Hard Commits
The following 6 recruits maintained their commitment to Florida from Mullen's staff. 2 of them are expected to sign to the #ChosenFew22 for ESD.
- K Trey Smack 6-2 200 Severna Park HS, Severna Park, Maryland. 3-star. 6.23.2021.
- DL Jamari Lyons 6-4 295 Viera HS, Melbourne, Florida. 4-star. 10.6.2021.

The following recruit is the first hard commitment to Napier's staff after flipping from Louisiana. He is expected to fax his LOI without much fanfare.

Predictions
I predict that by end of ESD the Gators will sign all 7 hard commitments, and 3 from the ESD watch list. If any of the 8 deferrals from the ESD watch list elects to postpone to NSD then I expect them to sign with Florida in February.

Here is the 1 hard commit for NSD:
- IOL Jalen Farmer 6-5 325 Eastside, Covington, Georgia. 3-star. 9.10.2021. Verbal commitment.
Here is the 1 transfer that counts against this class:
- DL Tyrone Truesdell 6-3 325 Laney HS, Augusta, Georgia (2017) by way of Auburn University
Here are the ones we whiffed on:
- CB Julian Humphrey 6-1 185 Clear Lake HS, Houston, Texas. 4-star. Georgia signee.
- ATH Azareyeh Thomas 6-1 177 Niceville HS, Niceville, Florida. 4-star. FSU signee.

Here are the ones we can still target for NSD:
- LB Harold Perkins 6-2.5 210 Cy Park HS, Cypress, Texas. 5-star.
- DL Shemar Stewart 6-6 272 Monsignor Pace, Opa Locka, Florida. 5-star.
- S Jacoby Mathews 6-2 193 Ponchatoula HS, Ponchatoula, Louisiana. 4-star.
- RB Tre'Vonte Citizen 6-0 217 Lake Charles College Prep, Lake Charles, Louisiana. 4-star.
- RB Trevor Etienne 5-10 200 Jennings HS, Jennings, Louisiana. 4-star.
- TE Danny Lewis 6-4 235 Westgate, New Iberia, Louisiana. 3-star. Cincinnati commitment.
- DL Derrick Moore 6-4 250 St. Frances Academy, Baltimore, Maryland. 4-star.
- WR Decoldest Crawford 6-1 178 Green Oaks HS, Shreveport, Louisiana. 3-star.
- DL Maxi Badoin IV 6-3 290 Ascension Episcopal, Lafayette, Louisiana. 3-star.
If Florida signs three 4-stars and fourteen 3-stars the class should end up with a score of 253, which is #9 in the nation. Right now with 9 signees and a hard commitment the score is 164.79, which is #50 in the nation. Napier warned us that the ESD class would be small, and this is definitely true. For comparison, the following schools have 24+ signees: Texas A&M (#1), Alabama (#2), Georgia (#3), Texas (#5), Penn State (#6), Michigan (#9). Every team ranked above Florida has 12 commitments or more, with the average being 18.

@Escambia94,
So...”lean” when it comes to “quantity”, but pretty damn “rich” in “quality”, as it turns out: That is, this was a somewhat encouraging “come back” this morning, relatively speaking, when one considers how things seemed to be (NOT) shaping up the last few days/weeks leading UP to ESD!
If this trend holds, by your own (somewhat conservative) expectations (for “by NSD”, stated above) it seems at least a “Top Ten” finish is not beyond us.
If the “quality over quantity” trend holds, the rest of what we’ve seen (priority given to assembling a Coaching staff, then a clear stress on honesty, loyalty, and TEAM) should all combine to serve us well in eventually consistently assembling and holding onto recruiting classes that compete with, even surpass our SEC competitors’ once more in seasons ahead.
How do YOU see it, E—?
Am I simply “blinded by a sense of relief”, my depressed expectations easily exceeded, leading to an OVER-estimation?
I just feel there is now cause for some hope for “a good START”!

As I noted elsewhere, all the attention to adding to our staff, and THEIR accent on getting more for the PLAYERS has been noted and already had a positive effect on incoming talent.
We may end up making dramatic gains this off-season after all—and that will likely only keep getting better.
I will say no more for now; Suffice it to say, I am no longer “assuming the worst”.
Let’s wait and see what we’ve got, and what they (the burgeoning staff) are DOING with it come the Spring Game, and on into next Summer!
