According to ESPN, the Florida Gators are on their way up after an impressive haul on early signing day. Florida joined the ranks of Alabama, Michigan and Georgia as the schools who had the strongest finish with signees.
On early signing day, Florida had the largest improvement in class ranking of the day. This was in large part due to a trio of teammates from Lakeland High School sending their letters of intent to Florida. They include TE Keon Zipperer, DE Lloyd Summerall and OG Deyavie Hammond who are each rated as four-star prospects.
Florida moved up four spots, from the number 20 overall class nationally to number 16. While that still is not where Florida fans would like their team to be, expect the Gators to ride the momentum and close inside of the top 10 nationally when all is said and done with the 2019 class.
The Gators now have 16 blue-chip commitments for 2019, which is tied for fourth overall in the country. They are behind number one overall Alabama, who has a staggering 25 four-star or better commitments. Georgia, Michigan and Oklahoma are each tied for the number two spot, as they have 18 blue-chip commits. Texas comes in at third, with 17.
