UF handing out new offers


With the new evaluation period now in full swing, Florida offered three 2016 prospects this week.

Four-star cornerback Jared Mayden was the first to receive an offer Monday night. The 6-foot, 190-pounder out of Texas (Sachse) is a consensus top-250 recruit and ranks 56th overall in the Scout 100.

On Tuesday UF offered wide receiver Kevin Stephenson (6-2, 180), a three-star prospect from Jacksonville First Coast. He also holds offers from LSU, Michigan and Notre Dame, among others.

But perhaps the most intriguing offer came Wednesday when three-star cornerback Jayvaughn Myers (6-1, 188) landed one after being evaluated by Florida secondary coach Kirk Callahan at Dade City Pasco.

Myers is the half-brother of five-star prospect Nate Craig-Myers, an Auburn commit who is UF’s top wide receiver target. Myers is also former teammates with UF defensive linemen Joey and Andrew Ivie.
