GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- With four-star defensive end DeMarcus Walker (Jacksonville, Fla./Sandalwood) announcing his commitment to Alabama on Friday evening, the Gators will now look at some options to replace the No. 24-ranked player in the country on their recruiting board.

Who else is left?

Ebenezer Ogundeko (Brooklyn, N.Y./Thomas Jefferson) is the most likely candidate. Ogundeko has Florida in his top three along with Syracuse and Notre Dame, and Ogundeko said he will take an official visit to Florida in the fall. Florida could also turn up the heat on Clemson commit Elijah Daniel (Avon, Ind./Avon), who had Florida at the top of his list for a while before committing to the Tigers. Penn State commit Garrett Sickels (Little Silver, N.J./Red Bank Regional) and four-star defensive end Jaylen Miller (Gaffney, S.C./Gaffney) are other possible targets. With limited scholarships available, Florida could also chose not to sign another defensive end.
