Five incoming Florida transfers make 247Sports top-150 rankings
The Florida Gators brought in 10 players through the transfer portal over the winter and four of them made the final update to the 247Sports Top150 transfer rankings.
Defensive lineman Caleb Banks is the highest-ranked Gator on the list. The Louisville transfer is No. 82 overall on the Top150 with a transfer grade of 91. Kentucky offensive tackle transfer Kiyaunta Goodwin is next up at No. 96, and Memphis defensive line transfer CamRon Jackson is just outside the top 100 at No. 110 overall.
Baylor offensive guard transfer Micah Mazzccua is No. 138 on the list and former Wisconsin quarterback Graham Mertz rounds things out at No. 150. Both have a transfer grade of 90, meaning Florida is bringing in five players of the caliber or better.
On the other hand, Florida lost two players ranked in the top 150, offensive guard Ethan White (No. 131) to USC and defensive back Donovan McMillon (No. 143) to Pittsburgh.
The hope is that White’s departure will be offset by Mazzccua, but there’s no clear replacement for McMillon. Fortunately, the Gators focused heavily on defensive backs in the most recent recruiting cycle.
Although they didn’t make 247Sports’ list of the top transfers, Florida is counting on guys like linebacker Teradja Mitchell, running back Cameron Carroll and offensive tackle Damieon George to contribute. There was a ton of roster turnover during the offseason and there are several starting spots up for grabs.
It’s too early to tell how well Florida did in the transfer portal this offseason, but the early returns seem good.
Despite all the hype there's one major question looming over Anthony Richardson
