Florida, with three early commitments, currently stands at No. 33 in the Rivals Recruiting Rankings. However, there are still 10 months remaining until Signing Day 2018 - meaning plenty can and will still happen along the way on the recruiting trail.

Xavier Thomas: His mother attended UF, he has family in the area and at one time he had Florida in his top 10, bu then announced it was down to the two in-state schools. But then has been on other visits and says he will continue to see other programs. One thing is certain, everyone is chasing Clemson and South Carolina. Thomas’ mother attended UF and he still has family in the area.

Malcolm Lamar: Florida is the dream school for this four-star pass rusher. He says he will take his time with a decision, but Florida seems to be the team to beat. He visited Gainesville last weekend.
