Aerospace Cubicle Engineer (ACE)
I would consider this class a big success. There were 33 scholarships available, irrespective of recruiting year, and the Gators pulled in 28. This means the Gators are at 80 scholarship athletes for the first time since maybe 2008 or 2009. This leaves plenty of room for preferred walk-ons and transfers between now and one year from now. The only positions that Coach Muschamp seems concerned about are tight end, kicker, and QB, mostly for experienced depth.
- The class took care of the void left by Mike Gillislee by taking in two RBs to back up or replace Matt Jones.
- The defensive secondary is so confident in Matt Elam's replacement--Nick Washington, Keanu Neal, Vernon Hargreaves III--that they have moved Louchiez Purifoy from CB to WR for the spring.
- The defensive line replaces Shariff Floyd with Jarran Reed, Jay-nard Bostwick, Darious Cummings, Joey Ivie, and Caleb Brantley.
