GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- It’s time to dip in to the GatorNation recruiting mailbag and answer the questions you want to know. Because of the amount of questions we’ve received, we won’t be able to get to all of them today, but we encourage you to ask your questions on our Insider fan forum, "The Chompions Club."

@TWelte15 - So after losing Jordan Jenkins, where are we with Darius Hamilton?

A: Hamilton and Jenkins are being recruited for two separate positions, so the loss of Jenkins to UGA shouldn’t affect Hamilton in one way or another. Hamilton wants to play defensive tackle, but at 6-foot-4, 245 pounds, it’s likely he will start off as a strong side defensive end and eventually move to tackle. That he is bringing his mom for an unofficial visit to Florida is big news for the Gators. He recently visited Gainesville and the fact his family is paying for another visit should tell you just how interested he is in the Gators.
