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):
