With the 2012 Under Armour and Army All- American games behind us, the recruiting picture is coming into clearer focus. We’ve got a firm grasp on who the top recruits in the country are, so we’ve updated our GatorCountry.com composite rankings.

Wednesday we unveiled Part III of our 385-man ranking and Thursday we unveiled Part II. Today we show you the recruits who ranked in the nation’s Top 100 players in the country’s four biggest recruiting services in Part I of our composite ranking.

Of the 385 prospects in our composite rankings, the Florida Gators had 14 verbal commitments.

Today, offensive lineman D.J. Humphries checks in at No. 3, defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard checks in at No. 13, cornerback Brian Poole Jr. checks in at No. 58, offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker checks in at No. 59 and tight end Kent Taylor checks in at No. 81.

On Thursday, safety Marcus Maye checked in at No. 113, tight end Colin Thompson checked in at No. 140, running back Matt Jones checked in at No. 159, defensive lineman Dante Phillips checked in at No. 166 and linebacker Jeremi Powell checked in at No. 217.

On Wednesday, safety Rhaheim Ledbetter checked in at No. 278, linebacker Antonio Morrison checked in at No. 320, defensive lineman Quinteze Williams checked in at No. 328 and wide receiver Latroy Pittman checked in at No. 335.

With 14 commitments in the GatorCountry.com composite rankings, the Gators ranked tied for fourth in the nation with Michigan, behind only Texas with 18 and Alabama with 15.
