* Transfer

Hot prospects: The Gators remain in contention for Loganville, Ga., DE Robert Nkemdiche, the consensus No. 1 player in the nation, who has decommitted from Clemson. However, some analysts consider the Gators a long shot. With a desperate need at receiver, the UF staff is making a late run at Levonte Whitfield, an oral commitment for Florida State, and James Clark. The Gators have a top-three national class, the major recruiting services say. So at this point, it's a matter of them closing strong.
