As we enter the post summer period portion of the recruiting calendar, Florida fans are a bit uneasy as the Gators currently sit outside the top 20 - at No. 40 (247), No. 25 (ESPN) and No. 44 (Rivals) - in team recruiting rankings.

While Florida's class may not be as highly ranked as many in the Gator Nation would like for it to be, and there's no hiding from the fact that UF has lost out - at this time - on some top targets, remember, this is August and recruiting is a marathon, not a sprint.

I just realized, this was written before Black committed today. So the team recruiting rankings are much better than listed here and instead of a 9 for Black, perhaps I should have made him a 10 (he was on my mock class yesterday).

My silly self still has hopes for Sanders... I really do believe if Sanders sees the offensive product on the field that will sway him... can you just imagine Jacob Copeland, Trey Sanders, and Emory Jones on the same field. All the other weapons around them and Dan Mullen dialing up all these plays... this will be sick... To me Trey Sanders is the key the most perfect weapon for how Dan Mullen runs his offense.... To me he would be a mix of Percy Harvin/Jeff Demps... Use him all over the field... man I hope they can convince that kid to come to florida....

Although Tim Tebow was great but the ultimate Weapon was Percy Harvin on those championship teams. He jump started their success the second year Meyer was here... I believe this is the type of play Trey Sanders is... I could be very wrong but with Dan Mullens imagination on offense I think he could be

Out of all the players you rated 4 or worse I really want us to get Stevenson. If we can get him to realize that Wilson and Henderson are leaving after 2019 and he can be our plug and play.

I totally agree with you... had Randy Russell not had his medical situation Stevenson wouldn't be as important but right now he's the one that we really need. I was as excited for Russell as I was for Copeland. Elam and Stevenson are extremely important
