GAINESVILLE, Fla. --With two early safety commits from Watch List players Nick Washington and Keanu Neal, Florida could realistically be done recruiting the position. But with so many talented safeties on Florida's board, the Gators are almost certain to take one or two more.
Tom Hauck for ESPN.comFive-star DB Nick Washington is Florida's seventh 2013 commit and third of the day.
Florida junior Matt Elam had a solid season in 2011, and with another strong year he could potentially leave early for the NFL draft. Josh Evans, who saw extensive action in 2011, will be a senior. The Gators are looking to add playmakers and depth to the safety position.
Committed: Nick Washington (Jacksonville, Fla./Trinity Christian) and Keanu Neal (Bushnell, Fla./South Sumter)
