Rivals250 Watch List: 10 for Florida fans to follow
On Monday Rivals.com released the 2014 Rivals250 Watch List. It is an early look at the top juniors from across the nation. Florida already has commitments from two members off the list - defensive lineman Travonte Valentine and wide receiver Ryeshene Bronson. Here are 10 other Watch List members Florida fans should be aware of and are well worth keeping an eye on as we get an early jump on the next recruiting cycle.
Early List: Florida, Georgia, South Carolina
The Skinny: Florida was the first school to offer the young four-star. He and his mother have taken a few visits early in his recruiting process in order to give him a better feel for schools. However he still is getting new offers everyday and could have many doors open up down the road.
Early List: Florida, FSU, LSU
The Skinny: Brumfield and his family visited Florida this summer for a camp, which was the same time he was offered. At first he named the Gators as his leader, but then backed off that statement after a few other offers came in.
Early List: Florida, FSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Michigan, USC
The Skinny: Academics are going to be huge in where Mason enrolls into college. He has not taken a visit to UF this fall but has been has taken a few out of state visits. He is not originally from Florida, but the academic side of what UF has to offer could convince him to stay.
Early List: Florida, Alabama, LSU
The Skinny: There's been plenty of change all around for Daub. Not only has he recently decommitted from LSU, but he also recently changed high schools as well. At his new school, Sandalwood, he has been getting an earful about the Crimson Tide from 2013 commit DeMarcus Walker. However Florida is a school he has visited numerous times and was even at the UF vs UGA just a few weeks ago with Gator gear on.
Early List: Florida, Florida State
The Skinny: Dawson has visited Florida for every home game they've had this season and has not gone anywhere else. The Gators have lead for him for some time now and with his decision to commit at the end of his junior season coming closer, there is a good chance he will pick Florida.
Early List: Florida, Miami, West Virginia
The Skinny: Dixon has many ties to the Gators, with a former Gator head coach at his high school, and many former Dwyer players on the UF team like Jacoby Brissett. Dixon has stated taking his time with his process and not wanting to commit early, but expect Florida to be a school that stick with him throughout the recruiting process.
Early List: Florida, UNC, Tennessee
The Skinny: Grier has taken a couple visits to Florida so far this fall and is having a break out junior season on his high schools team. His relationship with offensive coordinator Brent Pease is very close and puts Florida in a very good place to land Grier.
Early List: Florida, Ohio State, Alabama
The Skinny: Ohio State is currently the leader for the stand out junior. He visited Florida earlier this fall for a game and enjoyed the atmosphere of the game, but the Gators are still second on his list of favorites.
Early List: Florida, Georgia, Alabama
The Skinny: Smith visited Florida for both the LSU and South Carolina games and liked everything more than he expected. Right now he names Georgia and Florida as his two main standouts and also said those schools are recruiting him the hardest.
Early List: Florida, Tennessee, Ohio State, Alabama, Auburn, Maryland, South Carolina, Miami
The Skinny: Tabor made a visit down to UF for the LSU game and liked what he saw, the list of stand outs for Tabor keeps growing every interview he does, but the Gators have consistently been one that he names when mentioning standouts.
