http://www.hudl.com/athlete/o/1189994/highlights/54135376Hey guys! Just updating those interested from the previous posts. Karan is off to a good start thus far this season. He rushed for 196 yards on 36 carries against 7A Palmetto. He followed that performance up with 215 yards on 21 carries against Bayshore High in Bradenton. Karan had touchdown runs of 85 yards and 15 yards. This week we have crosstown rival Booker High. Tennessee has offered and the trio of Florida power schools are picking up interest......but Karan keeps cheesing about Michigan :) Karan also holds a 4.0 GPA in honors classes which is pretty impressive. I have a few more clips from his Spring Game and a few runs from the Bayshore game. I'll be making a new premium highlight soon on Hudl! Heading up to the UTL2 this weekend and going to talk face to face with Chris Singletary....so hopefully that will progress things. Check out the film and feel free to comment fellas! Go Blue!!!!
Karan Higdon 2015 RB Sarasota Florida 5ft10 185lbs
... but the balance he showed after running into his own teammate on that first clip was actually quite impressive.
I know nothing about recruiting, but those clips looked good.
Title IX, baby!!
I though it was a post for a girl doing something cool too.
We have a guy on our team named Taco.
is Taco a girl, too?
My specific position group is the WRs but due to our RB coach moving to GA...I work with Karan a lot as well. Good kid.
My kids go to Newsome!
Do you live in FishHawk? I do, moved in in June. I have a daughter at Newsome. Maybe Beers and the game on any given Sat?
Ya if I ever get down there! My kids live in Fishhawk with their mother. I'm still up in Michigan! I love Fishhawk though...
Hey, I work your games for Gulf Coast Officals Assoc. I will seek you out for a Mgo fist bump next Riverview game.
I had your Freshman 2 weeks in a row, they are bad..not bad, but seem disorganized. I could have thrown a delay of game on every single play.
He looks like a really good prospect. Best of luck to you guys with your season.
What class is Sarasota in? Do you guys play any teams in Tallahassee this year? I live in Tallahassee and pay attention to Lincoln and Godby, both state powers.
We are 8A and we play Venice...East Lake (off the schedule this year) Manatee and Southeast to name a few. We have been a historical powerhouse that has been down in recent years. We getting back though. ..and Karan is a BIG reason why.
So has Michigan shown any interest in him?
Highlights looked pretty good. Runs hard and with power.
but what's the origin of Karan's interest in Michigan? Does he have relatives up here?
I find Silverlight-only sites ... interesting. That's a questionable design decision. (I have no plans to install that software.)
I seem to have a lot of problems with Silverlight on my mac. What is the deal on that?
He is pretty well known down here and the surrounding states. Chris Singletary will be aware of him soon though. His interest in Michigan sparked after doing some research on the program and a few tidbits ive been able to share with him.
would certainly find UM a great academic experience. However, with Harris in the fold already, the question is whether we're considering taking another RB in the '15 class.
Regardless, good luck to him this season.
Nice highlights on Hudl. As others said, he looks like he has great instincts and can find just about any hole left to him, not to mention some pretty good speed - seems like he almost doesn't need to be past the second level to be pretty much gone.
It's a spring game. Lets see some season film.
Hudl has his entire sophomore film and a few runs from our first game in his junior film.
Do we have space for him, I am no scout, but he does look good. What do I know. We have Harris in 2015, and a small class. Would love to have him. Are we still in on Patrick too?
First, people have different names. I'm sure you're not the first person to notice that OH GOD HIS NAME LOOKS LIKE KAREN WHICH IS A NAME FOR A GIRL TRADITIONALLY.
Second, thanks for sharing updates about this kid in your program, '14. I've noticed you've posted about him before and about other things happening in your coaching career. Keep developing kids, encouraging them academically, and spreading the good word about our program.
Keep us updated, especially with the conversation with Singleton.
Michigan is obviously in a great position recruiting wise at back. Nebraska and Florida have been calling this week. I just want to get him a look. He is a stud with great character and drive. Could really develop into a starting BCS back imho.

Its Karan. Hes a great kid and im just trying to expose him to football that I know and trust. Ive camped him at FSU where I played and hes done well. I would love to camp him at Michigan. I just want him to get the full gambit of whats out there and Michigan is just a special place that I will always push to any kid I feel talented enough to play there. FSU is obviously a special place to me but the fact that ive never waivered in my love for Michigan despite playing for a power program in FSU stands out to him and makes him want to see whats behind the tradition history and lore of Michigan football. Doesnt hurt that Karan is friends with George Campbell ealso lol. Thanks fellas and Ill share his next premium highlight with you all once I make it!
When did you play at FSU? I've been in Tallahassee since '88.
I was lucky enough to play for coach Bowden and be there for the torch passing unto Jimbo. Great times! Never cracked better than second string at corner and safety and got all my burn on special teams. Great experience overall and I can tell you that despite the negative perception. ..FSU is an outstanding school and athletic environment. Im blessed to be a an FSU football alum and genuine Michigan fan!
I only clicked bc I thought Karan was a girl. I'm now disappointed?
Looks fast and solid. Best of luck.
