#1Travis RudolphWR
West Palm Beach, FLCardinal Newman

Travis Rudolph went from the 19th ranked player in Florida (pre-season) to the top-ranked player – and he did it convincingly. It started at the Rivals100 Challenge in Chicago – where Rudolph impressed the analysts enough to gain him a fourth-star and jump him to the 153rd spot in the August rankings. From there it was a stellar season with the Cardinal Newman football team, taking them to the post-season in a tough district that featured American Heritage-Plantation and a first-round playoff game against Immokalee – minus their starting quarterback. Rudolph really made a lasting impression at the UnderArmour All America game – where he showed off his speed, his agility and his soft hands. Not only does he run clean routes, but he blocks downfield and has break-away speed.

Rudolph chose Florida State in St. Petersburg during the UnderArmour game and hasn't changed his mind – despite several pushes by Florida and others

#2Sony MichelRB
Plantation, FLAmerican Heritage

Since the eighth grade (2009) we have known of Sony Michel. He played four years at American Heritage (one year he sat out due to an injury) and has been dominant for four years. With legitimate 4.5 speed, Michel makes people miss in the open field and outruns defenders who appear to have the angle. But he doesn't' avoid collisions and is a powerful north-south runner. He will hit you up the middle for five yards, or hit the seam and take it to the house. At the beginning of the season, Michel was the top-rated player in Florida - and the only five-star. He lived up to the billing. About the only thing missing from Michel's trophy case was a state title and that happened this season. Now it's off to Georgia.

#3Dalvin CookRB
Miami, FLMiami Central

Batman and Robin - The Ranger and Tonto… Miami Central for three years had the most lethal backfield in football and Cook was a big part of it. So big that when teammate Joseph Yearby went down with a season-ending injury, Cook not only took his carries, he wore Yearby's number to honor his teammate. Cook was unstoppable in the Class 6A state title game against a pretty good Armwood defense that featured Rivals five-star DE Byron Cowart and FV100 member Kyle Gibson. Cook did that to almost every defense he faced for three years. His break-away speed and cutback moves are solid as they come. He flipped his commitment from Florida to Florida State and doesn't appear to be changing. He's the total package at running back - and shows great second-step speed in the open field.

#4Chad ThomasDE
Miami, FLBooker T. Washington

Unblockable - that was the first impression we had when watching Thomas against some very good offensive linemen in the UnderArmour practices. He is tall, strong and agile. He's also quick off the ball and uses his length to keep blockers away from his body. He's a sack-master and should be able to work his way into the defensive end early at Miami. Needs to develop a few more moves, but as he grows bigger and stronger - he will only get better. At 6-5, there's room on his frame to add about 15-20 pounds without hurting his speed. Off the edge - it's almost always a nightmare. The question we have is - what will he do when someone bigger, faster and stronger hits him back. That's where we see the need for new moves.

5 stars6'5"229Miami (FL)
#5Ermon LaneWR
Homestead, FLHomestead

Ermon Lane reminds us a lot of Florida State wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin. He high-points the ball incredibly well - using all of his long reach and fingertips. He catches the ball with his fingers - and has a very strong grip. His size (6-2, 172) is deceptive as he plays taller. Once he gets into a weight room and nutritional program, he'll pack his frame with about 20 more pounds if not more. His speed is deceptively fast, because of his leg length. He runs very clean routes and comes back to the ball. He's a former Florida commit and the Gators are pressing, but FSU appears to have the lead

#6Bo ScarbroughATH
Northport, ALTuscaloosa County

While Scarbrough only played one season of high school football in Florida, he still went up against Florida teams - including one state champion and one state-runner up - and five other state playoff teams. Scarbrough runs north-south - as evidenced by his highlight film. The defenses he faced (Trinity, Clearwater Central Catholic, Cardinal Newman) were equal competition and he performed well. Runs with authority and lowers the shoulder, often making defenders pay for getting in his way. We rank him at No. 6 - only because of the fact that he was only here for a year. Call it limited sample size. He is a physical runner who will punish you. Now imagine Alabama with Derrick Henry and Bo Scarbrough. He kind of reminds us of another Alabama native at running back named Bo... it's ok - you can open your eyes now.

