Florida Director of Football Operations has left the University of Florida and it's a loss that is already hitting recruits across the nation. From top Florida Offensive Tackle John Theus to top North Carolina running back Keith Marshall expressing the loss of this great recruiter. The majority of Florida's success in recruiting has come from Pantoni's work behind the scenes, while other coaches take credit. He is a major reason for the success of Florida summer camp, Friday Night Lights.Pantoni was able to get recruits from across the nation to attend the camp on there own dime. He was the man behind the curtain and his impact will be felt in Florida's recruiting.

A look into the future: 2013 Saint Petersburg Catholic HS Running Back Ryan Green


This is the first part of a series I will be doing on 2013 prospects that have Florida State offers. Today we look at Saint Petersburg Catholic High School RB/CB Ryan Green Height: 5'10 Weight: 195 Offers:Notre Dame, Florida, Florida State, Kentucky, and Purdue 2011 Stats: 125 carries, 1069 yard , 14 TD 8.5 YPC Evaluation of film: A projected every-down college back with game-breaking speed, Green is one of the top backs in the state of Florida.The first thing you notice about Ryan Green is that he makes it look so easy. Part of this is the competition(3A) he plays against, but it also has to do with his 10.9 100 meter speed he possess. Green possess this excellent straight line speed with elite agility and great feet, which is one reason why some colleges are projecting him as a corner back. He possess great hands out of the backfield and will even run some routes out of the slot. Green has ideal size at 195lbs and a compact body structure, this guy is extremely quick-twitched and is a threat to rip off a huge run at any time. There is a reason why Ryan Green is one of only a few 2013 running backs who have offers from the Big 2(FSU/Florida). Top 30 player in Florida in my opinion for the 2013 class Background on Ryan Green: Green has visited multiple colleges this year including FSU. He was a participant at Jimbo FIsher Camp this past summer, were he received a verbal offer from the Florida State staff after an outstanding showing. He has multiple family members who have attended Florida State, including his sister. Additional Junior Highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkmkVhg4OrE

Most recruiting analyst consider Huff a top 10 prospect in Alabama due to his combination of sub 4.5(electronic) speed, 195lbs size, and impressive feet. He clams a verbal offer from FSU and visited during the Oklahoma game this year. His former teammate is FSU QB Jacob Coker.
