What would a compilation of the top 100 recruits from the state of Florida look like if you merged the classes of 2014, '15 and '16? Here's a look at prospects 51-60.

The Ultimate Florida Top 100


51) Kendall Sawyer

Class of 2014
Lehigh Acres (Fla.) East Lee County
Cornerback
6-0/180
Offers from FSU, UCF, Louisville, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Oregon, and others.
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: Sawyer is a jack of all trades in high school lining up at quarterback, running back, receiver and defensive tackle. It is at cornerback where his ceiling resides and he has Sunday potential due to great size (6-0), long arms, a perfect frame, and the speed to run with the swiftest receivers. He is very raw in the technique department and will need some time to learn the finer points of the position.


52) Von Davis

Class of 2015
Mount Dora (Fla.)
Cornerback
6-0/180
Offers from Arizona, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Louisville, Wisconsin and others.
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: This is an outstanding athlete in every phase of the game, as Davis stars on offense, defense and special teams. He’s terrific on the perimeter as a wide receiver or cornerback. Davis is best in space where he can use his speed and quickness. But he can also get behind the secondary. Defensively, he got good size and cover skills to excel there as well.


53) Ravian Pierce

Class of 2014
Plantation (Fla.)
Tight End
6-4/210
Offers from Florida, Miami, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisville, Ohio State, Ole Miss, and others.
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: It is a lot of projection with Pierce as the 6-foot-3 tight end plays in a run heavy scheme and had very little opportunity to make plays in the passing game. Pierce has great tools. He possesses good speed, a thick frame, and quality hands. He is an above average blocker. Pierce could also garner looks as a potential outside linebacker or even defensive end. This is a prospect whose game should really take off in college.


54) JoJo Robinson

Class of 2014
Miami (Fla.) Northwestern
Cornerback
6-0/170
Committed to Florida State
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: Robinson is next in a long line of excellent receivers from Miami Northwestern. At 6-foot-0 he has good size, excellent speed (4.45), and good hands. He is a crisp route runner and makes an impact on special teams as a returner. Several schools are intrigued by his upside as a potential cornerback where he can use his excellent ball skills and his size becomes a plus.


55) Tavarus McFadden

Class of 2015
Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage
Cornerback
6-2/180
Offers from FSU, Clemson, LSU, Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, and others.
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: This is one of my favorite players in this class. McFadden is bigger than many of the wide receivers he lines up against. McFadden is very good in press coverage and can overwhelm guys at the line of scrimmage because of just how strong and physical he is. He has good coverage skills and speed. McFadden can set the edge and really be a force in run support. McFadden is also a super weapon in the punt return game.


56) Da’vante Phillips

Class of 2015
Miami (Fla.) Central
Wide Receiver
6-1/175
Committed to Florida
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: Phillips has good size and is above average speed. The best part of his game is his physical play and strength. He can make the tough catch look easy. Phillips gets in and out of his breaks quickly and is a good runner with the ball after the catch. And as a blocker he’s a very good asset on the perimeter in the run game. While he's still so young and raw, Phillips has enormous upside if he continues to work on his craft.


57) Mason Cole

Class of 2014
Tarpon Springs (Fla.) East Lake
Offensive Tackle
6-4/280
Committed to Michigan
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: Cole is a big framed offensive tackle prospect that can really move his feet well. He has long arms and plenty of room to bulk up and add mass. In pass pro Cole sets and slides well to keep defender in front of him. He has good balance. Cole is a solid run blocker who is more finesse than sheer power. He can get off the ball well, get to the second level and is quite adept at pulling because of the way he moves for a big man. Don’t be surprised if he ends up moving inside to guard in Ann Arbor.


58) Dionte Mullins
Projected
Class of 2016
Miami (Fla.) Gulliver Prep
Wide Receiver
6-0/165
Offers from Cincinnati, Clemson, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Pitt, Tennessee and UCF.
Scout.com’s take: Mullins is a guy that has been a football sensation ever since he first stepped out on the football field in Pop Warner. He’s been a legend down in Miami and now he’s in his second season at the varsity level. He had a super freshman season, showcasing his pure athletic and outstanding ball skills. Schools have already taken notice and Mullins has some impressive offers for a 2016 prospect.


59) Chris Lamons

Class of 2014
Plantation (Fla.)
Cornerback
5-9/173
Committed to Florida
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: Lammons has made most of his plays at quarterback. He will transition to cornerback at the next level where he has shined on the camp circuit. He plays the game very physical and with the type of confidence that you love to see in young corners. Athletically he has the ability to match-up with top talent. Lammons lacks ideal size (5-foot-9) and has not logged the game reps of many of the top corners in the country. He could excel as a slot corner in Gainesville.


60) Jaquan Johnson

Class of 2015
Miami (Fla.) Killian
Cornerback
5-10/180
Offers from Florida, FSU, Miami, Clemson, and Ole Miss.
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: Regardless of class this is one of the top athletes from Dade county. Why? He can do virtually whatever you ask as a coach and excel. Johnson can line up at a host of positions in an given game – running back, slot, wide receiver, cornerback and safety. He projects highest at cornerback. Johnson has good speed but not elite speed. He does possess quickness and great feet.
