Florida Gators 2021 commits give their thoughts on the 2021 class

The Florida Gators have put together an impressive Class of 2021 so far as they have 23 commits heading into the start of fall camp.

Florida’s class currently sits outside of the top 10 nationally but the coaching staff has done a good job of building a class that fills a lot of holes they needed in the class.

The Gators have room to add a few more prospects in the class and they have several top targets remaining on the board including a few prospects committed elsewhere.

GatorCountry talked to several of the Gators commits in the class to get their thoughts on the class as well as find out who their top targets remaining in the class are.
