Four Florida Gator football recruits have been named to Parade Magazine's annual High School All-American Team.

They are five-star safety Matt Elam (DB), five-star defensive tackle Sharriff Floyd, five-star defensive end Ronald Powell, and four-star corner back Joshua Shaw.

Interestingly, the magazine also lists Owamagbe Odighizuwa as committed to Florida.

Unless they know something that most other observers have not picked up on, he's off the Gator's radar.

There are still many top ranked players not yet committed. Probably the biggest name yet to commit is 310-pound offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson of St. Paul, Minnesota.

Henderson is trying to decide between Ohio State, Notre Dame, USC, and Florida and his decision is anxiously being awaited by fans and officials of those schools.
