Ran Carthon, Darryl Dixon, Matt Farrior, Reid Flemming, Casey Griffith, Dwight Jackson, Matt Jackson, Kelvin Kight, Johnny Lamarr, Darrell Lee, Bobby McCray, Carlos Perez, Keiwan Ratliff, Guss Scott, Shannon Snell, Max Starks and Ben Troupe.

UF could also lose Ingle Martin and Gavin Dickey if they decide to transfer. I don't know the status of Travis Harris, who could also add/subtract a scholarship. The Gators only just 17 seniors. This class should be between 17-21 scholarships.

UF Commitments

RB Markus Manson, DE Jeremy Mincey, DT Johnny Dingle.

Those who the Gators lead or could be strong leans:

Cornelius Ingram, Xavier Carter, Lance Leggett, Octavius Darby, John Dunlap, Drew Miller, Jim Tartt, Jason Watkins, Joe Joseph, Antonio Dixon, Mike Mangold, Willie Young, Lawrence Timmons, Kyle Jackson, Dwayne Grace, McIntosh Nicholas, Dajuan Morgan, Johnathan Warren.

Miami Loses

Larry Anderson, Kevin Beard, Jason Geathers, Talib Humphrey, Carlos Jospeh, Alfonso Marshall, Darrell McClover, Joe McGrath, Jarret Payton, Mo Sikes, Jim Sikora, John Vilma, Jerrell Weaver, Vernon Carey, D.J. Williams.

The Hurricanes have a very small senior class. With only 15 seniors they will not have a full 25 scholarships to give this year. They have already used up close to half of their scholarships so far with 10 commitments.

Potential Loses to the NFL Draft

Sean Taylor, Kellen Winslow, Vince Wilfork, and Antrel Rolle.

FSU Loses

Greg Jones, Joey Kalikini, Darnell Dockett, Jeff Womble, Kevin Emanuel, Brian Sawyer, Allen Augustine, Kendyll Pope, Mike Boulware, Stanford Samuels, Rufus Brown, Jessie Stein.

The Seminoles have 5-6 scholarships open because of last year's small class. There is also the possibility that as many as 2-3 underclassmen go to the NFL -- Cro Thorpe, Travis Johnson and Bryant McFadden are three possibilities. Andrew Henry-Kennon and Nate Hardage are two players who may leave. There are a few other options I won't go into right now.


Drew Weatheford, Lamar Lewis, Jamal Edwards, Courtney Abbott, Durrell Robertson, Carl Grimes (soft).

Others who have FSU high on their list and considering of the Seminoles

. Xavier Lee, Tyler Benoit, Jay Lucas, Lance Leggett, Mike McIntosh, DJ Hall, Greg Carr, Del Roberts, Calvin Dairty, Geoff Beirnard, Jackie Claude, Brett Gallimore, Aarron Jones, Demario Pressley, Nader Abdullah, Emanuel Dunbar, Earnest Mitchell, Willie Williams, Robert Ayers, Jae Thaxton, Joe Manning, John Warren, Kenny Ingram, Marcus Walker, Trevor Ford, Tony Carter, Rodney Gallon, Demiko Goodman, Brandon Miller and Javier Estopinan.

I was told by a very good source FSU will sign close to 22 players. With Attrition and transfers and early departures the number could be higher or lower.
