After landing its worst recruiting class of the Rivals era last February, Florida remains on track for a class ranked in the top 10 on national signing day Wednesday.

ESPN national director of recruiting Tom Luginbill said such rebounds are typical once new coaching staffs complete their first full recruiting calendar.

"This is what you expect to see," Luginbill said.

The Gators are trying to hold onto commitments from LB Vosean Joseph, RB Lamical Perine and S Jeawon Taylor while trying to flip four-star WR Tyrie Cleveland from Houston.
