#Bahamian prep prospects continue to garner attention for their performance on the gridiron at programmes in South Florida.

#The Miami Jackson Generals look to improve to above .500 in tonight’s District matchup against LaSalle, but one of the main storylines emerging out of the programme recently has been the sucess of its Bahamian players on both sides of the ball.

#Defensive back Kaleb Barnett has already committed to an NCAA Divison I programme while teammates Jamal McKinney-Flowers and Raynor Andrews look to follow suit.

#McKinney-Flowers is a 6’0” 185 pound defensive back who has been heralded for his speed and physical style of play. A senior for the Generals, he has also posted a time of 10.66 secs in the 100m. McKinney-Flowers has received an offer thus far from the Arkanas State Red Wolves.

#Junior offensive lineman Raynor Andrews stands 6’6” 310 pounds and has yet to receive official offers, but he recently took an official visit to Rutgers University.

#In July, Barnett, a 5’11” defensive back announced his commitment to the Temple Owls football programme for the Fall 2023 season. Barnett is also a 100m sprinter who has turned in a time of 10.7 secs.

#“My high school coach said I have a great wingspan for a corner. I’ll be able to stop and get a lot of picks,” Barnett told OwlsDaily, “Coaches want me to play every position because of my athletic ability.”

#The Temple staff look forward to Barnett’s athletic ability in the defensive backfield.

#“Coach Jules and Coach Drayton said they like my speed,” Barnett said. “If I get beat on a route, I’m able to catch up very quick. And my height for a high school cornerback is good, especially how I’m still growing. I’ll be able to play multiple positions on the field.”

#Florida International, Florida Atlantic, and Charlotte were all involved in the recruiting process for Barnett.
