41-50: The Ultimate Florida Top 100

Isaiah Wynn

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 41-50.

The Ultimate Florida Top 100


41) Isaiah Wynn

Class of 2014
St. Petersburg (Fla.) Lakewood
Offensive Guard
6-1.5/270
Committed to Georgia

Scout.com's take: Wynn is a tackle in high school that projects as a guard or center at the next level. He lacks great size (almost 6-2) but makes up for it with extremely long arms. Wynn has terrific feet. He explodes off the ball and is a tremendous drive blocker. Perhaps the best part of his game is the way he finishes blocks. He can be down right nasty and tenacious out there on field. Wynn does need work on pass pro but that will come with time.


42) Tyrek Cole

Class of 2015
Miramar (Fla.)
Cornerback
5-10/165
Offers from Florida, FSU, Miami, Clemson, Georgia Tech, NC State, Notre Dame, South Carolina, Tennessee, others

Scout.com's take: Cole is an outstanding talent and he has a chance to be the No. 1 cornerback from South Florida after this season. This is a player that is outstanding against the pass and in defending the run. He has all the necessary coverage skills and he's fearless in run support. Cole will fill out that frame in time and have a chance to be a super player at the next level. We shall see how Cole develops because he has a chance to be on par with former Miramar star [now Hurricanes] Tracy Howard.


43) John Burt

Class of 2015
Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln
Wide Receiver
6-4/170
Offers from Florida, FSU, Alabama, Louisville, LSU, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Ohio State, South Carolina, and others.

Scout.com's take: Lincoln's head coach Yusuf Shakir said Burt has an opportunity to go down as the best Trojan player he has seen. That's saying something considering the talent that has walked those hallways over the past two decades. Burt has elite size and speed and can beat you so many ways. Add his physical tools to his outstanding work ethic and you have the makings of a great football player. He's not there… yet. When it's all said and done it wouldn't surprise me at all to see him add that fifth star.


44) Travis Rudolph

Class of 2014
West Palm Beach Cardinal Newman
Wide Receiver
6-1/175
Offers from Florida, FSU, Miami, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Louisville, Nebraska, Oregon, Tennessee, and others.

Scout.com's take: Rudolph is coveted on both sides of the football (wide receiver, cornerback) due to his competitiveness, overall athleticism, and consistent play-making ability. This is a player that produces night in and night out. He will need to be more explosive off the line and that he can get down the field against top competition. There is very little risk with Rudolph and he should be able to produce early in his career.


45) Ja'Von Harrison

Class of 2014
Lakeland (Fla.) Kathleen
Wide Receiver
6-3/175
Committed to Virginia Tech

Scout.com's 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.


46) Jake Fruhmorgen

Class of 2015
Tampa (Fla.) 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.

Scout.com's 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.


47) Ervin Barrett
Projected
Class of 2016
Orlando (Fla.) Evans
Quarterback
6-2/190
Offers from Auburn and South Carolina
Scout.com's 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. Heck, Barrett has three 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.


48) Trent Harris

Class of 2014
Winter Park (Fla.)
Defensive End
6-2/235
Committed to Miami

Scout.com's 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.


49) Jordan Woods
Projected
Class of 2016
Ocala (Fla.) Trinity Catholic
Defensive End
6-3.5/230
Offers from Florida, FSU, Miami, UCF, Duke, North Carolina, South Carolina, and others.

Scout.com's take: Already at 230-pounds Woods has established as one of the top defensive linemen in central Florida regarding of age or class affiliation. He gets off the ball well and establishes good leverage. When he does this Woods wins most battles. For a younger player he does a nice job using his hands as weapons, especially in tossing blockers off of him. If there's an area of concern it's his speed off the edge. But he still has a lot of [physical] maturing to do.


50) Dillon Bates

Class of 2014
Ponte Vedra (Fla.)
Outside Linebacker
6-3/225
Committed to Tennessee

Scout.com's take: Bates is a very good outside linebacker. He has good size at 6-3 and speed with a 40 in the 4.5s. He uses good leverage when taking on blocks. Bates gets off blocks well. He's solid tackler who uses inside-outside leverage. He has speed to chase plays down from the backside coming off the edge. Bates always seems around ball and plays under control. He has great field awareness and play recognition. He can play versus run and pass. Bates does a good job in coverage of reading the quarterback and routes.
