Predicted, Complete 2013 Football Recruiting Class



This is a big year for the Gators as Will Muschamp looks to build a rock-solid foundation for his talented defense and pro-style offense. I expect Muschamp and the Gators to take between 23-25 players in this class, many of which will be skill players on the offensive and defensive side of the ball, as Muschamp emphasized both lines of scrimmage in the 2012 class. Lets first examine the commits:

Vernon Hargreaves III CB 5 stars

Kelvin Taylor RB 4 stars

Caleb Brantley DT 4 stars

Daniel McMillan OLB 4 stars

Ahmad Fulwood WR 4 stars

Keanu Neal S 4 stars

Quinton Powell OLB 4 stars

Nick Washington S 4 stars

Adam Lane RB 4 stars

Marqui Hawkins WR 4 stars

Max Staver QB 4 stars

James Hearns ILB 4 stars

Roderick Johnson OT 4 stars

Tre' Bell CB 4 stars

Rodney Adams WR 4 stars

Cameron Dillard OG 4 stars

Josh Outlaw OG 4 stars

Antonio Riles DE 4 stars

Joey Ivie DT 3 stars

Right now Florida has a consensus top 3 class. This class already is loaded and top 10 even if no additional players commit, but that is very unlikely and leads us to the second portion of the article: who I expect to commit to UF between now and National Signing Day. The Gators might take an additional corner, but are pretty much set at DB with the Hargreaves commitment Thursday. Quaterback, runningback and wideout are not an issue, though Florida might take another wideout to load up at skill positions. Expect Florida to pursue defensive lineman, another offensive tackle and possibly a center. Muschamp, being a Saban prodigy knows and understand the importance of a very deep defensive line, something their Tallahassee rivals understand as well. I fully expect Laremy Tunsil to choose Florida over UGA, which will fill the OT need. On the defensive line, look for Ebenezer Ogundeko to choose UF. Ogundeko is a talented, large strong side defensive end from Brooklyn. He is little known due to the fact that he plays northeast ball, against high schools that get little to no attention. Jordan Sherit all but has committed to UF, according to twitterverse, so I expect him to verbally announce soon enough. That is an additional 3 commitments, bringing the total to 22. I expect the next 2-4 to come from skill positions, like wide receiver, corner, safety or ATH. That being said I like the Gator's chances at landing safety Marcell Harris and 4 star ATH Leroy Clark. That puts UF at 24 for the class of 2013 and certainly a consensus top 2 or 3 class. The final class should look a little something like this:

Laremy Tunsil OT 5 stars

Vernon Hargreaves III CB 5 stars

Kelvin Taylor RB 4 stars

Caleb Brantley DT 4 stars

Daniel McMillan OLB 4 stars

Ahmad Fulwood WR 4 stars

Marcell Harris S 4 stars

Keanu Neal S 4 stars

Quinton Powell OLB 4 stars

Nick Washington S 4 stars

Adam Lane RB 4 stars

Jordan Sherit DE 4 stars

Marqui Hawkins WR 4 stars

Max Staver QB 4 stars

James Hearns ILB 4 stars

Leroy Clark ATH 4 stars

Roderick Johnson OT 4 stars

Tre' Bell CB 4 stars

Rodney Adams WR 4 stars

Ebenezer Ogundeko DE 4 stars

Cameron Dillard OG 4 stars

Josh Outlaw OG 4 stars

Antonio Riles DE 4 stars

Joey Ivie DT 3 stars

24 commitments.

Very complete, balanced, talented and skilled class that Gator fans should be proud of.

Please be kind and use good grammar.
