SunStateFootball Top 100: 81-90

It is another outstanding class of athletes from the Sunshine State in 2011. Over 320 players are expected to sign D-1 scholarships on signing day and over 180 will go to the BCS level. SunStateFootball.com releases our final Top 100 starting with 81-90.

81. Frankie Williams

School: Tampa (Robinson)

Ht/Wt: 5'9, 165

Position: Cornerback

College: Ole Miss, Cincinnati, Texas Tech, NC State, Iowa State

Outstanding play-maker, particularly on special teams where he reminds many of former Robinson star Javier Arenas. Williams has made plays on both sides of the ball(WR/DB), but probably has a higher ceiling as a CB. Quick and elusive, the only thing that he lacks is great size. He has shown to be very durable.

82. Eric Beverly

School: Jacksonville (First Coast)

Ht/Wt: 5'9, 215

Position: Running Back

College: Committed to Florida State

Early commitment to FSU, Beverly missed his senior season as he recovered from a knee injury. He was fantastic as a junior and while on the short side, he has a powerful build and is a tough, inside runner. Beverly needs to work on his speed. He should ample opportunity to make a full recovery before he is needed in Tallahassee.


Davis has the potential to play on either side of the ball

83. Cortez Davis

School: Daytona Beach (Mainland)

Ht/Wt: 6'3, 185

Position: Defensive Back

College: Committed to Clemson

Davis is all about upside. He has elite length and has displayed the versatility to play on either side of the ball. His ceiling would be at CB where he has the athleticism to excel and his 6'3 height is a major asset. Davis could easily be a WR down the road. He committed early to Clemson, switched up to FSU, and flipped back to Clemson with team mate Marlin Lane.

84. John Miller

School: Miami (Central)

Ht/Wt: 6'3, 280

Position: Offensive GuardCollege: Committed to Louisville

A big reason that Central won the 6A title was a massive, athletic offensive line. Miller was one of the key members and he really had a terrific senior season. He is like a bulldozer in the run game constantly driving his guy off the ball. He has quick feet in pass pro and the strength to match-up with interior defensive linemen.

85. Phillip Ely

School: Tampa (Plant)

Ht/Wt: 6'1, 185

Position: Quarterback

College: Committed to Alabama

Ely is a winner. As a sophomore he took over for an injured Aaron Murray and led the Panthers to the title game(where Murray won it). He won his own state title as a junior and had Plant back in the Championship game as a senior. Very consistent with a quality arm, it is his mental make-up that pushes him into the top 100. Ely simply does not make mistakes and that is what Coach Saben loves in his QBs.

86. Terry Bell

School: Lakeland (Tenoroc)

Ht/Wt: 6'4, 300

Position: Offensive Guard

College: Ole Miss, Auburn, Florida State

Bell has played both ways and schools are split on where to play him. He has the size and athleticism to play DT, but those same qualities are viewed as major attributes for him on the OL. He has a lot of untapped potential because his technique needs work and he missed a large part of his senior season with an injury. Has special tools.


Gaines has pure speed and can play on either side of the ball

87. Charles Gaines

School: Miami (Central)

Ht/Wt: 5'11, 175

Position: Wide Receiver

College: Committed to Louisville

Gaines is one of the most talented players in the state. He can play on either side of the ball(and has), but should find a home at WR at Louisville. He combines elite jets with outstanding feet and is the type of player that demands the football. Long-term he could have a higher ceiling at CB, but Gaines likes to have the ball in his hands. Gaines will need to add a little bit of size to his frame.

88. Prince Holloway

School: Cape Coral (Cape Coral)

Ht/Wt: 5'9, 165

Position: Wide Receiver

College: Michigan, West Virginia, Western Kentucky

Four-year starter for best stretch of Seahawk football in their history, Holloway brings elite speed and quickness to the table. He has played on both sides of the ball, but figures to find a home as a slot type. He has gotten much stronger over the past year. He could play CB where he has shined at various camps/combines.

89. Kaleb Johnson

School: Jacksonville (Ed White)

Ht/Wt: 6'4, 280

Position: Offensive Guard

College: Arkansas, North Carolina, Louisville, Rutgers, South Carolina, Florida

Dominant two-way linemen who should find a home as a Guard at the next level. Johnson is coming off an MVP performance at the Florida All-Star game in Sebring where he hardly left the field. He has quality size, athleticism, and toughness; all attributes that should help make an early impact at the next level.

90. Sterling Lovelady

School: Navarre (Navarre)

Ht/Wt: 6'2, 285

Position: Center

College: Committed to Florida State

High school OT who will move to Center at the collegiate level. Lovelady has dominated for two years in the panhandle because of his sound technique, plus strength, and toughness. He is an early enrollee and figures to have an outside chance of starting as a freshmen at FSU because of the departure of four-year starter Ryan McMahon.
