I would not be concerned at all. We have Florida at No. 13 in our class rankings. Limited numbers means the bulk of their current roster is young and intact which is a good thing. Sometimes fans falsely equate low numbers with a poor class when it’s actually the exact opposite. We think RB Dalvin Cook, the No. 20 prospect in the ESPN 300, is this year’s Ryan Green from the 2013 class. He could be special and a game-breaking type back. The Gators got the QB they wanted all along -- dual-threat quarterback Will Grier -- and got him early which was smart. They have continued to add to the secondary with Duke Dawson and J.C. Jackson which is a position of need for them. More than half of Florida's class is in the ESPN 300 and includes additions at each of the four premium positions -- defensive end, offensive tackle, quarterback and cornerback.
