With roughly seven spots remaining in Florida’s 2010 class, the Gators have a chance to bring a boatload of talent. Many of these Rivals100 prospects have high interest in Florida.


  1. Now, more than ever, the Gators need a STRONG finish in recruiting. A bad finish like last year will set the program back another 2 years. With the talented players we have returning next year, we should be competitive in the East.

  2. I beg to differ with the comment about a bad finish last year. We lost Greg Reid due to so much depth on defense and the violations that UT pulled behind the scenes to get Knukeese, which of course turned out as a blessing in disguise for us. Other than those two, that was it, so what bad finish are you referring to TampaDave? It was still a top 10 class and top 5 by ESPN and those kinds of classes don’t set you back at all. We are currently in the reloading stage of Meyers tenure at Florida. We are not going backwards and to think we are is just plain uninformed.
