Beginning Monday, Jovan Dewitt will spend much of the next six weeks traversing Broward County, Fla., visiting between six and eight high schools per trip to meet with football players and their coaches. It’s a lot to keep track of. “It’s usually around 60-some high schools I go visit on any given couple-week period,” said Dewitt, whose assigned recruiting areas as a member of the UCF football coaching staff are greater Fort Lauderdale and a sliver of Atlanta. “Some schools will have 10 or 12 kids, some schools will have 20 kids I have to know about, some schools will only have one or two.” According to NCAA Research, high school football players in Florida earn the most college scholarships, per capita, of any state. Dewitt is expected to know every FBS-worthy player in Broward County’s pool and beyond, and the list will grow by the end of the NCAA’s spring evaluation period on May 31. Dewitt understands this, which is why a couple years ago he created a phone app to make the task more manageable. – Daniel Uthman, usatoday.com – Read More
