Team recruiting capsule: Armwood loaded

8/14/2012

During the next couple of weeks there will be several recruiting capsules of Florida's top programs.

School: Armwood (Seffner, Fla.)

Head coach: Sean Callahan

2011 record: 0-15 (15-0 on-field record was vacated by FHSAA when Armwood was found guilty of transfer violations)

ESPN 150/300 prospects: Leon McQuay III (No. 3 S, No. 40 overall); Alvin Bailey (No. 6 ATH, No. 69 overall)

Top underclassmen: 2014 DB Kyle Gibson (6-1, 175); 2015 DL Byron Cowart (6-4, 240)

Spotlight prospect: Four-star quarterback Daryl Richardson is one of two four-star quarterbacks in the nation that has not committed to a program. While no one questions Richardson's physical talent, the 6-foot-5, 240-pound senior still needs to prove that it can translate to the field. "I think Daryl hears a lot of chatter about him moving positions and maybe becoming a tight end or something, and that has motivated him a little bit," said Armwood head coach Sean Callahan. "There's no question that he could do great things as a quarterback, but he has to want to do great things. We're going to try to put him in a position to make it happen." Richardson's offers include Ole Miss, Tennessee, South Florida and Missouri.

Other recruiting news: Offensive lineman Aaron Evans, who transferred to Armwood from Seffner (Fla.) Christian in the offseason, committed to UCF in June. The Knights have also been at the top of the list for Bailey, along with Georgia, Michigan and Florida State. McQuay was schedule to make his announcement last week with hints that USC would win out over Michigan and Vanderbilt, but he decided to postpone his decision until later in the season. Callahan predicts Armwood will have between 6-8 prospects sign with FBS schools in February.
