of Boone (Orlando, Fla.)
skyrocketed into national prominence last spring as a junior.
Noted more for his exploits as a running back in football, Bracy wound up recording the fastest time in the country during the track season by running the 100-meter dash in 10.28 seconds. Along the way, he won Florida state titles in the 100 and 200 and anchored the 4x100 relay to a third title. He also ran a wind-aided 10.05 hundred at the U.S. Junior Nationals.
The 5-foot-9, 167-pounder, who plans to accept a combination football-track scholarship to Florida State University, is the fastest recruit in the Class of 2012.
However, when it comes to shorter distances - say the 40-yard dash - we have to look first at Ron Darby

, who has a blazing best of 4.31 seconds. The 5-11, 180-pound cornerback, who is uncommitted, also has run the 100 in 10.41 and the 200 in 21.05.
