GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida coach Will Muschamp was all smiles on signing day, officially announcing his fourth recruiting class.

The Gators signed all 13 of their commits with no drama and added two more for a total of 24. UF moved up one spot to finish at No. 6 in ESPN's class rankings, just missing a third consecutive top five class.

We've already looked at Florida's nine early enrollees in this class. Here's a breakdown of the 15 who were added on Wednesday.

David Sharpe | Scouting report
Jacksonville, Fla./Providence School
Height/Weight: 6-foot-6, 288 pounds Ranking: No. 20 overall, No. 2 offensive tackle
How he fits: After splitting time between football and basketball in high school, Sharpe will focus solely on offensive tackle, where he has tremendous potential. "He's got great feet," Muschamp said. "You can't coach that." Sharpe is a terrific athlete who will play a position of great need at Florida, but there's a good chance he'll redshirt considering how much he still has to learn and grow.

Gerald Willis III | Scouting report
New Orleans/Edna Karr
Height/Weight: 6-3, 275 Ranking: No. 42 overall, No. 2 defensive tackle
How he fits: One of UF's recruiting prizes, Willis will have a chance to play right away because of his mature game and versatility. Like Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley, Willis can play inside or at strong-side end. "He really uses his hands very well," Muschamp said, "better than most high school defensive linemen."

Thomas Holley | Scouting report
Brooklyn, N.Y./Lincoln
Height/Weight: 6-4, 303 Ranking: No. 51 overall, No. 3 defensive tackle
How he fits: A basketball player for much of his high school career, Holley is a raw talent but one with perfect measurables to be a dominant presence inside. The Florida coaching staff loves the idea of developing an explosive athlete with Holley's size.

J.C. Jackson | Scouting report
Immokalee, Fla./Immokalee
Height/Weight: 6-0, 185 Ranking: No. 79 overall, No. 11 athlete
How he fits: With four upperclassmen gone, there is a lot of opportunity at cornerback. Jackson stuck with the Gators in order to take advantage of it. An explosive athlete with good size, Jackson also has a chance to contribute as a special teams return man.

Treon Harris | Scouting report
Miami/Booker T. Washington
Height/Weight: 5-11, 186 Ranking: No. 163 overall, No. 7 dual-threat quarterback
How he fits: With Kurt Roper bringing the spread and option back into UF's offense, it was imperative that Florida add to its QB depth with an athlete. Harris is that and more. Not the most-polished passer, he sometimes looks like a scatback when plays break down. But his instincts and ability to improvise could put him in the mix to compete for backup minutes this fall.

Moral Stephens | Scouting report
Perry, Fla./Taylor County
Height/Weight: 6-3, 200 Ranking: No. 201 overall, No. 27 wide receiver
How he fits: Much like Jordan Reed and Aaron Hernandez, Stephens has the look of a playmaker at tight end and H-back once he fills out a bit. The coaches were quick to add him to the class after a spot opened up when Kent Taylor transferred.

Khairi Clark| Scouting report
Hollywood, Fla./Chaminade
Height/Weight: 6-2, 329 Ranking: No. 211 overall, No. 16 defensive tackle
How he fits: A bull in the middle, Clark moves very well for his size. He might need a redshirt year to develop his technique, but there's no doubting his potential as a run-stuffing, lane-clogging tackle.

Justus Reed | Scouting report
Clearwater, Fla./Central Catholic
Height/Weight: 6-3, 215 Ranking: No. 285 overall, No. 25 defensive end
How he fits: Muschamp called Reed "a very explosive guy" and a hybrid outside linebacker/defensive end who probably needs to redshirt to add about 20 pounds.

Quincy Wilson | Scouting report
Fort Lauderdale, Fla./University School
Height/Weight: 6-1, 197 Ranking: No. 292 overall, No. 15 safety
How he fits: With a good blend of size and speed, Wilson could play some cornerback. But Florida typically fields elite athletes there, so Wilson could bring his skills to the safety position, where the Gators have good depth.

Ryan Sousa | Scouting report
Orlando, Fla./Lake Nona
Height/Weight: 6-0, 177 Ranking: No. 47 wide receiver
How he fits: Another prospect who benefited from the Roper hire, Sousa flipped from FSU as soon as the Gators offered. He's smart, plays fast and was ultra-productive in the slot and outside. If he can do the same in Roper's offense, he'll get on the field quickly.

Travaris Dorsey | Scouting report
Jacksonville, Fla./Raines
Height/Weight: 6-3, 314 Ranking: No. 26 offensive guard
How he fits: He has the size to play in the trenches right away but could use some time to refine his technique. There's no doubt the physical attributes are there, as Muschamp cited Dorsey's "really good lower body, punch and power" as well as his long reach.

Andrew Mike | Scouting report
Tucson, Ariz./Sabino
Height/Weight: 6-6, 278 Ranking: No. 32 offensive tackle
How he fits: Muschamp admitted Mike was "a guy that we kind of lucked into" after Florida jumped into his recruitment very late and got a commitment the night before signing day. Still, the size, reach and athleticism scream SEC lineman after a redshirt year.

C.J. Worton | Scouting report
Homestead, Fla./South Dade
Height/Weight: 6-1, 171 Ranking: No. 77 wide receiver
How he fits: He's another signee in whom Florida's interest shot up after Roper took the reins of the offense. The coaching staff loves his competitiveness, and as usual, Florida has a tremendous need for playmakers at receiver. Like Sousa, he'll get a chance to work in the slot.

C'yontai Lewis | Scouting report
Tuscaloosa, Ala./Northridge
Height/Weight: 6-4, 230 Ranking: No. 15 tight end/H-back
How he fits: Lewis earned his scholarship last summer when he came to UF's camp and showed off great hands and athleticism. The coaching staff is excited about his potential to grow into the position, as he's already put on at least 20 pounds since then.

Deiondre Porter | Scouting report
Tampa, Fla./Thomas Jefferson
Height/Weight: 6-1, 167 Ranking: No. 50 pocket-passing quarterback
How he fits: Porter will get his first look in the defensive backfield. The coaching staff loves his speed and smarts, so he could stick as a corner or safety. He could also find a home at receiver or even play some quarterback in a pinch.
