It’s that time of the year again where the Friday Night Lights are bright and prospects all across the country are battling to finish off the year with a state championship ring.

Like the past years Gator Country is going to do a preview every Thursday for all of the Florida Gators commits and on Monday we will do a full recap including stats and notes from the past weeks games.

This year we are going to also highlight the key players to watch in the game that aren’t Florida Gators commits but rather targets or just big names in the game.

    Our 2016 recruiting class is impressive but I find one glaring omission. Could we possibly include a KICKER along with about 5 more OLs
