When a player is listed as an "Athlete", rather than with a certain position, it means that they have the ability to play multiple positions at the next level. It could be someone that plays quarterback in high school, but projects as a wide receiver at the collegiate level or a player that plays safety in high school, but projects as a linebacker in the future.
There are 16 players listed as athletes and to be honest, there are more that could fall under that list. A player such as Nelson Agholor, the wide receiver from Berkeley Prep, could play receiver or cornerback at the next level and not miss a beat. That shows how athletic he truly is.
From those listed as an "Athlete", Eddie Williams is our highest ranked player. The 6-foot-4, 200 pound student-athlete from Arnold high school is an absolute freak on the field. He has the size to play linebacker and the speed to play safety. He projects as a safety at the next level, atleast for the first season on campus. Ricardo Louis, the 6-foot-2, 190 pound athlete from Miami Beach high school is one of the most smooth players in the state, as well as the country. He projects as a wide receiver in the future, but could easily move to the secondary. Guito Ervilus, the 6-foot-5, 225 pound player from Oak Ridge high school is tough to judge since he will miss all or most of his senior season due to an injury. However, when Ervilus is on the field, he is tough to stop. He projects as a big-time tight end at the next level, but could be split out wide, similar to how the University of Pittsburgh used Jonathon Baldwin.
This group of athletes is very strong. These are some of the top athletes in the state, as well as the country. Most of these players can and will be moved around to multiple positions during their collegiate career, which really speaks to their versatility. Here are the "Athletes" that made the FlaVarsity Top 160.
