As we start winding down the 2019 recruiting season, the Gators have the #24 class in the nation, #11 in the SEC. The Gators have 15 hard commitments, with 8 of them being 4-star athletes. Nothing has changed for this class since the midseason (1 more commitment for the class of 2020 and 2021), but the surprise turnaround has increased buzz as both Miami and FSU are floundering right now. Here is the current class of 2019 (with the usual caveats that nothing is official until LOIs are signed):
  1. DB Trent Whittemore 6-3 185. Bucholz High School. Gainesville FL. NR yet. 5.28.2017 commitment.
  2. OT Wardrick Wilson 6-4 295. Norland High School. Miami FL. 3 * 7.21.2017 Commitment.
  3. ATH Ja'Markis Weston 6-3 195. Clewiston High School. Clewiston, Florida. NR Yet. 7.28.2017 commitment.
  4. WR Dionte Marks 5-11 178. Deland High School. Deland, Florida. 3 *
    2.24.2018 commitment.
  5. OT Ethan White 6-5 315. Superior Collegiate Academy. Clearwater,Florida. 4 *. 3.23.2018 commitment.
  6. QB Jalon Jones 6-3 180. Saint Frances Academy, Baltimore, Maryland. 4*. 4.7.2017 commitment.
  7. OLB Tyron Hopper 6-2 205. Roswell High School. Roswell, Georgia. 4*. 4.26.2018 commitment.
  8. DT Jaelin Humphries 6-3 303. Mountainview High School. Lawrenceville, Georgia. 4*. 6.5.2018 commitment.
  9. OG Riley Simonds 6-4 324. Buford High School. Buford, Georgia. 3*. 6.20.2018 commitment.
  10. OLB Jesiah Pierre 6-2 220. Christian Home and Bible School. Mount Dora, Florida. 3*. 7.2.2018 commitment.
  11. ILB Diwun Black 6-4 216. Forest High School. Forest, Mississippi. 4*.
    8.2.2018. Commitment.
  12. CB Chester Kimbrough 5-11 170. Warren Easton High School. New Orleans, Louisiana. 4*.
    8.13.2018. Commitment.
  13. OLB Mohamoud Diabate 6-4 215. Auburn High School. Auburn, Alabama. 4*.
    8.22.2018. Commitment.
  14. OT William Harrod 6-5 315. National Christian Academy. Fort Washington, Maryland. 4*

  15. CB Jaydon Hill 6-0 174. Bob Jones High School. Madison, Alabama. 4*
    9.6.2018. Commitment.
The hottest prospects to watch for (only counting recruits who have taken official or unofficial visits to UF):
  • RB Trey Sanders, 6-0 214 IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL) 5* - uncommitted, Alabama lean
  • RB Nay'Quan Wright 5-8 188 Miami Carol City HS (Opa Locka, FL) 4* - uncommitted, 8.31.2018 officially visits UF. 10.6.2018 unofficially visits UF.
  • SDE Byron Young 6-4 285 West Jones HS (Laurel, MS) 4* - Alabama commit, 10.5.2018 visit to UF
  • WR Elijah Higgins 6-3 214 Bowie HS (Austin, TX) 4* - uncommitted, Stanford lean, 10.5.2018 visit to UF
  • CB Jaydon Hill 6-0 174 Bob Jones HS (Madison, AL) 4* - Florida commit, 10.5.2018 visit to UF
  • S Lewis Cine 6-2 180 Trinity Christian School (Cedar Hill, TX) 4* - Georgia commit, 10.5.2018 visit to UF
  • SDE Justin Eboigbe 6-5 263 Forest Park HS (Forest Park, GA) 4* - Alabama commit, 9.8.2018 visit to UF
  • TE Keon Zipperer 6-2 240 Lakeland HS (Lakeland, FL) 4* - uncommitted [rumor 50/50 Florida or Miami], 10.6.2018 and 7.27.2018 unofficial visits to Florida, 7.28.2018 unofficial visit to Miami, 9.7.2018 Miami visits Keon. 10.6.2018 unofficial visit to Florida. 11.16.2018 official visit to Alabama.
  • WDE Lloyd Summerall 6-6 218 Lakeland HS (Lakeland, FL) 4* - uncommitted, Florida lean, 10.6.2018 and 7.27.2018 unofficial visits to Florida, one each September unofficial visits to FSU and Miami in between. Official visits to Nebraska and Miami later in the season.
  • CB Chris Steele 6-1 187 St John Bosco (Bellflower, CA) 4* - uncommitted, former USCw lean, do USCw 10.18.2018. 5.18.2018 unofficial visit to Florida. 6.1.2018 official visit to Florida. Other official visits include USCe.
  • CB Kaiir Elam 6-0 190 The Benjamin School (North Palm Beach, FL) 4* - uncommitted, [rumor 50/50 Florida or Georgia], 3.28.2018 unofficial visit to Florida, many unofficial visits to other schools since. Nephew to Gator Matt Elam.
The Gators are serious contenders for all of these recruits, but multiple sources predict the Gators will likely sign 5-6 of them. The Gators are also considering some of these recruits:
  • 4* DE Khris Bogle -Miami/Tennessee/Alabama with UF in the picture. 11.3.2018 unofficial visit to Florida.
  • 4* DL Jaren Handy - Auburn commitment on watch for Gator fans.
  • 4* DL Quashon Fuller - committed to FSU but is on watch for a flip
  • 4* Derick Hunter - committed to FSU but is on watch for a flip
  • 4* DL Nathan Pickering -committed to Mississippi State but has a long relationship with Dan Mullen. 11.16.2018 official visit to Florida.
  • 4* LB J.D. Bertrand de-committed from Georgia, and is now open for Florida and others
  • 4* OL Michael Tarquin - committed to Miami but continues to visit Gainesville.
    • Committed 12.2.2018.
  • 4* OL Deyavie Hammond attends Lakeland High school with Summerall & Zipperer.

I think we’ll do well—though how we’ll ultimately be “RANKED” will be fluid til the very end, and for several reasons—both because we are in strong right-down-to-the-wire competition with our two traditional “big time cross-state rivals” all over the state (and position-wise all over the FIELD), BOTH of whom are having off years, AND because our COACH is necessarily out to fill specific NEEDS, but after “his kind of guys” in general . This second part could have us bringing in some different prospects than “everyone ELSE” might be focusing on.
It’s as exciting as (and as far as our future goes, even more important THAN) the actual scores and outcomes of these last handful of actual games this season. All WE can do is sit back, watch and HOPE...and even then we won’t KNOW anything for sure for months, at LEAST...

Would really like to see is get ONE of those two RBs (which is the likeliest outcome there--one or the OTHER, though getting BOTH would. with our O-line pickups, have us pretty well set in the running game for years to come), plus the TE "Keon", a future star at a podition that has underutilized by the Gator offense for far too long, but IS likely looming large in Dan Mullen's future offensive design for us...beyond those two or (were we to be truly fortunate) three, we fill out our "dance card" from the rest of that list (higher the better), we'll be MORE than "FINE".
