A few recruiting notes from the last week:

Rivals shuffled its rankings for the class of 2015. Tampa Bay Tech ATH Deon Cain was one of the big movers, jumping 69 spots to No. 164 on the list, which you can see here. Other locals are:

No. 3 Armwood five-star DE Byron Cowart

No. 16 East Lake five-star ATH George Campbell

No. 80 Plant four-star OL Jake Fruhmorgen

No. 105 Sickles four-star ATH Ray Ray McCloud III

No. 187 Nature Coast four-star OL Christian Pellage

Wharton’s Chase Litton claimed his first offer as a 2015 recruit, from Marshall. The three-star quarterback and former USF commit recently reclassified himself for next year’s recruiting class by planning to attend an Atlanta prep school this fall.

Freedom DE Scott Patchan added his latest SEC offer, from Missouri.

Pasco OL/DL Andrew Ivie landed his third scholarship offer, from UCF. The younger brother of current Gator Joey Ivie also holds offers from USF and Florida.

Georgia State gave Wiregrass Ranch LB Jaye Miner his second offer, after Marshall.

Nature Coast OL Christian Pellage continues to reel in offers. Among his latest: Ohio State, Tennessee, Mizzou and Duke.
