Biggins Chimes in on Cali Gator Prospects

With summer camps ending in Gainesville and our attention back to the Class of 2014 recruiting. We asked a hand full of the regional and national recruiting analysts to chime in on some prospects in their areas and what they have heard about them in terms of the Gators. First up is the West coast and national recruiting analyst Greg Biggins.

The noise on Scout.coms's number two cornerback Adoree Jackson and number seven ranked outside linebacker Dwight Williams from analysts and recruiting reporters on various networks has been that the Gators are right there or lead for both. We'll get to what Biggins believes in a minute, but he really likes both players.

For Jackson, he is an elite player that has a terrific upside still mlearning the position.

"His strength is he's a dynamic athlete, 26' long jumper and is just as explosive a corner as I've seen," Biggins said. "Still a little raw technique wise and can get beat just by not being technically sound but he always plays hard, has a great work ethic has both short area quickness and very good top end speed."

Williams plays bigger than his size.

He's a physical player, runs well, very good in coverage, plays like a big safety and has an edge to him," Biggins said of Williams. "Weakness is probably his size, he's a little undersized at about 6-1, 205 pounds and he doesn't really have the frame to get a whole lot bigger."

As for the likelihood that either or both could end up in gainesville when the ink is dried, Biggins is not so sure about that.


Dwight Williams

"I'm honestly not aware of those rumors and I'm pretty close with both and their coaches," he tells FightinGators.com. "Most out here feel Dwight could very well end up at UCLA. With Adoree, he's pretty up in the air but the buzz is if he were to leave the Los Angeles area, it might be back home to the Midwest where he's from. I know Florida is high on the list, probably top 5 but haven't heard they lead and would actually be a little surprised if they end up at the same school- they're teammates but not really close friends. They both love to have fun with the recruiting process and i think you might hear rumors of different schools leading for these guys all the way up to signing day."

So, don't shoot the messenger folks. We are trying to get the low down from the different areas and this one isn't quite as reaffirming as most would like.

More to come.
