ORLANDO, Fla. -- Class of 2015 athlete Jaylin Hayward (Tallahassee, Fla./Godby) might be just a sophomore, but the talented prospect is already receiving heavy interest from the in-state programs.

The 5-foot-9, 165-pound athlete, who totaled three receptions for 35 yards in Godby's 21-20 state championship victory over Immokalee (Fla.) Immokalee on Friday, said he is receiving heavy interest from several top programs.

"I'm hearing a lot from Alabama, Florida State, Florida, Miami and hopefully Oregon soon, but I'm not sure," Hayward said. "I have offers from Kentucky, FSU, Miami and Florida already."

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The high school career of ESPN 150 safety Leon McQuay III (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) came to an end on Friday, as Armwood fell in the playoffs to nationally ranked Gainesville (Fla.) High School.

Though his season is over, things are starting to heat up with McQuay's recruitment. He continues to have a top five of Florida State, Oregon, Vanderbilt, Michigan and USC. Michigan defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery was on hand to watch McQuay on Friday.

Tom Hauck for ESPN.comLeon McQuay is the No. 3 safety in the nation. He's ranked No. 32 overall in the ESPN 150.
McQuay has taken official visits to all of his favorite schools except for Southern Cal but is planning to visit USC next weekend. Florida State and USC have made a big push for McQuay over the last several months. But with FSU defensive coordinator Mark Stoops taking the head coaching job at Kentucky and USC defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin stepping down this past week, McQuay said he is waiting to see who will replace them before he making any changes with his recruitment.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- ESPN Watch List running back Tony James (Gainesville, Fla./Gainesville) missed Gainesville's game against cross-town rival Buchholz High School on Friday with a mild concussion. Despite missing the game, the 2014 prospect did talk about the latest in his recruitment.

The 5-foot-11, 165-pound running back, who has offers from Florida, Miami, Ohio State, UCLA, Georgia Tech and most recently Florida State, visited Florida for its game against LSU last weekend. James said he was impressed with what he saw from the Gators.

"It was a very intense game, it was a close game," James said. "The second half, Florida came out and got their swag going on and got two touchdowns back-to-back with Mike Gillislee and the defense shut them down."