5 stars6'2"234Alabama
#7Dillon BatesLB
Ponte Vedra, FLPonte Vedra

Dillon Bates first appeared on our radar at the beginning of his junior season. We saw the potential in him - and he performed at the Rivals Camp Series enough to get an invite to the Rivals100 Challenge. Once again, he didn't disappoint. Bates has progressed from an inside linebacker to an outside linebacker and his speed has steadily gotten faster. At the UnderArmour All America practices we watched, Bates read the plays very well and responded, often defeating two blockers in the process. He has the ability and the upper body strength to be a run-stopper. He stays low to the ground in tackles and lifts up opponents with his leg drive. He doesn't over pursue and plays pass coverage with his hips - like a defensive back. He is - in our opinion - the total package at linebacker. Bates will follow his father - Bill Bates - steps and head to Tennessee - and maybe even the NFL. For now -he's the highest ranked four-star in the state of Florida.

4 stars6'3"219Tennessee
#8Travonte ValentineDT
Hialeah, FLChampagnat Catholic

Travonte Valentine transferred from Palm Bay to Champagnat Catholic at the beginning of the year. He has a very strong swim move and reacts to the blocking scheme. He reminds us of Warren Sapp Same type of athleticism and explosiveness. We think he could be the biggest first-year impact. Academics are the big factor here. If he can get everything in order, he's likely to be an impact player. Very aggressive at the Army All-American game - practically unblockable. We see him going to LSU over Miami - based on what Valentine does best. - Analyst Michael Bradley

#9Joseph YearbyRB
Miami, FLMiami Central

When Joseph Yearby came upon the scene in 2010, we knew he was special. A freshman RB playing for the 6A (now 8A) state champion. Throughout the four years at Miami Central, Yearby has been the catalyst. It was Yearby's move to wildcat that brought Central from behind against Booker T. Washington in 2012… Yearby's long run against Naples in 2012 that got the Rockets to the 6A title game. At 5-9, Yearby is able to use his speed and cut-back ability to make people miss. He's not afraid of contact and get him in the open space and he's gone. Yearby's senior season was cut short by a broken bone in his leg. He has already begun training for 2014 - and word is - he's going to be just as fast and lethal.

4 stars5'9"177Miami (FL)
#10Artavis ScottWR
Tarpon Springs, FLEast Lake

Scott to Clemson is a good thing. He's got blazing speed and very soft hands. Runs very crisp routes and often gets double-covered. Yet he still finds a way to get to the ball. We've seen him three times in person and he has always had a phenomenal outing. He practiced daily against USF commit Devin Abraham and did very well at the US Army All-American game. Scott has the ability to make a secondary worry about his over-the-top speed.

4 stars5'11"180Clemson
#11Treon HarrisQB
Miami, FLBooker T. Washington

Treon Harris should borrow Skip Bayless' tired line about former NFL QB Tim Tebow "This kid's a winner. All he does is win." That's all Harris has done. In three years, the Booker T. Washington QB has won two state titles and played for a third. He led the Tornados to the state's longest current winning streak (26) and picked apart defenses like they were Swiss cheese. Four teams the Tornados beat with Harris at the helm, won a state championship this year. Will he play quarterback at Florida State is the bigger question. You've seen this type of athlete flourish at FSU – i.e. Charlie Ward and Casey Weldon. Harris is a coach's son and is a student of the game.

4 stars5'11"180Florida
#12Keyon BrownDE
Wauchula, FLHardee Senior

Brown impressed us at the Rivals Camp Series, the FACA All-star game – and kept on impressing us. His size and speed (4.77) make him a tremendous threat to a passing game. He uses his long reach to get around offensive linemen and physically pushes those he cannot get by. A high four-star athlete, some have called him the best to ever come from Hardee County

4 stars6'3"240Georgia
#13Mason ColeOL
Tarpon Springs, FLEast Lake

Mason Cole has the perfect frame for offensive tackle. Long arms, strong legs and mobility. He can pick up a blitzing linebacker or stay step-for-step with a power defensive end. He extends his arms and rarely gets too high on pad contact. Knows how to use his leverage and sinks his hips while maintaining his balance. Once he gets to Ann Arbor and gets into the weight and nutrition program - he's going to be a very good college tackle.

