After losing talent to this year’s NFL draft, the Florida Gators show promise with a strong recruiting class.
The Florida Gator’s football team lost double-digit numbers to the draft, including five players with remaining eligibility. Gator fans breathe a sigh of relief after head coach, Jim McElwain, brings in an impressive top-ten recruiting class.
Gators made sure to replenish their secondary early by adding six new defensive backs. One being the younger brother of former Gator standout, Quincey Wilson, Macro Wilson. Filling in some small holes along the defensive and offensive line, Gators add six 4-star recruits. Adding to the already exuberant wide receiver position group, McElwain and his staff, sign unlikely signee James Robinson IV after he was cited for marijuana possession during his official visit at Ohio State University just weeks prior to National Signing Day.
A successful National Signing Day didn’t seem probable as the Gators lurked around a high-teens, maybe even twentieth ranked recruiting class but all in a day’s work, the Gators ended the day ranked amongst the nation’s best recruiting classes.
The Gators score 24 total commits to finish with the tenth ranked recruiting class in 2017.
The Gators have reloaded for a gauntlet of matchups coming this fall but still one thing remains uncertain. Who will play under center at quarterback?
