UF recruiting recap: Biggest needs met 

April, 12, 2012
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- With less than 10 months until national signing day, the Florida Gators have already filled more than half of their 2013 recruiting class.

Will Muschamp and his staff have 15 verbal commits, including 11 who appear on the ESPN 150 Watch List. It's not just the number of commitments that is so impressive, it's that Florida has landed top players at positions of need.

In Florida's 2012 recruiting class, the Gators hoped to bring in at least four offensive linemen and three wide receivers. Falling short with only two offensive linemen and two receivers, Florida made those two positions a priority for this recruiting cycle.
