Urban Meyer and Florida Staff Rolling in Recruits

Clayton CoffmanAnalyst IJune 30, 2008

Not only is Urban Meyer one of the top five coaches in America, he is also one of the top recruiters.

At this time last year, the Gators' staff had received fewer than five commitments.  I was curious as to why there weren't that many commitments, but it didn't matter.

Meyer and his staff finished with a top-three class by wrapping up some top prospects, like Omar Hunter, and stockpiling even more talent in Gainesville.

As it stands now, with more high school prospects wanting to commit early, Meyer and his staff have received seven commitments for next February's signing day.

With an exceptional team waiting to hit the field in August, Meyer and company can expect even more top talent to come in and compete for championships.
