Will Grier had the best performance of his senior year Friday night, and he only played one half of football.
The Army All-American set season-highs in yards (439), touchdowns (nine) and completion percentage (91.3 on 21-of-23 passing). Davidson (N.C.) Day shutout Concord Cannon, 59-0.
Perhaps even better news for Gator fans is the strength of Grier’s pledge following Florida’s loss to Vanderbilt over the weekend. He has been one of the most solid verbal commitments in UF’s 2014 class, and the four-game losing streak hasn’t changed that.
Grier posted this on his Instagram account Monday: “High school football has gone by quick. I’m going to miss playing on Friday nights when it’s over, but then again I am ready to start the next chapter of my life at UF! I love Gator Nation.”
RB Dalvin Cook, Miami Central: Cook scored three times and rushed for 136 yards on 19 carries in a 28-3 win against Fort Lauderdale University School and fellow UF commit, cornerback Quincy Wilson.
ATH J.C. Jackson, Immokalee: Jackson caught two touchdown passes and recorded 10 tackles in a 32-29 victory over South Fort Myers.
WR Ermon Lane, Homestead: Lane accounted for 100 total yards (80 receiving, 20 rushing) in the final game of his high school career — a 34-21 loss to South Dade.
TE C’yontai Lewis, Alabaster (Ala.) Kingwood Christian: Lewis had a team-high five catches for 47 yards and also made eight tackles on defense to help his team take home a 36-21 playoff win at Greenville (Ala.) Fort Dale Academy.
