At this point it's probably safe to classify Bill Belton as an elite prospect.
The offer list rarely lies and the 5-foot-9, 191-pound athlete from New Jersey has one that's impressive and getting larger every week.
Recently some big-time programs have been expressing their interest and the offers keep rolling in. Florida and Oregon are the two latest schools to put offers on the table.

"I found out Oregon was offering today," Belton said on Monday evening. "They came by the school and I talked to coach Scott Frost. He said they were going to offer. I think Oregon's a great school. With them being in the Pac 10 that's a very competitive conference. I'm definitely going to look at Oregon.
"My coach actually told me Florida was offering today. Coach Chuck Heater had talked to my coach and he was saying they were going to offer me as a defensive back. Florida has done great things the last couple of years winning national championships. Basically they get the top talent and I think very highly of Florida."
Belton said he definitely plans on visiting both Florida and Oregon at some point, whether it's over the summer or during the period of time set aside for official visits later in the year.
On Saturday he learned from his coach that Nebraska, Georgia Tech, Duke and Vanderbilt had also sent offers his way.
"I want to get out to some schools this summer but I still have to talk it over with my parents," he noted.
Belton plans on taking his official visits before he makes his decision.
