"Super player who I think is underrated and not talked about enough," Newberg said of Harrison. "WR/DB that could play corner. Great size and speed combo for a CB. Could also play S or on offense as a WR. I saw him play last season against Winter Haven and he did some damage with the ball in his hands. This is a big, long, athletic kid with outstanding speed."
Newberg believes there are some rumblings about the Gators on this one.
It's tough to try and get info on him," Newberg said. "It sounds like VT will prove tough to beat but there are some that feel he could end up in Gainesville."
"Artavis Scott, what a player," said Newberg. "Pound-for-pound one of the top players and prospects in the state. He plays bigger than his size. Tay is outstanding in the air, has great speed and quickness and I just love the way he catches the football. He snatches it out of the air like a vacuum. Tay can climb the ladder and make ridiculous catches look easy. He's an outside guy with more slot size. He's dynamic and a big play talent."
As far as Florida's chances, according to Newberg, it is a tough call. "The out of state programs like Michigan, Ohio State are going to be involved.," he said. "I have no idea who the front runner is and this could be an intriguing battle to the very end."
St. Petersburg Lakewood has been good to Florida lately with starting BUCK Dante Fowler coming from the program. Lakewood is now home to one of the more sought after linemen in the region in 6-2.5, 270 pounder Isaiah Wynn.
"Isaiah Wynn… this kid is a road grader," Newberg says. "He plays bigger than his 6-2.5 frame because of his length. Wynn has very long arms. He has great feet and is just a mauler."
In the last few days Wynn has started to take notice of Florida but it appears others are ahead at this time.
Winter Park HS is home to one of the top defensive linemen in the state. Trent Harris is a 6-2, 235 pound big time pass rusher.
"This is a good, sound overall DE," Newberg said of Harris. "He can play the run and pass equally well. Not the biggest DE in this class but I like his length. I also really like how he can redirect and play in space. This is a really good prospect."
The Gators have been the front-runners for a while, but the battle for Harris isn't over yet.
"I believe Florida is the team to beat," said Newberg. "Watch out for Ohio State, as everyone knows."
