Best Linebackers in Florida: Shaun Ward #3
Wowza. For comparison's sake, last year's #3 LB was a four star that went to Michigan. This is good. The report on him:

This ranking might be a little high for Ward, but he is a tremendous football player. An extremely talented pass-rusher who beat highly-touted senior offensive line prospect Chaz Green multiple times at Friday Night Lights. Ward is one of those ‘tweener prospects who would likely be a better fit as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, as opposed to playing in a traditional 4-3.

Chaz Green was 2010's 6th best OT. I also heard the phrase "embarrassed" when discussing how he played against Green. My excitement level for Ward just went up a notch...or four.
