Here are five more top prospects from the Massachusetts high school class of 2019. As always these are in no particular order as we will continue to rank the class at a later date.
Spencer Aronson – Holliston High School – RB/CB/KR – Aronson is a tremendous athlete who literally lines up all over the field. Standing 6’2” and 190 pounds with elite speed and quickness he is utilized as a running back, as a quarterback, as a wide/slot receiver, as a defensive back and as a punt returner. Also a top basketball player Aronson makes big plays on both sides of the ball even throwing for a touchdown last season. Could project as either a receiver or defensive back given his great hands that go along with his speed and quickness.
Connor Peterson – Franklin High School / Tabor Academy – WR/TE – An athletic wide receiver / tight end who stands 6’5” and 195 pounds and displays a similar game as that of 2018 Duke commit Jake Bobo. Also a top basketball prospect who helped lead Franklin High School to the Division 1 State championship game. Very good hands and runs well for such a big receiver but he is also physical enough to get separation and to block. Peterson will re-class to 2019 with his move over to Tabor Academy next fall where Peterson will also be teamed up with top prospects Chris Herren, Jr. and Noah Fernandes on the Tabor basketball team.
Lewis Cine – Everett High School – FS – Cine is a hard-hitting free safety who goes 6’2” and 175 pounds. Played a key role in the Everett High School defensive backfield on their way to the Division 1 State championship. Also a top track athlete with great speed but his physical presence stopping the run game and patrolling the secondary is what sets him apart as one of the best defensive backs in the 2019 class.
Patrick Flaherty – Governor’s Academy – OLB – Flaherty is an all ISL first team linebacker who stands 6’2” and 194 pounds. A quick and physical outside linebacker who reads plays well, aggressively fills running gaps and also gets after the quarterback. Athletic enough to drop into coverage but he does his best work coming off the edge and disrupting plays in the backfield.
Patrick Conroy – Reading Memorial High School – SS – Conroy goes 6’2” and 190 pounds and plays with a great motor and excellent speed. Diagnoses plays quickly from the defensive backfield which allows him to drop into coverage or to move up to help stop the run. Also plays on special teams but his game instincts and his physical defensive play helped get Reading all the way to the Division 1A State championship game.
