Today was the day fanatics of college football wait for every year—National Signing Day. For the 2011 Florida Gators, it was a compelling event to say the least.
By now everyone knows the story in Gainesville: Urban Meyer resigned, again, and Texas Longhorn coach-in-waiting was offered and accepted the Gators head coaching position. Soon thereafter he hired a coaching staff that included Charlie Weis, the former Notre Dame head coach who helped the New England Patriots win more than one Super Bowl.
All that is great, but what the entire staff had to address immediately was the 2011 recruiting class. Urban Meyer and his staff started and received several verbal commitments before his resignation, but Muschamp had to add to and finalize it.
Well, it all came down today, and taking into account the challenges that they faced, Will Muschamp and his staff did a good job.
Here is a breakdown of the top 10 of 18 commitments that are the 2011 Florida Gators recruiting class.