4 stars6'5"275Michigan
#14Demarcus ChristmasDT
Bradenton, FLManatee

A three-year starter at Manatee, Christmas has stayed focused on his commitment to FSU and is the second-best defensive tackle in the state, behind Travonte Valentine. We think he'll grow into the position. He'll be in the rotation after a couple of years. Look for him to take a redshirt and work hard in the weight room, which would allow him to grow into the defensive line system at Florida State. Could we see him shift to defensive end at Florida State?

4 stars6'3"285Florida St.
#15Isaiah WynnOL
St. Petersburg, FLLakewood

Originally ranked at No. 10 in the pre-season, Wynn impressed us early - last February when he dominated the BCP Ignite one-on-one competition. He steadily climbed up the Rivals ranking and made a significant impression at the Rivals Camp Series in Atlanta. He helped Lakewood to the state semi-finals. A physical presence and strength inside, he'll be a very good addition to Georgia's offensive line.

4 stars6'2"269Georgia
#16Jacob PughLB
Tallahassee, FLGodby

Pugh showed us his diversity by playing a little inside linebacker at the UnderArmour All America practice sessions. He's got the skills, and his physical style of play is noted. His weight might be more suited for an inside backer spot. He will benefit from a strong program at Florida State that has produced some of the best linebackers. We see Pugh becoming the next Christian Jones and likely moving to the defensive end slot.

4 stars6'4"236Florida St.
#17Anthony MotenDT
Fort Lauderdale, FLSt. Thomas Aquinas

Moten has a motor that won't quit. He is physical, fast and stays in his technique. He comes from a tradition-rich program that produces some of the best interior linemen and Moten is no exception. He has the speed and strength to play either in a 3-4 or a 4-3 and will likely see early playing time at Miami. Timed at 4.9 seconds in the 40, so he's got that quick step that often gives offensive guards and tackles a quick headache - right before he gives it to a quarterback.

4 stars6'4"292Miami (FL)
#18Sean WhiteQB
Fort Lauderdale, FLUniversity School

White steadily improved throughout the year, ending the season as Florida's top-rated Pro-style quarterback. He ended his high school career as the MVP of the UnderArmour All America game - outdueling some pretty good competition. He makes the reads comfortably from the pocket, has a great presence and is not afraid to get hit. He has very good arm strength and knows how to use his speed when he needs to. He made our pre-season watch list and showed us that he's legit.

4 stars6'2"204Auburn
#19Kc McDermottOL
Wellington, FLPalm Beach Central

McDermott impressed us at the UnderArmour All America Practice sessions. He consistently stayed with his man and gets his arms below pad level and lifts up his opponent. His footwork improved through the week and a year at Miami will make even more of a difference. His family is strong offensive linemen - with two brothers who played or play the position well. His frame is well-built and likely a year in a college weight training and nutrition program and he'll gain some muscle mass. He played tackle, but we think he'll move to guard in college.

4 stars6'6"301Miami (FL)
#20Johnnie DixonWR
West Palm Beach, FLDwyer

Dixon is a three-year starter for the Dwyer Panthers. He started his career as a defensive back and moved to wide receiver. He plays both positions when needed for the Panthers. He's solid in his route-running and bursts of speed. He has soft hands and makes very clean cuts. Get him in the open field and he's lethal. He can get over the top of defenses and puts pressure on secondaries with his speed.

4 stars6'0"175Ohio St.
#21Delvin PurifoyLB
Pensacola, FLCatholic

Purifoy is a run-stopper - plain and simple. He's a hard-hitting fast and agile inside linebacker that will hit you and hit you hard. We saw him twice last year against Madison County - and this year against Clay and he is a beast. He played both ways for the Crusaders and led them to three straight playoff berths. He is smart and reads the offensive line very well and is always around the ball. He pursues the angles and makes the play with his whole frame.

