ESPN 150 targets: Florida 

April, 18, 2013
Lamont GaillardDerek Tyson/ESPNCoveted defensive tackle Lamont Gaillard is ranked No. 10 in the ESPN 150.

With the release of the ESPN 150 today, here are some of Florida's top targets on the list:

1. DT Lamont Gaillard (Fayetteville, N.C./Pine Forest)
6-foot-4, 300 pounds
ESPN 150 Rank: 10

Why they want him: In Gaillard's ESPN scouting report, the first sentence says it all: "Gaillard can create havoc in the heart of the trenches." That's exactly how Florida would like to use him in the middle of its multiple-set defense. He's big enough to play nose tackle in a 3-4 defense and quick enough to play the three-technique in a base 4-3 defense. Gaillard will be a prime candidate to help replace the loss of seniors Damien Jacobs and Dominique Easley.

Who else wants him: Georgia, Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State

Odds they get him: Florida and Georgia appear to be the teams to beat for Gaillard, so at this point there is a 50-50 chance he winds up with the Gators.
