William Barnes is planning to trim his list relatively soon. The Scout 150 offensive tackle told FightinGators.com that Florida, Ohio State, Florida State and North Carolina will make his list, however, he also mentioned that Michigan has now been communicating with him more in recent weeks. He is trying to take some visits this summer and he mentioned possibly taking a visit to Oregon. At this time Brad Davis has done well to continue to establish a connection with Barnes and Florida is in a good position. It also helps that Barnes talks to current Gators lineman Martez Ivey plenty.

Joe Milton is still considering a decision in the near future, however, on Thursday he admitted he might hold off a little longer. If he were to commit sooner, Michigan looks like the destination, however, things could turn the longer his recruitment goes. According to the Olympia High signal caller, the Gators have reached out more in recent days.

Tyler Bentley receiver an offer from the Gators this week and Florida do have a shot. The three-star defensive tackle says he and his dad are fans of the program and are trying to set out time for visits. 

http://www.scout.com/college/florida/player/197821-shaquon-anderson-butts

Shaquon Anderson-Butts is a top wide receiver from Pennsylvania that calls Florida a dream offer. It looked like Penn State was the team to beat for a while, but with his best friend, five-star Micah Parsons decommitting from the Nittany Lions, can another school take the reigns?

Azeez Ojulari holds offer from Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Maryland, NC State and Tennessee among others. The defensive end hopes to visit UF. 

2019

Jaden Davis picked up recent offers from Florida and Iowa State. He will be a four-star in the new Scout rankings. Before his offers from the Gators, the cornerback named Kentucky and Syracuse as the two schools standing out-obviously things were early. 

2020

Aydin Henningham is another 2020 prospect to watch. The wide receiver's stock slowly is rising and has picked up SEC offers from Florida, Tennessee and Kentucky.
