Mike's Take: Florida Top 100 (31-40)

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.

31. A.J. Leggett, CB, 5-10/175/South Miami
One of the top two-way players in the Miami area this season, Leggett made his biggest mark at quarterback. However, he has the natural hips to be a shutdown corner at the next level. He can cover as well as anyone and has tremendous ball skills. Missing is the ideal size and plus speed. He is undecided heading into the middle part of January.

32. Marcus Maye, S, 6-0/200/Holy Trinity
One of the state's premier small school prospects, Maye made a lot of plays on both sides of the ball at the prep level. A lot of questions were raised on whether he could make a smooth transition to major college football. He quieted a lot of those with a strong performance, as an OLB, in the Under Armour game. He is a Florida commitment.

33. Thomas Sirk, QB, 6-5/215/Baker County
After playing mostly wide receiver as a sophomore, Sirk then also made his mark as a standout safety as a junior. He bulked up and played full-time quarterback as a senior and had a tremendous season. He has a lot of the tools you look for. Size, check. Arm strength to make every throw, check. Football IQ, check. Athleticism to keep plays alive, check. He's a major college QB prospect who will play at Duke.

34. Clive Georges, WR, 6-1/175/Key West
Perhaps the biggest rising prospect in the state in 2011, Georges was relatively unknown as a junior. He really emerged as a senior and put together an outstanding season. At 6-foot-1, he can flat out fly and just has a tremendous overall athletic package. He made plays all season, even against some of the best teams in the state (like Norland). He is uncommitted as of mid January.

35. Willie Bailey, CB, 6-1/175/Hallandale
Tall cornerbacks who can flip their hips and cover most receivers are rare in any state, including this one. Bailey flashes that type of ability. He played a lot of safety in high school and could project better there. He covers a lot of ground, he's a gifted athlete, and has a very long wingspan. He is committed and already enrolled at Florida. to

36. Avery Johnson, WR, 6-3/185/Ely
The younger brother of NFL star and former Ely/LSU star Patrick Johnson, Avery earned a reputation early on as being one of the top receivers in South Florida. He has ideal size, above average athleticism, and made some big plays at Ely. He is committed to LSU, following his brother's footsteps.

37. D'Vario Montgomery, WR, 6-2/205/Winter Park
You'll have a hard time finding a receiver in all of central Florida with a size/speed combo close to watch this kid has. He is a weapon in many ways – down the field, across the middle, and in traffic. He's tough to handle coming off the line of scrimmage and has enough athleticism to make things happen. He's missed some time due to suspensions, though. He is a USF commitment.

38. Matt Jones, RB, 6-2/210/Armwood
One of the top players on one of the state's top teams over the past few seasons, Jones has been making plays since his freshman year. He hasn't really gotten any bigger or much stronger since then and he's had some injury issues but his size and skillset is very impressive. He may end up playing receiver in college. He is a Florida commitment.

39. Will Holden, OL, 6-6/275/Clay
Holden was an undersized prospect as a junior who did a lot of things well. He put on the necessary weight for his senior season and was excellent. He has an ideal frame that can still carry a lot more, he plays with lots of passion, he's aggressive, he can block 30-40 yards downfield, and he's very smart. One of the most underrated prospects in the whole state, he's committed to Vanderbilt.

40. Marvin Bracy, WR, 5-8/170/Boone
Speed is the name of the game and Bracy has as much of it as any player in this year's class. When he gets a seam, he can take it home in a hurry. You won't see him caught from behind. He didn't make a whole lot of people miss in the open field in high school but looked very good as a return man in the Under Armour game. He is committed to Florida State.

41-50 51-60 61-70, 71-80, 81-90, 91-100
