There are a lot of expectations for Ron Zook and his Florida Gators. Zook and his staff have worked very hard when it comes to recruiting. They sit at 8-3 with Florida State just ahead. A victory against the Seminoles could prove huge in the recruiting wars. An SEC crown may not be in their grasp but certainly victories over Georgia, Tennessee and FSU could loom large in regards to closing kids in the final two months of the recruiting season.
Over the past few weeks, TheInsiders.com has tabulated it's National Top 25 Recruiting Rankings. This week, the Florida Gators check in at #18. They will certainly have a great chance to move their way up the charts. The Top 25 is posted every Wednesday.
Note - We have also added a few wrinkles to each team such as average star rankings, average prospect rank of commitment, the headliner commit thus far and the "big fish on the hook." The later represents the biggest name prospect out there that that team has a good chance of signing. Obviously, with three months until Signing Day, the numbers and names will change. Junior College commitments will be included and so will some soft commitments. The definition of a soft commitment is a prospect publicly committing to a school but openly considering others. If we feel secure that he will honor the commitment, despite taking trips, we will include them with that team's commitment list. This is part of the subjective rankings. There is a key of definitions below the Top 25 table.
