29 Mike Smith Miami Northwestern
Smith does an excellent job at rushing the passer and he moves up the field so quickly that
teams find it difficult to run on him.
30 Ja’ Von Harrison Kathleen
Wide receiver or defensive back? It’s a question that many will ask of Harrison, but as long
as he’s on the field making plays it shouldn’t matter.
31 Andrew Beck Plant
This young man is one of the hardest workers you’ll find on the field. And Beck has proven
to be a heck of a football player in the clutch.
32 Mike Johnson Countryside
Johnson doesn’t make a lot of splash plays, but he’s so steady and consistent he can
completely cut off his side of the field.
33 Kyle Gibson Armwood
The latest in a long line of solid defensive backs to come through the Armwood program.
Gibson is as consistent and steady as they come.
34 Blake McClain Sandalwood
McClain is a great athlete and could be a big, strong-side defensive end or move to the
interior once he gets to college.
35 Zack Darlington Apopka
Darlington has the sort of intangibles that show up best when the game is on the line. He is
a smart, exciting prospect who is a joy to watch.
36 Anthony Moten St. Thomas Aquinas
Moten is a versatile lineman that has contributed since he was a freshman at Aquinas. He
is more than willing to play on the edge or at tackle.
37 Richard Yeargin University School
Yeargin could also grow into a defensive end, but as a linebacker he has great closing
speed to the ball carrier and can rush the passer when necessary.
38 Josh Allen University Christian
A natural fit at guard where he can dominate interior defensive linemen on running plays,
but also has the footwork to move around in space.
39 Corey Holmes St. Thomas Aquinas
Holmes reminds one a lot of former Aquinas standout Rashad Greene. He knows how to get
open and he will not drop a pass.
40 Rohan Blackwood Nature Coast Tech
Coaches call Blackwood the “Rasta Man” and that nickname could stick has he continues
to show people why he’s one of the fastest rising stars in this class.
41 Greg Miclisse Palm Bay Bayside
Miclisse is versatile enough to play any of the linebacker positions, but we see an old-school MIKE linebacker that wants to make crushing hits.
42 Trent Harris Winter Park
Harris could show off more of his linebacker skills this year if he wants because he’s just as
good dropping into coverage as he is rushing the passer.
43 Dillon Bates Ponte Vedra
Dillon’s father, Bill Bates, was one of the toughest players to ever play the pro game. Dillon
is a bigger version of his dad.
44 JoJo Robinson Miami Northwestern
ATH 5-11 185
Speed is Robinson’s game. Whether he’s playing on offense, defense or special teams he’s
trying to get there as fast as possible.
45 Nico Firios Lyman
Firios has a natural internal radar because he can read a play from the start and follow the
ball-carrier until the point of contact. He has a great nose for the football.
46 J.C. Jackson Immokalee
ATH 5-11 185
Most people think of Jackson as a star wide receiver, but he has worked hard in the last t wo
years to become a stopper on the defensive side of the ball.
Stewart was one of the keys to Largo’s perfect season in 2012 and now this talented back
is ready to show off his all-around skills.
48 Montel McBride Plant City
McBride is exactly what coaches look for in an interior lineman – he’s big, nasty and doesn’t
stop blocking until the final whistle.
49 Madre London St. Thomas Aquinas
London will move from fullback to feature back this season and he should thrive as a big
back who runs between the tackles and wears opponents down.
50 Michael Johnson Champagnat Catholic
Johnson is another long, rangy defensive back that could play cornerback or safety. His
impact is felt several ways during the course of a game.
51 Kendall Randolph Lincoln
In many ways Lincoln is considered “Cornerback High” and it’s because players like
Randolph are equipped with flawless technique and positioning.
52 Ravian Pierce Plantation
Although Pierce spends most of his time as a blocker these days, he will grow into a multi-talented tight end at the next level.
53 Corey Martinez Tampa Catholic
A leader on the offensive line who can make all of the calls and adjustments at the line of
scrimmage. He’s athletic enough to play center or pulling guard.
54 Isaiah Ford Jax Trinity Christian
Explosive is the best way to describe Ford. He is a receiver that can take it to the house
on any play.
55 Freddie Booth-Lloyd Cocoa
Booth-Lloyd will play both offensive line and tight end for Cocoa because he’s one of the
most explosive big men in the state.
56 Deion Singleton Godby
Singleton can play cornerback, but his natural position is free safety. He brings a lot of size
to the position and is improving his ball skills.
