How good are the Florida prep prospects in UF’s 2016 class?
All but one of the 13 in-state commits who play for public high schools were named to the All-State teams this week. Top-100 defensive tackle Shavar Manuel wasn’t eligible because he attends IMG Academy, but his talent level goes without saying.
Florida’s top pledge for 2017, quarterback Jake Allen, also made the first-team for Class 7A. Next year, Allen could repeat Tim Tebow’s feat of earning back-to-back first-team all-state selections.
Not too shabby.
Here are two things to know:
- 13 future Gators from Florida were All-State selections for 2015, with nine earning first-team honors.
- Days removed from backing off his Tennessee commitment, UF offered the nation’s No. 1 overall junior college recruit.
