The Florida Gators currently sit with 20 commits in the Class of 2021 and are considered to have one of the top classes in the country.
Dan Mullen and the Gators coaching staff have a few spots remaining in the class of 2021 and still several top targets remaining on the board.
The dead period has slowed some of the top targets’ recruitment down but the Gators still sit in a good spot with several guys.
GatorCountry brings you the top six remaining targets for the Gators based off of needs at their respect positions.
These are targets are in alphabetical order.
Receiver Marcus Burke- Burke has been one of the Gators top targets at the position for over a year now. With Daejon Reynolds and Trevonte Rucker as receiver commits in the class, the Gators need just one more receiver and Burke is at the top of that list. Burke named the Gators his leader in February and there were talks of a spring commitment but he wants to take visits first. Georgia is the Gators biggest competition.
Safety Corey Collier-Collier is considered one of the top safeties in the country and is a guy that is a huge need for the Gators in the class, as several safeties will graduate following the 2020 season. Florida, Florida State and Clemson are all top programs in consideration for Collier. Collier wants to wait until signing day to make a decision.
Defensive tackle Savion Collins- The Miami commit has said that he hears from Florida the most out of the schools he’s hearing from and he has also visited Gainesville several times in the past. Collins needs to get his mom on campus in Gainesville and that should happen as soon as the dead period is over. This looks like a Florida/Miami battle.
Cornerback Jason Marshall- Marshall is one of the top prospects in the country and has been in Gainesville a lot the last two years. Clemson, Alabama and Florida have been mentioned the most with Marshall in his recruitment but the Gators seem to be the team with the most momentum so far. Marshall is a guy that could really solidify the defensive back room for Florida.
Offensive lineman Jake Slaughter- Slaughter is committed to Florida State but after receiving an offer from Florida in the spring, the lineman said he had some things to think about. The Gators have been recruiting him hard and he has taken a virtual visit with Florida already. The Gators should be considered a favorite to land the lineman if he flips.
Defensive tackle Leonard Taylor- the defensive tackle is one of five Palmetto targets for the Gators in the class. Taylor has visited Florida more than any other school so far and the Gators sit in good shape with the defensive tackle during the dead period. Miami is Florida’s biggest competition, as Taylor wants to make a signing day decision.
