While everyone is focused on signing day for 2013, it's time for us to look at the 2014 prospects for the FlaVarsity160.

First up - the quarterbacks. Florida has a plethora of good signal callers on the docket for 2014, but 2015 may be an even better year.

But breaking down the signal callers is no easy task. We follow up today with the pro-style quarterbacks. Here's a look at five to watch for the upcoming season. To find out more information on each player, just click on the player's name for a complete Rivals.com profile.

Dual Threat Quarterbacks
Chase Litton

6-foot-6 | 195| Wharton (Tampa, Fla) | Pro-style QB


The Buzz: Litton led the Wildcats to a first-round playoff berth, and performed very well. Litton threw for 2732 yards, averaging 249 yards a game. He had 23 touchdowns passing in 2012. The only knock on him is he tries to force the ball from time to time - given his size and strength - and threw 10 interceptions. He's not a running QB but stays in the pocket very well. Litton received his first offer from Les Miles and LSU but many more to come.


Schools in the mix: LSU, USF, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame

Sean White
6-foot-2 | 204 | Chaminade-Madonna (Hollywood, Fla.) | Pro Style QB


The Buzz:White has the size and accuracy to play at the next level. He has a very strong arm and throws a very tight spiral. He reads defenses very well and is patient. White will be a third-year starter next year and has thrown for 4878 yards and 58 touchdowns in two seasons. Only ten interceptions (7 in his junior year) so he protects the ball well.

Schools in the mix: Wake Forest, Florida State, Boston College, Miami

John Wolford

6-foot-1 | 209 | Bishop Kenny (Jacksonville, Fla.) | Pro Style QB


The Buzz: Wolford is speedy and smart. A 4.69 40 time and a 3.93 GPA at Bishop Kenny - not too shabby. He has had the luxury of throwing to his brother Bobby Wolford two years ago - along with Ahmad Fulwood last year and this year. We'll see if he's the quarterback we think he is - without Fulwood. Wolford did lead the Crusaders to a regional final, before losing to Godby (then again everyone else did except Wakulla) Offers have begun to flow during the spring.

Schools in the mix: Mississippi State, Charlotte , Idaho, Vanderbilt, Boston College

Colby Brown

6-foot-1 | 185| Plant (Tampa, Fla.) | Pro Style QB


Buzz: Brown struggled a little last year with Plant's reshaped offensive line after the loss of Richy Klepal but still guided the Panthers to a playoff berth, a district championship and a second-round appearance. He was a bit inconsistent in his choices, throwing for 11 touchdowns to go with 10 interceptions, but had over 1700 yards total passing. With a year under his belt, he's likely to follow in the footsteps of the namesakes - Marve, Murray, Ely and Few - four great QB's that led Plant to title game appearances.


Schools in the mix: USF, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Kansas, Florida State

Bud Martin

6-foot-2 | 210| Dillard (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)| Pro Style QB


The Buzz: Martin earned an invite to the US Army All-American Underclassmen combine this past January and made the most of it. He was named an honorable mention in the QB competition - which included some heavy hitters like Jones, OKla. QB David Cornwell and Naples QB Kilton Anderson. Martin's arm strength is good and he has some targets to throw to - which is always nice.

Schools in the mix:Miami, Georgia, Purdue, Vanderbilt, Penn State


Others that are on the 'Watch list':

Reid Carlton - Trinity Catholic (Ocala, Fla.) ; Nick Jeanty - Miramar (Miramar, Fla.) ; Trey Congdon - Lake Gibson (Lakeland, Fla.) ; Michael Scarnecchia -Fleming Island (Orange Park, Fla.) Cody Henry - Pensacola Catholic (Pensacola, Fla.)
