----------

The offensive line class got a huge boost from the commitment of James Wilson, who had previously been committed to USC before changing his decision to Florida.  The Pouncey Twins were both recruited heavily, but chose Florida very early in the recruiting process.  They both blocked for Gators RB commit Chris Rainey at Lakeland Senior HS.
