Some rose, some fell and some made it in while some were left out.

That pretty much sums up the latest Rivals250 - released Wednesday.

While Florida featured no less than 16 players in the top 100 - 23 more were listed in the 101-250 spots, including South Sumter's Keanu Neal (at No. 250) and Miramar's Jermaine Grace.

Players like Milton's Isaiah Jones moved into the rankings (at No. 150) while others tumbled.

The biggest mover of all was Glades Central DB Will Likely - who tumbled from No. 79 to No. 183 in the latest listing.

"With Likely, as a group, we just had too many concerns over his size, specifically him being just 5-foot-7," said Rivals.com Florida analyst Chris Nee. "He slid some at cornerback while others moved ahead and that led to his dropping out of the 100."

"I still view him as an exceptional playmaker who is a great athlete," Nee continued. "But regardless his height is an issue that led to his value being decreased in comparison to others at his position."

Caleb Brantley of Crescent City is the highest ranked Florida player in the 101-250 listing - coming in at 109. Jacksonville Sandalwood's Demarcus Walker moved up 32 spots to No. 120.
