Twenty-two more players were named in the latest Rivals250 released Tuesday.

Added to the fifteen in the Rivals100, Florida dominates the rankings of the best in the class of 2014 like no other state.

Just missing the Rivals100, St. Thomas Aquinas DTAnthony Moten - jumped 61 spots to 102 - just barely missing the cutoff.

"On a team full of role players, Moten did what his coaches asked him to do and more," Rivals.com Southeast analyst Kynon Codrington said. "The four-star defensive lineman played some end along with his normal tackle spot. Moten plays with good technique and is very coachable. He is active with his hands to go with a strong lower base. The Miami pledge finished his season with a reported 40 tackles, 14 for loss, five sacks, and a fumble recovery. He missed one game due to an upper extremity injury but that didn't stop him from a productive season along the front four for the perennial powerhouse program from South Florida."

But Moten wasn't the only one making a big jump. Gainesville RB and Oregon commit Tony James checked in at 108 - up 49 spots.

"James finished his senior season with close to 1,400 all-purpose yards and 10 touchdowns," Codrington said. "The speedy back will take his talent to Eugene next fall in what appears to be a perfect marriage for Oregon's offense and his dynamic skill set. James will likely run track this off-season and his linear speed is second-to-none. Not only will James help on the offensive side of the ball for the Ducks, he is a tremendous kick returner. His versatility and world class speed make him an ideal fit for UO when he arrives to campus in 2014."

But perhaps the biggest leap of all came from Immokalee RB J.C. Jackson, who leaped 124 spots from 249 to 125 in the latest rankings.

"Jackson is a multi-purpose star for Immokalee that could play both ways in college depending on the school. This fall, Jackson hauled in 31 pass receptions for 862 yards to go with a stellar 27 yards per catch average and 14 touchdowns. On defense, he collected over 50 tackles, two interceptions, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. The Florida commit's recruitment doesn't appear to be over. He is listening to Florida State and Miami along with others. At one point he was committed to the 'Noles and UM feels they have a legit shot to flip him. The lucky school that lands him is getting a sensational athlete with outstanding ball skills."
