How would a Florida Top 100 look if you combined the classes of 2014, 2015 and 2016? Here's my version of the Ultimate Florida Top 100, 51-60. There are some Tampa Bay area kids in this group.

Welcome to the Ultimate Florida Top 100.

What is this list? It's a compilation of the top 100 football recruits from the Sunshine State if you combined the classes of 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Obviously there is quite a bit of projection when you mix in the sophomores and juniors with the seniors.

I did this prior to the start of the season. This is my version of the Ultimate Florida Top 100 right now.


51) Jake Fruhmorgen

Class of 2015
Tampa Plant
Offensive Tackle
6-5/265
Offers from Florida, FSU, Miami, USF, Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Clemson, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Ohio State, Tennessee, Vandy, and others.
Watch Video
My take: Fruhmorgen’s father played and starred in Tuscaloosa for Alabama so the apple didn’t fall to far from the tree. This is a legit offensive tackle prospect from one of the Sunshine State’s top programs. Fruhmorgen can play both tackle spots. He’s adept in the run game and in pass pro. He can down block and seal the edge. Fruhmorgen is light on his feet, has a long frame and shows flexibility for the position. Best of all he seems to play with that edge and loves to bury defenders every chance his gets.


52) Johnnie Dixon

Class of 2014
Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer
Wide Receiver
5-11/190
Committed to Ohio State
Watch Video
My take: Dixon has some unique physical attributes. He has plus speed (4.4) and a very strong, durable frame. He has continued to add mass while not sacrificing speed. Dixon is built more like a running back than wide receiver. This is a potential big play weapon at the next level and Dixon will be able to stretch the field. He doubled up this season and played cornerback. Dixon is talented enough to play on that side of the ball as well.


53) Kendrell McFadden

Class of 2015
Miramar
Safety
6-3/190
Committed to West Virginia
Watch Video
My take: McFadden is a versatile safety that lines up everywhere on defense. He can roam centerfield or play in the box. You can walk him up like a linebacker or put him over the slot. There’s so much this kid can do. He’s big and long and has an enormous frame. There’s no telling how big and jacked up McFadden can get in the next few years. He can run and hit and always seems like he’s around the ball.


54) Keith Gavin

Class of 2016
Crawfordville Wakulla
Wide Receiver
6-3/205
Offers from Florida, FSU, Georgia, South Carolina Clemson, Vandy and others.
Watch Video
My take: Gavin will have a chance to really develop and shine over the next two seasons growing in the offense led by sophomore quarterback Feleipe Franks (also on list). Well, then again, that could very well depend on how much this 2016 standout develops over the short term. He’s already a big receiver. But this is a young man with deceptive speed and athletic ability. He has a very dangerous skill set which makes in one of the more intriguing wide receiver prospects in the state of Florida.


55) Christian Pellage
Projected
Class of 2015
Brooksville Nature Coast
Offensive Tackle
6-7/250
Offers from Miami, Oklahoma, Penn State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Virginia, USF and others.
Watch Video
My take: Going into to this past season this is one kid that you knew could potentially blow up. That’s exactly what happened with Pellage. His offer list will no worse than double between now and May. He has enormous size, length, and good feet. Pellage has flexibility and shows the ability to be adept in both run blocking and in pass pro. He just needs to continue to work on his technique and filling out his frame.


56) Corey Holmes

Class of 2014
Ft. Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas
Wide Receiver
6-2/176
Committed to Notre Dame
Watch Video
My take: Holmes tests well and has legitimate elite level talent. He is very similar to Rashad Greene who has carved out an excellent career at FSU (also St. Thomas product). Holmes possesses No. 1 type ability, but may be better suited in the No. 2 type role. Holmes has benefited from strong quarterback play and playing in a collegiate style system. He’s a big play receiver with speed to stretch the field.


57) Richard Yeargin

Class of 2014
Ft. Lauderdale University School
Outside Linebacker
6-4/225
Yeargin just de-committed from Notre Dame and is now considering Clemson and perhaps Texas.
Watch Video
My take: Yeargin is big and very long with a frame to bulk up and add a ton of weight. He possesses good short area quickness. This is an outside linebacker that plays with a burst and can locate the ball quickly. Yeargin shows good range. He’s good at shedding blockers and getting to the ball. Yeargin does a nice job of playing in space, showing good feet and balance and the ability to stay with smaller players. He's a good pass rusher.


58) Ja’Von Harrison

Class of 2014
Lakeland Kathleen
Wide Receiver
6-3/175
Committed to Virginia Tech
Watch Video
My take: The Hokies are getting a really good player in Ja’Von Harrison. There are a few things that I love about him. First, he possesses an excellent combination of size and speed. Harrison has the versatility and athletic ability to play on either side of the ball at wide receiver or anywhere in the secondary. Personally, I feel he has an incredible ceiling at cornerback but he wants to play offense in Blacksburg. Yeah, this kid can run like a deer and has a bright future at whatever position he ends up playing.


59) Dwayne Lawson

Class of 2015
Tampa Hillsborough
Quarterback
6-5/207
Offers from Florida, Tennessee, USF, Indiana, Mississippi State, Purdue, FIU, and FAU.
Watch Video
My take: Dwayne Lawson has been called the best quarterback Earl Garcia has ever coached. That’s saying something considering his first star quarterback in the 1980’s was Browning Nagle. Lawson is a big kid with a strong arm. He’s smart and a hard worker. Lawson loves the game and loves to study the game. If you combine that work ethic with his skill set then you know why Garcia is so excited about this young man’s future. I are too.


60) Davante Davis
Projected
Class of 2015
Homestead
Cornerback
6-2/185
My take: Davis is a big corner who can play the ball. He can play man or zone. Davis is good in the air and can high point the ball. With his ability to that plus his size he’s tough to beat. He also supports the run well and doesn’t back down to contact. He’s not a very well known recruiting commodity now but he will be down the line.
