PLAYER: Tedarrell Slaton, Jr.
SCHOOL: Plantation American Heritage
SCOUTING: It’s hard to believe that his final season is here – and after watching him from the first time he came out for the football team, this is an athlete who definitely has turned out to be a quality football player and has matured into a prospect that everyone is coveting. Because basketball has been such a huge influence in his life, this impressive young man found a way to combine the skill and athleticism needed to play basketball – with the mental tough attitude to compete against some of the elite football players in the country. No matter who the Patriots have lined up against, here is a talent who always more than held his own – and continues to learn plenty about the position and the sport. Over the next few years – as he learns more and more about the position – there is no telling how dominant he can be. Slaton has had dozens and dozens of schools anxious to get him on their line. The process continues.