4 stars6'2"228Florida St.
#22Tony JamesRB
Gainesville, FLGainesville

James has been at Gainesville for two years and was one of the top rushers in the area. More specifically, he was one of the top threats in the area - as he catches the ball very well in space and makes great reads of the defense. He uses his hips to shift and cut - which often leaves a defender clutching at air. James is a slashing style runner, and beats you with cut-backs and speed. He'll fit well into the Oregon offense.

4 stars5'9"175Oregon
#23Kain DaubLB
Jacksonville, FLSandalwood

Daub transferred to Sandalwood midway through his junior year and became a strong force in the Saints defense. He has the ability to become a great linebacker at Florida State. Once he gets into a weight training program, he'll likely shed some weight - but put it back on. He dropped from 7th to 23rd in the FV100 - as well as the national rankings. Daub does find the ball and attack it well. His reach is an advantage for him.

4 stars6'3"240Florida St.
#24Trevor DarlingOL
Miami, FLMiami Central

Trevor Darling has the experience of a winning program and knows how to lead a running game. Miami Central has two running backs in the FlaVarsity Top 20 and Darling worked against some of the best defensive linemen in the country. He's shown the ability to stay with his man and uses his long arms to control a defender. His 6-5 frame allows form some muscle development. He shifts his feet very quickly and rarely comes out of his core stance. Hips sunk, arms extended - knees even with shoulders - textbook blocking.

4 stars6'5"330Miami (FL)
#25Duke DawsonDB
Cross City, FLDixie County

Duke Dawson is just what the Florida Gators need in the secondary. He knows how to play the ball and has great hands. He makes plays by attacking the ball, always looking for it. He's solid physically and has the speed to keep up with the taller receivers. His diversity is that he can play safety or corner - and he'll get a chance to make an early impact at Florida. He moved up seven spots from the pre-season FV100 - and performed very well at the Semper Fi All-American game.

4 stars5'11"195Florida
#26Trey MarshallDB
Lake City, FLColumbia

There is not a doubt in my mind about the toughness of Trey Marshall. He suffered a freak injury against Tallahassee Lincoln early in the season, when a block ended up rupturing his stomach and put him in ICU. Marshall underwent emergency surgery, yet made it back on the field seven weeks later and helped the Tigers to the post-season. He's a hard-hitting cover safety with speed and agility. He roams the secondary like a ball-hawk and makes people pay for coming into his zone. He has two speeds - stop and full bore. He'll fit in fine with the hard-hitting Seminole secondary.

4 stars6'0"192Florida St.
#27Quincy WilsonDB
Fort Lauderdale, FLUniversity School

Wilson plays with intensity and passion - which is shown by his hard-hitting highlight film. A coach's son (dad played at Miami), he knows the game. He played both safety and corner and played both well. His lateral speed made it difficult for teams to get a long score on the Suns. Wilson has the knack for getting to the ball and uses his 4.45 speed to do so. He was the Defensive MVP of the Rivals Camp Series Miami stop. He's not afraid to go one-on-one with a taller receiver and stays in great position to play the ball.

4 stars6'2"195Florida
#28Madre LondonRB
Fort Lauderdale, FLSt. Thomas Aquinas

London has the tools to be an impact player in the Big10. He's big, strong and fast. He runs north-south and is not afraid of contact. He has good agility and sees the field in front and makes the right cuts. He also is very dangerous coming out of the backfield for a pass, with soft hands and hits open space and makes defenders miss. He earned his fourth star with a very strong senior season.

4 stars6'1"202Michigan St.
#29D'Ernest JohnsonRB
Immokalee, FLImmokalee

D'Ernest Johnson is one of the best running backs in Florida - and showed it during the 2012 season, helping the Immokalee Indians to the 5A runner-up spot. He rushed for 744 yards and caught 28 passes for 413 yards out of the backfield - showing his ability to be an all-purpose back. He is a strong blocker as well, and can play defense. The one-time North Carolina commit will decide on signing day where he's going.

