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, 91-100. There's a couple of fantastic athletes among 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.


91) Shaquille Quarterman

Class of 2016
Orange Park Oak Leaf
Middle Linebacker
6-2/242
Offers from Auburn, Georgia, Louisville, Tennessee, UCF and others.
Watch Video
My take: This is a sophomore that already has a grown man’s body with his size. Quarterman recorded 174 tackles as a freshman and sophomore. He’s so physical and understands the simplicity of the game – low man wins. Quarterman shows the ability to step up in the hole and obliterate offensive linemen. He plays compact and can explode into blockers. Quarterman takes the same approach is hunting the ball carrier. You just wonder how big will this guy will get. He still has two-years of high school ball left. It’s very likely he could end up putting his hand down.


92) Trent Harris

Class of 2014
Winter Park
Defensive End
6-2/235
Committed to Miami
Watch Video
My take: Harris has good size but not an ideal long frame you like in a defensive end. He does possess a good first step, quickness and speed on the edge. At times he can be an explosive pass rusher. He looks good against the run. Harris can be physical and tough at the point of attack. He plays with good leverage. Like most defensive ends at this stage will need to get stronger and learn to play with more technique and better hand use.


93) Kendrick Norton

Class of 2015
Jacksonville Trinity Christian Academy
Offensive Guard
6-2/280
Committed to Florida State
Watch Video
My take: Norton is a good line prospect on both sides of the ball. He’s physical on both sides of the ball. Norton will play offensive guard or nose tackle at the next level. He prefers defense. He has good feet and is a very good driver blocker. He bends well. While not as polished on the defensive side of the ball he can't be single block and is constantly creating a new line of scrimmage.


94) Calvin Brewton

Class of 2015
Miami Central
Safety
6-0/175
Committed to Florida State
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: Brewton is a good safety prospect on one of the state’s best teams. He has range in run support and playing the pass. Brewton shows very good fundamentals in tackling technique. He gets downhill and to the ball quickly. He’s aggressive and at times very physical. Brewton needs to continue to work on his coverage skills but I like how he can roam and track in the back end.


95) T.J. Simmons
Projected
Class of 2015
Lakeland Christian School
Running Back
5-11/186
Offers Florida, FSU, Louisville, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Miami and others.
Watch Video
Scout.com’s take: Simmons missed most of his sophomore season with a knee injury and bounced back with a fine junior campaign this past fall. When healthy he’s impressive. Simmons possesses excellent speed and quickness. He has great feet, vision and balance. I like how he can plant his foot, cut and get up field. He’s a big play running back.


96) Johnathan Vickers

Class of 2014
Tallahassee North Florida Christian
Running Back
5-11/200
Committed to Florida State
Watch Video
My take: Vickers has good speed but not elite speed. He has quick feet and good lateral movement. He can hit the hole in a hurry and shows good vision to shift through traffic. He can run with power and also plant his foot, cut and go. Vickers is more of a north-south back that is tough after initial contact. He shows good vision and balance and a guy that can be productive between the tackles. Vickers had a good senior season after breaking his leg early on during his junior year.


97) Mark Walton

Class of 2016
Miami Booker T. Washington
Running Back
5-10/175
Committed to Miami
My take: Walton will have a chance to become another outstanding running back from Dade County. As a freshman for Booker T. Washington he rushed for almost 500 yards and 11 touchdowns. This past season he rushed for over 1,300 yards and 23 touchdowns. He’s already well put together. Walton has speed, power and good quickness.


98) Ryan Davis

Class of 2015
St. Petersburg Lakewood
Wide Receiver
5-11/160
Offers from FSU,USF, Arizona, Iowa State, Kentucky, Vandy, Wake Forest, and others.
Watch Video
My take: There is no question that Davis is an excellent high school quarterback. He was dazzling as a sophomore in the spread offense of Northeast but now he’s at Lakewood. He improved week to week during this past season. I think he could certainly play the position in the spread offense in college. Davis does possess a lively arm and super play making ability with his feet. The problem is his size (5-11/160). That’s why he projects better as a [slot] receiver. He has the same speed and quickness as his older brother (Chris Davis, FSU) did at the same stage. I am higher on him than most but I have seen what this cat can do. He’s just a playmaker.


99) Ervin Barrett
Projected
Class of 2016
Orlando Evans
Quarterback
6-2/190
Offers from Auburn and South Carolina
My take: Barrett already has excellent size for this position. But what separates him from his peers is his overall athleticism. He has scary speed. And what I mean by that is his first step. He has a burst you don’t see often in high school. His passing game is behind his running game but that will change with reps and maturity. Barrett has two years of high school football to refine his game. I can’t wait to see what his game looks like in a few seasons. Barrett looks like the ideal spread quarterback. If not he can be a burner at wide receiver.


100) Cedric Wood

Class of 2016
Tallahassee Godby
Defensive Tackle
6-3/260
Wood has offers already from teams like FSU, Florida, Alabama, Auburn, and North Carolina.
My take: Wood is load for the Cougars defensive front. He’s strong at the point of attack. When he plays low and with good leverage he can move the line of scrimmage. He shows good quicks off the ball. Wood still has a long way to go but has shown enough flashes to become a big time target in the 2016 class.
