Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III was ranked by as the No. 17 overall player in college football.
"He was the most impressive cornerback in college football last season. He reminds me of former Gator Joe Haden," analyst Daniel Jeremiah said. Hargreaves III walked onto campus last summer with two NFL prospects at cornerback ahead of him -- Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson -- on the depth chart. No matter. Hargreaves earned a starting job anyway, leading the Gators in interceptions (three) and pass breakups (11), and ranking seventh with 38 tackles. "Florida has put a lot of good defensive backs in the NFL of late, but this guy could end up in a class by himself. As he becomes stronger, he is going to be able to shut down one side of the field by himself," Mike Huguenin said. Hargreaves III suffered a bone bruise to his ankle or left knee in practice last week (HC Will Muschamp was vague), but the injury isn't considered serious. Aug 10 - 7:11 PM

After leaving Thursday's practice on a cart, Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III only has a bone bruise, according to HC Will Muschamp.

Reporters wish-washed between the injury being to Hargreaves' ankle or left knee, saying the corner looked dejected after removing his pads. Muschamp does not necessarily have to tell the truth about injuries, and Dominique Easley's ACL tear last year comes to mind, but Hargreaves is Florida's best player so it might not be wise to not tell the truth. The sophomore might be the top corner in the country.

Scouts Inc. ranks Florida freshman CB Vernon Hargreaves III as the No. 2 underclassman in college football.

"Hargreaves has the potential to quickly develop into the best cornerback in the country," the trio of Todd McShay, Kevin Weidl, and Steve Muench write. "He possesses exceptional man-to-man coverage skills. He has excellent flexibility, which allows him to transition quickly out of breaks without losing balance, and flashes the top-end speed to run with receivers downfield." Florida State redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston tops the list. Hargreaves should only receive more playing time next year with multiple Gator corners likely declaring for the draft.

Florida freshman CB Vernon Hargreaves III has registered three interceptions in four games this season.

He also has four passes defensed, bringing his total to seven. The Gators already had a talented group at corner with Loucheiz Purifoy, Jalyen Watkins, and Marcus Roberson, but Hargreaves III has already earned a full time role. He is already a stud.
