OLB | 6-1.5 / 192
Ransom Everglades (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 26
Committed to: FLORIDA
Commit Date: 4/7/09
Committed Over: Florida State, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, UCF, USC
Scouting Report: Ajagbe is one of the most athletic outside linebackers you'll see around. He's fast and athletic enough to play safety and has some experience there but he'll be an OLB in college. He's not a big hitter and his production level often didn't match his physical tools. -- Mike Bakas

Commit Date: 7/27/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, South Carolina, Stanford
Scouting Report: Ball is an exceptional athlete and he is best when rushing the passer. He will either blitz the quarterback from an outide linebacker position or from a rush end position on the next level. He is lean and needs to add strenght and mass, but he is explosive, quick, and very athletic. He has not had much experience at linebacker, so pass coverage will be something he has to work on if he ends up at LB. - Chad Simmons
RB | 6-10.5 / 190
King (GA)

Commit Date: 7/24/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Michigan, Oklahoma, South Carolina
Scouting Report: Brown is a complete package at running back. He can run inside or outside and he is threat to take it the distance at any time. He could run behind his pads a little better and run through more people at his size, but he gets to the edge well, he cuts back exceptionally well, and he is always on balance. Brown is a back that has few weaknesses. - Chad Simmons - South Region Analyst
QB | 6-3 / 220
Venice Senior (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 22
Committed to: FLORIDA
Commit Date: 7/31/08
Scouting Report: Burton is dynamic as a runner with his blend of size, speed, and power. He possesses high character and plays the game intelligently. While he has developed as a passer, there is still a ways to go. He needs to become more consistent on the short to intermediate throws. The arm strength is there and he has led Venice to a lot of wins showing great leadership. Burton is ideally suited to spread based attacks. -Geoff Vogt
TE | 6-3 / 230
William T. Dwyer (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 3
Committed to: FLORIDA
Commit Date: 4/20/09
Committed Over: Boston College, Florida International, Georgia, Miami (Fl), West Virginia
Scouting Report: Christian is an elite athlete at his size. He has great body control for someone pushing 6-4 and 245 pounds. He can make adjustments on balls and he looks natural when running in the open field. For his size, he is not the blocker expected, but that will come in time. He just needs to work on his technique off the tackle and he will be a total package tight end. His combination of hands, size, and athleticism make him elite. - Chad Simmons

Commit Date: 12/17/09
Committed Over: Kentucky, Louisville, Purdue, South Florida, Vanderbilt, West Virginia, Wisconsin
Scouting Report: Clark has developed elite speed and acceleration. He will make an immediate impact on special teams. He has played WR and CB and could project to either spot, his lack of ideal height will hurt him more at CB. He possesses solid hands and will excel out of the slot or in more spread based attacks. Clark had a fantastic senior season, one that ended with a state title. -Geoff Vogt

Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: Cincinnati, Georgia, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia
Scouting Report: Coxson is not a track guy, but he has game speed and seems to get faster when being chased. He is elusive in the open field and excels in the return game. He uses his body to shield the ball from defenders. Very strong player easily beats jams at the line. Has incredible hand strength. When he goes into the air to get the ball he usually comes down with it. Very competitive player with some swagger about him. Bob Lichtenfels/Scout.com

Commit Date: 3/1/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, Miami (Fl), South Florida
Scouting Report: Dowling is a beautiful free safety and he is one of the best in the country. His instincts really make him special and that is something that can't be taught. He puts himself into position to make plays and he makes them. Dowling has hands like a receiver and he covers a wide range in the secondary. He needs to work on playing more physical, but he is a guy that makes plays when balls are in the air. - Chad Simmons - South Recruiting Analyst

Booker T. Washington (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 54
Committed to: FLORIDA
Commit Date: 10/2/09
Committed Over: LSU, Miami (Fl), Michigan, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Tennessee, UCF
Scouting Report: Plays bigger than his listed size because of his long arms and his ability to elevate to make a catch. Will benefit from a college weight program to get strength in his lower body to burst in and out of his breaks more effectively. Excellent hands and a very good receiver in traffic. - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com

Scouting Report: Dunkley is one of the top playmakers in the country. When given a little space, he makes big plays. His size will keep him on the inside the majority of the time on the next level, but he will a threat every time he is in the game. He is fast, he is elusive, and he is dangerous. He runs better than average routes, he can get down field, and he can be used on reverses and things like that. He will be an immediate impact player. - Chad Simmons

Scouting Report: Easley has an uncanny ability to jump snap counts and also has good get-off, combining to give opposing offenses one big headache in their backfield. He uses his hands well and is strong at the point of attack, showing ability to set the edge and can also kick inside to defensive tackle where he's also effective. Easley is good in backside pursuit, tackles well and has a nasty streak. He needs to learn to change direction quicker. – Matt Alkire

Committed Over: Florida State, Georgia, Miami (Fl), South Florida, Tennessee, West Virginia
Scouting Report: Already one of the top 2010 players in the state of Florida, Elam is fun to watch. He is extremely versatile and appears to relish taking on more and more responsibility. Very effective at RB, he has the patience to let the play develop and the extra gear necessary to exploit creases and cutback lanes. Defensively, Elam plays downhill and seeks contact. Is always in position to make plays and finishes well--Burke Hayes

