GAINESVILLE -- The Florida Gators received commitments from three of the best high school prospects in the nation on Saturday during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas. Big day for the Orange and Blue.
Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd of Philadelphia, safety Matt Elam of West Palm Beach Dwyer and defensive end Ronald Powell of Moreno Valley, Calif., each committed to Florida on national television. The Gators now have 24 commitments for the 2010 recruiting cycle. National Signing Day is Feb. 3. Several of the recruits have already started classes at UF and as many as 11 are expected to be enrolled by Monday.
Floyd (6-4, 310 pounds) is the No.1-ranked defensive tackle in the nation, according to Rivals.com. Powell is the No.1-ranked weak-side defensive end. Elam is the No.2-ranked safety in the nation and the overall top recruit in Florida. All three players committed to Florida despite the unclear status of Florida coach Urban Meyer, who announced an indefinite leave of absence a few days before the Sugar Bowl but hasn't showed any signs of slowing down.
In the past three days, Meyer has hired three assistant coaches, promoted another and landed commitments from some of the best high school prospects in the nation. Pretty efficient run.
So, which UF commitment excites you the most, and are the people who posted on this blog "good riddance" last week to Matt Elam ready to issue an apology?
