Heading into his third year as Florida's head coach, it appears as though Will Muschamp finally has his plan in place for the most part, thus cutting down on huge amounts of turnover in the roster.

In the last update 12 different players were taken off the scholarship breakdown (Stephen Alli, Willie Bailey, Jacoby Brissett, Matt Elam, Sherrif Floyd, Jelani Jenkins, Chris Johnson, Kendrick Johnson, Matt Patchan, Jordan Reed, Tommy Jordan and De'Ante Saunders) due to transfer, early graduation, early entry to the NFL and medical hardship.

In this update, only Jessamen Dunker has been removed from the list of scholarship players.

The breakdown below shows that Florida currently stands with 82 players on scholarship, three under the NCAA maximum of 85.

As far as football is concerned, it is the most stocked the roster has been during the Muschamp era at Florida. During his first season, he was 10-12 players under the limit.

As for recruiting, as it stands now, Florida has the three open scholarships to go with 12 scholarship seniors. That is a baseline class of 15. It is all but a given, unless they fall flat on their face or are injured, that Florida will lose at least two juniors to the NFL. That puts the class size at 17 before attrition sets in - and it always dose.

Therefore, with just normal attrition, Florida is looking at a signing a class in the 21-23 range.

Notes: Clark & Ferris are former walk-ons who were awarded scholarships and are listed below. The late addition quarterback Chris Wilkes is an invited walk-on, thus not listed below. Brad Phillips may have been awarded a scholarship, but as a senior, it won't change the numbers goig forward.

I go back through each of these recruiting class threads and note which ones left. My plan is to keep updating these years later with "where are they now".

I forgot to add TeAndre Goolsby. He committed last week. See first page of this post.

Found this about our new QB:
His school is an Independent in the state of North Carolina…..he plays a cupcake for a schedule! I’m sure the kid is a great QB but when you play in the easiest classification in the state of NC and an extremely easy schedule every year who wouldn’t have crazy stats! Hopefully for Florida this kid pans out, but as an NC resident he isn’t even the best QB in the state. I’m thinking Florida is gonna learn about this kid the hard way….

@miltongator I will not speak badly about high school kids, so I will give him a chance. There are examples that go both ways with regards to statistics and small high schools. On one end you have John Brantley IV who broke the FHSAA record for touchdowns out of class 2B Ocala Trinity and was highly touted by Texas and Florida as a 4-star QB. Most would regard JB4 as a bust, but I give him credit for sticking out a tough situation and doing the best he could. On the other end you have Kerwin Bell who did well at class 1A Lafayette County High School, was not highly rated, was not offered a scholarship, and who walked on as the 8th QB on the depth chart.

This is why most schools recruit multiple QBs. Alabama and Auburn are each recruiting at least two 4 and 5-star QBs in the next class. Typically when Gator fans see more than one QB in the recruiting class we go nuts over which one is going to transfer. Meanwhile, other schools have multiple 4 and 5 star QBs on the roster simultaneously.

Give Will Grier a shot. You never know if he will be the next Kerwin Bell or Chris Leak or whatever.

Updated to add the following commitments:
  1. Ryan Sousa, WR, 6'1", 175, 12/2/2013
  2. Moral Stephens, TE, 6'3", 215, 12/12/2013
  3. David Sharpe, OT, 6'8", 275, 12/12/2013
This gives us 19 commitments. As of today, we have 67 players on scholarship, leaving room for 18 commitments.

Go ahead a strike off Dalvin Cook. As many suspected he has flipped to FSU. He did not want to compete with Kelvim Taylor for repetitions.

The loss of Cook was not a real surprise - a number of telling facts should have tipped us off.
No 1 is a kid never takes official visit to Florida. Red flag No 2 Cook takes an official to F$U skipping Gainesville. No 3, current player from Florida State for the most part congratulates DC on twitter for becoming a Seminole. No 4 we heard that the same day his 2015 teammate Devante Phillips decommits from Florida that apparently Cook calls the FSU coaching staff and tells them he is in. This was not a surprise - all signs pointed to this and the non believers couldn't accept the facts.

Cook seems like the kind prima donna that Florida does not need. Unfortunately he is a leader with a magnetic personality and will cause others to flip from UF to refSU. They are pulling away from us in terms of talent and momentum. The next few years will be tough unless we get an ace in the hole in terms of on-field leaders and dynamic coaches.

In a surprise move, Louisville OT Kavaris Harkless has de-committed from the Cardinals in light of Charlie Strong's move to Texas. Harkless is the 20th commitment of this class, and the third offensive lineman to commit despite the Gators not having an OL coach!

According to ESPN - "The Gators have 25 scholarships to fill in their Class of 2014. That includes 15 seniors, three early departures for the NFL and seven transfers. All of the transfers came from the offense -- two quarterbacks, three offensive linemen, a tight end and a fullback. So Florida can restock most of those positions with a QB, three OL and a TE among the early entrants. "

Five-star CB Jalen Tabor (Washington, D.C.) flipped from Arizona to Florida only a week after committing to the Arizona Wildcats during the 2014 Under Armour All-American Game. Last week he had the choices narrowed down to Arizona and Alabama. Florida and Maryland were ruled out sometime before the Under Armour Game. The early enrollee will step foot on campus Monday, according to multiple reports.

In related news, 2015 DB and lifetime Gator fan Deontai Williams committed to the Gators. Look for Deontai to be the anchor of the 2015 class, just as Quincy Wilson and Will Grier were the anchor of this 2014 class.

The same day that the class of 2014 gains DB Jalen Tabor, it loses DB Chris Lammons.

The same day that the class of 2014 gains DB Jalen Tabor, it loses DB Chris Lammons.
And the next day gains Deerfield Beach running back Brandon Powell has flipped to Florida. Powell is a 5-8, 185-pound back that was committed to Miami. We are starting to pick up steam
