South Florida is stacked with talent for the Class of 2015.

One of the top 2015 prospects is Coconut Creek (Fla.) Monarch athlete Shawn Burgess-Becker who now has a top four.

My top four are Alabama, LSU, Florida and Miami,” Becker said. “I took a visit to all of those schools and met the coaches and I could see myself at each one of those schools. Each of those schools are recruiting me as an athlete and say that I can fit in anywhere.”

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Becker visited Florida during July and had a good visit to Gainesville.

“It was good to visit them,” Becker said. “I sat down with coach (Will) Muschamp and coach T-Rob and met some of the players. It was just a good experience there and they told me that if I choose Florida, that I could play wherever I feel comfortable at.”

Becker, who is considered one of the top 2015 prospects in the country, said that his meeting with Will Muschamp went well.

“Coach Muschamp  was just telling me to go ahead and take my visits, don’t commit anywhere early,” Becker said. “He said take your visits and see who you like the most. They were not going to tell me to come there, but they said they want me at Florda. He said he wanted me to take visits and have a fun time and get that experience. And when it’s time to get down to business, I can make a decision. He was straight and to the point with me.”

While Becker is still early in the process, he says he has a good relationship with Florida. Although, Becker says one team is recruiting him harder than others.

“Alabama is recruiting me the hardest right now,” Becker said. “When it comes down to signing day next year, I want to see who still wants me the most and that’s where I’ll go.”

This fall, Becker plans to check out all of his final four schools for a game. He will see Florida play Miami and be in Tuscaloosa for the LSU vs. Alabama game.
