If you look at the storied football history of the University of Florida, you will find a slew of famous names and star players. Danny Wuerffel, Fred Taylor and Steve Spurrier are just a couple of Gators who immediately come to mind.
They are certainly some of the most famous. But are they also some of the most hyped Gator athletes of all time?
That is the question that we are about to answer. In the age of modern media, it is nearly impossible for fans of any college team to escape the insane amount of coverage devoted to recruiting season. In most cases, they search for it themselves because they want to know who will be their next star receiver or hard-hitting linebacker.
After all, a team cannot win a championship without the proper talent level. Gator fans know this, as three of the most talented rosters in their school's history have led to three national titles.
Unfortunately, there are also many cases when star high school players fail to live up to the hype. The Gators have not been immune to this phenomenon.
With that being said, let's jump in and take a look at some of the most ballyhooed recruits in the history of Gator football.
