With recruiting season starting to head down the home stretch, the Gators are involved with some of the top prospects, not only in the state of Florida but in the country. Here is a look at some of the top prospects remaining on UF's recruiting board.
The Gators have commitments from two solid players in Brian Poole Jr. (5-foot-11/190 pounds, Bradenton, Fla./Southeast) and Willie Bailey (6-2/175, Hallandale, Fla./Hallandale). Florida doesn't need to sign another corner, but Miramar (Fla.) corner Tracy Howard Jr. is just too good a talent to pass on.
In addition to Florida, Howard is very high on in-state rival Florida State. He visited FSU last weekend and came away impressed with the Noles. Howard and his family will be in the south end zone of The Swamp for the Florida-Florida State game on Nov. 26.
Florida's class features top prospects in the secondary, but the Gators could use to lock up a couple of pass rushers.