4 stars5'11"189South Florida
#30Michael O'ConnorQB
Bradenton, FLIMG Academy

Michael O'Connor makes it on our list at No. 30 - even though he's rated higher in the Rivals250 - we put him at this spot based on impact. O'Connor had a good UnderArmour practice and game. His arm strength is very good, his accuracy is strong and he stands very well in the pocket. At 6-5 he's the prototypical pro-style QB. Reads defenses very well and is very good at taking what the defense gives. He stayed firm to his commitment to Penn State after Bill O'Brien left for the NFL. Working under former Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke helped O'Connor strengthen his game.

4 stars6'5"223Penn St.
#31Corey MartinezOL
Tampa, FLTampa Catholic

Martinez is the perfect fit for Florida State. A physical, strong offensive lineman who uses his body very well. He has great punch-block skills, landing right at the correct level to control a defender. As a guard, he's a key on the line and can open holes with his leg strength. He stays at pad level with his drive blocks and controls the inside defenders very well.

4 stars6'4"290Florida St.
#32Moral StephensWR
Perry, FLTaylor County

If ever there were a more quiet recruit in the Rivals250 - I've haven't met him. Stephens stayed humbe and worked hard for the Bulldogs and rarely talked about recruiting until he got an offer from Will Muschamp. Once that offer came - he immediately committed. Florida looks to convert him to tight end - because he blocks very well and has great size. He catches the ball very well - extending his hands away from his body and his blocking technique is very solid.

4 stars6'3"205Florida
#33Brandon PowellRB
Deerfield Beach, FLDeerfield Beach

Powell was a workhorse for the Bucks, taking them to the post-season and although everyone knew he was going to get the ball - he still ran with authority. Great first-step speed and hits the hole quick. Uses his whole body to get more yards - lowering his shoulder and driving. Very strong north-south runner for his size. Flipped from Vandy to Florida in early January with the departure of James Franklin.

4 stars5'9"167Florida
#34Kyle GibsonDB
Seffner, FLArmwood

He's listed as a cornerback, but he played safety at Armwood for two years, teaming up with some pretty good talent. This year he shined as the premier defensive back in the Tampa Bay area. His cover skills are strong - plays very well with his hips and eyes. Reads the receiver and reacts to the ball very quickly. Flipped from Vanderbilt to UCF late. Will likely be a free safety at UCF.

4 stars6'0"180UCF
#35Reilly GibbonsOL
St. Petersburg, FLCatholic

Gibbons flipped his longtime commitment to Miami and chose Stanford. The offensive lineman has the tools to play the west coast offense style played by the Cardinal and the strength to boot. A very good run and pass blocker (which is a plus at this age), Gibbons controls his defenders with good hand and footwork. As a tackle, he often takes on smaller and faster DE's and seems to have no problem staying with them and getting his hands into their chests.

4 stars6'6"278Stanford
#36Corey HolmesWR
Fort Lauderdale, FLSt. Thomas Aquinas

Holmes performed at a high level all year for the St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders and showed his skill set to the Rivals analysts at the UnderArmour All-America game. The Notre Dame commit has good speed, runs very clean routes and high-points the ball. His soft hands and quick hips give defenders a challenge. He's not afraid to battle for the ball and uses his leg strength to gain an advantage.

4 stars6'2"174Notre Dame
#37John BattleDB
Hallandale, FLHallandale

Battle is a lock-down corner who has gotten better each year. We saw him perform in the Blue-Grey All Star game and he was in shut-down mode - including a game-clinching interception. Battle breaks on the ball incredibly fast and doesn't overplay too often. He has deceptive speed, as his 6-2 frame allows him to use his leg length to out-leap and out-battle receivers - and close on them.

4 stars6'2"185LSU
#38J.C. JacksonDB
Immokalee, FLImmokalee

Jackson made quite an impact on his position in the Rivals250 this past January at the UnderArmour All American Game. Jackson has been torn over his commitment to Florida, taking visits to Miami in December and Florida State in January. Wherever he lands, the team he plays for is getting a cover corner that loves a challenge and can lock down receivers with both his speed and his technique. Jackson plays the position well, staying to the inside hip of the player and taking away the inside position.

