Rivals.com’s Rivals100 and the 250 have come out. There are some differences from yesterday’s Scout300. Florida had three of its commitments — QB Jeff Driskel (32), RB Mike Blakely (40) and TE A.C. Leonard (57) — ranked in the top 100.
Florida came away with six commitments making the top 250. The Gators had seven ranked in Scout’s top 300.
Florida also saw one of its targets in Palm Beach Gardens defensive end Curt Maggitt make it into the Rivals250, coming in at No. 198.
Oh, and Driskel is still rated as the nation’s top quarterback, but didn’t get that elusive fifth star from the Rivals crew. Honestly, there wasn’t anything from his all-star week that was going to change their minds on that one. Besides, does a five-star Driskel mean more to Florida than a four-star one?
