GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- It’s time to dip into 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.

secrocks2000: With David Dawson decommitting and UF in a good position with him, what happens with Trenton Brown, Ira Denson and Laremy Tunsil? Are the UF coaches looking to take two more OL prospects to go along with the 3 OL prospects already committed?

A: Though Dawson says Alabama and LSU are also in contention, in my opinion the Gators have the best shot of landing the former Michigan commit. Dawson is scheduled to take an official visit to Florida this weekend for the South Carolina game. If that is the case, I would not expect to see FSU commit Ira Denson in UF's class. As for Tunsil and Brown, I believe Florida will take one of the two with Tunsil being the top choice. If the Gators don't feel like they will land Tunsil, look for the Gators to turn up the heat on Brown.
