Quarterback: Four-star prospect and former Ohio State commitment Emory Jones has the skill set that fits coach Dan Mullen’s offense — and he’s already on campus ready to compete. Grade: A.
Running back: The Gators did a nice job filling this need, and like Jones, four-star prospects Dameon Pierce and Iverson Clement are already enrolled. Grade: A.
Wide receiver: Picking up two top prospects Wednesday — Jacob Copeland and Justin Watkins — is huge. Put them with the two transfers — Trevon Grimes and Van Jefferson — and the Gators have a big bump in talent at WR. Grade: A.
Tight end: Florida filled this need during the early signing period, picking up two good prospects in Kyle Pitts and Dante Lang. Grade: B+.
Offensive line: The Gators had hoped to sign at least five, but came up one short. Getting Richard Gouraige late was big. Grade: C.
Defensive line: The Gators avoided getting shut out here by the signing day surprise of four-star defensive end Malik Langham. Grade: D
Linebacker: The Gators would like to have signed four, but they’re certainly happy with the two they signed — four-star prospects David Reese and Andrew Chatfield. Grade: B.
Secondary: The Gators signed three DBs in December, but failed to add any Wednesday, so a need at cornerback was not met. Grade: C+.
Special teams: UF signed the nation’s No. 2 place-kicker, Evan McPherson, in December and he could be an instant starter this spring. Grade: A.
Overall: It’s tough putting together a strong transition class in such a short period of time, but Mullen and his staff pulled it off, adding some big-time prospects Wednesday to what was a very good early signing class. However, needs at cornerback and on both lines of scrimmage were not met. Grade: B-.
