Projecting Florida’s 2019 recruiting class, Pre-NSD edition

National Signing Day is just two days away. With that in mind, here’s how I project the Gators’ Class of 2019 to end up.

First, a quick run through of the key to the list. The number of ⭐️‘s beside a player indicates the player’s average ranking from 247, ESPN, Rivals and Scout. A player listed in bold has already signed a letter of intent to Florida. One * beside a player’s name means he is currently committed to Florida verbally, but has not signed, and two **s beside a player’s name means a new addition to the class that is currently not committed to Florida, but that I project will sign a LOI to Florida on Wednesday.

Onto the projected class:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️OG Deyavie Hammond

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️LB Diwun Black*

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️LB Tyron Hopper

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️CB Kaiir Elam**

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️LB Mohamoud Diabate

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️TE Keon Zipperer

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️CB Chris Steele

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️WR Arjei Henderson*

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️DT Jaelin Humphries

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️RB Nayquan Wright

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️DE Lloyd Summerall

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️CB Jaydon Hill

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️OT Michael Tarquin

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️OT William Harrod

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️OG Wardrick Wilson

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️QB Jalon Jones

⭐️⭐️⭐️DB Chester Kimbrough

⭐️⭐️⭐️OG Riley Simonds

⭐️⭐️⭐️WR JaMarkis Weston

⭐️⭐️⭐️OT Ethan White

⭐️⭐️⭐️OG Kingsley Eguakun

⭐️⭐️⭐️LB Jesiah Pierre

⭐️⭐️⭐️OT Trent Whittemore

⭐️⭐️⭐️WR Dionte Marks

As you can see, my only projected change to the class Florida currently has is the addition of Kaiir Elam. Georgia has made a strong (and borderline unethical) push for him with the addition of Charlton Warren as its new DB coach, but I project that Elam’s family ties to Gainesville (his uncle is former Gator safety Matt Elam) and his wish to play close to home will persuade him to stay in state. Additionally, I don’t think Florida will land Khris Bogle, but there’s definitely something to be said about the fact that he’s remained verbally committed to Alabama for a month and still wanted to take one last visit to Florida anyway.

As it stands, Florida has a very good class coming in. If the Gators can add Elam on top of it as I believe they will, it will cross that border from good to great.
