With only a little more than a month on the job before signing day 2015, new Florida coach Jim McElwain did a fantastic job of closing with a decent class this past recruiting cycle. The Gators finished with the nation's 20th-ranked class despite only having nine commits a few weeks before signing day. Now, in his first full year to recruit for Florida, the Gators are off to a solid start in the 2016 class. Florida has 13 commits, including two ranked in the ESPN 300.
