Quarterback: Dan Mullen and the coaching staff targeted four-star prospect Jalon Jones early (back when Mullen was at MSU) and he signed in December and is already enrolled. Grade: B+
Running back: Even with Jordan Scarlett leaving early this was not a huge need, but the Gators added a potentially explosive back in four-star prospect Nay’Quan Wright. Grade: B.
Wide receiver: As expected, the Gators added four-star prospect Arjai Henderson on Wednesday, giving UF three in the class. Mullen really loves Ja’Markis Weston, a three-star prospect from Clewiston with a huge upside. Grade: B+
Tight end: No drama here. The Gators picked up Keon Zipperer, one of the nation’s top TE prospects, during the early-signing period. Grade: B+
Offensive line: At a huge position of need, the Gators scored big here, signing seven during the early-signing period, including four four-star recruits — Deyavie Hammond, Wardrick Wilson, William Harrod and Michael Tarquin. Grade: A.
Defensive line: The Gators made adding another tackle a priority for National Signing Day, but came up empty, even though they are happy with who they did sign — tackle Jaelin Humphries and end Lloyd Summerall. Grade: B.
Linebacker: The Gators closed big here, adding Alabama commit Khris Bogle and longtime UF commitment Diwun Black on Wednesday morning. Put them with the early signees — Mohamoud Diabate, Ty’Ron Hopper and Jesiah Pierre — and this may be the best LB recruiting class in the nation. Grade: A.
Secondary: The Gators filled their critical need at cornerback by adding four-star recruit Kaiir Elam to go along with early signee Chris Steele. UF signed three corners and one safety. Grade: A.
Overall: Mullen and his staff came up a little short on the defensive line, especially at tackle, but met needs at quarterback, wide receiver, offensive line, linebacker and cornerback. Picking up Elam and Bogle on Wednesday was big, pushing UF’s class into the top 10 nationally. Grade: A-.
