Florida aces 2010 recruiting test
Originally Published: February 3, 2010By Scouts Inc. | ESPN.com
A team-by-team look at the recruiting classes in the SEC. Ronald Powell (Corona, Calif./Rancho Verde) and Dominique Easley (Staten Island, N.Y./Curtis) respectively. Those two are just part of a fine defensive line haul, which also includes Sharrif Floyd (Philadelphia/George Washington) and Leon Orr (New Port Richey, Fla./Gulf). The Gators addressed a need by signing an outstanding defensive back class headlined by Under Armour All-American and five-star safety Jonathan Dowling (Bradenton, Fla./Southeast) as well as four-star cornerbacks Josh Shaw (Palmdale, Calif./Palmdale) and Jaylen Watkins (Fort Meyers, Fla./Cape Coral). Furthermore, five-star athlete Matt Elam (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla./Dwyer) will likely play DB. Running back Mack Brown (Lithonia, Ga./Martin Luther King) could be the big-play feature back that has eluded Florida in the past. Coming into signing day with the No.1 class, the Gators continued to impress on the big day with the signature of one of the top offensive tackles in the country Chaz Green (Tampa, Fla./Tampa Catholic). DeMarcus Milliner (Millbrook, Ala./Stanhope Elmore) and John Fulton (Manning, S.C./Manning). The Tide signed a great pair of defensive ends in Under Armour All-Americans Adrian Hubbard (Norcross, Ga./Norcross) and Alfy Hill (Shallotte, N.C./West Brunswick). The duo will likely compete for playing time in that Jack role. Alabama also signed the premier quarterback in 2010 in the strong armed and athletic Phillip Sims (Chesapeake, Va./Oscar Smith).
