A look at five of the Florida Gators biggest remaining targets in 2024

The Florida Gators are sitting with 21 commits in the Class of 2024 heading into the season and while spots are limited in the class, the Gators still have several key targets remaining on the board.

This class is pretty well-rounded as far as fitting needs at positions but there are a few positions that the Gators would like too.

GatorCountry looks at five remaining targets for the Gators that could fill the remaining spots in the Class of 2024.


Offensive side of the ball

Ohio State receiver commit Jeremiah Smith- Smith is a longtime Ohio State commit but has visited Florida twice over the summer including being on campus for the Gators first fall practice. Flipping Smith won’t be easy as he has a great relationship with several coaches at Ohio State, but Florida, Florida State, and Georgia are continuing to work hard on Smith. Smith has said that he’s going to watch to see how Florida does this season, a good showing on the field and on offense would help the Gators chances a lot.

Offensive lineman Jordan Seaton- The offensive lineman moved to IMG from Washington DC for this football season, and he has visited Gainesville once before. The Gators are hoping to get Seaton on campus for an official visit this fall. Alabama is the only team that has hosted Seaton on an official visit so far but the lineman remains very open in the process.


Defensive side of the ball

Defensive lineman LJ McCray- The Daytona lineman has been on campus in Gainesville several times and has a great relationship with the Gators’ coaching staff. McCray named a top five of Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, and Miami over the summer and Florida State will host McCray on an official visit this fall. Right now, it looks like the Gators’ biggest competition is Florida State and Miami.

Alabama defensive back commit Jameer Grimsley- Grimsley committed to Alabama in the spring, but the Gators have stayed on Grimsley despite the commitment. Corey Raymond is recruiting Grimsley hard, and Florida hopes to get the Tampa native on campus this fall. The Gators will stay on Grimsley until the end.

Defensive back Zay Mincey- Mincey is teammates with McCray at Mainland in Daytona and is a guy that Corey Raymond has been after since he arrived in Gainesville. Mincey has been in Gainesville a lot and has built that relationship with the coaches at Florida, but Florida State and Miami are making things tough on Florida. Alabama is also in the mix here.