4 stars5'10"175Florida
#39T.J. HarrellATH
Tampa, FLTampa Catholic

Harrell just missed the Rivals250 - as an athlete - which is saying something. He was a two-way star for Tampa Catholic, which was a state semi-finalist in Class 3A. Harrell played linebacker and running back for the 10-3 Crusaders and played it well. He has great lateral movement both offensively and defensively, and flies to the ball as a linebacker. He takes the handoff and hits the hole quickly as a running back, using his speed to get into the secondary quickly

4 stars6'1"210Michigan St.
#40Jimmy BayesATH
Immokalee, FLImmokalee

Bayes is tall, strong and fast - a great combination for a receiver or a linebacker - which Bayes played both. An early commit for USF (January 30, 2013) he's stuck with the Bulls throughout the recruiting season. Bayes has the instinct to play outside linebacker and shined in the Semper Fi Bowl. He helped the Immokalee Indians to the 5A state runner-up spot in 2012. On defense, Bayes is a head-hunter, looking for contact and flying to the ball. He's quick off the snap and reads the pass patterns very well. He drops into coverage well and works with his teammates. Once he gets to USF and gets in the weight room and at the training table, he'll be a beast. Look for him to play defense at USF.

4 stars6'3"197South Florida
#41Demetrius JacksonDE
Miami, FLBooker T. Washington

The strongside defensive end from Booker T Washington lined up opposite this year of five-star Chad Thomas. Jackson was flirting with taking some other visits, but has backed off of that and is solid with his Miami commitment. His official visit to Miami on January 17th locked him up to the hometown Canes. Jackson is the other half of book-end defensive ends that were dominant on Tornado opponents. His strength off the block and quickness off the ball made him a valuable asset. Don't be deceived - teams could ill afford to block Thomas and leave Jackson alone. His speed makes him lethal on the blitz.

4 stars6'5"225Miami (FL)
#42Khairi ClarkDT
Hollywood, FLChaminade Madonna

A physical specimen, Clark is tough to block because he plays with intensity and strength. He has great lateral movement and eats up space in the interior. He plays off the double-team very well. Moving to Florida, he'll get a chance to compete against some very good offensive linemen - but we saw him do that in the Army All-America game. His strength is in his legs - but he struggles with taller offensive linemen that have good reach. Clark needs to improve his upper body strength. Look for him to get better with a college weight training program

4 stars6'2"325Florida
#43Montel McBrideOL
Plant City, FLPlant City

McBride impressed us in February of 2013 at the BCP Ignite event - and hasn't stopped since. His footwork is strong and will only get better. He has a mean streak - and likes to pancake people - which is perfect for Alabama. McBride's size is good, but when he gets to Alabama and gets in a college strength and conditioning program, he'll likely slim down a little - but bulk up.

4 stars6'4"332Alabama
#44D.J. GillinsQB
Jacksonville, FLRibault

Gillins proved he can play against tough competition when he transferred from 2A Eaglesview Academy to 5A Jacksonville Ribault and immediately led the Trojans into a playoff hunt in a very tough district. The Trojans were runner-ups to Jacksonville Bishop Kenny and fell to 5A runner-up Clay in the first round, but Gillins was the heartbeat of the team. He threw for over 4800 yards his first two seasons and was injured in his junior year, but came back in 2013 to throw for over 2000 yards for the Trojans. He's added a little weight, but not lost in speed - clocked at 4.51 in the 40.

4 stars6'3"185Wisconsin
#45Chris LammonsATH
Plantation, FLPlantation

With speed to burn (4.41 40 time) and quick feet, Lammons made the most of his opportunities on both sides of the ball. He played defensive back/safety during the Army All-America Bowl and shined early. He reads the routes of receivers very well and breaks on the ball very quickly. Look for him to focus on the defensive side of the ball in college, where he likely will become a free safety or cornerback. He very likely will be returning kicks and punts early - with that blistering speed.

4 stars5'9"168South Carolina
#46David SharpeOL
Jacksonville, FLProvidence School

Sharpe is a behemoth of a man, standing 6-8 and plays every bit of that. He's a good tackle that can play either side of the line. His footwork is solid - as he slides into his block and keeps his knees and shoulders parallel. He does not get overextended and punches with veracity. At the Army All-America Bowl, Sharpe worked very well against some of the better defensive linemen. He's physical and athletic. He has a tremendous upside and working at Florida, he'll only get better.

