Friday was a huge day in recruiting as a number of top-ranked Scout300 prospects made their decisions on Friday. Who went were and what are they bringing to the table, Scout.com has the inside dish.

D.J. Humphries | Deep Run (N.C.) South Lenoir
| Scout300: 11 | #3 OT | Watch Video
Comments:  After only signing one offensive lineman in the 2011 class the Gators needed to have a big year recruiting the offensive line and Humphries is a nice haul. His biggest strength looks to be his upside. Even though he will need to bulk up in to an SEC tackle he has a high ceiling because of his feet. He moves so well for an offensive lineman and when going through drills he almost looks like a skill player. He has a long frame and nice reach and is able to get on the second level and make blocks. Has the potential to blossom in to a college left tackle.
Hiva Lutui | Euless (Texas) Trinity
| Scout300: 287 | #3 C | Watch Video
Comments: Lutui has family in the area and feels like he is going home with his commitment to UCLA. The Bruins are also in need of help along the offensive line and Lutui is the type of road-grading player who could bring a new attitude. He is at his best coming downhill to drive defenders off the line and open up lanes for running backs to run through. Look for UCLA to possibly convert him to a center. 
Dalton Santos | Van (Texas)
| Scout300: 182 | 5 MLB | Watch Video
Comments: Felt like he made a great decision to play in the SEC and he has the type of game that is suited for the SEC style of play. He is a big, burly middle linebacker prospect, a little bit of a throw-back. He can fill the gaps nicely and has the mind-frame to take a pounding. He is looking forward to stepping up and stopping the run 25-30 times a game. He also sees an opportunity to contribute early on in his career.
Greg Pyke | Baltimore (Md.) The Boys' Latin School
| Scout300: NR | #41 OG | Watch Video
Comments: Pyke is an also a standout lacrosse player and like many lacrosse players who have come before him he is known to have a serious meant streak once he steps on any field. He is a powerful blocker on the high school level who uses his superior size and strength to his advantage. He will have to work on his pad level once he gets to Georgia. I like that he made some big-time, athletic plays on the defensive side of the ball in his sophomore film,He plays offensive tackle in high school, but could also move inside and play some guard as well in college, depending on the needs of the program.
Chris Black | Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast
| Scout300: 113 | #19 WR | Watch Video
Comments: This guy is so quick and speedy that he does not need to do too much to beat defensive backs in high school. he makes a quick-twitch move at the line of scrimmage and then roast defenders down the field. He could be an excellent slot receiver, but because of his ability to stretch the field you could see him split out wide more often than not. He makes good adjustments to the deep ball and has soft hands. Somehow he just always seems to get good separation between himself and the defender.
Dennis Norfleet | Detroit (Mich.) Kings
| Scout300: 163 | #19 RB | Watch Video
Comments: If you blink you might miss him. Dennis Norfleet is that quick. He has some great ability to stop and go and cut on a dime and if you do not get a solid grip on him he will use his ability to slip away and get down the field in a blink of an eye. He is not likely going to be a 20 down back in college, but with his ability to catch the ball the Bearcats coaches will be finding some interesting ways to get him involved as much as possible.
