11-20: The Ultimate Florida Top 100

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 11-20.

The Ultimate Florida Top 100


11) Dalvin Cook

Class of 2014
Miami (Fla.) Central
Running Back
5-11/197
Committed to Florida

Scout.com's take: Cook is a back who can make a big play at anytime from anywhere on the football field. He has great speed and he gets to his top end speed in a hurry. He can start and stop with the best of them as well. He is best when used on the perimeter, but he runs with a tough mentality. He is stronger than many expect because his speed is what most see. He also can catch the ball and they are a real strength. He can run with balance.


12) Khairi Clark

Class of 2014
Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna
Defensive Tackle
6-2/323
Committed to Florida

Scout.com's take: Clark is a very strong interior defensive lineman with great strength. He overpowers many on his level with pure strength, but there is much more to like. He really anticipates the snap well, he fires off the ball quickly, and re-directs well. He pops up quickly at times, so he can play high, and he will need to work on his pad level as he works to get to college. He also can work on moves off the ball and disengaging skills.


13) Bo Scarborough

Class of 2014
Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy
Running Back
6-2/234
Committed to Alabama

Scout.com's take: Scarborough is one of the more versatile athletes in the country. He could play running back, linebacker or become an H-Back on the next level. As a running back, he is strong with great strength, and surprising quickness. He runs a little high and can improve at running through would-be tacklers. He moves well side-to-side and he is a great receiver out of the backfield. Not elite top end speed, but better than average for his size.


14) Shawn Burgess-Becker

Class of 2015
Coconut Creek (Fla.) Monarch
Wide Receiver/Safety
6-2/190
Offers from Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, LSU, Miami, USF, West Virginia, Wisconsin, others.

Scout.com's take: Burgess-Becker is an outstanding athlete who is good enough to play for anyone in the country on offense or defense. He has elite speed and very good size. As a safety he's a thumper, who excels in run support. He has the versatility to play free or strong and is good in coverage. He has range, instincts and is simply a playmaker. He just took on the wide receiver position this spring and looked sensational.


15) Quinton Flowers

Class of 2014
Miami (Fla.) Jackson
Wide Receiver
6-0/210
Offers from Alabama, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Nebraska, Tennessee, Texas, USF, West Virginia, others

Scout.com's take: Flowers is one of the best all-around athletes in the state and he is capable of lining up at three or four different positions at the next level. He will get a long look at quarterback because of a plus arm, great touch, and a knack for making big plays. If that position does not work out he can be a wide receiver in the mold of an Anquan Boldin. Bottom line - this is one of the Sunshine State's best athletes.


16) Jeffrey Holland

Class of 2015
Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian Academy
Linebacker
6-2/230
Offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, FSU, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, others

Scout.com's take: Holland is a two-way star at running back and linebacker. He's an aggressive and physical downhill player that can go sideline to sideline and play inside out. He can take on blocks and fill the hole. Holland is a big hitter and not afraid of contact. As a pass rusher, he has the size, speed and athleticism to dominate the edge. He shows deceptive agility and quickness.


17) Nate Craig
Projected
Class of 2016
Dade City (Fla.) Pasco
Wide Receiver
6-3/200
Offers from Clemson, Florida, FSU, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, Ohio State, Rutgers, Tennessee, Wisconsin and others
Scout.com's take: True story – I went to the Pasco/Robinson playoff game last November and some kid I didn't know about stole the show with a great game. He was a big wide receiver that ran like a deer. Turned out it was Nate Craig. He was just as impressive this spring. So was his highlight film from his freshman year. Right now we see him as the top rated prospect in the 2016 from Florida. But man is it ever early.


18) Trevor Darling

Class of 2014
Miami (Fla.) Central
Right Tackle
6-5/314
Committed to Miami

Scout.com's take: Darling has good size and long arms. He shows pretty good feet and can slide side to side in pass pro. Darling bends well and has a solid base. Darling appears to be further along in pass pro than run blocking. He doesn't appear to be an overwhelming drive blocker at this point and plays a little high. He certainly has plenty of time to develop his skills and has a lot of upside. At times he can be downright nasty.


19) Derwin James

Class of 2015
Auburndale (Fla.)
Safety
6-1/199
Committed to Florida State

Scout.com's take: James is an outstanding athlete that will remind many of former Polk County star Karlos Williams. He has elite size and a long frame. There's the possibility that he could grow and move up a level and play linebacker. Then again, James just may be that big, physical and athletic safety that can do it all. You can play him in or near the box or deep as a centerfielder. This is an overall terrific player that excels in everything he does.


20) DeMarcus Christmas

Class of 2014
Bradenton (Fla.) Manatee
Defensive Tackle
6-4/280
Committed to Florida State

Scout.com's take: Christmas had a super spring (2013). He came in lighter but stronger. This is a good athlete that gets off the ball and penetrates. He plays with good leverage, is strong, quick and at times just down right explosive. Christmas can take on and defeat double-teams. He's one of those tackles that can move the line of scrimmage and be a disruptive force on the inside.
