Arguably the state's top receiver (and the nation's top WR) prospect is Ryan Moore. Moore is from Orlando Dr. Phillips. Moore, 6-3 and 188 pounds, is also a standout basketball player that wants to pull double duty at the collegiate level. Moore has all of the attributes to make him a great college football player – size, speed, hands, work ethic, athletic ability and elusiveness. "I know that I will visit Florida, FSU and Miami for sure unofficially during the season for game," said Moore. "Miami and North Carolina will get official visits, especially North Carolina. Florida, Florida State, Miami, LSU and North Carolina are my top schools." Moore is also strongly considering the Tennessee Volunteers.
DiShon Platt, from Port Charlotte, says that Florida State and South Florida lead for his services. Platt, 6-0 and 170 pounds, is another game-breaker with super hands, elusiveness and vision. FSU has the inside track to sign Platt, aka Pacman. But watch out for South Florida. He has camped with the Bulls since the 8th grade and he feels very comfortable with Head Coach Jim Leavitt and his staff. And like Moore, Platt would love to play basketball at the next level. Other schools Platt lists are Ohio St, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, LSU, Miami, and Clemson.
Another Sunshine State blue-chipper is Richard Washington from Ft. Myers. Some people have said he is the best prospect to come from that area since Jevan Kearse. Washington, aka Lil' Pete because of his athletic similarities to former FSU standout Peter Warrick, is 6-1 and 170 pounds. "Ohio State is my favorite," said Washington. "Florida and Georgia Tech are coming on strong. Florida State was very high on my list but they have fallen a little. My mom wants me to be a Gator. I just want to find a school that will help me with life after football." Washington is a game breaker that can do it all on the football field and off the field he has a great work ethic.
Mike Williams, from Tampa Plant, is a big receiver starting to get a lot of attention. Williams, 6-5 and 205 pounds, now lists the Florida Gators as his school favorite. "They are," said Williams. "Florida State and Purdue are also right there and those three schools are my top three. I have also set up official visits to Southern Cal and Virginia." Williams is blessed with great size and speed. He is also a standout safety prospect.
Devin Hester and Chris Davis are two special athletes that could end up at the wideout position at the collegiate level. In fact, they could be the two best prospects from the state of Florida. Hester stars for Riveria Beach Suncoast. He plays receiver, running back, and cornerback. "Right now, it is Florida State and Miami," said Devin Hester. "Those are my two leaders. I also like Virginia. I will visit those three schools. I don't know if I could name two others that I would want to visit at this time. I want to play receiver at the next level and Miami wants me as a receiver. Florida State is recruiting me as an athlete and corner. But Florida State has consistently shown me more interest than any other school."
Davis, from St. Petersburg Catholic, is a high school quarterback that could play QB at the next level, given the right system. He could also play wide receiver. Davis, 6-0 and 170 pounds, has unbelievable skills including speed and quickness that you rarely see at the high school level. Right now, Davis is not talking a lot about recruiting but it will be awfully tough to get him out of the Sunshine State.
Devin Aromashadu and Darnell Jenkins are two big time recruits as well. Jenkins, a playmaker from Miami Central, has already committed to Miami. Aromashadu, from Miami Springs, is a strong lean to the ‘Canes. And like the others mentioned in this update, he has great size, speed and elusiveness.
