Assessing Florida's 2015 recruiting class
Editor’s Note: All rankings, both individual and team, are courtesy of 247Sports.
The Florida Gators’ recruiting class is certainly not as attention-grabbing as one would expect for a premier program like the Gators.
Thanks to a myriad of issues, including on-field struggles and a head coaching change, the Gators’ class is relatively small at only seven players. To compare, Georgia currently has 25 commits in its 2015 recruiting class.
Although its small class, it still contains a few recruits who could make an immediate impact, particularly on offense. Derrick Dillon will be the recruit to watch next fall as a possible instant impact player. He plays both sides of the ball, but is projected to be a wide receiver in Gainesville next season.
Dillon is an incredible athlete and his speed helps separate him from many other recruits. If he does see the field in 2015, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him in the slot, especially with his breakaway speed.
New head coach Jim McElwain has his work cut out for him, but with his proven record of pulling in top guys at Alabama, he should have success over these next few months pulling in some of the top recruits that are still very interested in the Gators.
