SOCIAL: Follow on Twitter | Friend on Facebook

We continue the hot month of July with this look at the players who make up the FlaVarsity.com Pre-season 160.

We've already counted down from 160 to 141. Now let's take you down to 131 with ten more 'must-see' seniors from around Florida.

Pre-Season Evaluation
131. Bryant Gross
Defensive Back
6-foot-1 | 188 | American Heritage-Plantation
Buzz: A safety with blistering speed. His 4.38 speed comes in handy when closing on the ball. Will likely get a chance to play cornerback in college.
Schools in the mix:Rutgers, Purdue, Central Michigan, Tulane, Georgia State
132. Xavier Hines
Defensive Back
6-foot-0 | 175 | Belen Jesuit Prep
Buzz: Hines played both corner and safety last year. Finished with eight interceptions. He handles change of direction very well and is more quick than fast when breaking on the ball.
Schools in the mix:Temple, Western Michigan, Boston College, Florida International, Tulane
133. Malik Greaves
Defensive Back
6-foot-2 | 197 | Sandalwood
Buzz: Good pass coverage skills and size with closing speed. His height also helps when covering big receivers.
134. Leroy Clark
Defensive Back
5-foot-10 | 169 | Archbishop Carroll
Buzz: Very good pass coverage skills. As a junior, he recorded 13 interceptions. Good speed and breaks on the ball very well. Size is the only drawback.
Schools in the mix:Florida State, West Virginia, Illinois, Mississippi State, Ole Miss
135. James Clark
Linebacker
6-foot-2 | 210 | Sebastian River
Buzz: Clark is an inside linebacker with good pass rushing skills. As a junior, Clark recorded 52 tackles including 19 tackles for loss and eight sacks.
Schools in the mix:Florida, Auburn, South Florida, Georgia State, West Virginia
136. George Williams
Linebacker
5-foot-11 | 224 | Hialeah
Buzz: Williams plays inside linebacker and pursues the run very well. He plays some very fast competition and flows very well to the action.
Schools in the mix:Pitt, Minnesota, Louisville, LSU, Florida International
137. Jeremy Benjamin
Linebacker
6-foot-2 | 225 | McArthur
Buzz: Flows very quickly to the ball. He plays inside linebacker in high school but may see the outside due to his size and quickness. Good pass coverage skills.
Schools in the mix: Florida International, Wake Forest, Kentucky, West Virginia, Minnesota
138. Kyle Shortridge
Defensive Tackle
6-foot-2 | 273 | Seminole Ridge
Buzz: Big and strong, Shortridge is a big-time run-stopper up front. He's drawn some major looks and is one of the 'up-and-coming' players in our ranking. He needs a little more speed. Footwork is very solid.
Schools in the mix: Missouri, Boise State, Texas A&M, Georgia State, Tennessee
139. Dionte Taylor
Wide Receiver
6-foot-0 | 165 | University School
Buzz: Taylor has great hands and break-away speed. Teaming up with Jordan Cunningham will give Taylor more offensive opportunities, as most defenses can't cover both.
Schools in the mix: Bowling Green, Marshall, Cincinnati, Houston, Wake Forest
140. Shawn Curtis
Offensive Line
6-foot-5 | 270 | Olympia
Buzz: If working hard makes you stronger, Curtis may be 'He-Man' before the end of summer. He's spent time in camps and working on his blocking technique. He hopes to add a little weight, but not lose any quickness.
Schools in the mix: Louisville, Syracuse, Mississippi State, UConn, Purdue
