Florida had itself a day on the recruiting trail, and that's putting it lightly.

Will Muschamp and his staff rocked the recruiting world and landed three commitments on Monday: receiver Ermon Lane, safety Quincy Wilson and cornerback Chris Lammons.

Mondays, per history, are generally the most hated day of the week. That won't be the case for Gators fans from now on though, especially if they keep the events of this past one in mind.

While Florida did bring in three commitments, one of those recruits does stand out among the rest. Lane, a 5-star receiver from Homestead, Fla., is the No. 1 wideout in the nation, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. According to Derek Tyson of ESPN.com, Lane committed to Florida on South Florida radio:

"I went up to Florida for their spring practice. I just felt at home when I stepped on campus," Lane said on the South Florida High School Sports radio show. "I was just looking at their wide receivers, and I just feel like I could go in and compete and play as a true freshman."

Lane chose the Gators over the likes Alabama, Miami and Florida State, according to GatorBait.net, so he'll go down as a major win for Florida.

Not only is he a huge talent, but Muschamp was able to keep him away from Alabama, and two in-state rivals.

Lane is 6'3'', 193 pounds and runs a 4.52 40, according to 247Sports. He's lanky, athletic and should be a deep threat. He has good hands and will be able to go up and high-point the ball. He has superstar potential, and he's undoubtedly Florida's marquee 2014 commitment at this point.

With all that said, we still have two other recruits to talk about.

Lane's good friend, 4-star safety Wilson, has agreed to commit to the Gators. The two were a tag team of sorts, so when Lane committed, Wilson came right along with him (Reported by Tyson).

Wilson is the No. 17 safety in the nation, per the 247Sports composite. He's a talented recruit with a good blend of size and speed. He has quick feet and should be able to stay on top of routes as a safety, but he's big enough at 6'1'', 196 pounds to come into the box and play some physical football.

Even without the tag team with lane, Wilson alone would have been a big commitment for Florida to land.

Last but not least, there's Lammons, who committed to Florida over some major SEC competition, according to Safid Deen of the Miami Herald:

Lammons, a cornerback for Plantation who also played on South Florida Express team, announced his pledge to UF during ESPNU’s College Football Blitz earlier in the day. He narrowed his list on Saturday to South Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama, but picked the Gators over reported offers from more than 15 schools total, including the University of Miami.

“[Florida has] great coaching, great facility and that’s just somewhere I feel comfortable,” Lammons said

Florida now boasts 15 commitments and has the No. 10 ranked class, according to the 247Sports class rankings.

10 of those commitments are from the state of Florida.
