Will Florida's spring game be held at night?: It's being reported that Florida is considering playing their spring game on a Friday night this year. Florida would need approval from the SEC in order to make that move. Traditionally the spring game has been played on a Saturday afternoon, usually in early April. What do you think about the game possibly moving to a Friday night? (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun; Thomas Goldkamp, 247 Sports) (Update: This is happening. Florida has confirmed it. The Orange and Blue Debut will be April 8th at 7:00 p.m.)

Some of Florida's three-star commits are better than their ratings: These eight Florida pledges are mentioned as being better than their three-star rankings: CB Aaron Robinson,  LB Vosean Joseph, RB Lamical Perine, DB Jeawon Taylor, DE Jachai Polite, ATH McArthur Burnett, DB Quincy Lenton, and CB C.J. McWilliams. A few Gator commits that were three-stars prospects when they were offered have since been upgraded to four-stars.(Zach Abolverdi, SEC Country)

Can the Gators add another wide receiver to the 2016 class?: Florida has been pursuing Nate Craig-Myers, Miami commit Sam Bruce, Auburn commit Eli Stove, Houston commit Tyrie Cleveland and Tre Nixon.

Bruce is reportedly trending towards Ohio State and Stove will no longer visit Florida this weekend. Nixon also has narrowed his choices to Auburn, Georgia and Ole Miss, eliminating Florida. The Gators are expected to receive a visit from Cleveland days before signing day. (Anthony Chiang, Palm Beach Post)
