UF National Signing Day Recap

By on February 6th, 2013

The Florida Gator football team has completed, at least for now, its 2013 recruiting class without much fanfare on National Signing Day on Wednesday.

The Gators have a recruiting class of 28 players, with only two players added on National Signing Day. Florida head coach Will Muschamp and his staff have the No. 2 (ESPN), No. 3 (Rivals) and No. 8 (Scout) recruiting class in the country.

The only two recruits added on Wednesday were a pair of defensive tackles in four-star Jaynard Bostwick from St. Lucie West Centennial High School and three-star junior college transfer Jarran Reed from East Mississippi Community College.

Overall, Muschamp is pleased with the depth of his signing class.

Both of the recruits added today represent Muschamp's desire to have a healthy rotation in the defensive line, which will provide additional depth after the departures of Omar Hunter and Sharif Floyd to potential NFL careers.

Reed will not be alone coming to the University of Florida. He'll be joined by teammate and fellow UF commit Darious Cummings on the Florida front line.

One reason for the subdued nature of National Signing Day was that the Gators got the bulk of the work done prior to Wednesday. Players like cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III, safety Nick Washington, linebacker Daniel McMillian and wide receiver Chris Thompson  have been committed as far back as February 2012, and the Gators have kept their commitments intact.

Coach Muschamp is pleased with the commitment of his recruits.

Muschamp seemed relieved to have the 2013 recruiting season come to an end.

The Gators have eight early enrollees, and now the team is preparing for spring practice in a few weeks.
