A look at where Florida stands with its offensive targets left on its board.

National signing day is less than a month away. The Gators will look to close out the 2017 class strong and there are a few targets Florida will focus on. Where are things trending with some of the biggest targets on offense?

Florida has a few targets left on the board. Here is a breakdown of where things stand with the prospects on offense: 



Schools Involved: Miami, Florida, Michigan and Auburn

UpdateKai-Leon Herbert has been committed to the Wolverines for a few months now, however, he is expected to take visits to Auburn (Jan. 13), Miami, (Jan. 20) and Florida (Jan. 27). At this time it is hard for us to see him not flipping to the Gators after his visit at the end of the month. 



Schools Involved: Alabama, Florida State, Auburn, Penn State and Florida 

Update: Henry Ruggs only has two official visits set to Florida State on Jan. 13 and Alabama on Jan. 20. This was thought to be a battle between UF and Bama for quite a while, however, Ruggs has yet to schedule a visit or visit Gainesville in a very long time. Ruggs is in the middle of basketball season is unsure if he will have time to take anymore visits. 



Schools Involved: Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Florida and Alabama 

Update: James Robinson's recruitment has certainly had its ups and downs. He will visit the Gators this upcoming weekend and will then take visits to Alabama and Ole Miss the following two weekends. He has already taken an official visit to Oklahoma. In his recent interviews at Under Armour, it felt like UF and Oklahoma were the two ahead, with Florida getting a nod a number of times- before he sent out his no leader tweet, in a video interview with FightinGators.com HERE, he said the Gators were his number one or number two school. I think at this point Robinson is Florida's to lose. 



Schools Involved: Alabama, Florida 

Update: Although he initially has set an official visit to Florida for next week it looks like there will be a scheduling conflict and Kendall Randolph might not be able to make it in or reschedule. The Alabama four-star pledge has only one more visit set and that is to see the Crimson Tide.



Schools Involved: Florida State, Florida, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Auburn.   

Update: Nothing new with Tony Gray and Florida. The offensive lineman from the Peach State is set to visit the Gators on the second weekend, Jan. 20. He will also visit ole Miss on Jan. 28. Gray has remained quite the mystery on the trail, however, was not shy about his love for the Gators after his first visit and at Under Armour. This could really go any which way. 



Schools Involved: Auburn, Florida and Maryland.   

Update: The Gators are a late addition to the party for Calvin Ashley. After his move to the DMV it seemed like the four-star offensive tackle and Auburn pledge would decide between Maryland and the Tigers. However, it looks like Florida has secured his last official visit, following his official to Tigers the week prior. Although the trend meter has a green arrow, because he is expected to visit so the trend has changed, a little word of warning. This will not be an easy flip for UF. As of right now many sources up north believe he will either stick with his pledge or head to College Park, however, if he does make it to Gainesville on that final weekend things could change. One to watch closely. 



Schools Involved: Louisville, Oklahoma State and Florida

Update:  Caleb Chandler looks to be a Louisville lean and is set to visit the Cardinals this upcoming weekend. However, Florida is the team that can play spoiler to the ACC squad. The lineman from Georgia could visit UF for the final weekend, if he did then the Gators I would say would neck and neck with Louisville. He is set to announce after he completes his visits.
