Aidan Keanaaina 2020 4 star DT from Denver, CO
Aidan Keanaaina is wanting to choose a school before his senior year. Some of the colleges Keanaaina is interested in are Wisconsin, Virginia, Notre Dame and Florida. Keanaaina believes he could fit in at Florida well and doesn’t think distance would be an issue.
Issiah Walker Jr. 2020 4 star OT from Miami, FL

During his visit Saturday, Walker thought the O-Line did a nice job blocking against Idaho. Walker also likes the Gators coaching staff and how they all try to make him feel at home. He’s wanting to try and come back up to visit the University of Florida soon. This was the only Gator game he went to this year, but last year he went to three games. Walker thinks the new staff is doing a much better job.
Anthony Richardson 2020 3 star DUAL QB From Gainesville, FL
Hometown boy Anthony Richardson plays for the Eastside Rams, who just finished there season 7-4. He committed to the Gators back on July 28th. Richardson thinks Mullen and his staff have done a great job in their first year at Florida. What makes him think he could fit the Gator offense well is watching Emory Jones play at QB.
Some of the other schools that are still recruiting Richardson are Penn St., Clemson, and Louisville.
