High School: Ocala (Vanguard)

Ht/Wt: 6'0, 190

Position: Cornerback

Position Rank in State: 3

Overall Rank in State: 15

College: Committed to Florida State

Good News: Williams is a long athlete with plus speed and quickness. He has displayed the ability to play CB and is a no brainer at the Safety spot. Has elite size at corner and will likely get his first look there. Very strong upper body.

Bad News: A little bit of a tweener right now and won't get much bigger than 200-205.

2. Kent Taylor

High School: Land O Lakes

Ht/Wt: 6'5, 215

Position: Tight End

Position Rank in State: 1

Overall Rank in State: 18

College: Committed to Florida

Good News: Excellent receiver with a family pedigree of success. Has added weight since the off-season. Capable of being a difference maker in the receiving game. Taylor has shown the ability to go get the football and has the speed to run away. Great height and hands.

Bad News: Fundamentally sound blocker, but will need to get stronger for the next level. How much weight can he carry?

3. Sean Price

High School: Citra (North Marion)

Ht/Wt: 6'2.5, 220

Position: Tight End

Position Rank in State: 2

Overall Rank in State: 23

College: Committed to South Florida

Good News: Price is very similar to Nick O'Leary and A.C. Leonard. He is a slightly under-sized pass catching TE that gets open at will and can do damage after the catch. Price has elite skills with the ball in the air. Can be spread out to play WR. Has an NFL type game right now. An excellent blocker.

Bad News: His lack of ideal size is the only drawback.

4. Noor Davis

High School: Leesburg

Ht/Wt: 6'3, 210

Position: Linebacker

Position Rank in State: 2

Overall Rank in State: 27

College: Committed to Stanford

Good News: Long, athletic outside linebacker that has outstanding off the field attributes. Family pedigree for success. Had a solid week at the UnderArmour All-American Game. Could end up playing with his hand down and that might be where his ceiling is. Dominated lower levels of competition coming off the edge.

Bad News: Will need to adjust to college football and could need some time to grow into his body as a DE. Will struggle in coverage in the Pac12 as a LB.

5. A.J. Legree

High School: Fort White

Ht/Wt: 6'1, 185

Position: Wide Receiver

Position Rank in State: 9

Overall Rank in State: 43

College: Committed to Kentucky

Good News: Brilliant senior season that saw him develop into a more complete player. Makes plays on jump balls routinely. Showed at the state All-Star game that he was a top overall athlete. A stand-out in track. Plus leaping ability. Good build. Could be a Safety. Steal for Kentucky.

Bad News: Will need to adjust from the lower classifications to SEC ball. Will need to time to work on the little things at WR.

6. D'Mauri Jones

High School: Leesburg

Ht/Wt: 6'3, 180

Position: Wide Receiver

Position Rank in State: 12

Overall Rank in State: 57

College: Committed to Miami

Good News: Former basketball player that put it together this season on the football field. Has the size and length that schools covet. Displayed some run after the catch ability as a senior. Good straight line speed.

Bad News: Needs to bulk up and build a football body and still has aways to go learning the position.

7. Chris Bivins

High School: Gainesville

Ht/Wt: 5'10, 175

Position: Cornerback

Position Rank in State: 11

Overall Rank in State: 73

College: Committed to South Florida

Good News: Competitor. Really battled at every place he could. Showed as a senior that he could be a play-maker on offense as well. Physical and made plays in both man and zone coverage. Has good size and speed.

Bad News: A knee injury late in his senior year means he may not be ready from day one. Is solid across the board, but lacks an elite quality.

8. Latroy Pittman

High School: Citra(North Marion)

Ht/Wt: 6'0, 200

Position: Safety

Position Rank in State: 8

Overall Rank in State: 77

College: Committed to Florida

Good News: Powerful build and a productive player on both sides of the ball. Has good straight line speed. Even though he is being recruited as a WR, we project him at Safety and he could grow into a LB. Like his ability to fill the alley on defense and his balls skills are great.

Bad News: Lacks the shiftiness and speed to be an elite WR. Catches the ball inconsistently.

9. Dondre Daley

High School: Tarpon Springs

Ht/Wt: 6'2, 175

Position: Wide Receiver

Position Rank in State: 25

Overall Rank in State: 140

College: Committed to Iowa State

Good News: Long, lanky WR that benefited from transfering to a more open offense. Was a very consistent threat as a senior and could have done even more if he could have had more chances. Can be a no.1 type down the road.

Bad News: A little bit of a wildcard as he was not seen against top competition. Classic risk/reward type of prospect.

10. Dequan Ivory

High School: Lake City (Columbia)

Ht/Wt: 6'0, 300

Position: Defensive Tackle

Position Rank in State:

Overall Rank in State:

College: Committed to Louisville

Good News: Very productive DT that consistently makes plays in the backfield. Strong lower body makes him tough to move off the ball. Flashes the tools to be an All-Conference type down the road.

Bad News: Ivery lacks ideal height and consistency was an issue.

11. Tashon Whitehurst

High School: Gainesville

Ht/Wt: 6'2, 195

Position: Linebacker

Position Rank in State: 22

Overall Rank in State: 147

College: Committed to Syracuse

Good News: Plus athlete that developed as a play-maker during his senior season. Whitehurst has good speed/quickness and has started to add the weight he needs. Downhill player that might best inside. Physical.

Bad News: He was a bit of a tweener between Safety and Linebacker. LB looks like his future home and he will need to get bigger and stronger.
