Gators grab nation's top recruiting class
When it comes to Florida's football program, the rich is getting richer.
Just one month removed from their BCS national championship, the Gators have all but clinched top recruiting class in the country, according to two recruiting services.
Florida has commitments from nine of the top-45 players in the nation, according to scout.com and 11 in the top-71.
"They're so far ahead, the only team that would get them are the Colts," said national recruiting analyst Larry Blustein. "They've cleaned up."
Texas, LSU Southern Cal and Tennessee round out Blustein's top-five so far, with Miami closing strong with a top-15 class.
