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, 71-80. There are a few prospects in this group that could be new names for you.

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.

71) Darrion Owens

Class of 2014
Orange Park Oak Leaf
Committed to Miami
Watch Video
My take: Owens is one of the most under the radar guys on the Miami commit list. I love his size and length. He has good speed, quickness, is physical and can change direction. He is fast and flies around the football field. He can flip his hip, open up and get back into coverage. He gives great effort when pursuing the ball and covers a lot of ground.

72) Garrett Williams

Class of 2015
Orlando (Fla.) The First Academy
Tight End
Offers from Florida, FSU, Arizona, Clemson, Duke, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, Rutgers, Tennessee, and others.
Watch Video
My take: This kid is just a very good all-around football player. You can line him up at tight end or defensive end and he’s going to make plays for you. As a tight end Williams can be that in-line guy or you can flex him out wide. He has above average speed for his size and he catches the football well. Perhaps his best attribute in his blocking. He plays with leverage and shows excellent feet and flexibility in taking on defenders. There’s a reason why he has collected a boat load of offers.

73) Tim Irvin

Class of 2015
Miami Westminster Christian
Running Back
Offers from Florida, FSU, Miami, Alabama, Georgia, Michigan State, Oregon, USC and others.
Watch Video
My take: Irvin is a special talent with the only area of concern being his size. He’s athletic, fast and very quick. Irvin has tremendous balance and vision. He can play a host of positions but excels with the ball in his hands. He’s a dazzling return man. Irvin is certainly one of the best big play guys in the 2015 class.

74) Deon Cain

Class of 2015
Tampa Tampa Bay Tech
Wide Receiver
Offers from FSU, Florida, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Tennessee, USF and others.
Watch Video
My take: Cain is a quarterback for Tampa Bay Tech but projects best as a wide receiver. He’s a big, smooth athlete that has length and he can run. He does possess some unique quarterback skills because of his ability to run and make plays on the move. Cain has an above average arm and throws with pretty good accuracy. In certain schemes he could certainly play the position. He’s just a very good athlete.

75) Ravian Pience

Class of 2014
Tight End
Pierce will sign with FAU or Mississippi State.
Watch Video
My 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.

76) Trayon Gray

Class of 2014
Miami Carol City
Wide Receiver
Committed to Miami
Watch Video
My take: This quarterback/wide receiver is terrific with the ball in his hands. He has outstanding size and speed and tough to deal with, especially in the open field. We feel his best position is wide receiver but he could also star on the other side of the ball at safety. Once he settles on one position and learns his craft the sky’s the limit for this future Hurricane. He’s one of the state’s best overall athletes.

77) Isaiah McKenzie

Class of 2014
Plantation American Heritage
Slot Wide Receiver
McKenzie will sign with Florida, Ole Miss, Notre Dame or Virginia Tech.
Watch Video
My take: McKenzie is one of the more electrifying recruits from the state of Florida. He projects more of an athlete because he could play running back, slot receiver and be a return guy. McKenzie possesses excellent short area quickness, speed, vision and balance. He has tremendously quick feet. McKenzie excels in space and can make big plays out of nothing. He also shows good hands and is a super threat in the return game. His size is his only concern.

78) Derrick Kelly

Class of 2014
Havana East Gadsden
Offensive Tackle
Kelly will sign with FSU, LSU, Georgia or USF on Wednesday.
My take: Kelly’s stock has been soaring of late. He’s a converted defensive lineman who has super size, long arms and terrific feet. Kelly is raw as can be but has a ton of upside. In a few years he could turn himself into a gem.

79) Dionte Mullins

Class of 2016
Miami Gulliver Prep
Wide Receiver
Offers from Cincinnati, Clemson, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Pitt, Tennessee, UCF and others.
My 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 two big high school seasons, showcasing his pure athletic and outstanding ball skills. Schools have already taken notice and Mullins has some impressive offers for a 2016 prospect.

80) Charles Perry
Class of 2015
Royal Palm Beach
Tight End
Committed to Miami
My take: I really like this 2015 linebacker prospect. He also plays running back and shows some talent on the offensive side of the ball as well. Perry is best between the tackles. He’s a downhill player who shows good fundamentals with his tackling. I also love the way he can close to the football. He shows some explosiveness from the inside.
