Stranahan (FL) has Intriguing 2015 Class

Stranahan High, located near downtown Ft. Lauderdale, has several outstanding junior prospects that will help put them back on the map next season. In addition to rising stars on defense in S Richie Kittles and DE Kirk Livingstone, WR Marvin Robinson and QB Brevet Killett will be integral pieces on offense on the road back to respectability.

2015 WR Marvin Robinson (6’4, 170, 4.49) is an under-the-radar prospect that recorded 36 catches, 559 yards, and three touchdowns last season. Illinois, Auburn, Tennessee, South Florida, Miami, Georgia Tech, Georgia St., Western Michigan, and Akron have requested his film.

Robinson claims no verbal offers currently, but his talent will dictate otherwise in the near future.

The big wideout shared what he feels is the strength of his game.

“I think my focus on and off the field is invaluable to me. On the field, every time the ball is thrown to me, my goal is to never let it hit the ground.”

Stranahan’s talented junior talked about what will be important in his recruitment.

“I’d like to be able to compete for playing time my freshman year and I’d prefer to stay closer to home to play college football.”

Now that his junior campaign is over, Robinson will stay in shape running track, more specifically the 4x100M relay and 100M.

“I think running track will help me get off the line quicker and increase my overall speed.”

Head coach Willie Hill says of Robinson: “All the programs he listed have requested his film from me. I’m planning on making sure he gets out to an Auburn camp this summer with a couple of other Stranahan prospects,” he said. “As a prospect, he’s running in the high 4.4’s, with a chance to run in the high 4.3’s with good coaching. He made a lot of clutch 3rd down catches and can go across the middle no problem, very sure-handed. We’re going to put some weight on him over the offseason. I think Marvin can be the best wideout in Broward next season. I’m excited to have him back.”

Moving in from Gibbs HS in St. Petersburg, Brevet Killett (6’2, 215, 4.6) is a dual-threat quarterback that’s hearing from North Texas, Syracuse, and Morgan St. Last season, he threw for 1465 yards and 16 touchdowns behind a 60% completion rate. On the ground, he ran for 162 yards and registered another six scores.

The talented junior spoke about his interest thus far.

“I sent my tape to Morgan St. and they liked it a lot. They’re going through a coaching change, so the staff in place was hesitant to offer. We’ll see in a few weeks if the new staff will be interested.

“Things are on hold at North Texas, too. The coach I sent my film to said he didn’t know where he would be for next season, so I have to wait that situation out as well.

“Coach Hill told Syracuse about me and he told me they liked my film, so hopefully I start to hear from them soon.”

Killett’s offseason plans include hitting the weight room hard and running track.

“I’ll run the 100M, 200M, 400M, and maybe high jump,” he said. “I’m all set to work with Ken Mastrole and I’ll participate in all the local camps and combines and maybe travel to attend FSU’s camp again.”

Killett is impressed with the level of talent he’ll be working with at Stranahan next season.

“The guys are unbelievable. There’s a lot of talent that nobody even knows about yet, but the skill guys are fast and physical.”

Stranahan’s new signal-caller boasts a 4.1 GPA and plans to enroll early at the program that recruits him the hardest.
