Florida football is trying to establish themselves all across SEC country on the recruiting trail in an effort to pull elite players from every state.

They're starting to make their move on Tennessee now, offering up one of the top defenders that the state has to offer.

Jaylan Morgan, a 4-star safety from Rockvale High School, was offered by the Gators last night.

While it won't be easy to take him out of his home state, Billy Napier and his staff will be hard at work trying to get Morgan to come down south.

Florida football: Speed and aggression

Jaylan doesn't have the size yet of an SEC safety, standing at 6'0''-175. But he plays just as aggressively and as violently as the best of the best in the conference.

His ability to diagnose what the offense is doing and recognize plays from deep in the secondary is impressive, and he's able to fly downhill and make a hard hit on the ball carrier. He's forced his fair share of fumbles, and makes the ball carrier feel him when he gets there.

Morgan also gets reps at receiver, where he showcases his explosiveness and quickness in space on some long touchdowns, as well as his ability to go up and make a play on the ball.

On3's Industry Ranking has Jaylan ranked as the 199th-best player in the country, the 16th-best safety in the class, and the No. 6 player coming out of Tennessee. He's rated as high as the 128th-best player in the country and the No. 3 safety on Rivals.

Tennessee currently has a big lead for Morgan per On3's RPM with a 92.4% chance to land him, followed by Vanderbilt, Alabama, and Ole Miss.

Jaylan is yet to make a visit to Gainesville, so getting him on campus for the first time is priority number one. Once he gets familiar with the campus and the coaches, the Gators could become a real factor in his recruitment.
