Four Star Safety Announces Top Three Schools
Four-star class of 2023 safety Makari Vickers is down to his top three schools: Oklahoma, Michigan, and Alabama.
The Tallahassee, Fla., native ranks in at No. 115 nationally, No. 6 in safeties, and No. 23 in Florida in his recruiting class, according to 247Sports.
"A natural playmaker on the backend with ball skills that is quick to read and diagnose. Impressive open-field tackler for someone his age that will strike ball carriers and wrap up. Looser hips allow him to get east-west better than most his size. Understands how to fight through blocks out on the perimeter or in the ally and make a stop," said southeast recruiting analyst for 247Sports Andrew Ivins.
According to 247Sports, Vickers picked up 68 tackles, broke up eight passes, forced two fumbles, and picked off two balls last season. He also saw time as a wide receiver, catching 12 passes for 181 yards and three touchdowns.
Vickers played for St. John Paul's Catholic High School. Last year, the Panthers went 9-3 and ended its season in the second round the 2A Florida state playoffs with a 44-7 loss to Trinity Christian. However, he transferred this summer to Robert F Munroe Day School to finish his high school career, a program that made the regional finals in the state playoffs in 2021.
Since the upcoming senior received his offer in November of 2020, he has attended junior day, and had both an official and unofficial visit to the Capstone.
