The colleges and universities in Florida will enjoy the fact that many in-state recruits will be staying in-state to continue their athletic careers. In examining the nationally ranked recruits on websites such as scout.com, ESPNU's Top 300 and Rivals.com, the majority of eligible athletes which will sign letters of intent on February 5th will be attending schools in Florida. The breakdown is as follows:

Rivals.com-- 33 ranked players from Florida, 21 committed to in-state schools

ESPN.com-- 45 ranked players from Florida, 30 committed to in-state schools

Scout.com-- 33 ranked players from Florida, 20 committed to in-state schools

Of Miami, newly crowned National Champion Florida St. and the University of Florida, each school is almost equal with the number of in-state recruits (Miami: 23, FSU: 24, UF: 20). Miami Central H.S. and Booker T. Washington H.S. have notable 2014 recruits staying in-state such as:

Joseph Yearby, Central--Miami Trevor Darling, Central--Miami

Dalvin Cook, Central--Florida St.

Chad Thomas, BTW--Miami

Treon Harris, BTW--Florida St.

University of South Florida has two commits from Florida High School prep athletes (Ryshene Bronson, WR, Dunbar H.S., Kendall Sawyer, CB, East Lee Cty H.S.) and although their football program is young compared to the above schools, they are benefiting from the talented crop of athletes this year in Florida.
