SoFla NFTC: Recruiting Notes

PLANTATION, Fla. - Some of the top prospects in Florida competed in the Nike Football Training Camp Sunday and Scout has recruiting notes on some of those here...

  • Scout 300 wide receiver John Burt will visit Miami Monday and then get over to Tuscaloosa, Ala. Tuesday to visit Alabama. He is on spring break this week. The Tallahassee, Fla. native has recently added Nebraska, UCLA, and USC offers. He does not have a leader and he is planning to take more visits this spring and summer.

  • 2016 four-star running back Mark Walton out o Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington picked up an offer from Georgia last week. He is going to give other schools a look, but he remains a "strong" Miami commitment. He now has seven scholarship offers.

  • Scout 100 running back Jordan Scarlett remains committed to FAU, but he will continue to look at his options. His former head coach Roger Harriet is now coaching at FAU and he is the key to Scarlett's commitment.

  • Cornerback Tyrek Cole is "committed" to Miami, but still "open". Alabama, LSU, Miami, and others continue to pursue the Florida State commit. He plans to take some visits this summer and one will be to Ohio State. He will visit FSU March 22.

  • Miami Norland defensive back Carlton Davis is up to 15 offers. He visited Miami not long ago and he had a "good time" there. He is working to set up visits to Florida and South Carolina. He would not mind staying somewhat close to home when he leaves for college.

  • Sh'mar Kilby-Lane has only visited Florida State in 2014. He likes the FSU program and how the football players are treated there in Tallahassee. Clemson and Georgia recently offered and he currently favors Alabama, FSU, and Ohio State.

  • Alabama, Auburn, and Tennessee are the top three for 2016 receiver Dionte Mullins. He now claims 15 offers and he is OK with leaving the state to play college football.

  • Texas and USC have extended offers to Devonaire Clarington, a four-star tight end and he is up to 25 offers. He is looking for a school that he feels comfortable at and a school that will use him at tight end. The four-star visited Miami recently and the visit was successful, but he does not claim a leader right now.

  • Shawn Burgess-Becker was thinking about committing not too long ago, but he has now slowed things down. Alabama is his leader and he wants to get back to Tuscaloosa as soon as possible. Miami is second on his list. His mother stepped in asking him to take more time, to take his visits, and to then make an educated decision.

  • Four-star wide receiver Jovon Durante is still committed to West Virginia. He has a great connection with multiple coaches on that staff and that is key to his commitment. Schools like Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, and Miami are on him hard, but he calls his commitment to WVU "95-percent" strong.