4 stars6'8"275Florida
#47Kendall RandolphDB
Tallahassee, FLLincoln

Randolph is a cover corner that has exhibited good reaction time and excellent footwork. He makes plays with his hands and his technique. "He is a pure cover corner," said Woody Wommack. "He is a guy who could probably play safety if he had to. He has good closing speed and very good ball skills." Wommack also pointed out that Randolph 'really impressed me at the Semper Fi game'. A game where he went against some taller and stronger receivers and did not falter.

4 stars5'11"175Kentucky
#48Javon HarrisonWR
Lakeland, FLKathleen

As the main weapon for the Red Devils, he often drew double coverage and uses his height and size to outbattle defensive backs for the ball. Harrison converted from defensive back to wide receiver his senior year. He uses his speed to get open and plays the ball with his hands. Where he ends up in college will depend on where the Hokies need him. He was a two-way player for Kathleen and was very good at both receiver and defensive back.

4 stars6'2"190Florida St.
#49Step DurhamDB
Jacksonville, FLAtlantic Coast

Durham was an impact player for the Stingrays. He's got great agility and can make cuts quickly and strong. His 4.59 shuttle time is impressive and his vertical leap of 38 inches makes him a prime candidate to play early for the Jackets. His size and speed is a factor, and he has a good frame. His footwork is strong and he sinks his hips in coverage and makes the right turns.

4 stars5'11"185Georgia Tech
#50Nigel Bethel IIDB
Miami, FLBooker T. Washington

Bethel has the tools to be a strong cover corner – with speed and agility. He gets off the ball very quickly and breaks on the coverage routes strongly. His only weakness may be his weight - which at 181 – could affect him in battles with taller, stronger receivers. Nothing a year in college on a nutritional and weight training program won't cure.

4 stars5'8"168Texas Tech
#51Isaiah McKenzieWR
Plantation, FLAmerican Heritage

The first of our 51 four-stars in the state of Florida, McKenzie just did miss the national ranking after superb all-star game. He was a consistent threat for the loaded Patriots, who won the 5A state title 66-6. McKenzie has verbally committed to Notre Dame, but is awaiting some test scores to get in.

4 stars5'8"165Georgia
#52Richard Yeargin IIILB
Fort Lauderdale, FLUniversity School

Yeargin's stock slipped through the year, and he lost his fourth-star late. The outside linebacker did not have the type of year the analysts thought he'd have. He started the year at No. 38 in our Top 100 but fell 14 spots. He decommitted from Notre Dame and his recruiting is open.

3 stars6'3"216Clemson
#53Keith HarringtonRB
St. Petersburg, FLNortheast

Florida's loss is Washington State's gain. Harrington played very well in the Blue-Grey All-Star game, racking up 189 yards and the game-winning touchdown. His quickness and low-to-the-ground running style makes him very hard to bring down. Rumor has it that if USF offered, he'd flip - but Harrington was very happy at Wazzu during his official January 17.

Fort Pierce, FLFort Pierce Central

Shaw decommitted from Louisville after Charlie Strong left for Texas and the Cardinals' loss is Wake Forest's gain. A big defensive end who has a motor that won't quit, he helped the Cobras to the state quarter-finals before losing to Plant. He is a cerebral player who knows the game and plays to the echo of the whistle.

Walters was the key back for the Manatee Hurricanes and led the team to the state playoffs before falling to Fort Pierce Central in the second round. He committed early in the season to the Tigers and hasn't wavered. He is the 18th ranked All-Purpose back in the country and has great hands out of the backfield.

#56Darrion OwensDB
Orange Park, FLOakleaf

Owens has speed, size and quickness and is a safety that will hit you coming over the middle or stay with you on the fly route. He committed last summer and has stayed focused on the 'U' and looks to become an impact player. At 6-foot-3, his physical stature is something that will be a factor if he stays at safety.

