This week's CaliFlorida Bowl III is loaded with talent from the Golden and
Sunshine state. With so much talent on one field it's hard to know where to
begin. We'll begin with the best of the best for each state. Here's a quick
look at Florida's Rivals100 players
playing in Torrance this Wednesday.
No. 6 WR Ryan Moore (Orlando
Dr. Phillips): The top-ranked receiver in this year's class, Moore is the full
package with a serious combination of size (6-foot-4, 188 pounds), athleticism
(also a great basketball player) and speed (4.4 forty). With visits to South
Carolina, Tennessee and Miami complete, Moore has a trip to Florida (1/11)
left before he makes his highly anticipated decision.
26 DB Pat Watkins (Tallahassee
Lincoln): Rated the No. 2 safety in the nation, Watkins (pictured) was instrumental
in clamping down the St. Thomas Aquinas passing game led by Dan
Shula during the 4A championship game. Watkins runs a 4.45 forty at
6-foot-4 190 pounds making him a rare commodity in the secondary. Miami is his
current leader with Georgia amd Florida State close behind.
No. 28 WR/DB Devin Hester
(Riviera Beach Suncoast): Georgia is the leader for this five star defensive
back who can also get it done at wide receiver. With visits left at Florida
State and Miami, the race for this 5-foot-11, 180 pound burner (4.33 forty)
is far from over.
No. 38 TE/DE Lonnie Davis
(Jacksonville Ed White): The top tight end in Florida, and the No. 4 tight end
in the nation, has renewed his commitment to Florida State after a visit in
mid-December. Davis' stock slipped a little nationally after an average senior
season due to a nagging injury, but he's still a highly regarded recruit at
both tigth end and defensive end.
No. 50 QB Gavin Dickey (Tallahassee
Lincoln): The 6-foot 190-pound led his team to the Class 4A state championship
in 2001 and a No. 8 ranking in the RivalsHigh25.
Dickey has narrowed his choices down to Florida, Miami, Southern Cal, Notre
Dame and Georgia Tech. Florida is his current leader, but he has trips to USC
and Miami remaining.
No. 84 LB Nate Harris (Miami
Edison): The No. 4-rated outside linebacker had a sensational senior year tallying
121 tackles on the season for Edison. The 6-foot-2, 212-pounder lists Michigan
State, LSU and Miami as his top three with visits to Central Florida, Oklahoma
and North Carolina State scheduled.
No. 88 WR Devin Aromashodu
(Miami Springs): With the ability to run by people (4.4 forty at 6-foot-2, 185
pounds), Aromashodu also possesses a 42-inch vertical to out-jump defenders.
The nation's No. 8-rated wide receiver has visited Ohio State, Michigan State
and Auburn. Aromashodu has remaining visits set for North Carolina State and
Florida and is reported to be leaning towards
Auburn after his November visit.
