The recruiting class of 1994 sent 10 players to the NFL (11 if you count transfer Zach Piller), won a national championship, and won three SEC championships. This class also includes three Gator Greats who are in the University of Florida Athletic Association Hall of Fame.

The Gators missed out on recruiting future NFL players Peyton Manning (Tennessee), Antonio Ham (Miami), Deon Humphrey (FSU), and Zach Piller (Georgia Tech). Piller eventually returned to fold by transferring to Florida.
