Projection: Florida
With Newton, the size, strength, agility, and poise he brings to the quarterback position makes him a target for many, very different, offenses.

With Oklahoma and Mississippi State, Newton would be able to come in early and start competing for the job with the talent currently in the program and in the pipeline. While a great recruiting tool normally, Newton really needs to sit his first year and be retooled fundamentally with his mechanics, he footwork, and the new complex college offense.

A major working point for the Newton family is with the coaches and the program to which Cameron will commit.

"Obviously, the rich tradition of a program and the stability of that program, as well as the coach’s tradition and history," said Cameron's father, Cecil Newton.

With all factors included, Florida appears poised and ready to add another jewel to a very impressive recruiting class and it is a great fit for Cameron as well.

Physically, he plays a lot like Tim Tebow from last year's recruiting class. He is a big, strong player with good speed and able to bring the ball down out of the pocket. If Florida continues to run the spread option package that made Urban Meyer successful at Utah, that would be the perfect system to utilize Newton's tools.
