Leading up to the kickoff of the 2014 season, FlaVarsity.com breaks down the top100 players in the state of Florida from the class of 2015.
100. Andrew Ivie - Pasco - DT
Pasco defensive tackle Andrew Ivie committed to Florida in late May and will join his brother Joe Ivie with the Gators. Ivie also had offers from the likes of Ole Miss, Mississippi State, UCF, and Wisconsin. At 6-foot-3, 285-pounds, Ivie is a disruptive force in the backfield and often draws double teams. If Pasco makes the state 5A playoffs again this fall, Ivie will have a big part in that.
99. Richard McIntosh, Jr. - Cardinal Gibbons - DE
McIntosh Jr. is a verbal commitment to Miami. He's a very athletic defensive end and his speed helps him track down fast quarterbacks and running backs in the backfield. McIntosh Jr. and the Cardinal Gibbons Chiefs are in the same district as defending 5A state champions American Heritage. They met up with Immokalee in the first round of the playoffs last year and lost 25-23.
98. Brad Mayes - Berkeley Prep - QB
The Berkley Prep passer hit the camp scene hard over the summer and impressed our Rivals national team, and earned a three-star - 5.6 recruit ranking. He committed to Lehigh on July 2nd. Mayes has solid mechanics and will look to sling the ball around more this fall. Berkley Prep draws a tough district with Tampa Catholic as the defending district champs.
97. Jalen Julius - West Orange - ATH
Julius recently decommitted from Florida, and has his options completely open on the recruiting front. He's now favoring Louisville, Ole Miss, and Ohio State. Julius teams up with Miami commit Dexter Williams in the backfield on a very talented West Orange squad. Julius is mainly being recruited as a cornerback. He has excellent speed as he often has breakaway runs.
96. A.J. Westbrook - Mainland - DB
The Daytona Beach Mainland safety received an offer from Florida State in May, and quickly pounced on the opportunity as he committed to the defending national champions. Westbrook and his Mainland squad will be a force to be reckoned with in class 6A this fall.
95. Camrin Knight - Lincoln - TE
Tallahassee Lincoln is always producing top division one talent, and Camrin Knight is no exception. He committed to Florida in February over Georgia Tech and North Carolina. Knight has great size at 6-foot-4, 220-pounds. He combines his size with solid route running and soft hands.
94. Dwayne Lawson - Hillsborough - QB
Lawson became a hot name on the recruiting trail this spring and saw a flurry of offers come in. He chose Miami over Florida, Ohio State, and UCF in May. The Hillsborough gunslinger will give the Hurricanes a strong arm and excellent size. At 6-foot-6, 215-pounds Lawson sees defenses easily and threads the needle. Hillsborough had a good season in 2013, but lost key district games to Jefferson and Armwood, which kept them from reaching the playoffs.
93. Tyrell Reed - Mounta Dora - OL
Reed can be summed up in one word. Big. He's listed as an offensive tackle, but could slide inside and play guard as well. You wouldn't think Reed is a high schooler at first glance. He's 6-foot-5 and weighs 330 pounds. He earned several offers this spring, including Georgia Tech, Indiana, and N.C. State.
92. Ryan Stanley - Flanagan - QB
Quarterback recruiting is much difference than any other position. Stanley is a solid quarterback prospect, and had a stellar performance at the Golden Arm Challenge as he won MVP over highly rated quarterbacks. He's staying patient, and sits at seven offers right now, including Western Kentucky and FIU. Flanagan should have another great year and Stanley will lead the charge on offense.
91. DaVante Davis - Booker T Washington - DB
Davis was committed to Syracuse, but after a huge spring, he decommitted. He now holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and many more. Booker T Washington obviously had a terrific year in 2013, and Davis will be a big part of the Tornadoes reloading their defense this fall.
