Florida Football Recruiting: Gators Officially Pull In 23 Commitments On National Signing Day

Florida football has officially announced 23 commitments on National Signing Day, with all 23 having signed their letters of intent and six players being early enrollees. The headline of the Gators 2012 recruiting class is five-star defensive back Brian Poole from Bradenton, FL out of Southeast High School. Poole is rated as the No. 2 cornerback in the country. The Gators were also able to land a commitment from the No. 3 ranked offensive tackle, five-star D.J. Humpries from Charlotte, NC out of Mallard Creek High School.

Florida was also able to flip a top ranked defensive end from his commitment to Florida State, as four-star defensive end Dante Fowler, Jr. from Lakewood High School in the Tampa Bay area, as he decided to flip his commitment to the Florida Gators. Fowler cited the state of the Seminoles depth chart at defensive end for the reason for his switch.

The Florida Gators did miss out on a couple of players they thought they were going to pick up, as four-star offensive tackle Avery Young decided to head to Auburn over Florida. The Gators also missed out on five-star athlete/wide receiver Nelson Agholor who chose to head to USC over Florida and Florida State. Agholor was the third rated wide receiver in the 2012 recruiting class.

The Gators class is ranked No. 2 in the SEC and No. 5 overall as of now, according to Scout.com.
