Florida Gators #5 in ESPN's Initial 2012 Football Recruiting Rankings

The Florida Gators have the #5 ranked recruiting class by way of ESPN's initial 2012 list. So far, it appears that Will Muschamp hasn't skipped a beat and has picked up exactly where Urban Meyer left off and will bring in (even though it is a long way away) a top ranked recruiting class.

As discussed already, the Gators have four players on ESPNU's 2012 Top 150 list and are in the running for quite a few more.

So say hello to your #5 ranked class (of course based on verbal commitments) as of right now:

Willie Bailey DB 6-1/165
Mike Davis RB 5-9/192
Jessamen Dunker OL 6-6/315
Matt Jones RB 6-2/200
JaFar Mann DT 6-4/275
Dante Phillips DT 6-6/268
Latroy Pittman WR 6-1/190
Jeremi Powell LB 6-2/200
Colin Thompson TE 6-5/255
Quinteze Williams DT 6-4/295


The list is from Also make sure to note that Thompson, Dunker, Phillips, and Pittman are all ranked within the Top 150.

As usual, for those keeping track:

FSU is #2
Alabama is #3
Miami is #8
LSU is #9
Georgia is #23
Vanderbilt is #24
South Carolina is #25

And yes, I double checked that twice as well. Vanderbilt is #24.
