It may sound odd, but there probably is a good bit of validity to the thinking that some Gator fans worry more about what recruits Florida will sign to national letters of intent in February than how UF does on the field against Florida State in November.
That might be exaggerated.
But then again, it might not.
Much like the beginning of March Madness, National Signing Day has proven to be one where employees suddenly come down with a mysterious flu bug. Or, if they go to their job, they often find themselves tracking recruiting websites from 8 a.m. until sundown (when work permits, of course).
Entering the final stretch of recruiting, Will Muschamp looks like he will deliver a top-5 class to Gainesville. With that will come expectations.
There are no worries from Muschamp's end on that, as he has said since his introductory press conference in December of 2010 that his goals for the program are very high.
This group should help him achieve what he desires. Will it end up on a list like these signing classes?
We'll know in a few years.
The first few slides here will center on uncommitted prospects who could end up at UF. From there, we will take a look at the commitments and those who have enrolled early.
