The 2024 class is one of the more talented classes we've covered in recent memory. It seems that every athlete we cover here at Youth1 Media from the 2024 class is an elite talent with enormous potential to play at the collegiate level, and perhaps beyond.
Among the rising stars from the 2024 class is Frederick Gaskin III, who has become one of Florida's premier youth athletes.
"I play cornerback and running back, but I enjoy corner more," Gaskin told Youth1.com.
Standing at 5'8" 148 lbs., Gaskin is electric with the ball in his hands. Every time he gets the ball in his hands, he's a threat to break free for a big play. Gaskin is elusive when carrying the ball, as he's able to duck and dodge defends on his way to paydirt. His speed allows him to breakaway when he sees a crack in the defense.
Gaskin is just as impressive on the defensive side of the ball.
"Getting a chance to hit people," Gaskin said of his favorite part of playing football.
The Ocala, FL native thrives at the Cornerback spot where he can use his stellar instincts and keen awareness to impact the game. He shines in both pass defense and run support. He loves flying up on a ball-carrier and lay down a big hit.
"Knowledge of the game and awareness," Gaskin said of his strengths on the football field.
"I feel like I'm progressing good as a player on and off with my grades and getting in the weight room," he added.
Gaskin, who will be attending NextGen's The Show for the second time this summer, has earned his reputation as one of the elite talents from the 2024 class. He's dedicated to his craft and working to become the best he can be.
"I'm working to improve my strength," Gaskin said.
2024 RB/CB Frederick Gaskin III is proving to be an elite talent from the state of Florida. Look for him to make a big impact at NextGen's The Show, this summer.
