Q.) Can you give us a list of who we are looking at for the DT and DE spots? And who are the most likely?
Is Lambert still in the picture? And what about Reed?

A.) Dewayne Hendrix, Jarran Reed, Lorenzo Carter, Lorenzo Featherston, Cory Thomas and Thomas Holley are the guys for the defensive line right now.

I think Florida has a good shot at Reed, Featherston and a decent shot at Carter, Thomas and Holley.

Lambert is still in the picture yes but Florida hasn’t talked to him much lately.

Q.) Please give an overall breakdown for numbers at each position.

A.) 1-QB, 1-2 RB, 2-3 WR, 2 TE, 4-5 OL, 4 DL, 1 LB, 4 CB, 1 Safety.

Q.) Who are the top prospects from out of state that we have best shot at in 2014, 2015 and 2016 at this point?

A.) 2014-Lorenzo Carter, Cory Thomas and Deandre Goolsby. The 2015 and 2016 classes are still being sorted out so it’s tough to say on those classes right now.

Q.) Is the rejuvenation of the offense helping change the mind of offensive recruits? Who and how much?

A.) I have noticed that more prospects are talking about how Florida is able to move the ball so the answer  is yes it will eventually but they have to continue to improve on offense each week.
