GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Here’s SEC Country’s weekly update on the Florida Gators recruiting Class of 2017.
Where Florida’s 2017 recruiting class is ranked
Florida’s 2017 recruiting class is 31st nationally and 11th in the SEC.
Who are Florida’s top 2017 commitments?
- 4-star (.9382) DE Zachary Carter (Tampa, Fla.)
- 4-star (.9193) CB Marco Wilson (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)
- 4-star (.9095) OT Kadeem Telfort (Miami)
- 4-star (.9082) WR Daquon Green (Tampa, Fla.)
- 4-star (.9054) OL T.J. Moore (Charlotte, N.C.)
Who left or joined Florida’s class this week?
One day after calling himself 85 percent committed to the Gators, 4-star cornerback Elijah Blades (Pasadena, Calif.) backed off his pledge on Wednesday. He still includes UF in his top 5, but it appears Blades is headed to Nebraska after officially visiting the Cornhuskers last weekend.
In addition to Wilson, Florida has 3-star cornerback Shawn Davis (Miami) committed and a few remaining targets at the position.
Who are Florida’s top targets?
The priority prospects heading into the final week are 5-star defensive end LaBryan Ray (Madison, Ala.), 4-star cornerback Brad Stewart (New Orleans), 4-star defensive tackle Tedarrell “T.J.” Slaton, 4-star wide receiver James Robinson (Lakeland, Fla.) and 4-star linebacker Levi Jones (Austin, Texas).
Ray and Stewart are both taking a trip to Florida this weekend. Jones, Robinson and Slaton all visited UF earlier this month.
