Caleb Brantley will have a shot at early playing time in 2013.
These players have pledged their commitment to the University of Florida and are all expected to sign their letter of intent on national signing day. Verbal commitments are non-binding until a player signs their national letter of intent.
CB Vernon Hargreaves III, 5-star
Hargreaves is the most college-ready player in the class. He will contend for a starting spot right away. Even if he doesn't find a spot in the starting lineup, Gator fans can expect to see plenty of Hargreaves in 2013.
S Marcell Harris, 4-star
Harris is a hard-hitting safety who will have a chance to start as a freshman. Without both Matt Elam and Josh Evans, the Gators have a big hole to fill at safety and Harris believes he can fill it.
WR Ahmad Fulwood, 4-star
At 6'4", Fulwood is already one of the biggest receivers the Gators have on their roster. Fulwood will be given a chance to earn playing time as a freshman and he is talented enough to get on the field early.
DT Caleb Brantley, 4-star
Caleb Brantley is one of the most impressive interior linemen in the recruiting class. Losing Sharrif Floyd is a big loss for the Gators but Brantley should help fill that void in 2013.
S Keanu Neal, 4-star
Neal is a talented safety prospect who is good in coverage and can also play up at the line of scrimmage much like Matt Elam did during his career.
DL Jordan Sherit, 4-star
Sherit suffered an ACL injury late in his senior season. Sherit would benefit from a redshirt season in 2013 to ensure he is fully recovered from the injury.
WR Alvin Bailey, 4-star
Bailey is an interesting prospect. He played quarterback for his high school team out of necessity but will compete for playing time at wide receiver and as a return man on special teams. Due to his experience at quarterback, Bailey could be an option to take over Trey Burton's wildcat duties when Burton graduates.
S Nick Washington, 4-star
Washington is an interesting player for the Gators. Washington will play nickel and safety as a freshman but could see a move to cornerback in the future.
DL Antonio Riles, 3-star
In my opinion, Riles commitment has gone under the radar. While he may not be ready to start right away, Riles is a very fast, physical defensive end who knows how to get to the quarterback.
OL Rod Johnson, 3-star
Johnson is a very physical player who will give the Gators much needed depth along the offensive line.
RB Adam Lane, 3-star
Lane bounced back from an injury that cost him most of his junior season to rush for 1,264 yards and 12 touchdowns as a senior. Lane is built like Ray Rice (5'8" 216) and gives the Gators great depth at running back.
LB Jarrad Davis, 3-star
Davis is a very fast outside linebacker but he will need to add more size before he can crack the starting lineup.
OL Cameron Dillard, 3-star
Dillard fills a huge need for the Gators at center. Florida doesn't really have a solid backup behind starting center, Jon Harrison. Dillard should be able to fill in as No. 2 on the depth chart as a freshman.
WR Chris Thompson, 3-star
Thompson is a hometown kid (he attended Gainesville high school) and he comes in at a huge position of need for the Gators. Thompson is a long shot to play much on offense but he will be used on special teams.
WR Marqui Hawkins, 3-star
Like Thompson, Hawkins fills a need for the Gators but will most likely spend most of his freshman season on special teams.
OL Octavious Jackson, 3-star
Jackson can play at either guard position and adds much needed depth to the offensive line.
OL Trenton Brown, 3-star
Trenton Brown is an absolute mountain of a man. At 6'8" 350 pounds, he will give the Gators depth at both tackle positions.
QB Max Staver, 3-star
Staver is a big pocket passer who will compete with Tyler Murphy and Skyler Morninhweg for the backup job at quarterback.
OL Tyler Moore, 4-star (2011)
Tyler Moore is a JUCO transfer who was formerly enrolled at Nebraska. Moore started five games as a freshman for the Cornhuskers and will compete for a starting spot at both tackle positions.
