The state of Florida is known for speed, elusiveness, and big play abilty and one prospect that fits all three categories is waiting for his turn on the recruiting trail. Deerfield Beach's Aeron McNeal is one of the most explosive players in South Florida.


Analysis: Aeron McNeal has flown under the radar because of teammate Brandon Powell. Powell, a Miami commit, has attracted widespread attention, but McNeal has not been so lucky. The two running backs are similar size and have produced at a similar level at Deerfield Beach.

McNeal is an ideal fit in a spread type offense due to his ability to put his foot in the ground and cut on a dime as well as his sub 4.5 speed. He reaches top speed as quickly as any prospect in Florida and is a big play waiting to happen. While on the short side (5-foot-8) he has some strength on his frame (175-pounds) and is tough inside runner that can bounce off contact. While he does not get a ton of opportunity in the passing game, McNeal has excellent hands and can spread out to the slot where he could be a terror in space.

Deerfield Beach is off to a hot start in 2013 with a pair of blow-out victories over neighborhood rivals Ely and Northeast, McNeal seems poised for a big senior season and Deerfield Beach is a team to watch.
