GK recap (Florida kids - Offense)

Gridiron Kings took place over the weekend and several Florida players participated in the event.

The Southeast team featured 10 players from the state of Florida and six of them were on offense.

Jamie Wilson -- The most lightly recruited offensive player on this list, Wilson was the most productive for the Southeast team. In the playoff game he caught more than twice as many passes as anyone else on this team. At 6-feet and 180 pounds, Wilson doesn't have blazing speed but he flat out knows how to get open, he catches everything thrown in his direction, and he can make things happen after the catch. Marshall is his only offer right now but expect that to change real soon, especially after performances like the one he had in Orlando over the weekend.

Sean Price -- Once again, at another scouting event, Price was one of the headliners. He was the second leading receiver on his team over the weekend and just continues making plays at a very good pace. At 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, he is really trying to make a statement as being the state's premier tight end prospect. He has soft hands, finds ways to get open, and has an impressive combination of size/speed. The USF commitment was impressive again.

Nelson Agholor -- He plays both ways at the high school level and is being recruited by some schools as a safety. However, he played exclusively at wide receiver at this event and looked very good. At 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds, he is very explosive and looks effortless at times. He did have a few drops but he does a nice job of creating separation and making things happen down the field. Scout has him ranked as a four-star safety and he could very well end up on that side of the ball. Either way, he's an elite athlete. He was the third leading receiver on his team over the weekend.

Duke Johnson -- He was the running back on this team and had an excellent weekend. He showed soft hands, the ability to catch the ball in traffic, and generally make things happen in the passing game. Of all the teams there no one handed the ball off more than this team and Johnson was on the receiving end of those handoffs. He does a great job of making people miss. He can stop on a dime and accelerate to full speed about as quickly as anyone else at the event. The University of Miami commitment looked every bit like the 4-star prospect he's rated on Scout.

Latroy Pittman -- The fifth leading receiver on his team, Pittman has a very impressive combination of size and speed and athleticism. At times he looks very comfortable at receiver. Other times, however, he looks to be fighting the ball a bit. He still needs to continue learning how to run routes and continue doing the little things to separate himself. He could end up being a better safety prospect at the next level.

Rayshawn Jenkins -- At 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, Jenkins dominated the small school competition as a junior last season and brings quality size to the position. However, he wasn't able to create a lot of separation from opposing defensive backs and wasn't able to produce like the kids listed above. He's still a quality prospect and is currently committed to the USF Bulls.
