    Gators improve to No. 11 in national recruiting rankings

    Los Angeles 5-star DB Steel highlights Mullen’s latest haul

    By Edgar Thompson Orlando Sentinel
    GAINESVILLE — The future of Dan Mullen’s Florida Gators looks even brighter following the past two days.
    A week after a dominating win in the Peach Bowl, the Gators rose six spots to No. 11 in the 247Sports national recruiting rankings and also received word some key players would return for their senior seasons.

    Tailback Lamical Perine, the team’s leading rusher, wideout Van Jefferson, the team’s leading receiver, and defensive end Jabari Zuniga, who had 6.5 sacks in 2018, announced their return Saturday on Twitter.
    The biggest news of the day, though, was UF signing five-star defensive back Chris Steel of Los Angeles.

    Originally committed to USC, Steele re-opened the recruiting process in October before deciding to come across the country to Gainesville.
    The 6-foot-1, 184-pound Steele recorded 32 total tackles, two blocked field goals and one interception to lead St. John Bosco to the state-title game.
    On Thursday, four-star receiver Arjei Henderson spurned Florida State to commit to Florida during the Under Armour All-American game in Orlando.

    Being lost in our class is that we basically add a 5* DB with Marco returning. If you factor him in it's basically a Top 5 class as it stands now relative to last year's roster.

    At this rate, we'll end up with more Reeses than a bag of peanut butter cups... and that's a good thing.
