    2021. WR Trevonte Rucker. Vanguard HS. Ocala, Florida.

    The Florida Gators continued its hot streak over the last few days as the Gators picked up another 2021 commitment on Monday night.

    2021 receiver Trevonte Rucker (6-0, 155, Ocala, FL. Vanguard) committed to Florida on Monday night over several SEC offers.

    Rucker who has visited Florida several times this fall with his teammates and likes what Dan Mullen does on offense.

    Candys Take: Based on what I've been told, Rucker is a dynamo and should be a top 100 kid in 2021. The positives are it builds the base of the 21 class and can only help with team mate Leonard Manuel who is a top 2020 kid. The downside is 21is a long ways out. I had also heard it was a 2020 kid so I honestly was thinking it was another prospect.

    Look at it this way,
    Team mates on Vangard: 2020 5* WR Leonard Manuel, 2020 4* OT Miller Merriweather-Lewis and 2021 4* DE Bryce Langston. That's a bunch of stars and Rucker has already been recruiting them to UF. Take back the State.

    The other part of this that most may not know is Vanguard High just got upset in the Regional Finals at home by Seffner Armwood. Usually losing to Seffner is never an upset but Vanguard was undefeated and had the #1 ranking. Thus many of their kids are ready to make decisions like Rucker. Hopefully many more will follow in the years ahead.

    Also, for the star gazers and rankings people, in the very early 2021 rankings listed by 24/7, Rucker is a 4 star and #60 overall player in the country.

    Yes, this young man must be very vast and agile. I've heard a rumor that something like 3 Vanguard players are likely to choose the Gators, and perhaps soon. Hopefully Manuel and another that you mentioned candy.

    FYI Rucker played alot of QB for Vanguard this year so his receiving stats might be low. I'm not sure if their normal starting QB got hurt but most anybody could throw it to Leonard Manuel and look good doing it. Rucker is more athlete than receiver. Much of his highlights show him blocking on run sweeps,

    And he's ranked #10 as a WR. UF now has the #2 class behind Miami though it's kind of ridiculous that they rank the classes this early.

    3 decommits for 2021 within a few days? The damage has been done.

    Is this all seriously a reaction to the isolated Steele situation? Seems like a major overreaction.
