It was not the first time Will Muschamp had spoken the words, but he repeated himself in Hoover, Alabama, at SEC media days. "It's a minor miracle we won seven games" said the coach, according to Patrick Brown of the Chattanooga Times Free Press. In his first season as head coach, Muschamp's Gators were riddled with injuries and didn't have the depth to make up for it.
The only way to rebuild a program is to dominate recruiting. Muschamp and the Gators have gotten off to a hot start in recruiting, and despite the recent decommitment of LB Dillan Lawson, have begun building one of the best classes in the country.
With so many holes to fill, the Gators class of 2013 will have a unique opportunity to step in right away and compete for playing time. The Gators have the space on their current roster for a class of approximately 22-23 players. So while 17 commits is a good start, Muschamp and the Gators are far from being done and the class of '13 can only get better.
Let's take a look at the current players who have decided to take their talents to Gainesville and power rank them according to what kind of impact they could make and how early they could make it.
