Florida college football recruiting: National Signing Day 2021 updates, early class rankings
Football

Welcome to OnlyGators.com’s coverage of National Signing Day as the Class of 2022 begins filling in during the early signing period. We will be with you all day updating every signed National Letter of Intent (NLI) and new commitment for the Florida Gators while reporting all of the breaking news in between.

This early signing period will be far different from most for Florida, which enters the day at 79th in the 247Sports Composite team rankings. The Gators were among the top 15 classes for most of the cycle but lackluster recruiting by former head coach Dan Mullen coupled with new head coach Billy Napier choosing not to retain many of Florida’s top commitments if they were unwilling to be reevaluated and wait to sign in February has seen the class fall sharply.

The Gators only have four on-field assistants hired for next season and enter the early signing period looking to add only specific prospects. It’s likely that Napier will try to load up the roster not only during the traditional National Signing Day in February but by utilizing the transfer portal. That will largely take Florida out of the news cycle this week but could also result in a couple splash signings if Napier & Co. can pull off some surprises.

As such, there is no specific watch list on this page, though five-star safety Kamari Wilson (Bradenton, FL), four-star linebacker Shemar James (Mobile, AL) and four-star safety Devin Moore (Naples, FL) are all prospects who could make surprise commitments. The Gators could also easily miss on all three, though that would not be an indictment on Napier.
