Berkeley Prep athlete Nelson Agholor has received his fifth star from Scout.com.

The recruiting site reshuffled its list of top 300 prospects Wednesday and vaulted Agholor into the top 50. The safety is the highest-rated player from the area, coming in at No. 31.

Lakewood defensive end and Florida State commit Dante Fowler was 36th and the area’s only other five-star prospect.

Land O’Lakes tight end Kent Taylor is the country’s top tight end and the No. 63 overall prospect.

Other area players on Scout’s top 300: Armwood running back and Florida commit Matt Jones (No. 92), Jefferson defensive end Tyriq McCord (No. 182) and Pinellas Park linebacker and UF commit Jeremi Powell (No. 271).
