    Wouldn't try to predict the entire class but I already have some key prospects penciled in for next year.

    I would love to see Bowman commit to the Gators early in the process to give this class even more of a boost.

    Beck might be the bellcow we need, kid might be a 5 star soon, lots of upside with him..

    I think Beck should be the guy for this class. Wait for it.

    I've put together a narrow list of some names to watch by position based on kids in Florida. They may not have any interest in Florida but it doesn't mean they won't. I tried to focus on the top rated players in Florida that are not committed elsewhere. The rankings are from the 247 Top 100 as of 2/7/2019. Hopefully Candy can refer from this list to get things started.
    QB - Carson Beck (an easy one) - Jacksonville
    QB - Anthony Richardson - Gainesville
    ATH - Keyvone Lee (committed) - Clearwater - #97 ranking
    RB - Demarcus Bowman - Lakeland - #33 ranking
    RB - EJ Smith - Texas legacy #86 - if he commits maybe we can get Larry V to do a live radio feed and just as he picks the connection can be cut off
    WR - Leonard Manuel (committed) - Ocala Vanguard - #36 ranking
    WR - J Fraziars (committed) - Dunnellon
    WR - Marcus Rosemy - Ft Lauderdale STA - #29 ranking
    ATH - Marc Britt - Miami - #83 ranking
    TE - unknown, not a big need unless we have transfers
    OL - Jalen Rivers - Orange Park - #79 ranking
    OL - Joshua Braun - Suwannee Live Oak
    OL - Miller Mayweather-Lewis - Ocala Vanguard
    OL - Jovens Janvier - Hialeah
    DT - Johnnie Brown (committed) - Tampa Middleton - #98 ranking
    DT - Gervon Dexter (committed) - Lake Wales
    DE - Josh Griffis (committed) - IMG from Green Cove Springs
    DE - Chantz Williams - Orange Park
    DE - Jalen Carter - Apopka
    LB - Jaylen Harrell - Tampa Berkeley Prep
    LB - Devon Betty - Ft Lauderdale STA - don't know why but I love this kids name, hope he is interested
    LB - Tyler Berrong - Port Orange
    S - Rashad Torrence (committed) - Marietta GA
    S - Avantae Williams (Oregon???) - Deland - #43 ranking
    CB - Fred Davis - Jacksonville - #30 ranking
    That's 25 if we get about 23-24 then we call it a day. Amazing its NSD and we are almost a third the way to the 2020 needs

    Good stuff bro, I'm hoping that by Spring we'll have Beck and Bowman committed so we can build this juggernaut class.

    Good list Matherly
    Would add Dumervil on OL, Fenley Graham at db, J Robinson at db, Malik Heath at wr, sampah at Lb
    Lots of out if state kids but hard to gauge interest level just yet

    Bunch of kids from Texas visited Gainesville two weeks ago. Most were WRs and DBs. We'll get one or two Texans, a handful from Alabama and Georgia and hopefully one more from California. Gotta keep working that 405 corridor.

    Agree, the ar move seems suspicious though. Strange time to bail..

    The timing makes sense if the move was about Beck.
