I think 2018 will be a banner year recruiting for us...as was this year...but I think we will get some 5 *s to go with our next class. This will be a year when we take at least four OL. It will be easy selling them on playing time.

WRs ditto and again...an easier sell somewhat. DL will also be a need every year and restocking will be necessary, DB & LB wont be as much of a necessity an just need the best we can sign...it wont be an easy sale with the crop we just signed.

RB will need one or two at most...I think the class may not be large in numbers...but we might take five OL and four DL in the 2018 class. Might take three WRs and I hope at least two stud TEs. So maybe 21-22 signees and we cant forget that Fruhmorgan the Tampa Plant Clemson OL may transfer to us and he started I think about six games for Dabo as a frosh...hopefully that works out. He will have to sit out a year.

Is it September yet?

UF hired Corey Bell to coach DBs. Should help in SFL recruiting.

BIWISI

Like the hires of Seider and Bell. So Fl focused recruiting.

He'll be a 4* by next year. He has a great football IQ, too. I like how he sort of just glides into the lanes to tackle.

Seider has already contacted FSU commit RB James Cook (Brother of Dalvin Cook).

Keep an eye on CB Jordan Miner out of Tampa. He has potential to pop early.

I second that. But I don't care, I know all these kids are knuckleheads and subject to go to a school because they have the best fried chicken.

Florida’s recruiting needs, possible class size for 2018

Zach Abolverdi ZACH ABOLVERDI
SEC Country Staff


As Jim McElwain tries to rebuild Florida football into a championship program, one of his mottos is “recruit daily or die.” Join us here on SEC Country for a daily recap of the latest UF recruiting news, tales from the trail and perspective on what it all means for the Gators.

Looking ahead

Florida coach Jim McElwain and football staff members were on vacation for a few days, but progress is being on the Gators recruiting class of 2018.

The Gators landed a commitment on Friday from Miami cornerback Divaad Wilson, who received an offer just a day before from defensive coordinator Randy Shannon.


UF has 82 recruited players on scholarship and 11 seniors for 2017, though wide receiver Dre Massey and guard Antonio Riles could return for one more year with medical redshirts.

Assuming both do, the Gators will have 12 available scholarships for the 2018 class before attrition. Antonio Callaway, Martez Ivey, CeCe Jefferson and Jordan Scarlett are all expected to leave early, bringing the numbers to 16.

RELATED: Where McElwain should focus Gators’ 2018 recruiting

Given the amount of Will Muschamp signees who haven’t played and the influx of McElwain players, Florida will likely have about five transfers between now and the next signing day. That would allow UF to sign 21 recruits for 2018, give or take.

Nine players on the roster this time last year are no longer with team via transfer or injury.

Here are Florida’s three biggest needs for the Class of 2018.


1) Safety

Starting safeties Marcell Harris and Nick Washington are redshirt seniors this year. The Gators will return Quincy Lenton, Jeawon Taylor and Donovan Stiner in 2018, leaving them with little depth and experience at the position. UF has not signed an elite safety prospect since 2013. That needs to end in this recruiting cycle.

2) Wide receiver

Florida will likely lose Callaway along with senior slot receiver Brandon Powell. The following season, Massey and Tyrie Cleveland could be gone. UF must sign a few 2018 wideouts to keep the numbers at 10 or higher. Fortunately for the Gators, they have several targets at the position as well as a commitment from 3-star WR Jalynn Williams (St. Petersburg, Fla.).

3) Offensive line

The Gators should return everyone but Ivey for 2018, but they could lose as many as six offensive linemen after that season. Florida needs to sign at least four line prospects in the 2018 upcoming class to combat those departures. Barring transfers, four or five signees would give the unit a dozen or more returning linemen for 2019, plus the incoming recruits.

Running back and defensive end are the other big needs for Florida in the Class of 2018. Here’s how the class breakdown could look.

QB: 1
RB: 2
WR: 4
TE: 1
OL: 4
DT: 1
DE: 2
LB: 1
DB: 5

Florida offers another Miami recruit

The Gators are once again making Miami a priority on the recruiting trail. Two days after landing Wilson’s commitment, UF extended an offer Sunday to Nigel Bethel.



A 2018 athlete from Miami, Bethel is currently unrated but has early offers from Central Florida and Florida Atlanta. The 5-foot-11, 165-pound prospect could play cornerback or receiver.

Wilson seems confident in Florida’s chances with Bethel.

Callaway shouldn't leave after this season unless he has a special year. He regressed this passed season.

Yeah I don't see AC81 going unless he has a huge year.

I don't think AC regressed, just think our QB play was terrible. No better than last year.

He also drew double coverage with a safety on top to try and keep him from beating teams....Cleveland made them pay at times with single coverage. If we can get some legit threats besides those two it will open up more ops.
