Told you guys I was blown away by Tristan Payton, a 2015 WR for First Coast, on Friday night. He had 100+ receiving yards easily in the first half and was all over the field, making catches in traffic and juking guys left and right. Has very good size at 6 foot 1, 175 pounds.
Anyway, Chris Black (now at Alabama) has been tweeting me about him, letting me know how good he thinks he is. Believes he's a definite DI player and will really explode onto the scene this year. He has worked out with him a few times this offseason.
I chatted with First Coast coach Marty Lee for a bit and he told me that Payton hasn't really gotten much interest yet because teams haven't seen him play receiver yet. He had been playing quarterback and a few other spots. He, like me, thinks he'll blow up this year and start garnering some major DI interest now that he's at receiver. Anyway, just figured I'd pass it along and keep you apprised of how this kid does. I added a few photos of him to his profile.

Any film from his spring game?
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
I'll see if I can dig up any film on him. I didn't get any of him because I was keeping an eye mostly on Sherrod Pittman and CeCe Jefferson. He's brand new at receiver, so I doubt there will be much out there.
Hopefully we get an offer out soon if he is as good as advertised.

I think there will be some interest, for sure. One thing I saw that I really didn't like was how he carries the ball. Tends to palm it out from his body while juking guys. That can be coached out, though.
Here's an article from Gerry Hamilton about three weeks ago that mentions Payton. Hopes to be recruited by Florida, Florida State and USC.
First Coast High of Jacksonville has put out their fair share of highly south prospects in recent year, and there is more to come in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Fun little bump here.
Chris Black would have started here last year instead of getting garbage time at Bama.
Keen look back TG! Sounds like we got a star in the making
