Florida safety Marcus Maye comes in at No. 51 in SI's ranking of the top 100 college football players for the 2016 season.
Maye surprised many with his decision to return for his redshirt junior season. By joining other budding stars (Jalen Tabor, Caleb Brantley), Maye will be a key component on one of the nation’s finest defenses. An All-America honoree last season, Maye finished with 82 tackles and five forced fumbles, good for second in the nation. A punishing safety, Maye enters 2016 as one of the top defensive backs in the nation. — GB
