Over half of Florida's signing class is expected to enroll early beginning today.

Because of Covid-19, there are a couple of differences. Last summer, enrollees checked into a hotel for quarantine for a few days, this spring they are checking into the dorms.

They are staggering the arrivals (like Borders at 9, Elksnis at 10, Del Rio at 12, Kitna at 1, etc...) so that there aren't a lot of family members in close contact. The first thing the new arrivals will be given a Covid-19 test by the University, and then later today by the football team.

After they all check-in throughout the day, they will hold an EE meeting at 3 p.m. today.

I will add a mark next to the name of the player as I verify that they have arrived on campus today.

Desmond Watson told me he isn't arriving today. I asked him when he was reporting, he said sometime next week, but he isn't sure of the day.

He said that they are waiting to see if all of his classes are done. I would assume that means they are waiting to see if he has the necessary courses.

Though they didn't arrive yesterday, I was able to confirm what both Desmond Watson and Demarkcus Bowman told Inside the Gators yesterday, they both will still enroll early.

And though they didn't enroll early as planned, I was told that both Diwun Black and Marcus Burke are on track to be able to enroll for Summer A.

The 3 p.m. meeting was attended by players and family members. It pretty much entailed everything they need to know.

The players received a nice bag of new gear, as well as several bags of food to stock up their new dorm rooms.

I'm starting to think it wasn't meant to be between Black and UF.

Everything that can go wrong had.

He won't be able to get experience this spring or be in the weight room with the other players.

If he has to wait until summer he'll miss those workouts and fall behind all the other players when he is already 2 years older than them.

Summer A begins in May, so yes, he is losing a couple of months, but he will be on campus for almost four months before the start of the season.

Demarkcus Bowman messaged me that he is moving into his apartment as I type this message out.

As a transfer, he is not being required to live in the dorms during the first year as true freshmen are.