Committed Over: Boston College, Miami (Fl), Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, South Carolina, USC, West Virginia
Scouting Report: Floyd is one of the most athletic defensive tackles to come out of Pennsylvania since Callahan Bright. he is very explosive and has been timed at sub (4.8) in the forty-yard dash. He gets a great upfield push and is very good in pursuit. Tends to rely on a straight bullrush a lot. He will need to use more technique at the next level, but he has the potential to develop into a premier defensive tackle. Bob Lichtenfels/Scout.com

Scouting Report: Haden's skill set is more of a safety than cornerback. He lacks ideal size for safety but like his brothers, Joe and Josh, he is strong and solidly built. He has good straight ahead speed and can cover ground quickly. He has some versatility as he covers like a free safety but will be effective in run support like a strong safety. John Wallpher / Scout

Scouting Report: Green is athletic offensive tackle that is built like a defensive lineman. He plays light on his feet, he has a great first step, and comes out of the blocks low. He can improve his pass protection some, but that will come with more reps and I would like to see him play a little meaner. He has the tools to be a top OL in college. - South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons

Scouting Report: Kitchens has a lot of the athletic tools you look for in an outside linebacker prospect. He runs well, changes directions nicely, anc covers a lot of ground. He can also rush the passer quite well. He's not skilled in pass coverage, probably because he played a lot of D-end in high school and doesn't have the best instincts at reading plays as a result. -- Mike Bakas

Commit Date: 3/9/09
Scouting Report: McFarland has an elite frame to work with at 6'6 and he can run. He is a former basketball player and it shows with excellent feet. He is very raw as a football player and needs to add some core strength. McFarland has all the tools to be an excellent TE down the road, he just needs some time to develop. He should be an excellent red zone weapon because he can be split out and use his height on smaller DBs. -Geoff Vogt

Scouting Report: Leon Orr has rare athletic gifts for his size. He has produced as a TE and has an outstanding package of athleticism and size- we are talking elite. He projects to DT and has not played that much at that position. Orr needs to be coached up on the finer points of the position and has had some injuries in the past. Orr's future is up to him, he can be as good as he wants to be with a ceiling of playing on Sundays. -Geoff Vogt

Scouting Report: Seemingly undersized at 5-9 and 170 pounds, Patton plays with an abundance of strength and balance that allows him to make plays normally reserved for bigger players. He can go over the middle on a post route, or take an end-around right through the middle of the field. He is an accomplished receiver as capable of catching the 3rd and 12 out route as he is a wide receiver screen. Patton's versatility gives coaches a lot of options. Scott Kennedy

Scouting Report: A long, lean athlete, Powell has college ready size for a weakside defensive end, and he has the frame to continue adding on good weight for several more years. He has an easy stride and a quick burst off the line. His speed rush is too fast for all but the best of offensive tackles, and no one is going to shut him down for an entire game. Powell spent much of his sr. year at middle linebacker, but he's a more natural edge player, Scott Kennedy

Scouting Report: Riggs is a true shut-down corner. He has very good feet, hips, and speed. He always plays quick, he is always aware, and he does a very good job of recognizing the situation. Getting stronger is something he can work on, but he does most everything at a high level when it comes to covering recievers. He can play man or zone. - South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons

Scouting Report: An ideal tackle prospect, Silberman has excellent feet and long arms. He's a good enough athlete to even play on defense. He's well-coached and comes in with a real good understanding of how to play the position. He'll just need to bulk up and add strength to become a better straight-ahead blocker. -- Mike Bakas

Scouting Report: Taylor is a linebacker that plays at a high speed and a high level of intensity. He has a nose for the ball and he is constantly in on plays from sideline to sideline. He plays low, he has very good tackling form, and he delivers a lot of pop when making plays. He needs to work on not letting OLs get their hands on him and dropping back into coverage. Middle LB is the ideal spot for him. - Chad Simmons - South Recruiting Analyst

Scouting Report: Trail emerged as one of the top pass rushers in south Florida over the past two seasons. He's very tall with long arms and he's very quick coming off the edge. He knows how to get after the quarterback. He's still very thin and will need to bulk up and add a lot more strength before being able to compete at the major college level. -- Mike Bakas

Milford (NY)
Rating:
Pos Rank: PG
Committed to: FLORIDA
Commit Date: 6/18/09
Scouting Report: A good north-south runner and pretty shifty. He doesn't mind going up the middle but can cut it to the outside and get into the open field. Sometimes makes a few too many moves to make just one move. Really stands out catching the ball out of the backfield, and could also play in the slot. In fact, his versatility, is what makes him an intriguing prospect, because he can do it as both a back and receiver.

Scouting Report: Watkins is a playmaker and he has speed to a lot of damage in the open field. He is elusive in space, he has the speed to be a vertical threat, and he could play inside or outside at wideout. One of the most attractive things about Watkins is his toughness - he could play corner as well on the next level and he does not mind contact. His ability to run and change direction make him a high level recruit. - Chad Simmons - South Recruiting Analyst
