Mike's Take: Florida Top 100 (51-60)

Football season is over in the state of Florida. National Signing Day is next month. Scout's Mike Bakas breaks down what he believes is a list of the top 100 prospects in the state.

51. Jeremi Powell, LB, 6-2/200/Pinellas Park
One of the more athletic linebackers in this year's class in the state of Florida, Powell plays fast and shows some explosiveness as a tackler. He was very active over the last few years. Powell is a Florida commitment.

52. T.J. Davis, S, 6-1/180/Godby
With the ability to play cornerback or safety in college, Davis has some playmaking skills in the secondary. He covers a lot of ground and isn't afraid to mix it up. He's committed to Auburn.

53. Jordan Diggs, S, 6-1/195/Island Coast
Diggs is smart and very athletic. He has a good football IQ and understands the game very well. He works hard and has the right frame for a major college safety. You'd just like to see him become more physical and make more plays. South Carolina has his commitment.

54. Daniel Gray, CB, 5-11/175/Boyd Anderson
He just started playing football as a junior and became a full-time starter as a senior. He picked off four passes and is one of the fastest prospects in South Florida this year. Gray is committed to Tennessee.

55. Rayshawn Jenkins, S, 6-1/190/Admiral Farragut
A small school standout who missed a good part of his senior season due to injury, Jenkins was outstanding in the playoffs, leading his team to the state title game. He has ideal size and athleticism and the question becomes can he make the transition from playing such small school competition? He is committed to Miami.

56. Faton Bauta, QB, 6-2/220/Dwyer
A first year starter at Dwyer, Bauta had a very good season as the quarterback. He is a dual threat quarterback who had a lot of yards on the ground, too. A tough, hard-nosed player, Bauta could end up playing another position at Georgia.

57. James Burgess, LB, 6-0/205/Homestead
While he's a little undersized still, Burgess is very athletic and has a real good understanding of the game. He plays with good instincts and they allow him to get to the ball a lot. He could be a strong safety but he'll likely grow nicely into an outside 'backer at Louisville.

58. Chris Bivins, CB, 5-10/170/Gainesville
Pure cover corners are hard to find and Bivins shows flashes of being one. He lacks ideal size and elite level athleticism but he's a playmaker who knows how to cover people. He is already enrolled at USF as a midyear guy.

59. Alton Howard, WR, 5-9/180/Edgewater
One of the biggest playmakers in the greater Orlando area over the last two seasons, Howard is a legit slot receiver prospect. He even played some running back in the All-American Game. He lacks elite level speed but has some wiggle and can make a lot of people miss. He is committed to Tennessee.

60. Lucas Thompson, S, 6-1/190/West Orange
With ideal size and athleticism, Thompson has a nice skill set. He's played many roles on defense the last few years -- as an edge pass rusher, as a strong safety, free safety, and even cornerback at times. He started in the Under Armour All-American game, too. East Carolina is his college destination.

61-70, 71-80, 81-90, 91-100,
