
