Junior days are underway, and the spring evaluation period is quickly approaching. While a number of programs are off to a fast start and in need of keeping impressive commitments in the fold, there also are programs in need of creating momentum and battling archrivals on the trail this spring and headed into the summer.
Here is a look at 10 programs that need a big spring, for various reasons (listed alphabetically):
The Gators saved the 2015 class in the days leading up to national signing day creating some momentum heading into the spring and summer.

Florida currently has three verbals, all outside the ESPN Junior 300.
These 10 traditional powers or programs on the rise either need to maintain momentum or gain some steam on the recruiting trail in the spring.
