    Updated 7/22/2017
    I'll try to keep it updated as things change.
    Gonna update it to signing 24 just because of all quality I've been convinced that we will make room. I'll even go out on a limb and say we finish 3-8. 8/13.
    I count 22 spots available in the class. I'll change that if someone convinces me otherwise. 6/21
    Estimated final ranking 6-10.

    I sure hope we have another class that is mostly DBs and has few or no linemen. That would be perfect.

    It's cobbled together from rivals, 247, bmf's updates and whatever else.

    Interesting thing is this. If the 100%s committed we'd be top 10 prolly higher. The remaining board is two 5*s who as of right now are favored to us and the rest 4*s. That's a pretty good class. Light on DTs but good targets.

    Note: I use Rivals star ratings and 247's crystal ball.

    4* DT Dante Stills
    /http://gridironnow.com/florida-final-3-4-star-dt-dante-stills-national-top-150-prospect

    gridironnow.com

    Florida is in final 3 for 4-star DT Dante Stills, a national top-150 prospect
    Gridiron Now
    3 minutes
    Four-star defensive lineman Dante Stills has trimmed his list of more than 20 offers down to a top three of Florida, Oklahoma and West Virginia.

    “Right now I’m just trying to take it slow,” Stills told GN. “A lot of people right now are releasing a top 10 and all that, but you don’t really need that. You just need a couple schools that you know for sure you want to visit or go to. So, I released my top three because that is going to help me out and help my family out with traveling and all that.”

    Stills (6 feet 4, 265 pounds), from Fairmont (W.Va.) High, is among the top-15 defensive tackles nationally and a top-150 overall prospect in the class in 2018.

    “I didn’t really think I would be this high in the rankings,” Stills said. “I knew I was going to work for it, and it’s truly a blessing because not a lot of guys get to experience the recruiting process.”

    Florida is one of the three finalists.

    “I picked Florida because I have a great relationship with (running backs) Coach (Ja’Juan) Seider,” Stills said. “He coached at West Virginia, so me and him have had a great relationship for I don’t know how long. I also have a good relationship with Coach (Chris) Rumph, the defensive line coach. In July I’m going to go visit Florida.

    “I’ve liked Florida since I was little. I used to watch Tim Tebow, and I liked him.”


    Oklahoma also made the list for Stills’ top three; does the retirement of Bob Stoops have an impact?

    “I didn’t expect it at all because after 18 years you usually keep going,” Stills said. “He’s a great coach and led them to a lot of Big 12 championships and I think he retired in a good way. I talked with Coach (Lincoln) Riley last week and we have a great relationship and he wants me to come down for a visit.

    “Coach Stoops retiring doesn’t really affect me because I didn’t get to know him all that much. I’m kind of glad he retired when I didn’t know him because if I would have known him, it would have hurt a little more.”

    “Florida and Oklahoma both send defensive linemen to the league, and that is what my main goal is.”

    Stills also has home state West Virginia in his top three.

    “There is a lot of pressure to go to West Virginia,” Stills said. “I mean, I only live like 15 or 20 minutes away. My dad went there and my brother is there right now.

    “My relationship with West Virginia is unbelievable and it’s like family. I can go up there and talk to them anytime I want. So, it’s really hard, and if I do leave it’s going to be tough.”

    Thanks for pulling that stuff together & sharing it. It's helpful to see it in one place.

    Seems to me momentum is building a bit. Hope so, but it's so hard to really tell until it firms up.

    Was having trouble with a 'script' issue on 247, but the biggest change I saw from Threat's OP were:
    K. Pope (LB) - was 33% and now at 20% for the Gators (80% for Buckynuts)
    D. Pierce (RB) - no % given for the Gators chances, but he's showing 100% to UGAly now

    Yep I think it's helpful and that's why I'm trying to get it stickied and I'll keep it updated as people share updates. That way if someone posts that Joe Scchmo scheduled an official visit or whatever we know if the guy was even on the board to begin with or whatever. It puts recruiting in perspective for guys like me that don't follow to closely.

    BMF posted in another thread about these three out of state guys. None of them are Crystal balled to us so I'm just gonna leave their names here in case something heats up.
    Rafiti Ghirmai 4* OT Texas.Florida made the cut this week for Rafiti Ghirmai, a 4-star lineman from Wakeland High School in Frisco. Alabama, LSU, Miami, Texas and UCLA rounded out his top 6. Has a longstanding relationship with Florida offensive line coach Brad Davis.
    Kwantel Raines, a 4-star safety from Aliquippa, Pa., plans to visit Florida on Friday. The Gators offered him on Feb. 13.
    Israel Mukuamu, a 3-star safety from Bossier City, La., received an offer Thursday from UF. He also holds offers from South Carolina and Ole Miss.

    That's a week or two before FNLs, and from what I've heard Pitts is coming with a couple of other targets that we're hoping to get. Would be a nice pickup before FNLs to get the ball rolling.
    That new crystal ball in the link shows he's increased from 42% to 46%, now ahead of VT (38%).

    wow, they must know something or the timing just makes too much sense. He just visited on the 10th, plus what Bart said.

    Oh, and one of the predictions is from a VT guy and he picked him for UF.

    Kid will be a solid pick up.
