Ocean Lakes now has their second college commitment as Dakare Coston commits

Do you want an indication of how deep the talent pool was at Ocean Lakes last year? Dakare Coston is one of many players that will step into a starring role this fall. Last fall, he was down the depth chart, playing behind names such as Levontae Taylor, Tahj Capehart, and Anthony Womack.
Taylor went to Florida State. Capehart is a rising senior at Bishop Sullivan now, and he’s holding around 20 big time scholarship offers. Anthony Womack is now at James Madison.
This fall, players who backed up significantly talented players are getting their shot. One such player is wide receiver Dakare Coston. Without an extensive highlight reel, but with Division I ready size and talent, Coston has decided to commit to the United States Naval Academy, following in the steps of Ocean Lakes Class of 2016 running back Jalen Smith.
He received the offer from Assistant Coach Dan O’Brien earlier in the year, visited Annapolis in June and committed today.
“Once I went up on a visit, I enjoyed it a lot. The reason I chose the Naval Academy is because I thought about life after football. They have a remarkable program, great coaches and I wouldn’t want to be at any other place,” Coston explained.
Dakare had interest from from Tennessee, East Carolina and William and Mary. He was planning to camp at Tennessee this summer, but an injury prevented it. Now, he’s locked in on the Naval Academy.
At 6 feet and 180 pounds, Coston will be a good-sized corner for the Midshipmen. The Naval Academy gets their second local commitment for their recruiting class of 2017. Coston follows in the steps of Heritage High School linebacker and quarterback Jeremiah Boyd, who committed to Navy last month.
