----------

With all the losses in the secondary from 2006, the Gators needed a strong recruiting class in this area.  Well, it looks as if the mission was accomplished, picking up big time commits from Major Wright and Jerimy Finch.  They also picked up players in Black, Jenkins and Wilks who can play anywhere in the secondary if called upon.
