THE BEST OF FLORIDA Power 100
Florida’s Top 100 Seniors
01 Sony Michel RB Plantation American Heritage
15 Johnnie Dixon Dwyer
The spot seems to have been reserved for Michel since he was an eighth grader. But over
the past five years the Georgia commit has proven himself worthy time and time again.
Whether it’s on offense or defense, there’s no question Dixon gives his full effort on every
play. There will be a fierce recruiting battle for his commitment down the stretch.
02 Kc McDermott Palm Beach Central
16 Trey Marshall Columbia
When you think about who will be the future “franchise” left tackles in football, McDermott
should be at or near the top of those lists.
A hard-hitting, athletic rover on defense very similar to Jerome Carter, who also once
roamed the secondary at Columbia High.
03 Dalvin Cook Miami Central
ATH 5-11 195
Booker T. Washington
Most people know about Cook’s accomplishments as a running back, but in all honesty he
could easily be a future star on the defensive side of the football if he wanted.
With Matthew Thomas having graduated, the torch has been passed to Chad Thomas and
great things are expected from him as a senior.
04 Ermon Lane Homestead
18 Isaiah Wynn Lakewood
One of the best pure route runners in this class. Lane is much stronger than his 180
pounds would indicate and he does not let the football touch the ground.
Wynn’s talents have transformed Lakewood from running a wide-open spread offense to
more of a physical balanced attack. He is that good.
05 Demarcus Christmas Manatee
19 Delvin Purifoy Pensacola Catholic
Christmas has been on everyone’s radar since his was a sophomore. Now going into his
third year as a starter, he is expected to dominate every opponent.
Purifoy already has the size to play in college and at times he looks like a man among boys
while making plays all over the field.
06 Joseph Yearby Miami Central
20 Jacob Pugh Godby
Yearby was an observer as a freshman, watching his friend Devonta Freeman lead Central
to its first state title. Now Yearby is hoping to win his second title as a starter and go 4-for- 4
in finals appearances.
Pugh’s height allows him to be used as a linebacker or a defensive end in some situations.
He is athletic enough to rush up the field or drop into coverage.
21 Khairi Clark Chaminade-Madonna
07 Kain Daub Sandalwood
In the last two years, Daub has grown from a promising prospect into one of the most
impressive, intimidating defensive forces in the state.
Clark is quick off the football and will be disruptive until the sound of the whistle. He is
athletic enough to catch skill players from behind.
22 Chris Lammons Plantation
08 David Sharpe Providence
A two-sport star, Sharpe could find success on the gridiron or the hardwood at the next
level. We are hoping he chooses football.
Lammons is a quarterback now, but he’ll likely end up at cornerback in college. He will
develop the size to handle bigger receivers.
23 Ray Raulerson Plant
09 Travonte Valentine Palm Bay Bayside
Anyone who has doubts about how dominating Valentine can be should just watch him a
few times this fall. He will be a wrecking machine.
Raulerson is talented enough to play several positions on the offensive line and will likely
end up as a right-side tackle.
24 Kendall Gant Lake Gibson
10 Artavis Scott East Lake
WR 5-10 175
One of the most competitive prospects in this class, Scott can make a name for himself on
offense, defense or special teams.
Gant continues to grow as a player and can cover so much ground with his size. He is one
of the most natural free safeties in this class.
11 Duke Dawson Dixie County
25 Michael O’Connor IMG Academy
Dawson doesn’t lack confidence and that’s a good thing because he spent much of his offseason being challenged by some of the best receivers around. He usually got the best of them.
O’Connor has been a standout in Canada and Tennessee before landing in Florida to learn
under former Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke.
ATH 5-8 180
12 Mason Cole East Lake
26 Brandon Powell Deerfield Beach
Cole will become one of the best interior linemen in the game because of his superior
hands and ability to push defensive linemen off their track.
Powell’s future looks like it will be at running back, but the key with Powell is making sure
he gets on the field and has the football in his hands.
27 Adam Torres Lake Mary
13 Quinton Flowers Miami Jackson
The most athletic, exciting quarterback to come through the state in several years. Flowers
might not be the biggest, but he’s one of the best.
Torres ends up in the opponent’s backfield so quickly some people might mistake him for a
fullback, but that’s how quickly he moves once the ball is snapped.
14 Keyon Brown Hardee
28 Trevor Darling Miami Central
Brown doesn’t often get the spotlight like prospects who live in more-populated areas, but
he’s widely considered one of the best in the state.
Darling is going into his fourth year as a starter and he’s is a big player that will surprise
many with how well he can move in space.
