GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- It’s time to dip in to the GatorNation recruiting mailbag and answer your questions. 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 post your questions on our Insider fan forum, The Chompions Club.

A: This can be a tricky question because a lot will depend on attrition. Also, if Florida is able to land a transfer such as former Nebraska offensive lineman Tyler Moore, that would affect the final number Florida would take in its 2013 recruiting class. Obviously, with the decommitments of Rod Johnson (Delray Beach, Fla./American Heritage) and Josh Outlaw (Lithonia, Ga./Martin Luther King), the Gators would like to sign at least one more offensive lineman. Florida would also like a linebacker, Marcell Harris at safety and a defensive tackle. If there ends up being room, the Gators would also like to add a tight end. I specify Harris at safety because if the Gators miss on him, I don't believe they will take another safety.
