Higdon's Weekly Q and A on Florida Recruiting

FOXSportsNEXT recruiting analyst Jason Higdon conducts a weekly chat session and leads off with a bang every Monday night. The following is a list of the questions that Jason answers for the subscribers at FightinGators.com and posts on the boards for all of those subscribers to read. The Gators have 19 commitments in the 2013 class and are looking to add 6-7 more possibly before things are done.

Here are just some of the questions that Jason answered for the Florida fans here at FightinGators.com at the following link.

Higdon's Chat intro recruiting Questions

Can you give us any names of visitors who may be in town next weekend?

Are they trying to add another playmaker at WR? If not, who in your opinion can come in and contribute as a true freshman?

Could Shaq Wiggins commit to UF right now?

Could you express your feelings on each of these players as it relates to them being Gators? Elijah Daniel, Greg Gilmore and Alex Anzalone.

With the way D Jacobs has been playing (great depth). Do you think the coaching staff might go the JUCO route again for another Defensive Lineman?

Does CWM have NFL aspirations?

Who's next?

Alex Collins: serious interest or passing flirtation? Are the coaches actively recruiting another running back and what is the likelihood they get one?

Update on David Dawson... is he in the one that you had in mind in your post last week about a commitment coming at USC or will there be more??!!??

All I said last week was the next one will/should pop at this game. Let's take it one commit at a time my friend :)

What Auburn commits do you see as likely candidates for us to make another run at?

Trey Johnson is the guy who has said he will make two more trips to UF, one official in December and one UOV soon.

Any update on Gilmore, M Adams, Ebenezer or Daniel? What about the JUCO DT possibility?

With the way power offenses wear out defenses in the 4th quarter, it seems like teams would try to have "too many" DL on the roster. How many DT and DE do you think we end up with in this class? It would be nice to get 2 of Adams, Gilmore, Daniel and Walker...over the top to get 3 of those 4.

How did the coaches meeting go with Ramsey this past weekend?

With the latest developments, could we possibly sign Dawson and Denson?

Florida has room for this possibility based on numbers but based on evaluations they will not from what I was told.

Is Anzalone possibly our TE recruit?

With Dawson looking more and more like a commitment (let's assume he is for this question), what does this do to our OL recruiting strategy going forward (i.e. Denson, Brown and others)?

Serious question. Do any of the current commits return punts?

Is Cummings the JuCo DT a hot possibility for this class?

Which juniors do you think will go into the draft? Floyd? Elam? Any others?

Jason, I realize it's pure speculation with no definitive answer and not to denigrate Kelvin Taylor's talent and motivation at all but given that he's been a man among boys how difficult might his transition to SEC football be?

Can you update us on the recruitment of The JuCo O lineman Brown?

Has the staff been in contact with the TE Josh McNeil? IS he going to come for a visit?

You say you know of 3 transfers...any chance we go for: 6th OL(assuming its Dawson then Brown) or does the trend like you have mentioned before become the case when it becomes hard to get that 6th guy at a position...like the WR...5th WR(outside of North/D Rob if/when they don't decide on UF)......like we have warmed up to with the 3rd RB? When might you anticipate some 2014 activity? Do you think Muschamp would like to keep those next cycle guys silent until NSD like Texas and grab double digit commits in the few months after?

Class of 2014 Recruiting Question

When do you expect to start seeing more 2014 commits and who are some of the the most likely ones to commit?

We seem to have some 2014 SCB RBs looking at us very seriously right now, Bo Scarborough (sp?), Tony James, and Stanley Williams to name a few. Who are the priorities and is having Taylor and Lane coming on board (possibly another :-)) going to affect us getting a top notch 2014 RB?

We are still in desperate need of playmakers at WR, who are top WRs and are any of them seriously looking at us (I know we have Bronson and he looks to be a serious playmaker)?

Denzel Ware's comments about us makes it sound like he is definitely going to be on board sooner rather than later? What is you take on him committing and as a player?

Will Grier has been down to UF many times and will be here for the SC game, do you see him committing soon. I sure wish he would, not only because he is a heck of a QB, but I think he would be a great recruiter and leader for the 2014 recruiting class!
