Virginia quarterback Caleb Henderson is one of several top prospects in that state for 2014.
A banner recruiting cycle in the state of Virginia, another huge crop of talented prospects from Florida and a bevy of athletic playmakers highlight the most recent update to the Class of 2014 Top247.
We plan to work toward a release of the full list in the near future. We believe this to be the most accurate list at this time, but we do believe it will evolve as more talent is discovered and as the players themselves develop and perform.
Virginia has seven prospects (counting the three five-stars released previously) ranked inside the top 100- including quarterback Caleb Henderson (Lake Braddock) and defensive end Jalyn Holmes (Norfolk/Lake Taylor), who are both just outside of five-star status.
Florida has 15 prospects in the top 100, including three special defensive linemen in Kendrick Hair (Orlando/Jones), Trey Valentine (Palm Bay, Fla./Bayside) and DeMarcus Christmas (Bradenton, Fla./Manatee).
There are versatile, athletic playmakers throughout the field. One two-way star that stood out to us on film that may be more known moving forward is Jamoral Graham of Decatur (Miss.) Newton County. Urbandale (Iowa) athlete Allen Lazard is another prospect to watch in that regard.
Louisiana and South Carolina also look strong for 2014.