#57Jonathan VickersRB
Tallahassee, FLNorth Florida Christian

Vickers is versatile and brings his speed and quickness to Florida State. A three-year starter for the Eagles, Vickers was the work horse for NFC and chose to stay close to home at Florida State. Vickers has no issues running between the tackles and is a physical runner - despite his size.

#59Trevon LeeWR
Fort Lauderdale, FLCardinal Gibbons

Lee has quickness and soft hands, and runs very good routes. He's got the moves and speed to be an impact receiver on the next level. Duke and Vandy are battling for his services, both of which have offenses that favor a slot receiver with speed.

Winter Park, FLWinter Park

Harris committed to Miami early and has stayed committed. The strongside defensive end is quick off the ball and has good technique. He ranks in the top 25 of strongside defensive ends in the country. He has very quick hands as well, which aids in shedding the block. He can drop back into coverage when he needs to.

Tampa, FLTampa Bay Tech

Fullwood is an athlete who deserves this spot. He was all over the field for the Titans and was an intricate part of their offense and defense. He starred in the FACA All-Star game - enough to get him an invite to the International Bowl February 5. Fullwood is committed to USF but there is a lot of pressure being applied by Missouri. His quickness is deceiving - as he's been timed at 4.5 in the 40

Allen played an integral part in the UC win of the 2A state title in 2012 and helped the Christians deep in the post-season in 2013. His physical style did not go unnoticed, and earned him a scholarship to North Carolina. He is the prototypical size for a guard, but can play weakside tackle as well.

Culver stays committed to Louisville despite the departure of Charlie Strong to Texas. He's a tall and fast corner that got tested a lot early in the season, but played very well for the 9-2 Cougars. A key part of the Godby defense that helped the Cougars win the 5A state title in 2012, Culver has very quick hips and turns on the ball very well.

Gant has the tools to play either cover corner or safety at the next level. His height and wing span make him a dangerous threat back in coverage and his closing speed is noted.

Sousa has had experience catching lots of passes, as he's been teamed with one of the state's leading passers in Tucker Israel. Sousa's senior year ended with 100 catches, for 1664 yards and 23 touchdowns. He's increased is catches and yardage each year and with legitimate 4.5 speed, why not.

Ford is a former Louisville commit that remains interested in the Cardinals, mostly because of the basketball program. He's a two-sport athlete at Trinity, leading the basketball team in scoring as well as catapulting the Conquerors to the 3A state title with a spectacular second half against Clearwater Central Catholic. Where he ends up will likely be determined by whether or not he can play both sports at that school.

Rhaheed has had an interesting senior season. He missed the early part with a hand injury and committed to Louisville early in the year, but later recanted that commitment. When he was healthy, he was an impact player for the Cobras (10-2) who fell in the third round of the 8A playoffs to Plant. Rhaheed is an impact player when he's healthy and has the size and speed to do so on the next level.

Ishmael just completed a visit to Syracuse, and liked it so much he's not listed to take any further visits - yet. He hasn't pulled the trigger on a commitment and may wait until signing day. At 6-2, 175 he's got speed and size to play at the next level.

Worton is one of the reasons the Buccaneers won the 8A state title. His speed was showcased against Apopka in that game, catching a curl route - and then turning it up for a 60+ yard touchdown run. He has special teams experience too and very good hands. Some think he's a bit undersized for receiver at FSU, but he's got great growth potential - to go along with that speed.

Fort Myers, FLDunbar

Bronson was originally committed to Florida, but decommitted over the summer and chose USF. He's a former Rivals250 member whose rating has fallen a bit due to lack of production - not necessarily his fault, as his team was a run-oriented team this year. He did have three targets in the Semper Fi Bowl and hauled in a nice over-the-shoulder 44 yard pass. He has good speed and size. USF may have a diamond in the rough here.

Pierce pulled the trigger with Arkansas in September and went on to have a successful senior season for the Colonels, leading them to the state playoffs.

Torres has quickness and strength, two things that help a defensive tackle shed blocks and stop the run or the pass. His footwork is strong and his upper body strength is still developing. At 6-5, 265 he'll add some weight with muscle under FSU's rigorous training program and will help the Seminoles on a defensive line group that has been hit by graduation two years in a row
