Recruiting updates: Sharpe, Stephens & Cook

GAINESVILLE -- Despite the lack of an offensive coordinator, Florida coach Will Muschamp has done work on the recruiting trail this week.

The Gators landed a pair of highly-touted 2014 offensive prospects they hope can infuse an inept attack immediately. 

On Thursday, four-star offensive tackle David Sharpe (Providence High School) and four-star wide receiver Moral Stephens (Perry Taylor County) verbally committed to UF.

Sharpe, UF’s top tackle target, pledged his commitment in a ceremony, while Stephens, recruited to Florida as a tight end, announced his decision on social media.

Cook, who scored four touchdowns in Miami Central’s third straight 6A state championship in Orlando, told a crowd of reporters he is “shutting down his recruiting process” and will announce his final decision on Jan. 2.

Most analysts believe Cook will choose between Florida, Florida State and Miami.

Prospects cannot sign their national letters of intent until Feb 5. After cleaning house Thursday with six transfers, the Gators now have an additional four scholarships available following Sharpe and Stephens’ commitments.

With 18 commits, Florida sits at No. 9 in Rivals’ 2014 team recruiting rankings.
