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 19th nationally and 8th in the SEC.
Who are Florida’s top 2017 commitments?
- 4-star (.9386) DE Zachary Carter (Tampa, Fla.)
- 4-star (.9308) WR Daquon Green (Tampa, Fla.)
- 4-star (.9303) CB Elijah Blades (Pasadena, Calif.)
- 4-star (.9194) CB Marco Wilson (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)

Who left or joined Florida’s class this week?
Florida planned to have six mid-year enrollees this month, but that’s no longer the case. Defensive back Shawn Davis didn’t make it in because he was short on credits. He will now enroll in May after he makes up a class online.
Another expected early enrollee, linebacker James Houston, awaits academic clearance. Houston is in Gainesville for UF compliance.
The Gators landed a commitment Friday from 3-star wide receiver Jalynn Williams, who becomes the first member of their 2018 class.
