I would like to congratulate all of the young men who signed their Letters of Intent on National Signing Day, February 3rd. These young men have the opportunity to play college football and to play football at any level is an honor. The most fertile recruiting states in the country is the state of
Florida. Ask any Division 1 college football coach and he will tell you that if you can recruit good in the state of Florida then you will be successful.
“The Big Three” in the state of Florida are the Florida State Seminoles, Florida Gators and the Miami Hurricanes.
Florida State Seminoles maintained their dominance of recruiting out on the trail. The Seminoles finished with the nations #1 recruiting class according to the ESPN rankings. Head Coach Jimbo Fisher knows how to recruit and get what his team needs to in order to play some of the top college football programs in the nation. The Noles’ 2016 class is headlined by 5 star CB Levonta Taylor, QB Malik Henry & OL Baveon Johnson.
Florida Gators missed the top 10 by 2 spots. Head coach Jim McElwain should be pleased with the new additions to his roster. Florida held their own on the recruiting trail in the toughest conference in the country. The Gators were able to hold of poachers attempting make a last minute push at their committments & lock their guys in on signing day. Florida’s 2016 class is headlined by the #2 DE in the nation Antonneous Clayton, WR Tyrie Clevland, & QB Feleipe’ Franks.
According to ESPN, Miami Hurricanes was ranked number 19 this year in class rankings. When head coach Mark Richt took over most of his efforts were spent evaluating the class and keeping key players committed. The Hurricanes were able to add a few players later on to solidify their signee class. Judgment will be reserved for Richt until he gets a full year to recruit at Miami. Explosive WR Same Bruce, QB Jack Allison & ILB Shaquille Qaurterman, headlines the class.
